A Carli Lloyd Cover Trick

Soccer quarterly is in perfect sync with the FIFA times.

The summer issue of Howler magazine, a quarterly, hit newsstands May 29.

And while a lot of magazines could have come up within this particular production time frame with the idea of Sepp Blatter being the target of some cover fun, it takes a special sense of FIFA/FIFA foresight to tee up that fun at the foot of Carli Lloyd. Looking at the cover now, there’s an extra sense of delight knowing just how hard and far #10 can pinpoint that allegedly corrupt noggin’.

Per the Issue #8 cover lines “Bad Parma: The Sorry State of Italian Soccer” and “Sepp’s Blather,” the Howler gang also know their way around a catchy headline. To editor George Quraishi, cover illustration artist Kemi Mai and colleagues, we say: “Bravooooooooooooo!”
