I’m Daniel Chapman, a writer and editor, also known as Moscowhite, because of the internet. From 2013 to 2017 I edited The City Talking magazine, and since 2011, have co-edited The Square Ball fanzine, seeing it through its 25th anniversary. During that time, The Square Ball has been shortlisted for the Football Supporters’ Federation Fanzine of the Year award six times, and won twice.

In 2017 I wrote Do You Want To Win?, a book and film about Leeds and Leeds United from 1988 to 1992, the years when Howard Wilkinson took over from Billy Bremner, and took over everything. You can watch the trailer and order the book and DVD here.

I’m on Twitter here (and here), Instagram here (and here). You can sign up to a mailing list here, and email me at moscowhite@thesquareball.net.
