      I ordered Issue 551 from Panini a fortnight ago and as it has still not arrived, I have now bought it from Tesco. I appreciate that deliveries are taking much longer these days. Fortunately, my subscription starts with Issue 552 and so I should get future copies much quicker now.

    Always got mine from WHSmith since 2005. As they are mainly closed in high streets have to go to supermarkets. Tesco and Sainsburys always have it in stock for anyone who’s finding it hard to get a copy.

    i ordered issue 550 the day it came out and ive emailed a few times and theyve said theyll resend but i dont think they have, might as well ask for a refund and order issue 550 again as well as 551 together to save money on postage?
