THE TIGER YEARS! Relive the best Roy of the Rovers stories from the 1970s in this exciting anthology of reprinted classic strips, celebrating over 65 years of the iconic football comic.

It was the decade in which footballers became real superstars – a time when Melchester goalkeeper Charlie Carter had to choose between staying at the club or perusing a burgeoning career as a pop singer. And it was a period when Roy Race truly cemented himself as the heart, soul and brain of the club by taking on the role of player manager.
