5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Football Book 27 July 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought this for my 10 year old son as he loves football and I had previously bought him Roy of the Rovers best of the 80's. He really enjoyed reading both these books as there are no football comic magazines around any more. Bring back Roy of the Rovers on a weekly basis!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! 23 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
I bought the 1980's version of this book sometime ago and got this for my Son's 10th Birthday.

Although only 10, he does love this book and says there are no other comics/books like it.

Its been a long time since I used to read Roy of the Rovers....!!! ;0)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic nostalgia! 2 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recently came across some old ROTR comics and annuals in my loft and it really gave me a burst of nostalgia. I was delighted to find this and the 80's collection available and bought this straight away.

Maybe I am a little too old to be reading this, but to be honest I don't care. I read about 30 pages in bed every night. The stories may have dated a tad, but it's always fun to see Roy laying down how things SHOULD be done and how the game SHOULD be played.

A cracking read for any ROTR fan and once I finish this I'll be getting the 80's collection asap!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 15 July 2011
By Sean
Format:Paperback
The Roy of the Rovers annuals are great reads, reminds me of the great times of a comic costing 7p! What value!
It was great following the storyline of Roy, what an innocent time w lived in.
Would of liked to have read other story lines as well, the Hard Man and the Safest hands in soccer, to name but two.
Overall a great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Memories 19 April 2011
Format:Paperback
If like me you're a 40 something football fan, and as a child spent your pocket money on comics, then this will bring back fond memories of the ever young Roy Race and other such characters like Blackie Gray, Lofty Peaks + Charlie 'the cat' Carter.
If you want a bit of nostalgia, this compiliation comes highly recommended.
If only someone would bring Roy of the Rovers back for the modern era....
