Roy of the Rovers: The Best of the 1970s - The Tiger Years, Hardback Book

Roy of the Rovers: The Best of the 1970s - The Tiger Years Hardback

Illustrated by Yvonne Hutton, David Sque

Part of the Roy of the Rovers - Classics series



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. The seventies was a very turbulent time in Britain.

Following on from the optimism of the sixties, the country faced a decade of strikes and power cuts.

Luckily for the fans of Melchester Rovers, Roy Race and his loyal time mates provided great moments of glory for their fans, starting with European Cup final win in 1973 in the year that the club celebrated its 50th anniversary. 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.
