New Roy of the Rovers comic!

article 1287065 09FD89DC000005DC 944 306x395 popup New Roy of the Rovers comic!
Okay, it’s just a reprint:

It will rekindle fond memories for those who grew up with the greatest footballer who never lived – and will introduce a new generation of fans to a golden age when soccer stars actually set a good example to youngsters. Roy Race never swore, didn’t spit, and always played fair. He would never be seen in a brothel, didn’t steal anyone’s girlfriend, and displayed uncommon loyalty to his beloved Melchester Rovers in the face of a string of lucrative offers. When ‘Racey’ put on the England shirt, a nation stood proud.


Frankly, we don’t care, just so long as he has that awesome ’80s hair.

    … and then Roy was sold to Leeds United.

    Never knew Roy Race. But have fond memories of Roel Dijkstra (A dutch football…er…soccer comic) and Captain Tsubasa.

    Is that John Constantine in the back row?
