Saw it in W.H.Smiths and Tesco today, £3.99 not many pages, I didn't buy it but will tomorrow.

It has 52 pages, so it's the same page count as last year's Egmont Classics.

Bought mine yesterday it's great a lot better then I expected as it not only has Roy of the Rover strips in but 'Andy Steel Playermaker' & 'Goalmouth' Strips.

Lew I picked it up it just felt so thin I thought it can't have many pages in so it was a nice surprise to find it had 52 pages.

I mentioned the other strips and the 52 pages when I reviewed it last week:

I see there's someone trying to sell one on eBay for £7.50!

Heh, that won't sell. Surely people will be able to read the cover price - or did they not supply a picture?

Managed to pick this up from my local Smiths on Friday. Not had a chance to read it yet, I'd like to read it while England are still in the World Cup, guess I'd better hurry up :cry: .

Don't worry England have just flown Roy over to join the squad.
We will win on wednesday.

One disappointing thing about this special is that one of the five stories inside is also in the ROTR World Cup book! There’s really no excuse for duplicating this story with all the stuff available in the archives

Typical. Anyway, I've spotted the All About ROTR comic in Martin McColls newsagents.
