Nostalgia is not what it used to be.

For anyone who has recently had the yearning to return to their youth ( where ever you have stashed that youth) here is a good idea for a Christmas present. I would like it, certainly.

Victor the Best of Alf Tupper the Tough of the Track: Britain's Favourite Comic-book Athlete: Amazon.co.uk: Morris Heggie: Books
I wonder what Alf would make of modern athletics, with its preening and narcissistic participants, their cheating and protesting, legal challenges, sponsors and advertising. Big business.

It'd be nice to see him whup the arse off "role models" like Chambers and Christie. Heh. Fish 'n' Chips vs. THG and Nandrolone.

I always thought Coe was a weasel, but fair play to the man he was straight in athletics. Maybe Alf should be elevated to the peerage.

On the same page on the Amazon site are some rather nice other comic books. Shame I can't blag them for review purposes!

As a welder Alf would have been unemployed for decades so more time for training - he'd leave the modern pansies in his dust.
