The Got, Not Got Advent Calendar – Day 13

We are now over the halfway mark in the big December GOT NOT GOT challenge… one retro football post every day until Christmas Day… we can do it, especially with your help.

Many thanks to both David Tossell and Neil MacLeod who sent us this December 1978 ‘Roy of the Rovers’ featuring a festive Tommy Docherty decorating a very sparse tree.

Inside Doc poses for the camera and points out the story header for Tommy’s Troubles.
Quite apposite as his libel case against Willie Morgan and Granada TV had just collapsed.

You’d better be good for goodness sake, if you want the retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’… runner-up in this year’s Footy Book of the Year, in your Christmas stocking (pillow case).
