Blackburn Rovers
Just about the only thing we can brag about in this division :lol:

14th May 1995.
Blackburn Rovers were champions of England; a small mill town in East Lancashire, having only just witnessed promotion to the top tier after 26 years in the lower leagues 3 years previously, finally had something to shout about. All thanks to one man, Jack Walker.

We've had this debate, United spent a little more on that squad but it was over 8 years not 3

One of my pals still supports Blackburn and all because of that season.

Glory hunting gone wrong!

I was at Silverstone watching Damon Hill in the British F1 Grand Prix, ended up pretty much missing the whole of the race to watch the football in a cooperate tent, was only 17 nailing free ale & quaffing free sandwiches all day. It's this day I realised how boring motor racing is, the one and only occasion I've ever been to a 'live' race.
