Is this Blackburn Rovers’ greatest ever football shirt?

The Short List published their 20 best Premier League shirts and in at number 11 was this amazing 1994 Blackburn Rovers, asics football shirt with draw string collar.

Why is it great?

A Blackburn shirt doesn’t need much work to be great. Keep it simple and let the unusual half-and-half design speak for itself. Little touches of (Lancashire rose) red make it even more vibrant.

Fond memories?

Rovers won the the 1994-95 Premier League title wearing this, so fond is an understatement. Every neutral in the country wanted them to get one over on United. The following season was less memorable: they finished seventh in the Premier League and bottom of their Champions League group. The astonishing on-pitch fight between David Batty and Graeme Le Saux took place while they wore their boring away kit thankfully.

Check out our marketplace where we’ve dropped 20% off our vintage football shirts including this Damien Duff beauty.  Ends tonight.
