Personalised Football Calendar - Blackburn Rovers
Bring A Smile To The Face Of A Blackburn Fan!
Blackburn Rovers has swung from one football extreme to the other over the years! From a successful pre-war era, the club sunk towards twenty-six years of hurt outside football’s top division, before then winning the Premiership within three years of their promotion. Steered through the highest points of the Rovers rollercoaster by owner Jack Walker and Manager Kenny Dalglish, many football fans are still gasping at the incredible success of Uncle Jack’s five-year plan!
I Just Love It has found some original newspaper reports on a selection of highlights from Blackburn's history, incorporating FA Cup success in the 1920s and the incredible Jack Walker era that included promotion to the Premiership. Collated in a smart A3 Calendar, this great gift idea is a useful way to keep track of your schedule, whilst doubling up as a fantastic item of sport nostalgia.
These A3 Calendar Gifts can start from any month and include a wonderful variety of newspaper reports.
In addition to the highlights mentioned above, the Blackburn Calendar also includes: ‘The King presents the Cup to Blackburn’, an account of the Rovers’ sixth FA Cup win that took place in 1928; ‘Savage Attack on County’, an article detailing a 6-1 mauling of Notts County in 1976; ‘Rovers Take Short Cut’, a newspaper piece describing the 5-0 thrashing of Burnleyin one of Blackburn’s successful promotion years, and ‘ I Love It’, which is the headline accompanying a report on the very convincing 2005 win over Charlton.
These Football Calendars also feature the incredible 5-4 victory against Crystal Palace from 1988. This was a season that had excited supporters of the Rovers immensely, as it was the first promotion challenge the club had put together in years. There is also a piece written about the purchase of Chris Sutton for the British transfer record in 1994, which then stood at £5 million pounds.
