Not sure about that mate, the quality of the league has improved considerably in a number of ways since 1994. I'm not sure that Rovers team would be title contenders matched against the same players of today.

Surely that's a bit like saying England's Euro 96 team wouldn't beat today's crop of wasters.....

I know who I'd back.

The Scum double winning team of 93-94 is arguably the best team of the last 20 years and we pushed them all the way.

It isn't really comparable to the England national team at all.

The Premiership as a division has far more quality now and is far more competitive than it was in 1993/1994, or 1994/1995. That's not to diminish the achievements of our players during that time, but if those same group of players were to play in the current climate I'm not sure they'd be as successful as they were back then.

Flowers, Hendry, Le Saux, Berg, Batty, Ripley and of course Shearer would still be good to excellent premiership players IMO. Not so sure about the others. Would players like Slater, Wilcox, Warhurst, Newell, Pearce, Atkins or even Sherwood be anywhere near as effective now as they were back then? We'd be challenging in the top half, but I'm not sure we'd be breaking the top four.

Just my opinion, though. It's entirely possible I'm underestimating the talents of some squad members - players like Sherwood, Sutton, Newell, Gallacher are debatable.

I don't know if it is on the videos but my favourite Shearer goal was a scissor kicked volley from around the penalty spot - I think against Southampton. Awesome player and such a shame it turned so sour for a while.

I can't decide if I should wear it or frame it. It brings back great memories.

Certainly not when you've got Liberia's deficit in your Sky Rocket!

It was the numbers that swung it for me. Old school Asics, hard to come by these days.
