Blackpool Rocks! This much is true.
22/5/09 - The arrival of Saint Holloway
22/5/10 - Promotion to the Premiership at Wembley
22/5/11 - Heartbreak at Old Trafford - (I reckon it could've been 3-3 without the own goal and just one more shot on target earlier on)
27/6/11 - This DVD arrives through my letterbox and a joy to behold for future generations it sure is.
I can remember us sitting on the Wigan stand behind the goal for our first game of the season, in the baking heat, it was funny having a great view of 3 of the 4 goals but it wasn't like we could celebrate!
This DVD is a really good collection of goals, an inside and outside look at our season, incluiding interviews. It contains historical archive footage of first division action 40 years ago. Great editing too, some very funny shots and it really does feel like you're there experiencing the excitement of those top flight games. The new East stand only 5 minutes old and playing host to the biggest fans in the game, I attended way more games than I thought I would, including Man U, Tottenham and Chelsea.
What a season, what a ride, we were the team that livened up proceedings pretty much wherever we played, no-one had a bad word to say about us, well apart from Preston..! Thanks to Charlie Adam, Puncheon, Vaughan, Campbell and everyone for making the game interesting, this DVD is for keeps. Really glad I bought this, glad all over.
A REAL story, and one worth telling in a modern game run by the money men and big teams.
