The Blizzard: Everton 3-2 Wimbledon, 1994
We’re headed up to Liverpool for today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard, for a classic escape from relegation. On the docket today is the final day of the 1993/94 season, as Everton had their last roll of the dice against Wimbledon, and we’re joined by author and deCoubertin Books principle James Corbett!
After a fantastic period of success in the 1980’s, the turn of the decade brought about tougher times for the Toffees. Everton were actually one of the key five drivers in forming the then-Premiership but looked ill-equipped to deal with the change, after many senior players followed Howard Kendell out the door in the late 80s and early 90s. There were four other teams in the mix for relegation as the final round of fixtures arrived and, after going 2-0 down against Wimbledon, all hope looked lost - but Everton performed the impossible. We discuss a miraculous comeback on that nerve-shredding afternoon at Goodison Park, as fans in the adjoining Stanley Park climbed various trees in hopes of watching one of the most significant ever matches in their club’s history.
