The Blizzard: Liverpool 2-1 Blackburn, 1995
On today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard we head back to another epic Premiership finale. The Irish Times' and Second Captains’ Ken Early joins us to remember Blackburn’s title win on the final day of the 1994/95 season, despite a 2-1 defeat at Anfield.
Blackburn needed to win or hope title rivals Manchester United didn’t beat West Ham, to clinch their first title in more than 80 years. Many Liverpool fans at Anfield found themselves in the curious position of wanting their team to lose to Blackburn and thus denying their bitter rivals the title, as their treasured son Kenny Dalglish sat in the Blackburn dugout. Ken, Marcus and Jonathan remember the buildup to this pivotal final day that was the culmination of this season-long battle between the definitive Premier League juggernaut and their new challengers looking to halt a third successive title triumph.
