The Blizzard: Sheffield Wednesday 3-4 Tottenham, 1994

There’s a Tottenham flavour in today’s episode of Greatest Games, in association with The Blizzard. We’re joined by The Athletic’s Jack Pitt-Brooke to discuss the opening day of the 1994/95 Premiership season, as Spurs took on Sheffield Wednesday.


In his first full season in charge, Ossie Ardiles’ Spurs side looked to establish an exciting and intoxicating brand of football based on the technical skill of the European talent they acquired that summer. Ilie Dumitrescu and Jurgen Klinsmann were among those in this new-look, attacking Spurs side that played out a cracking match against Trevor Francis’ Sheffield Wednesday – featuring seven goals and one of the most infamous celebrations in modern English football.
