Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Mark Meehan and Dayne Whittle to look back at the 1994-95 season.
Having reached the FA Cup final in his first season as player-manager, Glen Hoddle embarked on his second season with sights set on European glory, as Chelsea entered the European Cup Winners’ Cup for the second time in their history.
With new signings Paul Furlong and David Rocastle, the new season in the Premier League started well, but it was in Europe that the team really began to grow.
In Part One we look at the season up to the end of December including the wins against Leeds away, Leicester at home and Everton at home when the new ‘North Stand’ was opened. But it was the European games against Zizkov and Austria Wien, John Spencer’s goal after a 70 yard run in particular, that got everyone off their feet.
