The 93-94 season start slowly for Wednesday. With Hirst and Warhurst up front the goals failed to come, and soon Warhurst was off to Blackburn for 2.7 million.
Wednesday were drawing far too many matches which they should have been winning, but at least the scoring touch was returning.
The Ipswich away game at the start of November really turned things around with a resounding 4-1 win and from then on Wednesday only lost two matches until February. This saw them through to the semi-finals of the league cup, where Manchester United were the opponents, and the fourth round of the FA Cup against Chelsea. Both these games were lost though leaving the season a little flat with nothing really to play for.
This resulted in an unbeaten run in with a couple of 5 goal scorelines and a final placing of seventh in the league.
The game of the season was West Ham at home, where one man took them apart, Chris Waddle. He made three of the goals, scored another and generally gave David Burrows a day to have nightmares about forever more. How Graham Taylor didn't pick him for England will remain one of life's mysteries.
