1986 Full Members' Cup Final

The 1986 Full Members' Cup final was a football match which took place at Wembley Stadium on 23 March 1986. It was the final of the inaugural Full Members' Cup, the competition created in the wake of the 1985 ban on English clubs from European competitions following the Heysel disaster. Contested between First Division sides Chelsea and Manchester City, the game produced nine goals, with Chelsea prevailing 5–4. Chelsea had led 5–1 courtesy of David Speedie’s hat-trick and a brace by Colin Lee, but Manchester City scored three times in the last five minutes to give the Blues a scare.[1] Rougvie's own goal, the result of a shot by City's Lillis, denied Lillis the consolation of having scored the fastest hat trick in Wembley history at that point. Both clubs had played First Division games the previous day; Chelsea a 1-0 victory over Southampton, Manchester City a 2-2 draw with local rivals Manchester United. Ten players from each side featured in both games over the weekend.[2]

1985–86 Chelsea F.C. season

In the 1985-86 season Chelsea played in the First Division for the second successive season.

It was the first season under the management of John Hollins, who had previously been a member of Chelsea's victories in the 1970 FA Cup Final and 1971 European Cup Winners' Cup Final. On 1 January 1986 Chelsea were second, two points behind leaders Manchester United and in March the club were still in second, four points behind Everton with two games in hand. The two games in hand were lost 4–0 at home to West Ham United and 6–0 away at Queens Park Rangers. After gaining just 9 points from a possible 33 in the last 11 games, Chelsea finished 6th for the second season in succession.On 23 March 1986 Chelsea won the 1986 Full Members Cup Final 5–4 at Wembley Stadium against Manchester City with David Speedie (the club's joint top scorer in the league along with Kerry Dixon on 14 goals) scoring Chelsea's only Wembley hat-trick. Colin Lee scored Chelsea's other two goals. Due to the widespread negativity over English football after the 1985 Heysel disaster, victorious manager Hollins was quoted as saying "If football is dying, I hope it's dying like that".After an away win at Shrewsbury Town in the 3rd round of the FA Cup, Chelsea lost 2–1 at home to eventual Champions Liverpool in the fourth round.In the 1985-86 Football League Cup Chelsea beat Mansfield Town in a two-legged second round but required replays to advance past Fulham and Everton in the subsequent rounds.
