Having guided Sheffield Wednesday to promotion to the First Division and League Cup glory the previous season, Ron Atkinson left Wednesday for Aston Villa (in somewhat controversial circumstances, having claimed that he was staying on at Wednesday before departing a week later). He was replaced by striker Trevor Francis, who juggled his playing responsibilities with his management role.
Under Francis, Wednesday enjoyed a fabulous season, finishing third, behind Leeds United and Manchester United and ahead of bigger clubs like Liverpool and Arsenal; this gave Wednesday qualification to the UEFA Cup.
Despite their overall good form, Wednesday still found themselves on the receiving ends of the season's heaviest home (6–1 to Leeds) and away (7–1 to Arsenal) defeats. Wednesday also lost both of that season's derbies against arch-rivals Sheffield United, losing 1–3 at home and 2–0 at Bramall Lane.
The 1992–93 season established Sheffield Wednesday as a top club as they visited Wembley four times during the season – a League Cup final and an FA Cup semi-final, final and replay. In the FA Cup semi-finals they recorded an historic win over the city rivals Sheffield United, 2–1.
However Wednesday failed to win any silverware, losing to Arsenal in both League and FA Cup finals, the latter after Andy Linighan's late extra-time winner in the replay to give The Gunners the victory.
