The New Barry Horne?

 16 Comments: First  |  Last

He bothers the net about once a season, and when he does it's always from an improbably long way out.

How can you compare the two, Barry Horne was part of the legendary 'Dogs of War' while Pip god bless his cotton socks,is just well..a dog!!
As good as P-Nev's goals are, Barry Horne will always have 'that' goal against Wimbledon and for this alone he's a Legend!

John Motson Euro 96.." the Germans have equalized.....kuntz......!"

Did he also in the same match say " and it´s seamen dribbling out of the box" or am I making it up?

Very good Eugene. But i can't believe none of you mentioned John Motson telling the viewers who were watching in B/W that Liverpool are the ones in red!!

I know it's an old one but still worth a mention.

Just outside the penalty area is not an "improbably long way out." Oh well, improbable for Neville perhaps. Barry Horne is a legend, Phil Neville a nuisance.

Motty was on a roll that tournament, Rob. During one match David Seaman tried to clear a cross and managed to punch one of the centre backs in the head. Motty?s verdict was something along the lines of ?he?s fisted the defender!?.

Neville is nothing like Horne.

Barry will forever be a part of Goodison folklore of THAT goal against Wimbledon in '94, even though he scored one that was twice as good for Southampton in an FA cup tie two or three years before it.
