    Even though Barnes was massive he just seemed to go through players. Not around them. Just sort of through them.

    Nah. The switch of pace and such close control... Barnes couldn't have scored that goal against City, I can't think of anyone else bar Suarez who could.

    But this isn't a Barnes diss topic. He was the very best at the time.

    You might be right, Suarez would have. If it wasn't for Kuyt.

    Yes - Barnes sort of needed his own momentum, and close control to carry him through defenses. He wasn't a stop start kinda player. Salah's goal against City was something else that Barnes probably didn't have. However, you can say the same of Salah, he definitely doesn't have a lot of what was in Barnes' locker.

    Did I ever tell you about 24 hours I had in Reykjavík hanging around with Bruce Grobbelaar. It was brilliant. We paid him to make a celebrity experience, and he did not disappoint from start to finish. We went around the town and people's reactions were simply hilarious. Last I saw, I put him in a cab at 4am to the airport.

    Favorite manager? Kenny
