 John Barnes (footballer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
John Charles Bryan Barnes (born November 7, 1963 in Kingston, Jamaica) was a hugely successful and well known Jamaican-born English football player of the 1980s and 1990s, and was once the manager of Celtic F.C.
Barnes made his debut in 1981 and under manager Graham Taylor, Watford gained promotion to the top flight of English football and made the 1984 FA Cup final, where they were beaten 2-0 by Everton.
Barnes was, in his early years at Liverpool, having to deal with racist abuse from opposing (especially Everton) supporters and far-right groups — a famous photograph was once taken of Barnes, in full Liverpool kit and mid-match, casually backheeling away a banana which had been hurled at him.

John Barnes was perhaps one of the most talented players to play for Liverpool.
The only sad thing for Barnes is that after a number of great seasons his career was hit with a few injuries that prevented much of his greatest wing play and will often be remembered wrongly for his last seasons of team frustration in the nineties.
Barnes was signed by Kenny Dalglish in the summer of 1987 for £900,000 from Watford and along with the signing of Peter Beardsley he slotted into the team that resulted in the book 'Better than the Brazilians'.

John Barnes, then a young Watford winger, dribbled his way past Brazilian defender after defender as if the ball were tied to his toes before slotting home the most breathtaking of goals.
Perhaps no English player has ever had to endure the level of vicious racist abuse that was directed at him by the people who claimed to be fans of the national football team, yet Barnes chose to blank the taunts.
We should worry that players can clearly be seen on millions of TV screens every week abusing officials and opposition alike in language that should not be waved through as acceptable in any walk of life.

 Sports: XFL promises football, with no leaps from the top rope
Whereas the United States Football League failed because of its gargantuan contracts and its challenge to compete with the NFL, the XFL, with its fixed salaries and spring schedule, seems to have learned a valuable lesson: There will be no competition to the league in February and March, unless you count figure skating.
For example, players need only one foot inbounds on receptions, quarterbacks can't slide, there are no fair catches on punts and the ball is live after 25 yards, halftime is 10 minutes, and teams have 35 seconds to get off plays instead of the NFL's 45 seconds.
No players currently under contract to other professional football teams or leagues are eligible for the draft, which will eliminate current CFL players until Dec. 1, when the league holds a supplemental draft.

John Stevens was a contestant on the third season of American Idol -- the season that had a notable lack of male contestants.
Each of these four contestants -- who represented a third of the grand total of 12 finalists -- had their own niche, but Stevens stood out because he specialized in the Great American Songbook, which is a roundabout way of saying that he was a Frank Sinatra wannabe.
John did a wonderful job on this cd and the band sounds amazing.
