Newcastle United 3 – 2 Barcelona


When you’re hot you’re hot and when you’re not you’re…a bit of a maniac. Such was the way of Tino Asprilla. I’ve never been a Geordie, but from what I can gather, they don’t mind the odd bit of insanity as long as you can contribute in some way. And a hat trick against the mighty Catalans in the Champions League is a belter of a contribution, you would have to say. As it stood, these were the last of Asprilla’s goals and he was shipped off to Parma soon after, presumably to continue being an unpredictable, meandering loonball with them (again).
