Horne's Huddersfield Memories

Horne's Huddersfield Memories

Barry Horne is a name synonymous with Everton - but the last time the Blues faced Huddersfield the former Welsh international was wearing the Terriers' shirt.

And having experienced the thrill of facing the Blues at Goodison for a side lower down the footballing ladder, the man who was the heartbeat of Everton's 1995 FA Cup winning squad has issued a warning to David Moyes' men.

"The attitude then was to enjoy playing at a big ground against a big club," recalls Horne. "I think they will have a similar attitude this time as well as fancying their chances of maybe causing an upset. I think Everton will progress but I don't think it will be easy."

Indeed, it wasn't easy for Everton when the sides faced each other in 1998. They were drawn together at the same stage of the competition early in the 1998/99 campaign in a two-legged affair.

Everton narrowly won through to the next round courtesy of a 3-2 aggregate win with the Goodison leg decisive, courtesy of a narrow 2-1 victory.

The Blues had Olivier Dacourt and Marco Materazzi to thank for turning the game in Everton's favour after a Marcus Stewart opener inside the first minute stunned the home fans.

"It was a bit strange because obviously we were the underdogs," explains Horne, who made 71 appearances for the Terriers. "It was a close game and I got a good reception but I didn't enjoy not winning, so it was mixed feelings.

"After Everton I had three really good seasons at Huddersfield. It is a good club, it's obviously an old club and one which is on the up and up with a young manager, a good coaching team and a good start to the season as well so I am looking forward to it.

"I keep an eye on them because I enjoyed my time there and I am expecting them to get promoted this year to be honest with you."
