adj.— «Many defenders does not a great defence make, as Forest discovered when Bart-Williams sliced a ball against his own post. Deane gleefully poked it into the waiting net as it rebounded along the goalline. Dave Bassett, the Forest general manager, afterwards dubbed the goal “spawny” and the epithet was accurate.» —“Bassett’s petrified Forest seem resigned to their fate” by Mark Hodkinson Times (London, England) Apr. 21, 1997.
