1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Fernando is finding it difficult to adjust
To the pace of the premiership
Said our manager.
Too much grass on the pitches
Said his agent.
Fernando, explained his interpreter
Feels he is not being played in his favoured position
Which is a holding role
In a diamond formation
Or just in front of the defence
As a sweeper in a flat back Four.
Fernando agrees the fans have not seen
Him at his best
But insists he loves The Toon
And can be found most nights
Down The Bigg Market.
Our Chairman wept openly
As he studied Fernando’s
Lucrative Five year contract.
