Frankie, my dear

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 of all the goals
in all the towns
in all the world
you had to score into ours

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 it just had to be scripted
the inevitability
so obvious
as soon as he crept into the box

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 wearing blue
but a different hue
it hurts
as much as it shocks

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 oh how JT tried
with a trademark slide
to execute
one of his quality blocks

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 but at least his ol’ mucker
did not pucker
to kiss the crest
or beat his chest

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 although that goal
on the whole
left us deflated –
he never celebrated

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 though that’s his job
he closed his gob
knowing
it left us in a jam…

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 yet he cared
enough to be spared
because Frankie my dear….
we do give a damn!

Notes

September 21st 2014

Man City 1 Chelsea 1
Guess who scored against us!

Moved to New York City after being released by the Blues, he returns to the Premiership on loan to Man City.

Frank was given a standing ovation when he came on as sub, and again at the end of the match.

Though we were silenced by the inevitable goal in the ‘wrong’ net!!!
