Is This A First….For Us?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 We were rolling in dough as everyone knows
Since an oligarch and his millions stepped in
Last season we won a couple of trophies
Afore that we’d two premiership wins.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But the present is what I’m concerned with
And what comes next I’m somewhat philosophic
It seems we’ve just sold a diving Dutchman to Madrid
And for the first time in dealings….made a profit.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We’d buy them and sell them, then loan them all out
We’d money to burn, it would seem
But this close season, there’s been a complete turn about
Most of the deals that we’ve done have been ‘free’s’.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 So a whinger has gone and the money spent on
A fast fleet of foot brand new face
Let’s hope that this flyer who’s taken his place
Can embrace our teams way with his pace!



Don’t hold me to it, but I believe the Robben transfer, if it goes through and the London papers are very low key on it, could be the very first time we’ve made a profit on a transfer deal since Roman(and I’m loaded) Abramo’rich came to the club and bailed us out of trouble.

I don’t quite know what this means but anyway….it’s afirst!

When you’ve won sweet F.A.for years, like us. All first’s seem to stick in yer mind for some strange reason.
