Nuno Espiríto Santo

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Last season we bought players
Thirteen in through the door
The fans were loving it
And still they wanted more.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But it turned into a disaster
There really was no hope
With a squad of thirty-four
The manager couldn’t cope.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 So Walter went and Lambert came
But the basic problem stayed the same
Too many players, doomed to fail
And Lambert’s coat on a shaky nail.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 And so the clear out came at last
This pantomime now would have a different cast
With fifteen players out the door
They then recruited eleven more.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Of the thirteen players only three remain
And we thought it might be the same again
But Fosun it seems have made their last gaffe
And brought in Nuno with his backroom staff.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Big players, big talent, big money spent
But Fosun it seems will not relent
Their aim is promotion and have no doubt
They’ll do what it takes to bring that about.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 New thinking, new methods, a new style of play
With the quality plain to see on the opening day
With Molineux rocking, ‘Boro were here
And now we know we have no-one to fear.



As opening days go, I can’t recall a better one.
