Right back nomenclature

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Just what is it –
About our right back position
That brings such sameness
To the christened cognition?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Not so much Albert, Paulo and now Alvaro
But Ferrer, Fereira, Pereira
Is it so long ago
Since Locke and Swain, and the “Chopper” bearer?

as per Emily Williams – yes, Deadline Day – doncha just love it!

I know I know, Kenny Swain was more midfield, and he moved to right back after leaving us, but it just scanned better than Paddy Mulligan or John Boyle.

And yes I know: Pereira never joined us!
This poem was inspired during the last day of the 2011 transfer window, when it looked during the day, that he might indeed be joining us!
