While the Shepherd’s watched.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Post a letter off to Santa
And make your feelings clear
State exactly what you want
Then sign it Joe Kinnear.
Explain that you have behaved yourself
And you’re a friendly sort of lad
But sometimes when you’re angry
Your language gets quite bad.
Remind him you’re O.K. for after-shave
Socks and underwear
No material things are desired
But has he any cash to spare?
Tell him you approached Mike Ashley
And pleaded with Dennis Wise
But their hands stay in their pockets
Which comes as no surprise.
And if the club is relegated
Those Two will share the blame
So please bring me ‘The good Shepherd ‘
Freddy’s our saviours name.


For all TOON fans who raised a glass at the departure of our ex chairman and a Geordie Freddy Shepherd. Better the devil you know and all that. Happy Christmas to everyone out there.
