Just thought this might interest a few people.

Fernando is on the Frontline Football programme, about the competetive nature of matches between Colombia and Venezuela.

Apparently he's currently based in Norway.

For those who don't rememeber, De Ornelas played for us during our darkest days of administration for free.

Yer saw the last 10 minutes. Unusually from BBC Football and their Pro-Chelscum coverage, FrontLine football is an excellent watch.

Is it repeated at all during the week?

Good question. I don't think so (one of my gripes about the BBC's digital service, the best programs hardly ever get repeated) but if it is, its likely to be on BBC3 sometime soon. Let me check...

Shabby, very shabby.

Because of the time it was on, and it wasnt advertised at all, this is the sort of thing a lot of people would have missed, shame because it was an excellent set of programmes.

When the BBC put their minds and efforts into something, unlike MOTD (Bring back Premiership on ITV), they can produce excellent programmes as we have seen over the last couple of weeks.

I remember him against either Grimsby or Forest. His gold chain broke during the game and he fumbled all over the ground picking up pieces while play went on around him. Funny stuff.

I'm sure this happened (long time ago now). Anyone else remember?

The programme didn't mention us though. Just said he'd played for QPR, Celtic, in China and that he was now in Norway.

It said he played for QPR and Celtic, no mention of Palace and didn't he also have a spell at Newcastle?

We had a Brazilian at around the same time whose contact lense fell out, and just stopped and looked for it.

Well, poor bloke was playing for free!

Yep, Fernando is a regular for Odd in the Norwegian premier. He has actually been quite good this season, and has scored a couple of top notch goals as well.

I thought he was quality. :)

Well, maybe not all that, but good during an awful time for the club.

Wasn't that run against Portsmouth c_e, where he set up one and scored one ??

No that was the Brazilian midfielder Jose Fumaca Antunes who followed Mick Wadsworth to Geordieland. He was shit!

...Atunes Fumaca was the bloke who's gold false tooth fell out as he was running along the pitch with the ball, he stopped, turned round, and started looking for it whilst play was carrying on :D

I can't blame him, he wasn't being paid to play, so the gold tooth was worth the hastle!

Yes, that must have been it.

Did we ever pay him back for playing for free, seeing as we are no longer in administration? Maybe that's why the programme never mentions his affiliation with Palace.

I rated him but not really Antunnes who did have a spell at N'castle. I remember BArnes took him to Celtic I think. Decent player

I thought the Brazilian was v. average.

Fernando was a bit of a hero at the time. A little bit like Svensson, before he right royally shat on us.
