    although they like to hate the Blunts, so dunno if its "real rivalry"

    we hate Leeds when we happen to be in their division, not so much Huddersfield.

    i personally hate Donny because of how cocky they've got.. "Big Club" apparently, been int conference most of their existence like

    Wednesday and Leeds, in my opinion. Don't mind Utd that much, they're not as arrogant, unless you've seen "Blade" posting on here, but he's just a bit special.

    Depends which side of Barnsley you live. For me it's Sheff Wed closely followed by Sheff Utd. For North Barnsley it's Leeds. When we were in the lower divisions it was Donny Rovers and further back Rotherham & Bradford City. With Man U, Man City, Leeds, Sheff Wed, Sheff Utd, Doncaster, Rotherham, Huddersfield, Bardford, Burnley and maybe even Blackburn& Wigan all less than 40 miles away there's no wonder we only average about 11,000 at Oakwell

    Definitely Wednesday

    They are nearest, being to the North (our side) of Sheffield - there's only about 12 or 13 miles between Oakwell and the pigsty.</p>

    Our catchment areas overlap in the villages to the south of Barnsley/north of Sheffield.</p>

    Bumhole Lane is on the opposite side of Sheffield and the Blunts tend to draw their fanbase from south Sheffield/North Derbyshire.</p>

    As for Leeds - well, we ALL hate Leeds scum!</p>

    Basically yes, you've got it in one

    They seem to think they are a big club, should be in Europe etc

    blue and white stripey piggies

    l**ds next I suppose are probably my most disliked though I'm not fond of the red and white stripey piggies either though all those teams have usually been above us.

    Some cant stick doncaster nor Hudds but to me they are of little consequence.

    We are less than an hours drive from almost every yorkshire, lancashire and north midlands clubs

    Not truly rivals but the self style Manure of Yorkshire - Pikey Rovers

    Not really rivals as BFC mostly been in second tier and they've been in lower leagues or outta the league completely. But the 'big club' with the 'ground that rivals Old Trafford' became our bogey team a couple of years ago and their fans were vile

    We are nobodies!

    None of the other teams in Yorkshire would list us as their number 1 rival. The biggest 'mutual' rivalry I have seen was when we played Grimsby in the old Division 1. One of the cod heads ran on the pitch, picked up the corner flag and chucked it into the Barnsley crowd. Not sure what got him so angry.
