    Has anyone ever come out of Oakwell after a match and found NOTHING to whinge about?

    I don't know what's wrong with some people. Four home wins in fourteen months. What more do they want?

    By the time I've got out I'm more concerned about what curry I'm having for my tea. I tend to push the boat out and go for the dearer ones when we win or play well - so I've saved quite a bit this season.

    The standard of referee always gives the whingers plenty of ammunition , plus there are number of fans who get off on whinging , you only have to read this board to know that , hey ho it takes all sorts

    I didn't actually hear this, but I'm 95% sure that someone, somewhere must have said it. I can even have a good guess who.

    You know it's endemic when the online dictionary uses a footballing example to illustrate use of the word:

    WHINGE

    verb - complain persistently and in a peevish or irritating way.
    "stop whingeing and get on with it!"

    noun - an act of complaining persistently and peevishly.
    "I can't help having a whinge about the referee though"

    I actually managed to whinge on my way INTO Oakwell on Saturday when I bought a 50/50 half-time draw ticket and then looked at the number...

    131313

    Needless to say, my ticket was not the lucky one.

    It's not coming out of Oakwell, the bloke behind me in the upper east stand moans none stop from before kick off and is still moaning walking out at the end. He only comes to be disappointed and he's not disappointed.

    Terrible we drew the second half 1-1, missed a penalty and didn't reach double figures. School was fun the next day though with how few Huddersfield fans realised why I was offering them a free can of 7 Up :D
