Sorry mate but I think you’ll find one Mr Glavin got there first, anybody else is just an imposter!
You reds. Obv. I have a soft spot for oxford as i was born there. All my family r liverpool fans bar me and mi dad so i cheer them on. My bro in law is a stags fan so i to watch mansfield maybe twice a season and cheer them on.
My uncle is a piggy. When i was young if i did owt wrong my dad used to make me go to swillsbrough
You only demonstrate why I dislike Manchester United fans. Arrogant ( always hate the simple United and challenge it) and ignorant (just throwing that one in gratuitously!)
I had a brief flirt with Newcastle when I was a young teenager. It was when they were half decent and used to play regularly in the champions league, I even bought a shirt!
I can honestly say though, apart from the odd non-league game and the odd England game, I have never gone to watch anyone other than Barnsley.
Used to love Bolton as a kid for no reason in particular, but it’s only tarn for me these days.
Used to go to St James park when I was a student at Newcastle and also The Abbey when I worked in Cambridge. The only other team I ever followed is Atletico Madrid.
Lived in Scotland for a few years and supported the Maryhill Magyars aka Partick Thistle.
A man of your impeccable standing should be aware of the pitfalls regarding supporting two teams.
You can't give either team the love and care that they need and eventually it all breaks down, they both leave you, you end up drinking turps round the back of William H Brown and eventually you look back 10 years later and wonder what might have been if you'd had devoted all your time and attention to one of them....
Lamb sounded nice though, hope you didn't spoil it with mint sauce.
Always been a red however i and a few mates supported Everton as spotty yoofs back in the mid to late 80's , went to watch 'em a few times against the fowls and forest, they always drew or lost in fact the only time I saw them win was at oakwell when I wanted them to lose, Scouse [email protected] , Graeme sharp was my favourite player, reight laiker, sithi.
I became a Barnsley supporter early on.
But when I went to the senior school there were a lot of Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United supporters.
I went to watch Wednesday 3 times - and just couldn’t get on with them and their supporters.
I went to watch Sheffield United - and I have relatives that watch them - and this was in the Currie era of the old 1st Division.
So I watched them for a while - it wasn’t the team itself that attracted me as a kid - it was that this was at the height of soccer hooliganism - of a group of us getting pissed and causing mayhem as a 14 year old to early 20s against all the top clubs in the country.
From those years of experience I learnt what the Sheffield clubs really think about Barnsley - the town and it’s football club.
Sheffield clubs only see each other as rivals.
No one else.
They don’t see Barnsley as a rival at all - people from Barnsley watch the Sheffield clubs.
No one from Sheffield watches Barnsley.
But interestingly they see us as sort of marauding vikings from the north - in that sense they fooooking hate us.
Both Sheffield clubs are really top clubs.
And their fans are up there with the best.
But but but - I hate them as much as I hate Leeds because they draw football supporters away from watching Barnsley.
This doesn’t just impact Barnsley Football Club - it ultimately impacts the whole prosperity of the town.
A man from Barnsley with children who watches Sheffield Wednesday is reducing the chances of employment for his children.
its hard to stress how different it was in the late sixties early seventies until the Alan Clarke effect kicked in. Yes kids supported BFC but it was common for them to have a favorite league 1 side ( Leeds, Man U , Liverpool etc) as they were seen as a world away from us. The stars who played for these teams were really the only ones you saw on TV or in the papers and street cred came into it. But certainly all the ones I knew finally settled into Oakwell regulars as they got older.
IDon't know of any sufc fans from anywhere in barnsley area, only swfc fans,and they seem to be inbreds from places like jump or høyland.. I think Lufc went out offashion in parts of barnsley after70s..
Most supported bfc when I were youngun early80s.. wi odd 3 or 4who were wannabee Liverpool or mufc fans...
When I first started going to the away matches when I was 16, I used to go with 2 lads from Sheffield who were Barnsley fans.
Can’t see that.
Unless of course they had family from Barnsley.
Which if people have family - say a dad or grandad from there then it’s understandable that they watch that team.
What’s NOT understandable is that they have no links whatsoever to that place and still watch them in preference to their own town club.
Like I used to do as a daft kid.
Real Salt Lake and Mansfield, kind of. But nothing compares to Barnsley. Also, slightly interested in Atlanta United.
Used to like watching Gretna go through the Scottish leagues, with Dr Deuchar smashing all the goals in. That ended poorly.
Always liked the name Aberdeen, so purely for that reason look at their scores.. Inverness Cale purely because of the Loch Ness Monster connection.. Both great reasons to have a liking for a footy team..
No other English club. If I had to pick a prem team it would be Spurs.
When playing football manager in my youth, it was always start with a non league side who were hopeless or York City.
THE BARNSLEY FC
