Firstly, before I start writing this blog, I would like to point out a few things… So, if you’re from Barnsley and about to send me some abuse regarding the title of today’s blog, please hold fire. I have nothing against people from the north of England. I support Leeds United, I have family in the north and before moving south, I was born in York. However, yesterday I saw what can accurately be described as Dirty Northern Bastards. They were unclean, of northern origin and were probably born to unmarried parents. I hope this clears things up.

Right, now for the blog which could actually turn out to be shorter that the disclaimer which it preceded.

Yesterday, I went oop t’north to Darlington for the second time this season to watch Bath City. The first trip saw City lose 4-1. This weekend’s score line wasn’t much better, with the home side inflicting a 3-1 defeat. ‘The Quakers’ had clearly had their Ready Brek.

The encounter with the ‘DNB’ was not at The Darlington Arena, instead at Wetherby Services, on the A1, somewhere very far north. The place was full of football supporters of many different clubs. All of whom were behaving themselves, apart from the Middlesbrough fans. It may have only been 11am, but a group for Boro supporters were so inebriated, it looked like they had been drinking Carling since Wednesday. One staggered into the toilets, opening a cubicle marked “Out of Order”, before falling over and declaring to everyone using the facilities “I’ve pissed myself”.

Having not met any Middlesbrough fans until yesterday, I cannot say if those I encountered were typical supporters of the club. But as I am yet to ever meet one who isn’t drunk on cheap lager, I see nothing to prove that they are not all like that.

    A bit harsh on the not only the fans of Leeds and Barnsley, but also: Blackpool, Newcastle, Sunderland, Manchester City, Bolton, Blackburn, Wigan, Liverpool and Everton. Have I missed any Northern Premiership fans? No that’s all of them..

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
