I only ask because last night I sat next to a bloke at Lincoln who lived in Helmsley, he told me he travels to most games, suppose every game for him would be an away game? But he had no ties or links to Nottingham, I just could not understand why he was their, I did not want him their, when we sing "Nottingham is full of fun" I mean every inch of the town I live & breath, not just my football club, not sure this bloke had ever seen the Market Square, let my mate RedDog sit next to the imposter for the second half.

I know what you mean RR. Why's he not support Lincoln City, or Grimsby ? Anyway, don't knock it, as at least he's supporting us with his cash. Years ago, there was a couple from Ambleside in the Lake District, who followed Forest home and away. Amazing.

I would have thought some team in North Yorkshire, Leeds or York would have been nearer?

That German "Ebby" was there, but I'm told he now lives in Hucknall, so I'll let him off. 

Come the revolution NG postcode or your out?

As an aside.. my wife and her long gone Mum used to work on match days for Littlewood's Catering in Liverpool, who did the pies and cuppas at both Liverpool and Everton.  They told me even 40 years ago that people came from all over the UK and beyond, to support those teams.  I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing if it's real support.  It's a lot better than the sort who 'attach' themselves to the top teams of the day and claim to have been fans all their lives..

Nonna, I speak English all the time, and many a time the word I want will not enter my mouth!  LOL.

I never realised football support was so parochial. Why does it matter whether they are local or not? There are many who have never been to the UK who claim to be Man U, Arsenal. Liverpool etc. supporters. What a sad state of affairs when you won't sit next to someone just 'cos he aint frum rahnd ere'.

True Brew, my husband asked me to send for a supporters shirt from an English football team because one of the assistants in a wholesalers is a supporter . I was surprised that an Italian would have heard of a small team.

Kath it happens to me often but fortunately I can pop in with a few Italian words. It must seem funny to anyone listening.

Thanks for wishing me a nice day Ben, same to you for the coming day. 

Pub Quiz tonight, there was a phase, since the advent of the smart phone that people got 'caught short' . too regularly..:blink:

 

Now everybody plays fair  and the prize to the winner is a tenth of what it was previously!slywink.

Wednesday used to be quiz night at the Wheelhouse. A wanna be rocker/ heavy metal fan always turned up with a carrier bag of reference books - I don't think he ever won.
