Last night was single malt whisky, in the late 80s early 90s would have been something different. Loved going to a club in Leeds called the orbit, that was a class night, in Morley .

Just decided on my next away game, will not be Leeds as I am out that day/night so it will be Barnsley away on the 2nd of October 2 days booked off, 4 of us going to Sheffield from 1pm, then train to Barnsley, always enjoy South Yorkshire away days, good pubs with some good ales, also find Barnsley to be a good old fashion ground with a good atmosphere, should be quite a good following, but with our lot you never know.

Hope so , not been to Charlton for a few seasons, another good away day, always enjoy the London games, only takes about 1 45 mins to get into London from Derby now and apart from Millwall we take good numbers to London games, deffo going to Fulham in November another night game, already booked off , probably stay over in a premier inn, you have had a great start to the season, think Bowyer is doing a great job for you.

Expecting a decent crowd for that, suspect it’ll be our charity day aswell led by Lyle Taylor who goes ‘Pink for October’ for Cancer Research.

Yeah, enjoying it while it lasts. Good opportunity to get some more points on the board this month before a brutal October. Bowyer has been class, I’ll go as far as to say he’s in the top 3 managers in the league.

I grew up 5 miles from the West Yorkshire border (not sure what the relevance is) and there were plenty of Leeds and Wednesday at my school. No Blunts tho.
The relevance is quite obvious. If you're from Ryhill you're more likely to look towards Leeds, if you're from Birdwell you're more likely to look towards Sheffield Wednesday.

We had odd glory bin dipper when I grew up but was mainly a split between the two Sheffield clubs. Find it a tad disheartening seeing kids now wander about in "Top Four" shirts or Real/Barca knowing their footballing education comes from their front room rather than a stadium

We've all seen on Social Media them vids by parents taking their kids to their first match and the awe the young uns show, most of us were like that without the camera and the feelings we still get if we score, win, or lose are far more intense and real than Jack aged 15 from Truro who's closest trip to Old Trafford is the canvas on his wall or Football Manager.
All the people I know from Donny are from Conisbrough and they are all Barnsley fans. I'm sure that's not typical of the borough on the whole though.

Sold over 1,500 for Stoke Saturday. We didn’t have POTD last year, if we do this year I’d think we’ll push 2k.
Good numbers that, for the distance you are travelling, are you going pal, can be a good hot atmosphere at Stoke, if you beat them and I think you will, could be the end of there manager, the stokies are not happy at the moment.

Poor atmos at Stoke generally. Overplayed in my opinion. Didn't get behind their team this year against us when they needed to. Shit songs too.

Burton has mostly Derby fans, a few Villa and a few Birmingham, Derby has always had a lot of support from Burton, Uttoxeter has Stoke and Derby. And yes one thing I love about Sheffield, is most people over the age of 18 support Wednesday or Sheff United, unlike Leeds who have a massive Manu following living there, why, I will never understand a Yorkshireman supporting Manu.
Derby seem to have quite a few in Alfreton as well going off when i’ve been there, and bizarrely they always seem to want to fight us despite there being no beef whatsoever whenever we’ve played Derby in the past.

That's Alfreton for you mate, proper local place, always want to fight anyone who is not from there including lads from Derby as well. But yes we do have a lot of Derby fans there.
