Why do we still keep chanting all this anti-Yorkshire stuff? It's so dated and belongs in the 1970s.

Yorkshire folk are much friendlier and open than Grimsby people who are much more insular and narrow-minded. Yorkshire is a much more inclusive place than Grimsby, is it any wonder we get so few away fans when we make everyone so unwelcome?

Yorkshire is an excellent place - really don't understand the parochial vendetta so many supporters seem to have towards the area. The reason we have no away fans coming to Blundell Park however is because it's in a comparatively remote location, and many teams in this league have poor travelling support. In addition, the Conference usually end up scheduling fixtures that would usually lead to large away followings on stupid days - Luton at home last season on a Tuesday night for example.

Hasn't that statement just done a similar thing?  Not all Grimsby people are insular and narrow-minded, only takes a few gobby ones. That's like going to Elland Road and listening to their anti Man Utd songs and deciding all Yorkshire people are vile.
I agree it's dated though, prehistoric almost but then so are a lot of knuckle dragging fans that have been forever attracted to football games.

Because not all Grimsby fans are little weeds that wen't to University away somewhere then spend the rest of their time slagging their home Town off . Not all of us will spend our working career (when you finally do get a job) in some civil service office contentiously  screaming , racist, homophobic , or bigot at people that dont quite have you utopic outlook on life.
Most people that I grew up with can go to the pub and be totally abused about a number of things by their own best mates and laugh it off , in fact most give a little bit back.
I've never gone home and cried after anyone sung Fishy songs about us at a game and I'd be surprised if any of the Yorkies lost any sleep last night , but like a typical left leaner you've decided to be offended for them.

Oh dear are you upset at some of the banter that goes on at football matches, grow a pair for God's sake.

And as for Yorkshire folk, having lived in Yorkshire for the past 25 years I can confirm they are just as fooking miserable, insular and narrowminded as the rest of the country.

And as for the lack of away fans, that must have been the reason why Hayes & Yeading and the rest didn't bring a couple of thousand fans with them.

It's another reason Lincoln could use though?

Not quite the same as singing songs in praise of the Yorkshire Ripper. There's probably people in the crowd who would be horrified if they made out what we were singing.
