Nobody. Always been more interested in how Town play than what anyone else does.

As a kid I remember a lot of guff in the GT when we were playing Scunthorpe but that was mainly because there was a proper Scunthorpe Telegraph then. It was Blundell versus Poacher. But all the other teams seemed so far away, we never saw any away fans at BP and our fans rarely went to away games unless we were on hols in the district.

To be honest, even though some people think the atmosphere is better with away fans, in those days the games with 100% Mariners support were a lot more exciting in the late 50s & early 60s because we filled all 4 sides of the ground. For a long time our gang went in the Osmond and only migrated to the Barrett when we were thrown out to make room for a tiny number of away fans.

I think its an age thing - for me it's Wendy, Sheff Utd & Barnsley but for the younger fans who it will be Scunts, Lincoln and the like as they haven't had the joy of watching us compete against the 'bigger' teams.


And gentlemen in England, now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day

Both Sheffield clubs and Barnsley for me. Hard call as I wanted to slot in Stoke and Rotherham.
I love winding my Scunt workmates up by insisting our hardcore Lincolnshire rivals are Boston.

Apparently we have played Lincoln more than any other team over the years, the second most often played opposition is Barnsley (must be something to do with Scunny only haveing a League team from the 50s)


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.
