Re: Let hostilities resume. Man Utd v Leeds Utd. 3rd round FA Cup, Sunday 3rd January

Did you even read the thread title?

My impression from looking at it was that it was a thread for banter.

"Let hostilities resume" is really not an insinuation that the thread is going to be full of cuddles and kittens.

The point is, should people be able to throw the word scum around simply because it's acceptable in a pub, and because the moderators don't like Man United? A lot of words are normal in British pubs which would be immediately deleted here.

What, on English Forum? Seriously, anyone calls me scum in the pub, I get up and walk away. I'm disappointed that it is considered acceptable here, and that two moderators feel they have to chip in.

Beardsy lighten up. I thought you would clearly see the banter and rivalry speak.

Instead you are spitting your dummy out

Re: Let hostilities resume. Man Utd v Leeds Utd. 3rd round FA Cup, Sunday 3rd January

Hi Beardsy

The reason I started a thread about this particular tie, rather than the whole 3rd round or even the whole FA Cup, is because games between "Manure" & "Dirty Leeds" are so important and eagerly awaited amongst both our fans and fans of many other clubs and with United playing in the third tier and being drawn in the 3rd round (the giant killers round) at OT it had an extra element. I gave it a lighthearted title as there is always plenty of banter, friendly and sometimes a little unfriendly between us. But us northerners can take it as easy as we give it.

I have read many reports in the serious press about the game such as in the Times, Telegraph, Independent and Gurniad and they all highlight this rivalry and "hatred" we have for each other. (Most of these articles BTW note that all the United players understood this importance but the Man U players - with the exception of Rooney who played with some spirit, and Neville who gave some great verbal abuse to Grayson - didn't. Which is one of the reasons why United came away with victory.)

If you felt this banter was below you then rise above it and post a serious comment, I'm sure you would have been thanked for it.

I came here to post something similar. Instead I get 'manc scum' etc etc.
Nowhere did Jemma say "manc scum". I thought all of our respective fans knew that scum is the nickname given to Manchester United Football Club. It is not directed at the city (Man U don't even play there!) or to the people of Manchester (most Mancunians support City anyway).

So come on, the game is over and us Lankies and Yorkies can all be friends again.

Hang on a mo though.... where's that cricket fixture list got to?

Nicky, I think 'scum' goes beyond the line of the 'banter' I would expect to be allowed on here. If you would write it here, I assume you'd say it to my face, too.
Just to clarify my above post. The word "scum" is not directed at any person but is the nickname given to Manchester United Football Club.

No, you're ok. Rogered is Mancunian slang for enjoying a nice cup of tea with your neighbours.

22 yards, your comment cannot be taken seriously, since it's in the middle of two comments which show that you actually approve of what was said.
I couldn't care less either way about Man U or Leeds. I support an even more widely loathed club (but at least they won 5-0).

It's sad that the thread is now 'is beardsy being a little princess?' instead of talking about what was a pretty epic game of football.
You are right.

We should change the title of the thread.

Re: Let hostilities resume. Man Utd v Leeds Utd. 3rd round FA Cup, Sunday 3rd January

OK here goes....

I was completely unaware that my comment caused so much offence until a fellow Leeds fan emailed me to highlight the apparent problem that I have caused!!!

Football banter is exactly that, it is just banter! I was born in Leeds and have lived in both cities and the comment was not in anyway directed at the wonderful people who live in Manchester many of whom I consider friends (note that most "s**m" fans live outside of Manc land!) I have been to both football grounds and I was indeed at the last game between the two teams in 2004 (where we lost ).

I can't believe that someone has felt the need to report my post to a mod that is just childish beyond belief And that this thread was derailed from what was a great victory for a great team into a spat over a silly word. To Beardsy, if you are that thin skinned then I would suggest you stay well away from any football ground or if you do go then cover your ears as i can say for certain you WILL hear something you don't like..... The chants use far worse language than the little word I used!

Also if you read the link GG posted at the top of this thread, this is not just about football, it's a historic now friendly rivalry between two counties going back in history to at least the 15th century where a very important battle was fought for the crown. Us Yorkies lost the battle and the crown of England and the Lancs have never let us forget it! So yes I will be smug and gloat a little over our victory. The teasing between the counties stretches far further than football and into everyday life - that is just the way it is and the way I and all the rest of my fellow northern folk were brought up.... none of it is meant offensively.

If I have offended anyone for my language then sorry however it doesn't detract from the fact we beat the "s**m" on their home turf and we are 2 leagues below them. I'm still floating on air and just as happy as we made it through to R4!

As Natasha would say HTFU

And yes it was me on NYE

Just one small note 'again' who called 'you' scum? were they not referring to ManU as 'the scum' or were they saying 'Beardsy, he's scum, he is'

Manure are know as scum to all teams. Liverpool are called Redshites by Evertonians and far worst things such as murderers by Sc*m supporters, so why are you taking offence?
It's football!!

Re: Let hostilities resume. Man Utd v Leeds Utd. 3rd round FA Cup, Sunday 3rd January

Beardsy, we are talking about football, right?

As a lifelong Liverpool supporter, I think ManUtd, most of their whiny players, their arrogant manager, and all their w*nk*r supporters are scum of the earth.

But I would never attribute this label to an individual ManU supporter withouth getting to know them.

I despise ManU, it's fairly simple. It's football, it's sport, it's common. I know many Everton and ManU supporters feel the same about us.

But we still get along at the pub, on this forum, on the pitch. The original statement of scum was simply football rivalry that can have strong roots and feelings, but we're all mature enought to leave it at that.
