    Ah ****, Southern by 2 miles


    This isn't even a Northern thing, more just a narrow corridor pretty much exactly aligned with the M62 and mainly consisting of smaller towns (only Leeds has a team of the big cities).
    Bradford and Hull? Sheffield and York have a team, they're just not very good.

    I'm from the south east and the general conception of northerners seems to be that they're quite rude and chavvy, (sorry just telling the truth), I always imagined it to be not a very rich area with small housing and people on how income but thats probably not true for all areas...

    you'd hate mine... my accent is awful
    You're from Cumbria, hmm... I don't think I've ever heard a Cumbrian accent. I've just been looking through google to find them now!

    If you'd PM me a voice clip, that would be wonderful! I guess my Surrey accent isn't very interesting in return.

    Also, a lot of southerners have a sort of 'grudge' because southern taxes are higher and often get distributed up north, which isn't really fair since there are more unemployed/on benefits in the north.

    My friend is Northern and I love how he shortens every word/sentence as much as possible and always rib him for it i.e in the bar becomes 'int bar'. Endearing really.

    Aye, still big cities though and technically Bradford is a bigger city than Manchester and Liverpool.

    But the government invest more into infrastructure 'down south', you only have to look at London to see that so there are two sides to every coin.

    True, and Bradford have cleverly expanded by turning the traditional town centre into parkland these days. Fear it will always be Leeds' poor relation though (and I'm going to work there!).

    Bradford has so much potential it's just a shame the people who run the city are cretins.

    Where the word "the" gets left behind - M1 Junction 25. According to McIntyre.

    "Go to the pub, drink 10 pints get completely plastered, go back home and beat the wife, dirty northern b******s". This football song from my area (Devon) pretty much sums up the attitude of most southerners towards northerners (not my personal opinion). However being sung by fans from Devon (e.g. Plymouth Argyle and Torquay united fans), this song is aimed at pretty much every other team in the country, not just those from the north, as most places are north of here.
