Southampton vs Portsmouth wasn't my point it was yours. I was using your point to help you understand the difference between local rivalry/hate (which is wrong but not what were discussing) and prejudice against a city of people from the rest of it's own country.Taking your point re Portsmouth versus Southampton, that’s not just rivalry it’s almost war at times. I remember In the summer nights gangs of lads drive to each other cities and roam the streets looking for lads on their own to kick the shit out of. It’s not reported much in the mainstream press but my point is lots of cities all over the world hate each other it’s just we are more acutely aware of what people think about Liverpool. It doesn’t make it right though but have a look at what people on here say about manc fans before you ascend to the moral high ground.
Moral high ground? My days that's pot/kettle black. "I've followed LFC for 40 years blah blah I know more than you."
Let's see some stereotypes:
Jocks - tight
Yorkshire - forthright, tight
Welsh - do naughty things to sheep (who really believes this?)
Cockneys - Cheeky chappies who eat jellied eels
Geordies - Fatty's who go topless at football matches
Irish - lack intelligence/stupid
Scousers - thieving murdering bin dippers on the dole.
So Bread influenced people? Could it have influenced people who became referees, officials, part of the EFL, FA etc?
