First up against the wall come the revolution

People who take more than one slot with their car so that they can "protect" it with extra space on either side. Especially in car parks that are always busy with few or no slots. If your car is so precious to you, take a bus!

My complaint is the direct opposite, and will resonate with all van drivers. If you have a van, the doors are wide and so you need more space to open them than is offered by the average supermarket parking bay. Therefore, you park in an open area of the carpark. Then, you come back after shopping and see, amongst the acres of emptiness, that some ****head has parked right next to you! Happened to me again yesterday, at half past eight in Tesco's.

It even happens at Wickes, where everyone is likely to be picking up something large, heavy and unwieldy.

I do get some angry looks when I park my long wheelbase Sprinter across several parking bays but usually in an empty section further out from whatever shop or store , quite simply because if I park in a normal way I'm creating a dangerous blind spot for everybody else 

Personally just like disability and family spots they should have white Van only parking spots as well 😉

Nothing personal, I am sure!

Anyway, my list is:

- Boxing fans who concentrate on the heavyweights only
- Widnes fans who move away from Widnes and never return
- Catholics who do not practise, but still take advantage to get jobs in Catholic schools

😄

(only joking!)

No need to worry about the last lot against the wall as I’m sure catholic doctrine is that they’re going to hell anyway 😄

Have I got this correctly? You have a neighbour who can be blown over by a strong fart?

Depends on what I’ve been eating the day before...

Non league football purity bores who drone on about their superiority as they watch proper football rather than the cashed up mercenaries in the football league. Because, after all, following Southend United is the definition of glory hunting.

Oh god, so much this. I love non league football and can bore on and on and on about it. I even spent a chunk of yesterday looking at the new proposals for the geographic footprints of the leagues at North West Counties/Hellenic/Southern Combination level. But it's not more pure because it's a fiver to get in and you can have a pint in sight of the pitch. I mean, those are all good things and great fun but it's not that way because of some ideological purity, it's that way because Eastbourne Town (seriously, look up the Eastbourne ultras Pier Pressure) is the second biggest club in a medium sized town a long way from anywhere.

Yeah, but they'll never be Bradford Park Avenue (not that I've ever been)

the person who invented auto tuning so nearly every mainstream recording sounds as distorted and dull as the one before , probably the same person who thinks its hip to re do old songs but slow them all down to a funeral type durge .

I have been to Bradford Park Avenue following York City. It was the first away game of the season, warm and sunny, and they had a beer tent in our end. And we won 5-0. Not at all a bad day out.

Your brackets are in the wrong place.

It's Bradford (Park Avenue), not that I've ever been.

Think it was something bizarre like the Southern League or the old division 4 south? 
Tony Collins latest podcast is all about rugby/soccer split in Bradford, very good it is too.

You're absolutely spot on. It was the Southern League.

I think - and Tony Collins probably goes into detail about this - it was because the other professional leagues in the north and midlands (Football Alliance?) had all finally gone and so professional clubs didn't have that much choice. So they replaced Fulham in the Southern League for a couple of seasons.

I'm old school. Though, (sorry to disappoint Shads and Bob8  😉 ) not old school tie.
