Middlesbrough is in Yorkshire, as is Sedburgh. Games against Middlesbrough are Yorkshire derbies. Take 1974 as gospel though and Hull is in Humberside not Yorkshire so it swings all ways.

And Liverpool is in Lancashire, not that 90% of Scousers would even know that.

Excellent. We have a world cup featuring 20 odd countries, including Spain, Norway, Brazil, Greece, Canada, Lebanon etc. and the Yorkies are filling up the thread with moans about changes to local gov

Seems reasonable for a World Cup final

At a time when it is pretty easy to feel glum about the state of the game, this schedule hitting my calendar has provided a real fillip. Already trying to plot how I can best do a few games in on

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_East_England

North East England is one of nine official regions of England at the first level of NUTS for statistical purposes. It covers Northumberland, County Durham, Tyne and Wear, and the area of the former county of Cleveland in North Yorkshire. The region is home to three large conurbations: Teesside, Wearside, and Tyneside, the last of which is the largest of the three and the eighth most populous conurbation in the United Kingdom.[2] There are three cities in the region: Newcastle upon Tyne, the largest, with a population of just under 280,000 but a metro area population of 809,000 Sunderland, also in the metropolitan county of Tyne and Wear; and Durham. Other significant towns include Barnard Castle, Berwick Upon Tweed, Darlington, Gateshead, Hartlepool, Hexham, Middlesbrough, South Shields, Stockton-on-Tees, Washington and Yarm.

 

Just saying. 👍

Anywhere south of the Tees is in Yorkshire.

Certain areas of the county are under the jackboot of occupation by other authorities, created by Government fantasy.

Disappointing to see the Greek team based in South Yorkshire at the Keepmoat and Bramhall Lane. I'd have gone for the Totally Wicked Stadium. 

St Hellenics? 

Please. Bramall.

Bramhall is down south in Cheshire.

Quite right, Tommy.  

It always amuses me that there are gallant folk in places like Middlesbrough and Hull fighting for their right to be in Yorkshire, whilst folk in Lancashire are all too keen to tell you they're in Cheshire or Cumbria.

A legendary English lecturer (in my eyes) at my uni called Yorkshire an "Island", separated by the Humber, Tees, Peak district and Pennines from the rest of the UK. 

And as an extension to the Lancs. point, Merseyside!

The office of national statistics breaks England up into 9 official regions and the teesside, ie the Tees Valley and a small portion of North Yorkshire is in the region of the North East. What of that don't you understand? Are you a thick man? Is that what this is or are you just an ignorant #####?

Appropriate that a Halluncinating Goose relies on Wikipedia to tell us where Yorkshire is.😂

You do realise that almost everything on Wikipedia is referenced from countless primary sources don't you? 99.9% of stuff on Wikipedia is only allowed to be on there because it is found in other articles and documents. Now stop being so ignorant. ######.

Not really interested in what some johnny-come-lately Government thinks about it.

Yorkshire's been here for over a thousand years.

But thanks for your thoughts.

1974 ?  They change the boundaries every ten minutes.

That's part of the problem.  No consistency.

Did we not finish 12th in the medal table in the 2012 Olympics ?🥇

Definitely going for the half term market

Smart move to do that, and the afternoon kickoff for France v Greece. Little things like that give me great hope that this will be the best World Cup by a distance.

Not sure how much it was for the last one at Old Trafford but I was fortunate to be a guest there and it was a great experience. Hospitality at Old Trafford is very good there are usually a lot of differing options and scales of price to be fair

You are from Liverpool aren’t you Eddie?

There’s a stained glass window in Paddy’s wigwam with Lancashire on it. Remember when I saw it being slightly surprised as I hadn’t realised the historic connection.
