Good article.

But...

Surely it should be the nominative form, "Does tha want a brew?" ?

Discuss.

Whatever the grammatical answer, Bob Lord would have been right regardless. :)

the present groundsman should also be sacked

....the stadium photo in the article shows a curved touchline alongside the Bob Lord stand! :)

I bet Roy never mowed the pitch after a match as at Wolves, Bob Lord would switch the floodlights off to save electricity!

Even "Dusti Wannabru"; this is not a possible signing but a Valley call.

I have never known grammar related to 'lancashire slang'. We made sentences shorter ,and easier. I would have said ''does ta want a brew?''or ''does'ti want a brew .....ah'll mek thi won?''.....‘What the ‘eck am a dowin here?’ (‘What the ‘eck am I doing here?’) ??

"Tha" is never a polite form of address in the best circles...there's often a hint of aggression in it. OK for a certain type of Yorkshireman to use in situations of mild conflict. Boycott, Gough and the fat bloke in Kes for instance......eg...""Tha's bloody late !!""

Best dealt with by the response.... "" don't thee tha me lad, thee tha them as tha's thee.""

Blimey, we even have differences in lancashere too. I always felt our slang was easy,comfy and shorter? For example the 'th' sound is an effort! The tongue is almost touching the teeth as your breath passes through it. Try saying ''th ,th, th''. ten times ....your tired after that!!! Where as ''ta ta ta'', or ''ti ti ti'', is effortless.
''We'ers ti bin? We'ers ti goowin? ... (Weers tha bin or weers tha goowin? Sounds swedish to me!!) :-)

"" don't thee tha me lad, thee tha them as tha's thee."" If you ask me I think german is easier to learn than this!!

Look what you started there Davet?! Article was on a distinguished Clarets groundsman I think not tea drinking habits of the northern species although Bob Lord's brew sounded pretty fearsome.

Roy Oldfield is a lovely man and a good friend of mine . We used to go for a couple of pints on a Friday night sometimes with Ray Pointer when he was a coach and staying over at his mother in law's on Parkinson St ; happy days .

Loved the new windows comment... Should we stay or go?

"They fitted them a month ago and still haven’t sent the bill. What do I do?"

Legend :D :D :D

Spades, have I taught you nowt over the years?

When we are promoted in April Accy Clarets are planning a mass tour to Norwich next season for the away game and your house is the stop off point. There will only be 200 off us.

I will supply the jam cake (or similar) to accompany them.

Is that ok?

Dave - make sure your fridge is full of Boddies!

TY
