    Did you know # 25...

    ..that according to the Gleadless Pillock that the Pigs Kop was on a par with Newcastle, Man U and Liverpool for noise and that according to another they had 30000+ crowds at reserve games. On Piggy Heaven so it must be true.

    Amazing that they had 30,000+ for reserve games but the first team hasn't had a 30,000 average for over 50 years

    1) You have to be sick in the head to brainwash your children

    2) You have to be a feckin idiot to be brainwashed to that degree

    Did you know that every game Waddle played at the Rustbucket, it was a sell out.

    Did you know that their pitch is not a real Desso,unlike ours which is the real McCoy.

    Probably like many Blades through the years I was brainwashed into thinking the Pigs average support was thousands in front of ours. I was told all about every attendance in the 40's and 50's being 50000+. As they had the best trophy record and a magnificent ground I took this for granted. Then came the WWW. You can check attendances from the 1890's to yesterday. It appears that their average is a little under 2000 more than ours. If you take out their halcyon years in the late 40's/early 50's and ( ours too at the same time ) it comes down to just over 1600. An aged Blade always told me if we'd had had half what the Pigs had our attendances would be well clear of theirs.

    Half of what Mahatma? Delusion to the ability to tell Porkies?

    Well, their 24,000 in mid week, with, I imagine, a healthy support from Derby meant that they fell a little bit further behind us.
    And looking at the highlights on TV it looked like there was about 15,000 there

    No I meant a world class ground, forward thinking boards and ability to spend. This was mainly in the fifties and sixties. At least they got what they paid for, Tommy Craig record buy for a teenager was always someone I think should have done better. Now they pay 10.4 million for a goalscorer who can't score, and 6 million on an average midfield player.

    Mate of mines cousin who works in their offices said if the average was based on footfall it would be about 22/23000.

    I think we were always led to believe that support was pretty even in the city, but that the oinkers had a wider appeal outside the city than we did, possibly due to their unusual name* and ground being used for FA Cup semi finals.

    *I don't think it ever really meant much in terms of feet on the terracing, but people do latch onto teams with memorable names (being named after a day of the week...) like they did when 'Young Boys of Bern' came to prominence from the Swiss League, as an example.

    Tell me what I've said that is mythical. Coming from a master liar that's a bit rich.

    They didn’t have a world class roof on their Kop though.
