"The Old Farm"

Recommended Posts

Just a thought to deflect our anger.

Don''t you just hate the Norwich Ipswich game being called ''the Old Farm''? I''ve read it four times on the BBC sport site alone! I hate it!

I blame Wikipedia. I''d never heard of the phrase before reading it on there a few years ago.

Yes, I hate the phrase too. It certainly isn''t a term applied by Norwich fans, just the brainchild of some half-arsed hack.

Someone came up with "The Old Farm" four or five years ago but the Beeb have only just caught on bless ''em.

I prefer "The Battle of Portaloo"

The capitulation of portaloo would be more apt after today.

Do you think the ''half-arsed'' hack supports 2 Teams ''passionately''?

He probably enjoys all the attention you give him.

The old farm is an expression entered in the common language.

It''s also the title of a nice book by Rob Hadgraft: http://www.footballderbies.com/reviews/review.php?rid=23
