Weird Rivalries 10:21 - May 11 with 1634 viewswkj

I got to thinking how funny it has been that we've had a few non-derby rivalries over the last few seasons, some of these were rivalries that were not really of our own creation

Brentford - Stickers? Or am I making this up

Colchester United - Love treating us like a derby

Cambridge United - Celebrated against us like a cup final

Portsmouth - Not happy with our financial freedom

Bristol City - They don't like Ashton very much, most have come around to the fact it might not have been his fault, except that Fez fella who still talks about him with venom.

Leeds - Promotion Rivalry (the most understandable one)

Don Goodman - Class A weirdo

Leyton Orient- Much older supporters of the club view us as their main rivals which shocked away supporters who turned up to a "friendly" in 2014. Younger supporters seem fine with us- especially since some of our ex-players/loan players joined their club.

Sheffield United. Going back to the 90s there was always an edge to those games…sending offs, Warnock, play offs…

Sheffield Utd, after being 2 0 down, Pablo sent off before half time, end up winning 3 2, second half Town went 3 3 3 formation and just attacked them. Shefki and Benty were superb.

Treacle delivering a punch at Bramall Lane that everybody in the ground apart from the officials saw.

It's 106 miles to Portman Road, we've got a full tank of gas, half a round of Port Salut, it's dark... and we're wearing blue tinted sunglasses.

They saw, but they hated the Blunts as much as us.

Chris Morgan the worst example of a human being this side of Michael Barrymore.

That's not a weird rivalry instigated by them, though. That was an understandable two way one.

Bolton - Barry Knight. No more needs to be said.

Sorry but please explain this.

Why on earth would Leyton Orient ever consider Ipswich as rivals?

Bit of an edge with Wolves fans back in the late 70's when the North Stand was a thing.

This will sound very weird to younger people, but Manchester City.

There was a time when they missed out and failed got relegated a lot almost as much, if not more, than us. In the 70s they were often better than United, but way behind Liverpool and usually behind us.

It really started though with the FA Cup SF, which we should have won. Then in all the way up to Burley’s time we competed with them for promotion and of course saw them relegated in 2001.

Then they hit the Arab jackpot and that was that.

My dislike for man city is very close to my dislike of Norwich, and this started before they hit the lottery win. Maine Road night games led the coach down some dodge avenues and some really iffy looking folks used to give it large to the coach. Not to mention the Nicky Weaver vs Richard Wright rivalry.

I have to say, their jackpot win has probably kept my distain going, but I would rather anyone but them succeed in the cup and league, barring Norwich.

Watford - We travelled there in large numbers towards the end of a couple of seasons as it was the last big London away game. They didn't understand why we kept turning up in larger than anticipated numbers, so made up a non-existent rivalry

Lived in Manchester 96-2000.

Developed a dislike of Citeh fans as they somehow thought getting 33,000 in 3rd tier qualified them for Champions league.
They hated Southampton who regularly finished top 6 despite The Dell being limited to sub-20,000.

Plus saw numerous cowardly attacks on away fans by their fans.
