The term "Pigs" goes way back to the late 19th century. It's historic, steeped in Sheffield culture and tradition, and far from childish.

 

I'm actually surprised you don't know it's heritage, but then maybe there are many who don't. That's not a dig btw.

 

The one thing I won't sing is "die die piggy", especially to Sharp. Personal choice due to personal circumstances, but I find that tasteless.

 

Sorry, don't really see how the heritage and 'historic Sheffield culture ' are at all relevent. 

 

Like I said, having grown men and women from two sides of a big city calling each other 'pigs' just seems a bit childish for me.

Do you know why we call them Pigs? If you do you should realise what it all means although how you feel about it is of course a personal choice.

It goes way beyond that, calling First fans scabs and Derby fans sheepshaggers. 
It’s not very clever is it.

Has someone got a copy of the 1967 derby programme notes at the Lane...their own writer said that we refuse to eat bacon and the blades go home after a loss and beat their women up...no change there then for the cowards

I really don't care why to be honest. It's childish all the same. 

 

Calling Neil Warnock 'Colin' however is not childish. That's just genius.

So you don't care about the history of your own club? Okay, never mind. I'll leave it at that.

Yeah, not caring about why we refer to Sheffield United as 'pigs' is me not caring about the history of our club. 

 

I think you'd be right to leave it at that to be honest.

Wjem it comes to catchphrases I’m your man.

Haha swiss toni was the best! Place i used to work at had a fire officer who looked just like him. I was in the mandatory fire safety lecture and all i could think of was:

 

"putting out a fire is much like making love to a beautiful woman. You have to whip out your hose, firmly position your helmet, and spray your foam all over the hot stuff!"

First and foremost you have to treat the   fire with the respect she deserves . Caress her, get to know her and find out what makes her so damn hot. Then and only then can she be extinguished but only by using the finest champagne.
