    Rotherham are Millers. Tykes are Barnsley.
    Tykes generic for Yorkshire I thought? Barnsley is a sh*thole as well.

      I thought that this thread was going to be about three of the most sh*thouse places in England?

      Oh, and the Tykes edge it, just.
      Same here. I was just about to post “they’re all shit holes, what do I win?”

      You are correct of course. Consequently I've always thought Barnsley had one of the crappiest nicknames in football, a bit like referring to the Albion as "the southerners".

      In fairness, at least Barnsley are Tykes. I'm not quite sure how Palace justify their nickname. What has an Eagle got in common with that crap outfit? Does an eagle's nest empty when the going gets tough?

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      It goes back to the Great Exhibition in 1851 ( at Crystal Palace ) when a pair of Golden Eagles where on display. Legend has it that the eagles escaped and lived wild in the locality for a period of time ( more rural then ). Hence the nickname developed from there.

      It took one heck of a long time for them to adopt that nickname then, they were known as the Glaziers until comparitively recently.

      It was 1973 when Malcolm Allison was manager. It was his idea.

      Isn’t it now time that they were known as The Pyromaniacs?

      Not too soon is it?

      Were Rotherham in the Championship last season? God I'm getting old and forgetful.

      Relegated from the Championship last season....all promoted back up at the first attempt. Doesn't happen that often ( does it? ) Blackburn were clearly a bit unlucky to go down with 51 pts and Mowbray was already starting to turn them round. Wigan also looked far too good for Div 1.
      Is the gap widening between the Championship and lower leagues.?
      The difference in TV money is £6.5 million average in the Championship (for non parachute payment teams, parachute recipients on between £15-41 million) compared to £630,000 in League One.

      Average weekly wage in Championship £14,339 compared to £2,714 in League One
