    Moncur couldn't settle up North....

    Have we signed a shandy drinker, or will scenic Swanland convert him?

    I can see how that can be an issue for some people, but he's had the experience with Barnsley, he's 4 or 5 years older now and he knows Terry so fingers crossed.

    Plus we’re a friendlier bunch. We won’t force him into wearing a flat cap, walking a whippet or pigeon racing.

    Joseph Bramah patented the flushing toilet.

    The first reference to Barnsley occurs in 1086 in the Domesday Book, in which it is called Berneslai and has a population of around 200. The origin of the name Barnsley is subject to debate, but Barnsley Council claims that its origins lie in the Saxon word "Berne", for barn or storehouse, and "Lay", for field.

    Arthur Scargill was from Barnsley.

    The first bottle bank for glass recycling collection in the United Kingdom was opened in Barnsley.

    Ken Loach's 1969 film Kes was set and filmed in several villages in Barnsley.

    Charlie Williams footballer turned comedian was nearly from Barnsley, Royston to be exact.

    He played for Doncaster Rovers and only ever scored 1 goal which oddly enough was against Barnsley

    In true Hull independent style Hull built its own railway to the West Yorkshire coalfields to rival the NER, the Hull & Barnsley Railway, with its own dock, Alexandra Dock.

    Barsley decent enough.

    Was his house prone to subsidence or summat?

    As is often the case, things are not always what they seem in football. Perhaps the truth is somewhat different.

    Remember when Stuart Pearson got sent off for calling the ref an 'onion' at Hullsboro in 73?

    I think he was sent off for the adjective he put directly before onion.
