I was always partial to the March Wardens, rather than the Reiver families actually…

Sunderland FC

epturner Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 9:44 a.m. PST

Sunderland isn't a tribe, it's more of a mob.

But then again, I support Liverpool.

Not much different, I suppose.

You guys are ruining my poll with all your soccer references.

Garand17 Feb 2012 10:06 a.m. PST


OK, not necessarily a tribe, but they lived in Britain and beat up a lot of people!


Feet up now Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 10:11 a.m. PST

Liverpool Football Club aswell.
It's okay no soccer reference here, they use their FEET alas the name of the game.

Oops .time out methinks.

There was more than one?

On a more serious note, probably the Silures

Timbo W17 Feb 2012 12:14 p.m. PST

Silures seconded :-)

Now if anyone can explain why Yorkshiremen are really Parisians…

GarrisonMiniatures Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 12:20 p.m. PST

Why would we want to speak English?

epturner Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 12:23 p.m. PST

Because no one else knows what "claggy" means, not even the Jocks…


Oh Bugger Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 12:25 p.m. PST

Oh yes Brigantes but who could deny the, albeit later, Armstrongs. 3,000 lances.

claggy [ˈklęgɪ]
adj -gier, -giest
Chiefly dialect stickily clinging, as mud

Except it's no 'dialect'; it's Lallans.

Oh Bugger Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 1:35 p.m. PST

"Except it's no 'dialect'; it's Lallans."

Claggy like its mate 'Clarty' is Northumbrian as is a fair bit of Lallans.

Claggy of course has worse connotations….

Norman D Landings Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 2:32 p.m. PST

NAEBODY likes Mackems, coz th' honk like a cuddy's clems. Fact.

Since my mother's folks were Blackmores, I'll be riding with the Armstrongs.

GarrisonMiniatures Inactive Member17 Feb 2012 3:33 p.m. PST

Not just Northumbrian, folk on the Gateshead side of the Tyne use them as well.

The Iceni first, and Leeds second with a strong nod towards Essex.
