Couldn't give a monkeys about Scumton getting back in the football league,hope they get relegated back to the conference as soon as possible.
Don't miss the local derbies at all, prefer playing our nearest rival,QPR.
Don't want anything to do with Scumton or their supporters!!! They hate us more than we hate them
