Together with my wife, eldest son and his girlfriend I attended the Grimsby Town vs Huddersfield Town match last night (football) (for US readers - proper football).
A few reflections on the reserved and polite English;
A loud voice ranges out of the stand;
"Bloody 'ell. I hope you can shoot straighter than that lad.", much derisive laughter.
With ten minutes to go and the score at a surprising 4 -1 to Grimsby some Huddersfield Town fans started packing up their rather large flag;
"Are you going to give it a decent burial?"
As some Huddersfield fans start to leave before the final whistle, almost the whole crowd stands and waves enthusiastically;
"Thanks for coming!"
"Can we play you every week?"

Previously I have heard the following songs;
"We p*ss on your fish, we p*ss on your fish, etc etc.", Grimsby is a busy fishing port.
During last summers drought when many visiting teams had hosepipe bans in their areas;
"Where's your water gone, where's your water gone etc etc"
