Always used my own name for Discos till the local idiot at the end of the night after his three shandies insisted on saying who do you think you are DJ Funky so called myself that just to wind him up Result.

Used to work for a bus company called Yorkshire Rider and owned a franchise in Hebden Bridge for Rohan outdoor wear. Yes Tolkien did have some characters on horseback but I don’t remember him at Skircoat Road bus depot.

Just my nickname from school. All thae other Holroyds in my family ended up with Holly, which I didn't like, and a mate called me Hoddie and it just stuck. My 50 year old cousin still gets called Holly, and one guy in particular used to call my dad Holly right up to his last days, and it just never sounds right to me.

Is this some bizarre TNV euphemisms?

I'm a fan of the God that is David Icke. His theories absolutely crack me up.

Few forum members are known by me  or to me and living a double life it will remain that way! My name comes from an anagram of my real name and it just stuck, admittedly few call me Mr Weknuts most call me Vinny! ( Chadders calls me other names but loves me really!)

Mine is a cunning disguise to stop you know who working out who I am.

If I used my real name, John, he would remember me so I have to use awaydays.

Is that a promise to me or a threat to ShayTrev? Mrs Weknuts will be there but sadly I won't !

I'd say more people know me as Flea and call me that than they know me by my actual name. 

Its a nickname I've had from being a kid, after my sister started calling it me.

Always assumed you were a more than capable bass player!

Haha, Ironically, bar Californication (Which is a superb track tbf) I'm not a huge fan. Too poppy for my liking.

I just love spending Christmas in France and the M19 is my favourite motorway. 79 is my lucky number.

Mine is simply my initials. I posted once after going to Grimsby away to watch you with the then new-ish girlfriend and being massively impressed with the atmosphere you created, and giving my thoughts.

I didn’t anticipate back then I’d end up married to her and getting to know quite a few Town fans, else i’d have used something more imaginative and anonymous.

I first went to The Shay in 1979 and my dad used to play hell about our left winger. Then again, he didn't rate Mick Kennedy either & he didn't do too badly.
