    Our 'nickname' amongst our friends down the road has really started to get under my skin.

    Everywhere I go I am referred to as Mr Dingle...even the other day when sat next to a perfect stranger on a flight who responded 'oh Mr Dingle' when he asked who I supported and I said 'Wolves'.

    Two things rankle.

    1. I am right aren't I in saying that this is/was oiriginally a Blackburn insult to Burnley on basis that Burnley is so far into East Lancs as to be in Yorkshire...i.e. Emmerdale...i.e the Dingles?

    2. It just doesn't work. I am fully aware that Wolverhampton is not exactly des res but it is slightly better than Sandwell in any socio-economic indicator you might care to mention.

    So, should we embrace this and start calling ourselves Dingles to draw the sting from this humorous insult? I am aware that the original insulting 'Mackem' given to Sunderland fans is now worn as a badge of honour. Then again that does have some basis in fact...i.e. make them and tack em as a reference to inferior shipbuilding skills of Sunderland vs Newcastle dockers.

    The Dingle thing has taken hold to such an extent that I am convinced the rest of the country must think that the blue and white half of the area is erudite, intelligent and witty whilst we are well...Dingles.

    I think the old E&S MolMix briefly had us calling them Bennies. Should we bring this back?

    Am I an over sensitive soul?

    Yes. You are. Smack the next $$$$er that calls you that. If we all did one day it would soon stop.

    Stop being gay and man up.

    (does this response make me over sensitive too? It does, doesnt it? Bo****ks).

    I've never really understood the wit, and I've never had anybody call me that (granted, I'm from London).

    A classic chant that never fails to make me laugh and it annoys the hell out of my Bennie colleagues.

    Most people realise by their early teens that the best way of dealing with name-calling is to ignore it. Any opposition fan reading the first post will be thinking it annoys them and will see this as a green light to continue. For the sake of long ball man's well-being I think the mods should delete this thread before Mr Boing and co see it!

    I'm surprised the imbreds keep the Dingle name going it doesn't bother most wolves fans at all. We've got enough in our locker to give them a reply.
    I really just want to beat them in May.

    You are definitely more Dingle than me Jim, I was born in Kent but moved to Wolvo when I was 2 years old and went to school there. As soon as I left school at 16 I high tailed out of Wolvo into the Navy. Have supported Wolves longer than most though, more than 65 years.

    Irritates the hell out of me that they have managed to get it national !! Bennies has to be the way forward as it is more their region and the original thick dumb and stupid inbred

    What a super thread.

    As is pointed out, the best way to deflect is through humour.....hence all the tesco bags over the South Bank.

    Always amused me that the 'insult' for us was based on the most successful company in Britain.

    The dingle thing has stuck tis true - and as long as people keep coming up with things like 'see you in the stile' (i.e. i'm really hard and you wouldn't dare turn up) it's likely to.

    Most Wolves mates of mine take it in good humour and call me Mr $$$$ in return. :D

    Firstly, don't be a keyboard warrior. Turn up then.

    Secondly, $$$$ off. This is a "Wolves Wolverhampton Wanderers Fans Forum" - not a football forum for fans of $$$$.

    I think you might have missed the point Junglee. I'm no warrior and i'm not interested in fighting, just football. I'd quite happily meet anyone for a pre-match beer anywhere if it was a genuine gesture rather than an underlying suggestion of violence.

    I'm really looking forward to the game but what a shame generations of family's and kids don't attend (at either ground) because of the actions and mentality of a few.

    I hope you enjoy it and stay up, i'm looking forward to it. For people who want a pre-match ruck i'm sure there are more suitable forums than this.

    All the best.

    MolMix is a Wolves forum, but open to anyone who wants to post civilly/reasonably on here - which mrboing has done so far. The insults and offers to meet simply show up our own fans.

    True and unnecessary Mutchy. The best way to annoy someone is to ignore them.

    Mr boing doesn't even show up at his local when we played them
    At the poorthorns!!
     
  34. It's a bit like Blues fan singing Yam Yam Yam Yam. Last time I checked the brummy accent was voted the worst in the country so it's a bit rich coming from them!

    The origin of this dingle name calling is apparently more than just picking up on what Wednesday call Barnsley. About a bloke or something?? Can't remember the story unfortunately.

    He has no need to 'show up'. What do people intend to do? Threaten him for daring to post on a Wolves forum? Beat him up for the team he supports? Utterly pathetic.

    Well said.

    The last 10 years or so with the development of the internet has seen this new breed of geekoid geezer and it's laughable.

    Given how its beyond you to converse decently with him on here, its an absolute mystery as to why he hasn't jumped at the chance of a 'drink' with you.
    As I've said before, calling for meet ups as an answer to a disagreement on an internet forum isn't something we want to see on here.
