Don't give me a working class area anytime.

 

Are you a troll, or just a snob?

If i had few hundred thousand quid to spend on a house theres absolutely NO WAY id go live in somewhere like the manor just cos its got a 'good sense of community' and all the people are scrubbers so they dont 'look down on anyone' (cos theres no-one lower TO look down on!) no, they just bloody graffiti everywhere and mug people instead. Snobs or yobs. hmmmm tough decision.

Well, I didn't see that but now that I have (thankyou) then I would ask her the same question.

 

Sorry - edited to remove the rather facetious comment

I think you need a few more candidates such as Dore, Fulwood, Ecclesall, Totley. These areas always strike me as soul-less with a large proportion of their population consisting of people who look down on other areas of the city.

 

There is a good case for transferring these areas out of Sheffield.

 

IMHO, that is.

 

 

I had to reply to this one, but firstly I voted other as I think the Wybourn is the worst area.

 

Maxt I resemble your remarks :D

 

Firstly I live in one of the areas you class as soulless, I think you are generalising here a bit.

I was born in a council house, I have lived in some of the areas quoted as the worst areas in Sheffield. Up until recently my mum lived on the Wybourn and my Dad still lives at Basegreen.

Just because I have done OK and chosen to live in a decent area doesn't make me souless.

 

I know you said a large proportion of the population, but I think its more like a small proportion who may look down on those who are not so fortunate.

 

mikey :D:D

Mikey, that's a problem with discussion forums, you are bound to upset someone. I try very hard, well a bit, not to upset too many people.

 

It's not the people I find soul-less, it's the area. I was brought up in leafy suburbdom, lived in less salubrious areas and now live in Walkley, albeit in a detached house. My point being that I have lived in most types of area and still prefer where I am now.

 

I also think that using 'best' & 'worst' to describe areas is a bit elitist. If you could pose the question: 'given your current financial situation in which area would you prefer to live' I'm sure that you would recieve a more balanced view.

 

Or maybe I'm talking b*****ks, it has been known.

 

PS Did you enjoy the fencing?

I know its always difficult to not upset someone, I see what you mean about soulless, but I still disagree, Dore has one of the best community spirits of any area I have lived in, culminating in the Dore Festival week.

Where there are plays, talks, music concerts, a full day Gala and a finale of pop bands at the pubs on the Sat night.

 

PS Fencing was good, my coordination was not as good as I thought, it was more difficult than I imagined, but it was good.

 

 

PPS

Anyone fancy taking up Fencing, give Maxt a shout as he runs a very friendly club.

How's that for a plug

Ho ho ho. Get real though. If i had few hundred thousand quid to spend on a house theres absolutely NO WAY id go live in somewhere like the manor just cos its got a 'good sense of community' and all the people are scrubbers so they dont 'look down on anyone' (cos theres no-one lower TO look down on!) no, they just bloody graffiti everywhere and mug people instead.

That isn't the question, kiddo. The question was about the worst estate, not which ones you don't want to live on. :roll:

It also didn't require juvenile insults about communities who aren't as well off as you presumably are.

Maybe learn to be a little more generous, eh? Even just using the word 'some' rather than 'all' would have been far less nasty.

Yes of COURSE im well off. I was brought up in one of rotherhams many fine mansions and attended one of its famous private schools. I know nothing about what crap areas and the people who live there are like.

As for the question what is sheffield WORST area - i would presume the one you regard the worst would be the one youd want to live in least.

At the end of the day.. it's all personal preference. I personally wouldn't want to live anywhere other than where I live right now on 'The Manor'. (Where we're ALL so called YOBS!) Listen here you, don't tar us all with the same brush!! I don't give a damn where you live whether it be Ecclesall, Totley, Dore wherever. You all have the same MINORITY who deliberately go round causing trouble!! The MAJORITY of people around here are decent people so please don't go calling us all for the stupidity of just a few. It's not fair.

Nice to see Longley did,nt get into the worse areas bit, cause its a nice spot were i live.

However anyone who lives in a council area live there because we have no choice.

If finances were higher then we would all move to a nicer area, deep down i know it and you know it.

You don,t live on the Manor or Pitsmoor if your earning 100k a year because you can afford better, although i doubt that any council area has a resident earning anywhere near that amount so we have to live somewhere and thats a council area like it or not.

Given the choice i would not move to Dore or any other Hallam areas because if i earned big money or won the lottery the country side is were i would head for.

meanwhile i earn less than a quarter of that so i will stay in my private house on a council estate until my lottery numbers come up.
