I had to look Greebo up. Apparently “assigned that title by trendies and rudes”. Sounds about right. Definition as follows:

A greebo is a person who listens to
rock/punk/metal music and doesn't follow fashion
trends.
They don't usually class themselves as being a
greebo but are assigned that title by
trendies/rudes. Some of them may look quite
threatening but generally they are all around nice
people and they resist starting fights or arguments
with people who do follow trends. However, if you
were to ask one if they had anything against
trendies or rude boys their answer would seldom
be 'no'. Almost all Greebos have some kind of
disliking towards trendies mainly because they
make their lives hell. Abuse is hurled at them when
they walk down the street and they frequently get
the crap beaten out of them for absolutely no
reason other than the fact that they are different.

Think some people are stuck in the 70's/80's when greebo was a term for a person who liked heavy rock music, much like being called a headbanger i suppose, funny thing is im sure Lawson had actually had his hair cut short last yr compared to how long it used to be a couple of yrs back, he can't win with some people coz if he had it shaved off he'd then he called a skinhead:P

I remember him calling the very likeable BBC sports presenter Clare Balding a 'fat lesbian' on here a few years ago.  Disrespectful and offensive.  That's his manner unfortunately.

And the modern meaning of a 'greebo' is someone who is unkempt and dirty looking.  Certainly something which Richard Lawson is not.

greebo

/ (ˈɡriːbəʊ) /

Yeah he made no effort using old machinery and just pulled up if he didn’t make the start. In my opinion his attitude stinks,  you really wouldn’t think he’s a British champion that’s for sure ! 

Didn't have a problem with him at Sheffield last year

I'm sure Prem is further up the list of priorities ;) Not that I blame them for it of course, especially if they are getting rides abroad.

It's the guarantees that's killing it. First I knew it them was Harris with the stripes. Clearly lacked motivation he had in premiership, seems common place now
