"Yob" (or yob's, yobbo, etc.) Yob spelt backwards for 'boy'. Sometimes referred to as 'lout'. Normally an uncouth individual or group of people who shun responsibility to behave in a socially acceptable manner and are often the cause(s) of distressing situations, harassment or engaging within vandalism or graffiti whilst possibly abusing large amounts of alcohol.

For example the 'football yob' who engages in anti-social and criminally based behaviour. Yob's can be seen dressed in 'hoodies' and can come from any background or age.
