What's all this BS from Klopp about snow affecting the result? He does know that we played on the same pitch doesn't he?
My issue isn't with architecture or environment. A city is defined for me by the intangibles of character & atmosphere. Liverpool has always exuded an air of menace & larceny.All I can say is that this is not my experience. The scousers I have met have been grand company. Perhaps Give Us A Wave has been unlucky in the people he met or perhaps I have been lucky.
However, the actual city we have visited has been the same. I suspect Give Us A Wave has had his eyes shut. With the deplorable exception of the Catholic cathedral the city is full of beautiful buildings. Give Us A Wave did you visit St Georges Hall or the Anglican Cathedral or St James Gardens?
****ing good film thoughMy issue isn't with architecture or environment. A city is defined for me by the intangibles of character & atmosphere. Liverpool has always exuded an air of menace & larceny.
If you've ever seen The Warriors, the whole film is basically a reinterpretation of my attempt to get from Stanley Park to Lime St. After being deliberately set up by the local constabulary to get the crap hammered out of me. I was 16 at the time. No doubt that was an example of their famous sense of humour.
Its also the only place in the UK I've been threatened with a knife on a dance floor. Or stamped on on the top deck of a bus by half a dozen people. Or robbed with a broken bottle.
My favourite quote is from a guy from Birkenhead I met at a music event. He said that living that close to Liverpool was "like having to stand next to an outside toilet with the door open on curry night" Considering what a shithole Birkenhead is in it's own right that's an interesting perspective.
