I can't say I liked Liverpool, the one time I visited. Isn't the sort of place people gravitate to, either. Like you get people who move to Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Newcastle, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, even Aberdeen. Got some great friends (ok, three) from Liverpool but never known anyone to move there.

All depends on jobs really. I have been to Liverpool a few times and actually like the city. Has alot more to shout about than Brum imho.

Is that why nearly everyone I know is either from other parts of the UK or foreign? :lol:

It has a very large population of ex-students that stay.

Only scouser I've ever worked with moved to Kilcooley in Bangor because he didn't want to raise his kids in Liverpool. This was the better option apparently.

Yeah. But some of us don't live in the North part where the likes of people that describe themselves as "Scousers" live. :lol:

Actually he hated being called a Scouser, he was from the other bit apparently. Like there's a difference. The big cultural divide apparently was everyone in his bit of town wore Fred Perry and everyone else wore Superdry or something :lol:

I don't get basketball. This seems reasonably accurate:
