Liverpool vs. Manchester. by tucsonmike on 18 August 2012 2:52am
 
The ignorant Yank (me) needs to be educated. How do the two differ from one another?

Liverpool plays in all red, Manchester United plays in red top, white shorts. The home team retains these colours. I don't know either away colours.

Liverpool still have Stephen Gerrard as a player and Manchester United still have Ryan Giggs (I think).

Oasis came from Manchester.

Liverpool is on the Mersey, whilst Manchester is on the...oh, the Mersey.

Liverpool were beaten yesterday (by Bolton Wanderers I think) and Manchester United (and City) are probably playing today.

Clarify Mike... what is the qquestion mate?
 
Re: Liverpool vs. Manchester. by tucsonmike on 20 August 2012 2:52am
 
The question is more, how do the two differ from each other culturally? I know about the soccer rivalry.

Interesting question Mike, both would term me as a `Southern Softy` as I am originally from Southampton, and, therefore, in their eyes I would be moat likley to be termed `Posh and well spoken` (both, in my eyes could not be further from the truth). The `rivalry` between many of the areas of the UK is very much limited to friendly banter as in most places around the world. There are however genuinley noticable differences in regional accents, dialects and more importantly language. Most places in the UK have differing ways of saying the same things, and, it is not unusual for a `southern softy` to stand mouth agape when a broad accented Geordie is yapping ten-to-the-dozen and making no sense to the listener. There is a stronger rivalry between Manchester people (Mancunions, or `Mancs`) and the Liverpudlians (Scousers) and this is due in the main to the Football team rivalries, and that both cities are linked by a motorway. Culturally I (personally) would put Liverpool a shade ahead of Manchester, they are more pro-active in their self promotion, Both cities are incredibly productive musically, but in that, again, I prefer the old `Merseybeat` era, aaahhh, that sixties sound. I would love to hear a Manc and a Scousers comments on your question.

I don't think Liverpool and Manchester are geographically far enough apart to differ culturally. There is a language accent difference and the Liverpudlian is called a Scouser.

Thanks folks, just proves you can teach an old Yank new tricks. :)
