That's why he cleaned out 300 Liverpool threads then?

The Liverpool total just hasn't updated yet, it will go down from 393 to 97 soon! Just like the Manc one went down from 294 to 70 just now.

And bustcapl, why did you feel the need to bring this up in this thread? That's one of the problems with the Liverpool board at the moment, it goes off topic so easily.

Ah I see. I just remember it being called 'The John Moores Building' and therefore assumed it was part of the uni.


It's sheer width makes it hard to believe it's 210ft tall.

We might see site preparations before then (ie:portacabins, machinery going on site). Maybe it means the official site opening they have.
