LMAO. What the hell are you on about? Because I have a dig at the ridiculous voting off Liverpudlians on this thread you try and say I moan alot? Jesus. Your bias oppinions are the matter of strong condemnation across the UK forums so I'll settle for being a moaner about specific things such as all Liverpudlians voting for Liverpool even though its quite obvious it has nothing compared to Paris, London, Frrankfurt, Rotterdam, Warsaw and co! Maybe you could explain your reasons as to why you think Liverpool has such a great skyline to rank it No 1 in Europe

How old are you? Please use proper language! Its not a case off belittling Liverpool. Its a case of being realistic! Its rather sad that many of you here cant REALISTICALLY claim another city has a better skyline than Pool that you have to vote it number 1 in Europe! Come On! Its silly!

And yes. Great. Steve Morgan is a Scouser and Owns Wolves!? And ...???

Does that make Liverpools skyline grow a 100m? and add considerable density to it?

Get relegated from what? However shame about Birmingham Citys relegation though but Im sure they will come back stronger next season! They need a bit more investment though.

I love Bendiroms skyline, but as i've never been cant really get a full scope of its architectural qualities which seems to be quite poor in pictures which is why I lower it below alot of the other cities.

Shanghai is twinned with Liverpool. Their waterfront was copied from Liverpool. There is a large photo in the Shanghai Custom Building of Liverpool's waterfront.

Liverpool is building the tall Shanghai Tower in the middle of Princes Dock with joint finance from Shanghai.

well he never knocked or belittled any of the other cities' skylines, as you have done here and in the city forum thread, over multiple posts, again and again.

Why you feel the need to spread your disagreement out over multiple posts is beyond me? Can't you just leave it in one post, like van heckler did earlier on in the thread. It's like your having a conversation with yourself, and find yourself agreeing, as nobody has posted between your posts. Your disaproval can then be noted (and subsequently ignored! )

close up it consists mostly of slender, cheap looking towers, with lots of balconies. Maybe im a snob but to me they look worse than council blocks up close.. It looks a thousand times better at night IMO

And because of that Liverpool would'nt even make it into my top 5 let alone number 1. Manchester and Birmingham are significantly better and London trounces all 3 off them within the UK alone. Rotterdam is 20 times better then all the UK provincial cities and Warsaw shits all over us. Dont even get me started on Paris and Frankfurt.

Embarassing.
Manchester and Birmingham?! Better than Liverpool's??!

You've got to be on some pretty heavy meds to see that one. Or on a goad.

"Manchester", "Birmingham"!!!!


Ok- Warsaw: looks interesting from that specific angle at the edge of the grid in which all those towers are, however the only tower of any interest at all is the old Commie one- without which, it's basically Bury New Town.

Proof? Evidence? I never knock! Categorically state that unless its a dig at Wiggley then ssometimes I included Leeds. Maybe your mistaken for my defence of Birmingham which is so often ridiculed by many just to imporve ego's of other city residents, which I think its fair to say we all do. Infact. Birmingham has the least protaganist set of forumers within the UK sub as a whole.

Err what are you on about? I reposted again as I was shocked to see after I voted and written my original reply Liverpool had scored 36 votes 1 less then Frankfurt and double that off any other city.

I'll be honest with you m8 i just can't be arsed trawling threads to find more of the same old tedius "liverpool has restricted views", "its not 180 degrees", "its only got one view" etc... . Judging by the utter shock you've displayed in your initial 5 or 6 posts, you'd think somebody had just rammed a finger up your arse. ffs chill out man!
