Birmingham...BIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRMINGHAM FFS..sort it out..plonker.

Warsaw was my second choice and them new pics show what a beautiful city it is,thanks for showing them.
Jesus. Liverpools online family really are aggressive So where does Frankfurt and Paris come? 3rd and fourth respectively? Idiot.

Van, I suppose thats thier level of maturity! Just because someone questions why they voted for Liverpool when its plainly obvious its crud as are most skylines on this pole compared to the top 3 they try and personally insult us Brummies. I like our extra long Bir when we say our city!

Terrific. Do you want me to forward that to someone who cares? Unlike yourself I wont lower myself to cultural jokes about Liverpudlians as you are so keen to do with Brummies. Hope you have a nice night.

Hmm, if there was one British city whose citizens i wouldn't have expected to resort to stupid stereotypes it would have been Liverpool. After all they are the ones who have been burdened with the worst for the longest time. Lets agree to disagree and let the thread get back on track eh?

Not directly, although we favour them They do however participate in everything else under the European code.

How about we start a new one and keep the little boys (Amsterdam, Essen, Birmingham, Liverpool, a few more) out of it and stick with the genuine high-rise skylines (which I think this thread was ultimately about) this time.

Another option is to take that infantile little "my **** is much bigger than yours" attitude to the UK forum, and keep that shyte there. I doubt anyone on this site was waiting for 2-3 pages of petty local patriotism-infested bull crap in one of the international forums....

That said, Ive seen a few of the projects in the La Defense pipe line, including re clads and new towers and some of them look fantastic! It should be a truly great skyline with time.

It said "skyline" not height. The newest and most modern appears to be Frankfurt - although only a few buildings there of note. The most varied in buildings, with a much superior location is Liverpool. And Liverpool has much better football teams too.
