The neighbors who love to hate each other
"The neighbors who love to hate each other"

"Martin Söderström about scousers and mancs"

"”Is the british 10's the biggest varumärkeskollapsen ever?”"

"the Question was asked of the writer Andrev Walden. And it does only hurt for that to be true."

"To be anglofil in the 2010s has hell not been easy."

"day by Day, the carefully cultivated narrative of Britain as a cradle of knowledge, common sense, courtesy, and poise debauched. From the inside. Of the british themselves."

"The incredible circus that is the Brexit-the process has gotten us to laugh at the Uk. As anglofil american has suffered a sekundärskam difficult to bear."

"Perhaps precisely because of this, Martin Röshammars book as a gift from above. He speaks to the place in my heart as forever is folded to the Northwest. An England so far from the afternoon tea and tweedkavajer you can get. Where factory buildings are forever sooty, music and football is life and it always smells faintly of frityrflott, and spilled beer. Just as I got Röshammar his love to the cities from the music and football. It feels like he's writing directly to me."

"What happens to a city where the majority of the population is working class, but it only built homes of the common people can not afford?"

"Liverpool vs. Manchester is an attempt to describe how two neighboring cities with so much in common can be such bitter rivals."

"Perhaps it all started with a channel. At least that is what historians mean. The port city of Liverpool snuvades on the large income then textilmetropolen Manchester got tired of the neighbors ' handelsdominans and built the Manchester ship canal. A ”betrayal” that never really forgiven."

"But the canal was completed in 1893. It may well not be relevant today? It has probably not either. But there remains the foundation to hatkärleken."

"”Scouse bastards” from Liverpool or cocky Mancunians – both get the image of The Other with their mother's milk. Extremely simplified: Scousers are unemployed whiners and Mancunians are inflated låtsastuffingar with ape-like gait. When Liverpool is playing against one of the Manchester-law yells lug into it later ”you'll never get a job” to the Liverpool classic ”You'll never walk alone”. Unkind, but not without heat."

"Which also summarizes the two cities' identities. Hard arbetarklasstäder with amazing music venues and football teams in the world. Martin Röshammar pointing cleverly at the similarities and the important differences that exist. On the spot, he interviews football fans, musicians, activists, lgbtq struggles, and local profiles. He does it well. In its best moments feels Liverpool vs Manchester which to be there."

"basically the rivalry between the scousers and the mancs strange. The cities are so similar – illröda industrial cities with proud motståndstradition and multicultural arbetarklasskultur – it's a little like that hate their own reflection in the mirror. But of course, you can not say to a scouser or a manc."

"Certainly, it is a declaration of love Martin Röshammar written. But in the meeting with the people that make the cities dare he ask difficult questions. What happens to a city where the majority of the population is working class, but it only built homes of the common people can not afford? What does it do with a city's soul fotbollsturister, Röshammar himself, stirreth up the ticket prices so that fans from the city is no longer able to see the matches? How urban the proud history of the Beatles! Madchester! Alan Turing! Emmeline Pankhurst!) perhaps standing in the way of the future? The risk to turn into a Disneyland for nostalgisugna music and fotbollsresenärer is great."

", ”When you come back the next time, nothing will be the same,” said a local music profile to me the last time I was in Manchester. He pointed towards some of the cranes that now form the city's skyline. It was meant as something positive. Manchester and Liverpool has always moved forward. Rest after the Luftwaffe, the IRA, bombs, and Growth."

"And all of the rivalry to spite: when it is really including they have always been united. In the case of disasters such as Hillsborough or in the Manchester Arena-the bomb goes scousers and mancs came out into the streets to help each other. When it comes to the crunch, they are all Northerners. And that is why I continue to love them."

"Liverpool vs. Manchester"
