I was born at Oxford St and grew up in Hunts Cross so I guess that makes me neither Scouse or British then.I think you need to define it more, because I'm scouse from the north of town, but scouse means I'm counted as the same from those from South Liverpool, and they're weird down there. Having said that, there's areas in North Liverpool that aren't hard, so it's Walton scouse. But then our estate was harder than the others, and in our estate our road was harder than the next road, and we used to beat them at footy, so I don't want to be associated with those gimps.
So it really is our road that's the best, mind you next door didn't always give us our ball back, so it really is our house. Of course we don't want grown ups or girls to win, so it was our bedroom. But I'm better than my brother at subutteo, so top bunk is ultimately where my loyalty lies.
Obviously you’re entitled to your opinion, I don’t agree with it though! But one thing I would question is that quote above. I’m a contractor and worked all over the country for the last 25 years. In my experience, scousers are defo not looked on favourably by most. I have to say though, judging by some of the other scousers I’ve come across in that time, I can’t blame them. Some Scousers seem to have play up to the stereotype all the time.The rest of the country doesn't hate people from Liverpool, any more than they hate Brummies, Geordies, Cockneys
Who would play for them? Judas? Davies? Gerrard out of retirement?Lots of really good responses and interesting viewpoints on here. From my perspective they are all welcome and I'l glad people are reflecting on how they create an identity. Thats what it's always been for me. Very quickly I crafted an identity as an Evertonian and basically hated the rest of the country. I never quite got around coming together. We are all different though.
Here's another interesting question, if there was a merseyside football team (a national team akin to say Catalunya) would you support them? As well as England? Instead of? How do you reckon they would do?
The way i class myself is someone who was born in fazak hosy,lived in the city my whole life,been brought up an Evertonian (THANK GOD) and always will be,and our city is in England.So im a scouse Evertonian who is English.Never hear Manc not English or Geordie not English, but the Kopites come put with scouse not English becuase they think everything evolves around them
