bart Posted April 10, 2004 Share Posted April 10, 2004 MANCHESTER Manchester is a great place to live. The people there take pride in the fact they come from Manchester. When going to Manchester there are a couple of things that would be very aparent to you. The peoples love for football, in Manchester there are two football teams. One called Manchester United and one called Manchester City. There are other lower leauge teams that surroung the City. But mainly if you live their you are either a Blue or a Red. Being a fan of another team can get you stick from the locals. You would be better of saying you don´t support a team. Unless you was born in another City. Another thing about Manchester is the impact the palce has made on the Music Scene. Birthplace of Northen Soul, Some say Indie. Also the home of the lengedary night club the Haçendia. Unforentley due to the drugs and gang culture the place is now closed. If anyone had been there they will forever hold a memory for what was the Birthplace for many world renouded bands. The Likes of a Certain Ratio, Joy Division, Sex Pistols, New Order, Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, Oaisis and many others will forver hold a leagcy. Some people say this was also the Birthpalce were coldplay were discoverd. At the battle of the bands The people of Manchester tend to be very friendly and outgoing. And they have a great deal of Civic Pride. Manchester is a plcace what could be described as very comspoltion bosting one of the biggest gay sceens in Europe with its many bars and clubs by Canal Street. One a year depending on the Local Authroties. There is annual Mardi Gras hundreds or thousands if not near a million people attend this popular gay event. Since the IRA bomb that nearly destroyed the City Center of Manchester in June 1996. The place has seen a lot of new buildings and jobs created boosting a New found wealth, this was celbrated in style in the Year 2002. When Manchester proudly hosted the Commenwaelth games were Atehlets and spectors from all corners of the globes made their pomage to Manchester. The Center peice for all of this, is now known as the City Of Manchester Stadium. Which when the games had finsished was converted into a football ground and now is the Home of Manchester City Football Club, a state to the Art 48 000 Capitcity staduim. Locally nicked named the Blue Camp. This was the curtain raiser for the first Game Manchester City played there was against Barcelona who play their Home Games at the Nou Camp. Manchester people have a ironic way of idenfiying things but I guess this is a fitting tribute to what is a spactular place. Make sure you visit Manchester U will love it.
