This book presents more friendly city rivalry anecdotes from Ian Black.
How much do Mancs hate Scousers? Well, there's not a lot you can compare it to, except of course how much Scousers hate Mancs.
Which is rather a lot, as you might gather from this charming little ditty from the Anfield terraces: There's only one Dr. Shipman, there's only one Harold Shipman, we own him our thanks, cos he killed lots of Mancs, we're walking in a Shipman wonderland.
Then there's the belief among Mancs that all Scousers want to move to Manchester and drive down property values, just out of badness. (Not the case, according to the Scouse woman who says: 'I wouldn't want to move to a place where you have to put on matching clothing to pick up the milk from the doorstep.') There are diatribes and angry jibes, but, according to Ian Black, the bestselling author of "Weggies vs Edinbuggers", it's just a friendly rivalry, really.
