The London Eye versus Liverpool’s ONE Wheel!

Written by Casey

As much as we’d like to think differently, there’s always been and probably always will be a tangible divide between the North and South of this land.  You may even be able to put forth the argument that there’s some serious one-upsmanship going on.

Gloves at the ready

We like a good bloodbath as much as anybody else, so we’ve decided to pit Liverpool, with it’s “ONE WHEEL” against the “LONDON EYE” to see who packs the best punch.

The Knockout

Apologies to our Northern friends, but the facts support an unequivocal 3-1 London victory.  Then again, that thing is never going to write a classic album like Revolver, so maybe we should call it a draw, eh?

The Rematch

In every great fight, there seems to be a rematch… but what are the grounds?

Liverpool: “We had The Beatles!
London: “Pah! We got The Who!

Liverpool:  “Nothing beats Liverpool Airport parking!”
London: “Oh yeah? Well Gatwick Airport parking is the dog’s…”

Okay, maybe that last one is rather far fetched but it might just add weight as to why these champion cities have such a history of animosity.
