Sabs and I found the most funniest translation mistake in Anfield. At the Albert pub, this sign shall welcome all football fans of the world. The German translation is a bit wrong, as fan (which is also used in German for fan) is translated as ventilation systems. We nearly died laughing in the famous Anfield road!
So dear owner or visitors of this pub, please tell the staff about their mistake! Thanks!!! But keep it how it is, it's so funny!!!

Wherever there are eating places in the city centre, you can't get away from the pigeons, it's as though they have deserted Trafalgar Square in favour of our lovely city.
Whilst it is sometimes fun for kids to feed the birds, these particular pests are classed as vermin, and there are places where you risk being fined if you are caught feeding them.
I'm not aware of anyone having actually being fined, but you should be aware of the potential for this.

St Lukes Church on Bold Street really ought to be a 'must see' (and is in the VT list as such) as the bombed out church is a kind of monument to those killed in the city during the second world war.
Many people know about the 'The Blitz' in London, but heavy bombing occured in other cities - so Liverpool had it's own blitz due to the large dockyards and ship-building yards.
The church has also become a kind of rallying point for various ethically based campaigns, but also, rather annoyingly a regular hangout for many of the citys' drunks.

Considering its reputation, Liverpool is a very safe city, however there are people out there who want to cause trouble. In the centre, the worst times for this are the weekends when everyone is out partying. A few people like to cause fights and others are just looking for drunken people to take advantage of. More or less like any other UK city.
It's best to move around in a group, and stay away from the bar areas if you are not drinking yourself.

When walking home one night, my friend and i were approached by a middle aged man who said something to us which at first i didn't understand. It sounded like -...you got time on yas?', and so i just looked to my friend who was wearing a watch. He too, didn't know what exactly yer man had said so just said 'sorry, what did you say?'.
and so the stranger repeated himself, this time a little more clearly. ''Are yous Evertonians?''. It was clear then that this lad was looking for a fight, and we just said ''no'' and strolled off. We had just had a brush with a potential beating one might say, not me though, im a fast runner. If ever confronted with such situations, i recommend you just say that you don't really like soccer, or that you support a different local team -not one with big rivalrys- in this case 'Tranmere Rovers.

Just be sensible and dont leave valuables lying about in your car or carry them too openly. Watch where you park your car and make sure it is a guarded car park. mostly yellow lines in city centre, use public transport in if possible. but just enjoy yourself and dont believe the hype.

The majority (not all) of the people of Liverpool appear to get dressed in the dark. This results in Shellsuits tucked in to multi-coloured socks and other such bizzare, allbeit hillarious, sights.

It is said that UK has very good motorways and roads. I'm sure that whoever said that hasn't been to Liverpool. It's a nightmare! For example, I bought my car 5 months ago. Ok, it was second-handed, but with fairly new suspensions and new tires. Within this period I need to change the suspension (or at least do a good service on them) for all wheels and change 2 tires. It's my new suspension-and-tire-change time record! What I'm trying to say is that the roads in Liverpool just suck. They are not at all car-friendly. Mabe they were built for horse carts!?!

Liverpool is a dodgy place. You don't want to be at the wrong place and at the wrong time, if you know what i mean. Of course the wrong time is the time where there's nobody around to help you in case you need any help. The wrong places i know are Toxteth, Dingle and Wavertree. I used tolive just in the middle! DOH!!!

Okay, not _everyone_ in Liverpool steals, but do watch your stuff. Be carefull where you park your car and do not leave anything laying out on the seats. Avoid walking alone at night (this goes for men as well). A friend of mine almost had the cell phone he was talking on stolen by kids riding past on bikes. Also, tons of people run scams where they stand around asking people if they can spare 40p for bus fare. May seem harmless, but I'm sure they turn a nice profit off of the sympathies of tourists.
