    Ah how could I forget Salfords cries to be remembered as a seperate City rather than a spin off of Manchester, Salford, this is your moment of glory

    What about Catford?

    Dunno what it's like but in his war memoirs, Spike Milligan used to refer to a real **** hole as "Worse than Catford".

    They agree.

    People are being very specific. If it were up to me i'd nominate London, Liverpool and Birmingham. There aren't many places i've came home from thinking "never again", but those three are definites.

    Not much from the black country in general. Thought it'd be first down.

    Agreed. Wolverhampton is the worst place I've been to in England.

    I thought Bristol had a reputation with some quite dodgy areas?

    I went to Wolvo back in September and didn't think it was too bad. Mind you, the sun was shining and I was with my gf on the second day of us being together so it probably wasn't a particularly accurate overview.

    Ive hardly been to Hull. The only time I can remember was playing cricket at The Circle (a First Class ground) whilst about 8 youths smashed up the stands and windows. We just carried on playing.
