    Default World Cup Fever in Liverpool Your Pics and Images of Buildings People and Places etc

    Hey there peeps,


    ADVERTISING




    I'm sure our band of snappers have taken pics of how people have began decorating themselves, buildings, cars, other structures, flags etc.

    Share them here!

    In 30 years time ex residents of these streets might be looking for photos of where they once lived saying 'do you remember we had all those deckies out for the World Cup in 2010.

    All of these are near County Road, Liverpool 4.

    There's a cpl of houses by mine that are all done up too. Does the same apply to England flags on houses for that text joke doing the rounds ?

    Not World cup related but lets hope the streets are at least like this in 2 years time for the Queens jubilee

    Thanks - I'm still struggling to understand why it's England [St. George's flag] at the World Cup; and Great Britain [Union Jack] at the Olympics?


    No wonder we don't win much at sports, we can't decide which country we are?

    Coz the olympics is GB and Ireland and in footy the countries that makes up GB have their own association, much to FIFA and UEFA's annoyance

    That might be the reason Smurfy but it still leaves me with a sore head???

    If we're making up the rules why don't we play as the UK instead of GB, then Scotland won't hate us as much at footy? I bet they were all wearing USA shirts yesterday.

    Because we'd lose members on the FIFA and UEFA boards and also end up with a UK league rather than English and Scottish and hence less places in Europe

    Plus the scots wouldn't support the team when it won't have any of their players in it

    Great pics Lindy. Very colourful. I believe some streets off Knowsley Road, Bootle are all decked out too.

    I've tried doing it with my phone, while walking. Half of them either came out at a big angle or missed the house completely.

    You know, Ged would probably just go up and ask them

    I think most people take it as a compliment for all their effort. I've only been accosted once in the Pitt st area when some lad thought I was a snooper from the soash. It was a good job I had my brown pants on.
