Manchester is a city in the North West of England. The place is named from the old British name Mamucium plus ceaster, derived from the old Latin ‘Castra’. Manchester is a metropolitan borough with city status. The city has a population of 437,000 and is situated in the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester which has a population of 2,539,000.1 It is one of England’s core cities and is regarded by some as England’s second city, a title also claimed by Birmingham.2
The name ‘Manchester’ is often used to refer to the entire metropolis, much as ‘London’ is usually used to mean Greater London, but many of the constituent parts of this conurbation are substantial and separate towns (a city in the case of Salford) that retain strong identities. People from Manchester are called Mancunians. Manchester is an interesting place with a very rich history.
Mancunians are real people, not scallys. MAnchester is great!
Manchester is a city with a population of 400,00, making it England's 6th largest city.
More famous for Manchester United than anything else. It is a common misnoma in international circles that Manchester is in fact in London.
Often the name Manchester is used to refer to the county in which it is situated, Greater Manchester. This annoys residents of equally independent towns and cities in Greater Manchester, such as Bolton, Wigan and Oldham, who each boast a rich history also.
A resident of Manchester is known as a "Mancunian". They are typified by their strange loyalty to Manchester. Often waylaying people from other cities to tell them all about Manchester. See Terry Christian.
The North's main airport is near Manchester however. Passengers from larger, but equidistant cities, such as Leeds, Liverpool and Sheffield, have bolstered the figures of Manchester Airport to make it one of Europe's largest and busiest.
After London, Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, Liverpool and Sheffield, Manchester is Egland's 6th and the UK's 7th largest/most important city.

Manchester is sick!
A northern, working class industrial and cultural city with a wide variety of people. One of the key cities in the industrial revolution, and the backbone of the country. Despite being smaller than a lot of other cities, an inordiately large amount of industry and talent and culture comes out of manchester, most definitely the capital of the north.
Canberra is the capital of Au, but smaller than Sydney. Go figure.
There is often a debate as to what is the 2nd city in the uk - Birmingham or london. Behind Manchester, of course.
A "Manchester" is the act of calling a friend or acquaintance on a statement they made. When a person states definitively that they will perform an action, anyone within earshot can call "Manchester!"
After the call, the callee must either perform the act or receive a swift punch in the stomach.
Originated at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology on BSB 1 in 2008-2009.

(At this point, Andy either does jumping jacks naked on a frozen lake, or gets punched.)
