The second city in Britain. Friendly, down-to-earth people. Not stuck up and shallow like cockneys and not got an inferiority complex like mancs.
Probably the best place in Britain for a night out (from personal experience it is better than London, Gunchester and Nottingham).
Definitely the best place to go shopping, Trafford center my arse!
Has a massive stigma attached to it by ignorant people who mainly haven’t visited it or are stuck-up snobs.
Balti capitol of Britain (unofficially since some council idiot forgot to enter the competition).

One more thing, if mancs think of Greater Manchester as Manchester (because Manchester is woefully inadequate) then maybe Birmingham should be ‘greater Birmingham’ i.e. the West Midlands which is like 3 million people and wipes the floor with their poor excuse for a town? Nah, who cares, Birmingham is the centre of Britain in every respect.

With an area covering 103.4 square miles and a population of over 1 million, Birmingham is the second largest city in England. It is the most multicultural city in the United Kingdom, with a White population of only just under 70%.

The site of Birmingham was founded in the 6th Century by the Anglo-Saxons, but it didn't become a city until 1889.

Birmingham's motto is "Forward", and nicknames of the city include: "Brum", "Brummagem", "Second City", "City of a Thousand Trades", and "Workshop of the World", as it has been the site of many industrial inventions and revolutions throughout history. Natives of the city are known as "Brummies".

Birmingham has many sports teams, including two of the oldest professional football teams in the world. Birmingham City FC, Aston Villa FC and West Bromwich Albion are the three biggest football teams, for rugby union there is the Pertemps Bees and Moseley Rugby Club, for cricket there is Warwickshire County Cricket Club, and for basketball there is the Birmingham Panthers (formerly the Birmingham Bullets).

Although it is England's second largest city, it has the lowest crime rates than the other eight major cities of England (London, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Bristol, Sheffield, Leeds and Newcastle).
Birmingham is a wonderful and interesting city, which was once notorious for its uglyness, but since the 1970s the city has transformed into an attractive modern city, thanks to Birmingham City Council's urban redevelopment projects.

Nice areas - City Centre, Sutton Coldfield, Bournville, Harborne, Hall Green, Moseley.

Areas to avoid - Aston, Bordesley Green, Small Heath, Handsworth.

The true second city of the UK, and any manc that says otherwise needs to come down and have a look for themselves what a great place BIRMINGHAM really is. Most people have a bad opinion of Birmingham but that's because they probably have never been here or have only seen it in the sixties when it was a concrete jungle. But now Birmingham is a proper city with everything a proper city should have. Birmingham has facilities to rival London let alone a place like manchester.
