Oh yeah Riley's there's one in London, so many snooker tables! I'm a 9-ball man so it's good to know I can do that too.

Some might say Moss Side is an "up and coming" area! I technically live in moss side although yes it is very very dodgy in some places at night and I wouldnt wander the streets.

IIRC there is a snooker hall in Longsight which isn't far out. never been though and that is also an area you don't want to walk at night...

Hold on, im supposed to be promoting this place!!

Yay! Go Manchester!

I used to live in Hulme, it's been 'up and coming' for 15 years now =P Although house prices there have increased far beyond the price of my current house in North Manc. now. Weird.

A mate of mine is planning to get a car if he goes there. He's apparently earnt enough money (don't ask me how, I reckon he chats crap as to the origins of his money) to cover his uni costs so can apparently afford a car. Is he just being a stuck-up twat or is it worth him getting a car? I mean, is public transport and walking enough to get where you want or would a car be useful?

Trying to drive around Manchester is the stupidest idea ever. You don't need to, you wouldn't *want* to, and you just plain can't in most of it. It'll cost him a fortune to keep it anywhere near him. Hah on him.

my stepdad goes to manchester like 3-4 times a week for business.

he says that moss-side has a renowned reputation for being the worst area in manchester, which believe me is saying something.

Oxford road is one of the busiest,if not the busiest bus routes in europe. Your never waiting more than 90 seconds for one. Cars are completely pointless if your at uni in Manchester. Suffice to say I will be selling my baby when I start in September

Moss Sides reputation comes from it's days when the Manchester Mafia were based there. Those days are (mostly) gone but it's still a very run down and poor area. Much like Hulme Fishpaste!

Well there is loads to do in Manchester. Oh, all those shops. Even if you don't like shopping you can wonder round for ages, and see new things without going in any shops.
Yeah, the only really rough places are in Moss-side otherwise Manchester isn't too bad really, and no worse than any other city.

Wondering round, eh. We tried that in our own city and got bored because we had no girls with us and we aren't into shopping.

Yeah well, we might have plans for some great fun to do there.
