You would get a different response in Africa or Asia if you mentioned Liverpool. Especially Asia.

Quite a few are actually. We do have an academy and youth teams too.

Three years ago, nobody in Africa or Asia would have known what Leicester was. Their league win was worth about £150m to the local economy. The team has done a fantastic job in raising the profile of Leicester.

That's only cos you don't like sports. Liverpool FC dominated English footy in the 70s. Many people would think of "The Reds" when asked about Liverpool.

How many of the Denver Broncos are from Denver? Or any other team? Are you seriously saying that every football (as opposed to footy) team there is made up exclusively of guys from that state or city?

That's not my impression, but the point still stands. If I mention Detroit to you, do you honestly think of the Lions, Tigers, Pistons, or Red Wings before you think of Danny Brown, The Stooges, The White Stripes, or Eminem?

I don't like American sports either.

No I don't, I would think of Eminem, but I would think of the Bulls if Chicago was mentioned, or the Lakers if LA was. There might be cities who are more associated with their music output but that isn't always the case, imo.

I hate every single woman who has ever been on a show titled "The Real Housewives of (insert city name here)".
