The Nifty 250: news of the day in so many words

LIVERPOOL must be “realistic” about its economic growth potential and accept it might have to shrink in the years ahead, according to a new report by the Centre For Cities think-tank
Private Sector Cities: A New Geography Of Opportunity ranked Liverpool 43rd in its economic analysis of 56 cities, with Birkenhead 54th.

It said struggling cities should focus on improving quality of life rather than trying to expand.

The city is coming out of the closet by staging its first official gay pride celebration in August, catching up with the rest of the world. Until now, Liverpool was the largest city in the country without one.
August 7 was chosen as the date for the inaugural event to mark the anniversary of Michael Causer’s death in August 2008.

Liverpool is to host the Mobo Awards this year, following a campaign by a fan to bring the event to the city.
Ben Osu, 17, set up a Facebook campaign to make Liverpool the host city.

Mobos ambassador and singer Leona Lewis, said Liverpool was "the perfect choice", presumably for her to turn up at should she be lucky enough to win one.

She was booed by fans at the Awards in 2008 after failing to pick up two prizes.

If you want to watch Liverpool FC, it's going to cost you... seven percent more according to letters being received by season ticket holders today.
Kop seats are £680 online (£732 at window), with the Main Stand, Paddock and Centenary Stands £732 online (£785 at window) and the Anfield Road end, £722 (£774 at window)

The long-awaited details came as a new report showed Liverpool are the third highest paying club for player wages in the Premier League, up 18 percent in 2008/9.
