Post Feistiest Club Football Rivalries..
As a football fan, i've experienced some great football rivalries.. intense environment, stressful matches but somehow it gives me excitement as a footy fan.. being a UNITED fan, i spend most of my time waiting for any encounter with any of our rivals.. huhu..

There are so many football rivalries in football.. so which one do u feel is the most intense & the biggest rivalries?

HEre just to name some famous club football rivalries..:

UNITED vs Liverpool
This lovely pairing do not get on… at all! The hatred between these two clubs trumps quite easily the clubs’ meetings with their city rivals.The rivalry between the two clubs is considered in many ways the last target that Sir Alex is aiming to conquer as United boss, as the Scot is attempting to overhaul the Merseyside outfit’s league title count. Wisely, this game tends to be an early kick-off so as to prevent fans from having too much to drink beforehand and therefore becoming even less enamoured with one another!

The Liverpool and Manchester United rivalry is based on inter-club jealousy more than any more significant social phenomenon. The two clubs are easily the most successful in the history of English football, and matches between the two are some of the most keenly anticipated in the sport.

While overt violence is now rare during or in the immediate aftermath of games between these two sides, neutrals attending these matches can’t help but be aware of the simmering tensions between the two sides. The unique aspect of this rivalry is that the tensions are extended across the globe, with both clubs having millions of supporters around the world.

The two clubs have developed a vicious hatred of each other, fuelled by incidents of hooliganism in the 1980s and 1990s, and by the singing of spiteful songs targeting the two clubs' respective sore points, the Munich and Hillsborough disasters. In this hateful atmosphere, boiling point is often reached with the authorities having to work very hard to avoid major confrontation.


UNITED vs City

City and United have preserved one of the oldest rivalries in European football. Both clubs were founded in the late 19th century. Even although United has been more prevalent, entertaining matches often happen when the two teams meet. The 1993 encounter between City and United at Maine Road is considered one of the greatest EPL games of the 90s. United won the battle 2-3 thanks to two goals by Cantona and a late tiebreaker by Keane.

UNITED vs Leeds UNITED

The rivalry between Leeds United and Manchester United, sometimes nicknamed the Roses rivalry, is a footballing rivalry played between the Northern English clubs Leeds United and Manchester United. The rivalry originates from the strong enmity between the historic counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire that resulted from the Wars of the Roses, which took place during the 15th century. Although the cities of Leeds and Manchester lie over 40 miles (64 km) apart, the tradition is upheld and this strong feeling can still be seen between the two clubs. Independent research by the Football Fans Census has shown that in English football both Leeds and Manchester United are ranked within the top three clubs based on the number of rivals they have.

In the past, rivalry between the two clubs has gone beyond the action on the field at Old Trafford and Elland Road. Hostility has become more intense over the years and during the 1970s, when British football hooliganism was at its height, fights between Leeds' Service Crew and Manchester United's Red Army, two of the most notorious hooligan firms in Britain, were commonplace and became known as some of the most violent clashes in British football.Many people were injured in these encounters and when the clubs face each other nowadays a high level of security is always required.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur

Arsenal versus Tottenham Hotspur is one the biggest derby in the world because the bitterness is real, enduring and nasty. Although both clubs were formed in the 1880s, the enmity began when Arsenal moved from Woolwich, south of the River Thames, to Highbury, four miles from White Hart Lane and perceived by outraged Tottenham to be in their manor. The hatred intensified dramatically when the Gunners, thanks to some shrewd if not entirely scrupulous politicking, were elected to the expanded First Division in 1919 at Tottenham's expense.

And it has grown steadily in succeeding decades as one club or the other has enjoyed ascendancy on the pitch. There is a razor-sharp divide within North London, and at every Arsenal game you will hear Gooners ritually abusing Spurs with great gusto, and vice-versa - even though the enemy are playing somewhere else entirely. When derby day itself comes around, the atmosphere in the streets is as ugly as it gets. And events such as Sol Campbell's 'defection' to Highbury in 2001 ensure that the fires of mutual loathing never die down...


Everton vs Liverpool

Liverpool versus Everton is one the biggest derby in the world because it is the only derby in the world where supporters can intermingle in the stands. The ‘brothers’ progressed to the 1984 Milk Cup final and instead of differing chants bellowed from each set of fans, the only thing that was audible for a while were unanimous chants of: 'Merseyside... Merseyside... Merseyside.'

Following the Hillsborough Stadium disaster in 1989 a sea of red and blue Liverpool and Everton scarves were stretched from the gates of Goodison Park to the gates of Anfield to honour those who had died. The two clubs also united over the death of Evertonian Rhys Jones; an 11-year old shooting victim who died as he was shot in the neck while crossing Croxteth Park.

There have been a few ugly isolated incidents (Phil Neville being spat on, chants about Gerrard's girlfriend), but on the whole because of the closeness of the stadia, families often have both Reds and Blues in the same household... meaning it is, for the most part, a friendly derby.


Rangers vs Celtic

Celtic versus Rangers is one of the biggest derby in the world because any game played within a city populated by 620,000 people, yet which can generate a worldwide audience of 150 million, is a sheer force of nature. Dating back to 1888, the 'Old Firm' derby is huge. The 1969 Scottish Cup final was seen by 132,870 spectators at the national stadium, Hampden, and the fixture remains a red-hot ticket.

The all-Glasgow rivalry is in the spotlight now more than ever, with authorities clamping down on sectarian hatred. Celtic are considered a Catholic club and Rangers Protestant, while political aspects also come into play. Unfortunately, violence and abuse have always been part of the landscape.The games themselves are powder-keg affairs played at break-neck speed, with players from around Europe losing themselves in the experience.


Barcelona vs. Real Madrid

The matches between Barcelona and Real Madrid are some of the most keenly anticipated in football. The rivalry between the two clubs is based on nationalist sentiments, with Barcelona representing the separatist Catalans while Real Madrid represents the core of traditional royalist, conservative Spanish culture.

Virtually ever Spaniard with an interest in football has taken a side in this rivalry, based largely on empathy with the political roots of the club they support. While extreme violence between supporters is rare, it is not unusual for disputes between the two teams themselves to make headlines in the national newspapers.


Real Madrid vs Atlético de Madrid

Real Madrid versus Atlético de Madrid is one of the biggest derby in the world because of a strange phenomenon: every team in Spain has had their 'glory moment' or ‘day of inspiration' against Real Madrid at some point, but Atlético never has. It has been a long, long time since the 'colchoneros' enjoyed their last win against their capital rivals in Spain, and every derby becomes more of the same drama for them: Atlético might play better, might go ahead, and might also play with one or two more players... but they can't beat the 'merengues'. Besides this - or maybe because of this - any big clash between these two brothers is a must to see!

Milan vs Internazionale

They are two of the best teams on the planet. The Rossoneri are the reigning World Champions and possess three Golden Ball players on their roster. Inter are the most important team in Serie A, and have won the last three Scudetti. Inter and Milan also have a South American rivalry. The Rossoneri prefer Brazilians, the Nerazzurri – Argentines. The Superclasico is always a fascinating game…

The most infamous of the derby matches between AC Milan and Inter was the second leg of the Champions' League quarterfinal on 12 April 2005. The game was abandoned after AC Milan goal keeper Dida was hit by a flare.


Lazio vs Roma

it's the most passionate game for players and citizens of the Italian capital. For many years the two clubs had different stories. If the Giallorossi were doing well, the Biancoazzurri were usually struggling or in Serie B. Roma supporters boast that their team is more popular, while Lazio fans point out that their club is "the first to be born in Rome". Roma have Francesco Totti as a flag, idol, and talisman. Lazio did have Alessandro Nesta. The game is a tense affair, and there are usually riots outside the Olimpico Stadium. There is a saying that ‘the team who are lower in the table usually wins the derby’.

As both sides are based in the Stadio Olimpico, there is no home advantage and this has led to the traditional battles between the Lazio ultras in Curva Nord and the Roma ultras in Curva Sud. Violence breaks out at each derby and, in 1977, Vincenzo Paparelli, a Lazio fan in the Curva Nord was killed when hit by a shipping flare fired across the ground by a Roma fan. Paparelli has become a symbol of the Lazio fans' passion for this Derby.


Juventus vs Inter Milan

The Derby d'Italia (Italian for "Derby of Italy") was coined back in 1967 by the famous Italian sports journalist Gianni Brera as the bi-annual football fixture in Italian football between Internazionale and Juventus. The name was also given to this fixture as Inter and Juventus were the only two teams never to be relegated from Serie A, AC Milan twice being relegated in the 1980s (though Juventus were recently relegated for the first time for the 2006/2007 for their part in Calciopoli).

The matchup between Juventus and Inter is one of the most intense derby matches in Italy between two teams not from the same city. The two teams are also ranked first and second in wins and goals in Serie A history.


Ajax vs Feyenoord

The most important rivalry in the Netherlands is that between Ajax Amsterdam and Feyenoord Rotterdam, known as De Klassieker (The Classic). Both clubs have won the Dutch national championship numerous times and, along with PSV, have dominated the Dutch league since the beginning of professional football in Holland in the 1950s. Ajax has been the more successful of the two, and is renowned for its technical style of play, while Feyenoord has the blue collar appeal closely associated with Rotterdam as a port city.

On occasions the rivalry has turned violent. In 1997, fans of the two teams clashed in a field, known as the Battle of Beverwijk. One fan was killed and many were injured. More recently, in 2004 during a pitch invasion Jorge Acuna was put into hospital after being attacked by a fan.


Boca Juniors vs. River Plate

The Boca Juniors rivalry with River Plate isn’t a football rivalry so much as a form of all-out class warfare. The Boca Junior team represent the East-side boys, playing for a team with its roots deep in Buenos Aires working-class culture. River Plate, meanwhile, represent the privileged inhabitants of the same city.

Matches between these two teams are described as the Superclasico, the ultimate football derby. Fans are usually strictly segregated and are known to taunt each other with songs and slogans throughout the match. It is not unusual for a Superclasico to end with pitched battles between hardcore supporters on the streets of Buenos Aires.


Palmeiras vs Corinthians

The biggest rivalry in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, SE Palmeiras and Corinthians have always drawn a lot of attention when they face off each other. There have been books written and movies shot about this rivalry, including a version of Romeo and Juliet where Palmeiras and Corinthians take the place of the Montagues and Capulets.

Palestra Itália (now known as Palmeiras) was founded in 1914 as an Italians only club. Some Corinthians' Italian members and the player Bianco, the only Italian in the Corinthians' squad, then left to join the new club and were labeled as traitors. Because of that, the teams became rivals, and remain the fiercest rivals in São Paulo to this day. This is one of the greatest rivalries in the world.
