I'm telling the truth though. Did you see "the big derby of the Island" Liverpool FC VS Manchester United. 0-0

 

INTER VS MILAN 3-2

And all the derbies of Serie A are always like this. They never end goaless because they are real derbies.

Some would say that this is down to crap defending! :ph34r:

I agree...  It was a great game and you can see that slowly slowly Italian football is regaining its presence.

no i didn't but that's not to say all derbies over here are bad. Spurs vs Chelsea in recent times have been entertaining, as is Spurs vs West Ham on most occasions. Arsenal vs Spurs as well usually. I just didn't like the fact you said we've forgotten how good derbies can be as if British derbies are the only ones that exist when we 100% know that isn't the case. 

Also, there was a goalless Milan derby in 2015. 

 

I will agree that English derbies have lost their touch though.  They're not even close to what they once were in terms of atmosphere and the overall day's experience.  Arsenal v Spurs is rubbish these days and If I'd said that this would be the case 15 to 20 years back, they'd think I was mental.  Man Utd v  Liverpool seems just like any other game these days.

Look at River v Boca...  Where does it fall in with that?

THAT was the only goaless derby della Madonina I can think of. all the others have ended 3-2 or 2-2 or outcomes like that!

 

but yeah I know you have some interesting games in England as well but I see nothing to be jealous of B|

I know you've ninja faced it but it's true. Whenever you got 5-3s between Arsenal and Spurs or Arsenal and Chelsea or 3-2 and 6-1 between City and United you just get "this isn't exciting football, it just goes to show that defending in the Premier League is crap and that's why our teams don't perform in Europe". Now you get one 0-0 draw between Liverpool and United and apparently all English derbies are boring.

Many derbies end in stalemates... But it’s all about how they come to this result. The Liverpool v Man Utd game was boring and it has been for a while for me.
