It used to be the Merseyside derby without a doubt. 

Nowadays for me it's cod or haddock. 

Not rate bothered!

Now it's probably the NL Derby because how close they are in the league. 

Liverpool are miles ahead of Everton

City are miles ahead of Utd 

So yeah, it's got to be the NL Derby now for sure.

Fuck the M23 xD

The Manchester Derby is nowhere near the fiercest. They don't even fill their grounds on Derby match days. 

Saying that, neither do Arsenal against Spurs. 

People say the Merseyside derby is family friendly but is it bollocks. The media promote that by showing shots of red and blue together to calm it down but make no mistake... heads get smashed like anywhere and the grounds are bouncing.

What was I even saying.... as if 2 southern puff clubs could be the fiercest rivalry? 

It's like my nan n Pops Fighting over the remote ffs.

I've always liked the tyne wear derby when both are in the league...

Agree with this.

The Merseyside derby is no longer that fierce because Everton has rolled over in past few seasons. There are also few local players in the teams. 

 

However, I can see this weekend's game being a good game, because the Everton midfield looks settled and Richarlison's form should make this tough for Klopp's side.

I don't think any of the 'bigger derbies' in England really have that much of an interesting story behind them, it's mainly just basic tribalism 'we don't like the nearest team to us' sort of stuff. There are sort of vague intraicies, Newcastle-Sunderland civil war stuff or Liverpool/Manchester industrial rivalry, but they don't really have the in built hatred you get with the Old Firm or Boca V River.

I'd say West Ham v Millwall is probably the most fierce in England. Spurs v Arsenal is usually the best for entertainment though.

Fuck off M23 😂 A. It's Brighton, B. There's 45 miles between the two clubs, it's not a derby.

Voted Arsenal and Spurs, London derbies are generally the best. Spurs/Chelsea/West Ham, Arsenal/Spurs and West Ham/Millwall. Newcastle and Sunderland up there too.

Manchester Derby was great back when Shaun Wright-Phillips was running the show.

The calculated distance from Liverpool to Manchester is equal to 31 miles  https://www.distancecalculator.net/from-liverpool-to-manchester

The Manchester Derby has never historically been a national event where football is concerned.  If there's ever been serious sentiments there like the ones we could all cite from around the world, they've manifested themselves at certain times within history and maintained themselves a local issue.

No English football derby is what it once was or what I remember it to be but of the ones mentioned, the only derby that still conjures up resentment and a sense of hatred (not all that real anymore) is the North London Derby.

Every now and then you can overhear total garbage being spouted by certain types of people that take you back to at least the '80s.

M23 Derby - 10 arrests.

North London Derby - 7 arrests.

The fear is real.

Merseyside Derby - £8000 of fines. 

Still the home of football up here.

East Midlands - having no clubs nearby that are of worthwhile rivalry? 

Priceless.
