After Chelseas big breaking news :D yesterday I got to discuss about the feelings between the London clubs. A feeling I got, but my ArsE and Chelsea fan mates deny, its more important to beat United then to beat the rival neighbour.

But in a way my friends admit that its not the same to beat Chelsea/ArsE then to beat the big bad Manchester United.

I think most of you guys here dont see a win or loss over Citeh as something special comparing then winning or losing to Liverpool and/or Chelsea.

The reason why there's an extra buzz over a 'derby' game various from city to city or country to country. Sometimes its for political reasons, religious or just what social class you belong.

Dont you think all the worst hate feelings are fading away now when clubs grow so big and global and also how the history is getting wiped out by new owners and sometimes even sponsors overtake the clubs (like what happend to the major club in Salzburg) like Red Bull have done in a few places around the world.

My list of interesting derby's eventhough I have no support for any of the teams. And all for different reasons.

Ajax – Feyenoord
Anderlecht-Club Brügge
Barcelona – Real Madrid
Betis – Sevilla
Celtic – Rangers
Fenerbahce – Galatasaray
Lyon – St Etienne
Olympiakos – Panathinaikos
Roma – Lazio
Schalke 04 – Borussia Dortmund

There are other more or less hot or violent derby games like the one in Argentina between Boca Juniors and River Plate.

What is Uniteds hottest derby opponents??

Note: I havent included any of Manchester United's games in the lists.

Please add more games if you know any from around the world. Please tell us why those games are so special. If there's a political reason or what. At least I'd love to know about them.
