I’ve been reading a lot of this:
“Most major footballing nations have one fixture that is unquestionably the biggest in the country: whether El Clasico (Barcelona vs. Real Madrid) in Spain, the Superclasico (Boca Juniors vs. River Plate) in Argentina, Der Klassiker(Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund) in Germany, Le Classique (Paris Saint-Germain vs. Marseille) in France or O Classico (Benfica vs. FC Porto) in Portugal, the theme is familiar and the implication clear.
English football is different. It lacks an equivalent contest, although the biggest game is usually considered this weekend’s fixture: Manchester United vs. Liverpool. It’s clearly England’s rivalry in a historic sense, but it’s peculiarly lacking in major showdowns over the years.”
I’d rather sit down and watch a Liverpool v Everton game, or even, United vs Citeh, for that matter.
Liverpool vs Man United is just another top team game, that’s all.
