Liverpool v Everton is not a rivalry, it has a friendly element to it. No hatred there.

Arsenal and the Jewish kicks off a bit and the players get stuck in.

Away fans were banned from attending the tyne-wear derbies in the early 90's. Newcastle took over a 1000 fans to the stadium of shite to watch their u21's play Sunderland u21's. That's rivalry. It's not as intense as the old firm but streets above the 'moneychester' derby.

You are probably right in that it's the biggest game. However the rivalry still doesn't match the tyne-wear derby. Man united and Leeds is another big one.

I'm sure I've seen some older Celtic strips with different variations of the Celtic cross.

Thanks, to some extent I agree.

Technically, as I'm sure you are aware a derby can only be one where the teams are from the same city or region so United V City is without a doubt a true derby with deep rooted rivalries. Clearly,  there can be both friendly and unfriendly rivalries but I can tell you from my own personal experiences from as early back as the early 1970s that the United V City matches back then were certainly not tame affairs however they were not extremely nasty affairs either. Back in the early 1970s, when I used to wear my red united top in the street as a kid knocking a football against a wall or with my best mate in south Manchester, I regularly had scraps (fights) and lost most, thrown stones at and chased by same aged city fans who lived in my neighbourhood but I refused to take my Bobby Charlton red devils retro cotton shirt off; it was all part of growing up and I Ioved it. If I had worn any other 1st division (premier league wasn't around back then) team's colours there would have been no problem - even Leeds or Liverpool for that matter.  Trouble before and after the Utd V City games did happen but it was no where near as bad as when Leeds United came to Old Trafford.  United V Liverpool was also another team that had a bad reputation for trouble and so was Chelsea.

 

As for Liverpool V Everton this used to be called the 'friendly derby' and still is in many people's books because so many families have supporters in both camps. People argue that some supporters have followed either Liverpool or Everton due to religious reasons because Liverpool had historical links to the protestant Orangemen and Everton to the Catholic religion. In terms of rivalry on the field this long running derby has produced more red cards than any other match since the start of the premier league. Another reason for the rivalry has been that these 2 clubs are situated so close in proximity to each other. Interestingly,  Everton originally played at Anfield before they moved (not sure why) to Goodison park and Liverpool were then formed many moons ago when they left. Over the last few years the rivalry has definitely become more intense between these 2 clubs.

I've never been to a Rangers V Celtic derby but have been a few times to a pro-Celtic pub when that derby was live on TV and the atmosphere was always nothing short than potent and like no other football rivalry I have ever witnessed. 

I guess it all depends on what we mean rivalry. I think these great derby rivalries will continue on especially Celtic V Rangers as they are just too deep rooted in us for many different reasons.

celtic v the team formerly known as rangers cant continue because the team formerly known as rangers went in to administration and were subsequently liquidated in 2012 .

they were replaced in the scottish football league by a team known as sevco 2012 who play under the name THE RANGERS INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL CLUB and who as a new club had to start in the bottom rung of scottish football .

they no longer exist .

sevco see celtic as a intense rival but celtic see sevco as a 6 year old club who have never won a major trophy and who are currently no threat to us .

no more important to celtic than albion rovers or stenhousemuir .
