Rivalries, which side of the fence?

In the pub yesterday, with unfortunately a rather smug Spuds mate. Got us talking about rivalries, personally I've always preferred Arsenal to them, not sure why, maybe it's the red, maybe because they started on the right side of the river or maybe because my first game was Arsenal Vs Charlton. Anyhow, is it just us - or do you have a definite preference for one side of a rivalry that has nothing to do with Charlton?

For me: 

Arsenal over Tottenham
Man City over Man Utd
Everton over Liverpool
Newcastle over Sunderland
Southampton over Portsmouth
Villa over Birmingham
Forest over Derby
Rangers over Celtic
Real over Barca


Loads more completely pointless preferences but I won't list them all, I could be here all morning  :D

  • Arsenal - good mate is ST holder and I've been a few times with him. I have to keep reminding him I don't hate Spurs (just like he does to me re Palace)
    Man U
    Villa over Brum
    Barca over Real
    not really bothered on the rest. The younger me would have gone for Celtic over Rangers just because of the assumed politics but I've since met enough decent Rangers fans (and arsey Celtic ones) to be neutral. 
  • Chizz said:
    Charlton over everyone 
    Anyone over Palace 

    Pretty much this for me, although would have to pick Villa over the Birmingham scumbags.
  • Arsenal over Tottenham - When in doubt, choose the team wearing red...
    Man City over Man Utd - ...unless is Man Utd.
    Everton over Liverpool  - When in doubt, choose the team wearing red...
    Newcastle over Sunderland - ... unless they are in stripes.  Not bothered really, both alright
    Southampton over Portsmouth - Pompey. Don't know why never really liked Soton.
    Villa over Birmingham - No contest. There's no way I want the Millwall of the midlands to beat anyone - unless they are playing the Millwall of the south.
    Forest over Derby - Forest
    Rangers over Celtic - 3rd Lanark 
    Real over Barca - Hmmm,  royalist team versus one who dress up like a bunch of stripy nigels.  Neither, thanks.
  • Anyone or anything over Arsenal end of
  • Arsenal v Tottenham
    Man City v Man Utd
    Everton v Liverpool
    Newcastle v Sunderland - only because of the play off final - nothing against the mags
    Southampton v Portsmouth - too many hooligan fans
    Villa v Birmingham - see above
    Forest v Derby
    Rangers v Celtic - only just, don't care for either really, but have a few good friends who favour the huns.  
    Real v Barca - dislike both with intensity. 
  • Arsenal over Tottenham - Arsenal, cant abide Tottenham fans, self entitled shits.
    Man City over Man Utd - Cant stand either, Man United are the parody of a glory boys club, and City are the Chelsea moneybags of the north. I guess City just shade it over Utd.
    Everton over Liverpool -  Liverpool, Kloop is a breath of fresh air, and Everton are the John Major of football clubs, grey and boring as fuck...
    Newcastle over Sunderland - Sunderland 1998 and all that.
    Southampton over Portsmouth - Southampton, Portsmouth have the bell ringing bellend.
    Villa over Birmingham - Birmingham, used to sponsor games so went along.
    Forest over Derby - Forest - Clough.
    Rangers over Celtic- None its Scottish football and its all shiite.
    Real over Barca- Barca, cos I like the seaside.
  • A lot of you must know a totally different bunch of Arsenal/Tottenham fans than I do. Never watched clips of that gooner fan TV thing? :/     
  • Got no strong feelings either way concerning those clubs. My preference tends to be towards the underdog though or the one with the best football, most likeable players and manager etc

    e.g. when City were rubbish I really liked them and their fans for supporting them instead of Fergie's United, whereas now they are filthy rich and winning "everything" they're just another one of the monied giants.
  • Arsenal over Tottenham - COULD
    Man City over Man Utd - NOT
    Everton over Liverpool - GIVE
    Newcastle over Sunderland - A
    Southampton over Portsmouth - TOSS
    Villa over Birmingham - DITTO
    Forest over Derby - DITTO
    Rangers over Celtic - DITTO
    Real over Barca - Barcelona purely because of Franco.  Essentially it's anyone over Franco's favourites.

    Have you read the Sid Lowe book about the rivalry between Real and Barca? Busts a few myths on the Franco's favourites bit and was a good read.

    Thanks, I'll look it up.  There is no argument, however, that Franco's regime tried to deny the Catalans the use of their own language and suppressed their culture.

    You nearly got me there Uboat but then I read Celtic & Champions League Final in the same sentence. Love your sense of humor and you got a deserved lol for it.
