We wrote earlier today about TalkSport listing the ‘passion’ and ‘ferocity’ of derby games around the world which put the Glasgow Derby as only 12th on the table.
More importantly, they put the Manchester Derby at second on the list of the most ferocious derbies in the world just behind Boca Juniors vs River Plate. Yes, you read that correctly!
So imagine our surprise when Henry Winter’s posted this embarrassing photo below from outside the second most passionate derby in the world.
A half and half scarf.

£10! What a bargain.
This clearly shows the ludicrous nature of the TalkSport derby rundown who wouldn’t understand passion if it hit them in the face.
If they want to rank derbies in terms of the sort of money spent on the on-field talent then, of course the Manchester Derby would be up there. But to demote the Glasgow Derby to outside the top ten just because whoever made the list doesn’t like Celtic winning all the time is a bit pathetic.
