Old man is back !

Good day , dear fans of tennis. I must apologize to all of you, who have not seen recently articles about this wonderful sport. Recently one big tourney has ended and one old man showed to the world , how the things are right and precisely to be done 🙂

I have to admit that I watched almost all the games in the wonderful Australian Open 2017 tennis tournament. There was one game which directed the bets and the eyes of the professional critics in this sport. It was Nishikori vs. Federer. Here is the time mad space to tell, that I am a huge fan of Rafa Nadal, but the only one who stands next to him in grandeur and in the spot of the lights of the cameras is the Swiss Genius – Fed man 🙂 I do not know if there is any so complex player who can hit the ball that smart, that even referees lose their breath and attention. He is the big master of back hand with one arm and he is so damn concentrated. In the game with Nishkori he made things from other planet. I am watching tennis for nearly 30 year and cannot remember such incredible performance.

Yes, Roger is old. But you now the sentence of old and gold. Now he see how gold is he. The old man revealed all his potential, capacity and soldier spirit.. This 36 years old man, was moving like a 18 years old youngster, like this was his first tourney , he want to win and to gain attention of the public. Yes, he won his 18th title  from Grand Slam Competition and this is gorgeous. But the most important is the grace and the genius hits of the ball, he did all the games.

About the final, who ever dreamed of better one? The old friends and furious enemies on the court . Those two men are like two lions, who have that sports hatred and talent. They remind me a lot about Agassi and Sampras. In those competition true man and real friendships got born. There are moment in life, when you are waiting to see such suspense, show or even performance , that moment which you will share with your children and best friends. For that moment we love and die for watching tennis.

On the last place, I like to say special thanks to Mr. Federer. No one was thinking he will made to the final or even to win it. He showed that talent has no age motivation has heart and will for success is the main moment to keep winning and showing to the world, that if you are on the feet, stood up and focused, no power or top tennis players can stop you. His determination is motivating , not only for me, I guess for you and for all the fans around. One last word before it go. If you remember there was a slogan , when he was playing : “Shht , genius at work .. ”

 

 

Spanish fever, English classics

Good morning, dear punters. Yesterday night, there was a gorgeous game for the Spanish Cup ( Sevilla – Real Madrid). Real are unbeaten in 40 consecutive games, this is record for Spain( the previous one was held by Barcelona). The team from Madrid came back in the game after losing with 3-1 till the 78 minute. Great match, even Real were not playing with many of their stars : James, Ronaldo.

Ronaldo had played previously in the team with most titles in UK – Manchester United. They made a good win against Hull City and are in a good winning streak. Is it because of the smart trainer – Jose Mou , is it because of the magician -Ibrahimovic, or just because the whole team is playing good, it could be many reasons. ON Sunday United are facing one very strong team, the brave boys of Jurgen Klopp. This will definitely will be a great clash. But we are not also fans, but bettors, lets concentrate on the both event which are about to gain much attention and great sum of bets:

  1. Manchester United – Liverpool : this is definitely a “high voltage” derby.  The pressure will be bigger on the shoulders of Klopp’s players( LIverpool lost from Southampton and are out from the tourney for the FA Cup). “Red devils” will not lose this game, if they take the win , they can jump up in top 4, also depending from the results of their local rivals and Arsenal. At first I was about to advise you to take correct score 1-1 or 1-0 for United. Over 2,5 goals options seems quite hard to happen. I will give you tips are per the odds for yellow cards in bet365 ( yellow card before 27th minute- yes @ 1,83 , United and Liverpool yellow cards, both teams over 2,5 : 1,83 and 1.9 ). On derbies like these, the most normal things will be the great number of yellow cards.
  2. Sevilla – Real Madrid : as I said in the beginning of the article, we watched episode 1 now , later on Sunday will be episode 2, but Real will enter more prepared in this game. Double chance X2 for Real and many goals, this is what appears to me as a first impression. “Los Blancos ” are playing in a killing counter-attacks style, which is something Zinedine Zidane learnt them best. Ronaldo will be playing on Sunday and there will be problems for Sevilla on Ramon Sanchez Piszjuan. Both teams are playing open and attractive football, so the live of over 10,5 corners in bet365 @ 2 odds, deserve your total attention and maximum stake, regarding your bankroll.

Tomorrow are also interesting games, but in Sunday there will be a huge attention and expectations, from fans, trainers and presidents of clubs. Also the “betting war” between punters and bookies is now opened. You can search the variety in different sports book, but I recommend you bet365 , tipbet, betfair and dafabet. Be good and be on the winning side of live ) See you very soon 🙂

 

Spaich – hero and saint

Good evening , dear friends. First of all I wish you Happy New Year.In 2017 , I wish you all to have the luck to make all your dreams come true, to win in live, love and sports, to be good and generous and never to forget heroes, who makes us proud to  stand and say : ” We are Bulgarians”.

What is the nature of one hero ? How a hero defines himself and what is the difference between him and the others? On my humble opinion heroes have hearts with power and energy that cure, heel or erase…. Heroes are like stars , who show the way and then just vanish in the haze or in the pure space of their beliefs and love..

When I was a small boy, my grandfather told me stories of faith , belief and great men. Those men, heroes and saints were : Vasil Levski, Georgi Asparuhov – Gundi and Dimitur Spisarevski – Spaich. The last one is the pilot and hero, which marvelous sacrifice and military braveness are studied all around the world. It is not a  man , it is a super hero, who risked his life in order to safe the sky of Sofia , clear from bombs and enemy planes….

You have heard a lot about Spaich, this was the short name of this handsome warrior , given by his friends. After you read a lot about him , you find similarities with the life of Gundi:

  1. Both were total patriots – willing only the good times of Bulgaria. People who make everyone follow them just with a smile.
  2. Spaich and Gundi played for our favorite team Levski Sofia .
  3. Tall, handsome men – they were like movie stars. All women felt in love with them.
  4. As people with hearts of fire both died in accidents, Spisarevski risking and losing his life , hitting B24 fortress plane, Gundi and Kotkov died in the Alfa Romeo , near Vitinya. The fire was their life and they found death in it.
  5. Genius die young –  Spaich at the age of 27 , Gundi at the age of 28. How many of you can imagine what national diamonds and treasures we could have , if they could live at least 20 years more ? Unfortunately God takes his angels first 🙁
  6. Love of the people, not only in Bulgaria – survived American pilots went to the mother of Dimitur Spisarevski to give all their medallions and orders, just to show their great respect to this demon in the sky. Also in many military books, the attack of Spaich is written and learnt till nowadays. On the funeral of Gundi there were many people and teams from abroad,even now players of his time start to cry while they whisper his name.
  7. Graves covered with flowers – when you have time, go  in the central Sofia cemetery and see what people love means. Those two saints will never be forgotten by us, proud Bulgarians , fans of Levski and patriots.

Capitain Dimiturs Spisarevki is a rare person, it is like a candle in the wind, it is like a lake across the desert. He did all he could, because he kept in his eyes and heart the love for Bulgaria, the love for his countrymen , the love for the sky and the love for freedom and independence. He was not just a pilot, hero or marvelous saint, he is that light in the darkness of these bad times we live in. His heroic deed has come to show us , what people are we, we are and have to be always proud of our nationality – Bulgarians. So , dear captain Spisarevski ,I hope you are know with the angel smile – Gundi , somewhere watching and praying for better times for our country and for our beloved team – Fc Levski Sofia. In a conclusion, dear all my advise is never to forget our heroes , without them our lives and our mission on this planet , would be meaningless.

Who is prepared?

Good day , dear friends. We are in a several hours distance from the new 2017 year. This will be the last post in this blog for the back going 2016. I know that most of you are not in a mood for sports and betting , but there are matches in England , which deserve our attention.

One of this games will be a derby . A derby which will give answers to many questions. A derby which tends to be a great spectacle for the fans of both teams. Also it will be a great clash between two great managers – Klopp and Guardiola.

All you know now, that today tips will be about Liverpool- Manchester City. I will try to stay and keep strict to the bookies, which give best odds and have huge number of markets for this derby. Let me show you now, which outcomes deserve your stakes :

  1. Over 2,5 goals in the game – both teams are high scoring and like the attractive and open football. For some of you over 3,25 goals in the game will also have value.
  2. Over 10,5 corners – this is a very favorite market of mine(also as er bet365, they do have the best variety of corner markets). The odds for this outcome is 1,83
  3. Both teams to score – yes: odds is 1,5 with a trend to go down at a level of 1.42 before the game starts.
  4. Over 4,5 cards in the game – bet365 give 1,83 odds. In derbies like this even 5,5 line for cards is a reasonable line.
  5. Players ( goalscorers) – in game like this, the great players show their potential with assists and important goals. Any time Goals scorers – Firmino – 2,62 and Aguero – 2,05.
  6. Correct score in the game – on my humble opinion , there will be 4 goals in the game. Final result will be 3-1 for Liverpool or 2-2. The main point is who will achieve to get closer to the leader in the table – Chelsea.

In a conclusion, we will be expecting a great game. Fans of both teams, will be happy if one of them will be the winner at the end. Fans of Chelsea will be happy from a draw result. Bettors and bookmakers will be happy and impatient to show their skills pre-match and in-play of the game. I will be happy to help you with all I can. Happy New Year and many winnings on the way.

Who are we ?

Who we are ?

We are young and free. We are old and rebellious. We are ultras, we are the ones that make the scenes, the art, the pyro effects and the noise on the stand.
We are the spirit, are you the spirit?
Ultras is not just a movement, ultras is the state of mind. It is the state of soul, not to be immortal, but always to stand up for your team and four your beliefs.
We support different teams and different colors , but all we are fighting for is our faith. Faith that is driven by passion and became stronger and stronger after every derby and after every goal of our favorite team.
Ultras are not criminals, ultras are rebels . Rebels for freedom:
1. Freedom of expression.
 2.  Freedom of not being pictured by cameras all around the stadium and treated like junk.
3. Freedom of spirit ….
4. Freedom of all faces to be on the light, not wearing masks….
5. Freedom of football and fan culture – football is for the people , not for the betting mafia.
We can be everywhere and can come from  nowhere. We are shadows and we are light. We are fighters and we are protectors. We protect our team, our country and our spirit.
If there are no ultras, what football will look like?
Look what is happening one every protest in every country . Who is the first  rows? Who stands up and did not go back, not a single step backward?
This is not propaganda, this is the spirit of free  and independent people. Because being Ultra fan is kind of responsibility.
Responsibility to fight in all that you believe in and to fight with a loud voice and eyes , who never blink …..
Ultras means to go into hell for your friends, to chase your enemies and to keep the flag of your team and dignity always flying high .
Freedom is ultras ,ultras is the way to infinity of belief, faith and fearless love….

Winner takes it all

Good day , dear fellows. It is sunny in my country and birds are singing to my window. Am I inspired? Yes, I can definitely say , I am . Today is Tuesday and there are many interesting games from Champions League to be played.

As I have been checking the stats and the games, I get focused on two of them. My previous article was a total crash , but today I promise, I will give my best to you – my readers and fans. The good prediction is a mixture of experience, good point of view as a bettor, trader and punter , probably you have to put some spice as a fan , as well.

I do not want to lose your time and to speak something , just in order to make this post bigger. Let’s see what are the valuable bets and pics for tonight shows :

  1. CSKA Moscow – Tottenham : it is always difficult for any team to play as a visitor in Russia. especially in Moscow.  ” The spurs ” have problems with many injured players ( Dembele, Dier, Sissoko and Hary Kane). CSKA are not playing as good as the fans want from them. From first sight this game seem a “classic ” draw result game ( 3,3 as per bet365.com). Also both teams to score is an odd with a value ( 1,8 per the same bookmaker). As well we can expect many corners here : over 9,5 stands with 1,83 ( decimal odds ,again bet365 is the source. Let’s take a look at William Hill odds for 1st home and away goals scorers : Alan Dzagoev and Dele Alli – both at 6 . Not on the last place over 3,5 cards in the game as per bet365.com  is 1,67 ( not a bad odds to take).  My last prognosis for this event is half time/full time – draw/draw ( 5 decimal odds ).

     2.Borussia Dortmund – Real Madrid : a dream derby about to come.  A classical clash between two of the best team in the world at the moment. Both team will play open football and trying to lose this game of great importance. All the lines for goals from over 2,5 till over 4 should be taken, no matter where and with which bookie. In their last games , Dortmund are scoring so much goals as this is the easiest thing to do in the World. Final result like 2-2 or 3-3 will be fair enough for the both grands . Let’s see the corners lines, there should be many corners as well : over 9,5 corners in the game – 1,72 all you know as per bet365.com, you can take this bet with a 100 % of your stake ( I am totally confident about this prediction). Corners for the teas ( total ones ) : Dortmund – over 5,5 corners – at 2 and Real Madrid over 4,5 corners – 1,9 . Also it is a value tip to take the over 1,5 goals in the first half, odds are dropping( by now it is 2,2 at bet365.com). At William Hill there is a very interesting market : Christiano Ronaldo and Pierre – Emerick Aubameyang to score at any time – 4 .

This was all from me by now. I am eager to watch the games and to see how many from my prediction will come winners at the end of the matches. Winner takes it all, no only money and value in points and money, but also value in wisdom and betting and social experience. Be good and be innovative .. See you very soon

 

 

 

One totally crazy game…

Good day  , dear friends. Yesterday night we saw several nice games from the Champions League elimination round, one phase before the true games for entering the Group stage. One of them was the match between Crvena Zvezda – Ludogoretz. A game that had everything in it.

First game in Razgrad ended 2-2 and no one convinced the visiting squad to be the winner after the second game, which has been expected to be played against 50 000 fanatic fans of the Serbian team. Mala Marakana expected this game for a days now. Even some of the home team Ultras went in front of the hotel of the Bulgarians and flamed piro effect, which was very cowardice and mousy thing to do. They wanted to scared the “eagles”, but …..

I am actually fan of Levski Sofia, this is my team and this is where my heart belongs to. Levski are in crisis, not capable to overcome Maribor from Slovenia after two draw games. But we are here today to speak about Ludogoretz. I am not quite sure how many people have believed in a miracle in Serbia to happen last night. The results from previous game had put Serbians as favorite, because of their crazy and devoted fans. If you want to pass to the next level , you will be needing a result like 3-3 or to win by a goal difference. No Bulgarian team has been achieved this in the previous match-ups in such phases in Euro Football Competitions. But traditions are always to be broken in some way and in some time ….

Most of us, you, me , fans, people who regularly visit the stadiums, they are there for the game to see passion, suspense and many goals. All of you perfectly know what is the feeling , when your favorite teams scores, scores and early opener and you start to scream and sing and all the crowd is totally mad, full delirium… This is is what happened yesterday night, Zvezda scored the first goal, and this was it… Vlado Stoyanov made a mistake after the long shot, but he is human. I respect that man a lot, he saved a penalty from Ronaldo , not only for his team- Ludogoretz , but also in friendly game we played and we had won against Portugal , earlier this year. He is not just a goal keeper, he is a hero and great motivator. He had no chance to save the penalty for the equalizer 2-2 at the beginning of the second half, but he did many brilliant saves ever after.

Bulgarian team, played the game in the best technical and pragmatical way. The players of  Ludogoretz waited patiently to hit the opponent in fast and killing counter-attacks. This was how the 2 goals in the extra time were scored. There is one man  , who made the miracle a fact and a story to tell in the upcoming months. He is a Brazilain and his name is Wanderson. He scored 3 goals and killed the intrigue in extra time. He is very fast and I thin many good games, and many goals are up front to come…

I have to say good words for Zvezda players , they also played good game. It is one of the best games,   I have seen recently. We are proud of you Bulgrian heroes, not because you are passing the next round, it is because of the critics , you had. All which did not believe in the final win, are not very happy and dream big, maybe we will see againn Real Madrid or Barcelona in Sofia, only Fortune can tell us.

 

 

 

 

Three fast picks

Hello, dear friends. It is nice to have you here. All the last games in the group stages of Champions league are not finished for the 2015 and only few games left in the Europa League to be played today. There will be interesting games, even most of the qualifiers ahead are well-known.

The interesting and thrilling thing about making a prognosis is the info or inner feeling you have about the game and the atmosphere on the stadium, that will be. Most of the times, fans and most keen ones  or even the ones who came for fun are the 12th player, who inspires most the other 11 on the field.

I have prepared you 3 games as you have seen and realized bu the heading of this post. I think that in these games there will be a lot of goals and corners. Also I will emphasize on my favorite market in my proud betting partner and odds provider  William Hill – it is ” race to 2 goals “and “race to 3 goals” markets. Without goal, football would have been just a humble game and would not have gained this immense interest and popularity. Let’s go straight to the main point :

  1. DortmundPAOK : At Signal Iduna Arena it is always pretty hard for the visiting team. PAOK will be missing they star- Dimitar Berbatov , who is injured and probably has problems with manager and president of the team. Home squad has a big advantage and this is their mad public , the fans who are among the best in the world. Let’s see the markets, which deserve to be backed at William Hill – Dortmund to score in both halves , yes – 1,6 ; Dortmund total goals – over 2,5 and over 3.5 –  1,7 and 2,87 ;match result and 4 or more goals in the game – Dortmund @ 2.15 ;first and second half over 1,5 goals – 2.05 and 1,57 and the last one Dortmund to win and over 2,5 goals in the game – 1.4
  2. NapoliLegia :  I am a great fan of Italian football for over 2o years . My favorite team is in crisis , but we are here to take value and to give you my predictions on the other Italian teams participating in this tournament. The first game between those 2 opponents ended with 2-0 for Napoli and a tremendous goal by Higuain. At San Paolo there will be a storm and thunder of goals and emotions. There is not doubt for all, that the home squad will have the win and will finish the stage with 6 consecutive wins. Let’s check the W.Hill’s traders what have prepared for us: race to 2 and race to 3 goals for Napoli – 1,16 and 2,60; Napoli to score in both halves, yes – 2.1; match result and 3 or more goals in the game , Napoli – 1,95 ; goal scorer markets ( Higuain anytime and 2 or more – 1,85 and 5, also for Insigne – anytime @ 2,05) ; Napoli over 1,5 and over 2,5 team total goals- 1.44 and 2.5 and the last one match handicap ( European handicap) -1 for Napoli – 2.15
  3. FiorentinaBelenenses :Paolo Sousa is a magician. He is leading the team in the right direction. Fans of “La Viola “are back on the stadium and singing from the first to the last team , supporting their team with passion as it was in the days when Batistuta played on the same pitch. Here are the prediction for this match :total match corners 10-12 @ 3,1; total Fiorentina corners over 6 – 1,75 ; race to 2 and race to 3 goals for Fiorentina – 1,36 and 2,2; total match cards 4-6 @ 2,1 and the last ones over 1,5 goals in first and second half – 2,75 and 2,05.

Wish you all good moment and huge wins with my predictions. If you still have not created account with William Hill, hurry up the games are coming and the odds are waiting to be bet and backed. See you soon and have a wonderful day 🙂

 

 

Ultras – way of living

As the blog is getting bigger and the themes are growing. In near future , I do plan to write more and have better and bigger content, dear visitor. This article will be about the most loyal fans in football, also known as “ultras“. This will be the first one from a sequel, which I guess will have more content that the one ” How I started betting”.

Actually football is nothing without the fans. Can you imagine what the game would have looked like, if there were no such fans at the stadium? If the crowd was not singing and waving banners from the very beginning of the game? Whate the atmosphere , would  have look like without the pyro effects and choreography ? It is all about the loyal fans. They are the ones , who always stand behind the backs of managers , players and presidents. They are devoted to one thing, their passion and eternal love. The love and total devotion to the team of their heart.

All the great things in live and world had been done because of love and passion. The “ultras” fans can be considered the builders and art creators of all good, unfortunately and some bad things on and outside the stadiums. But we will speak here, in this forum, in this blog and article about the positive sides of the ultra culture. The main thing that distinguishes ultras from the normal fan is the fire burning long ago great derbies or important matches are about to come . The most loyal fans want to help their club in everything, not counting efforts or time spent-this is called real love.

I will try to emphasize and explain my point of view and why I do think that without “ultras”  , football is lost. We all are captured by the magic of this game and the 22 magicians, who we applause and want to see them perform on 130  % of their abilities, as the fans do. Here are my points of view :

1. To sing for your team, even outside the stadium, even your beloved team had lost, even you had cried many times and had sacrificed many thing, but you are there to support.

2. To wave proudly the banner and the flag, with the colors you love  and dreamed about.

3. To stay always with a head up in the sky. Your team needs you , no matter what feeling do you have deep inside your heart.

4. To make as much noise as possible, this and thus you give your friends and the boys on the pitch , the support and power they deserve, in order to win and make you happy one more time.

5. The graffiti art of ultras. This is one of the most influential part of the game. I bet every single one of you, had seen many brilliant pictures and graffiti on the wall from unknown art. This is one of the things, the ultras do, they want to be always in favor of their team.

6. Behind every successive general and football team , there is a big army. This army is of fans, ultras and all the hearts that beat as one .Only one man is not enough to conquer the world.

7. You will recognize them by the fire in their eyes, by the fever in their voice ,by the trembling hands , when they want to go and sing in the stadium for their beloved team. They are ultras, and they are born this way.

8. Not on the last place I want t dedicate this article to Gabriele Sandri. Gabriele, sempre con noi!

The life of ultras is mentality, it is passion and it is kind of responsibility. Responsibility is to teach the young ones , yous daughters and sons how and why to love their favorite team. To be able to do it the same way , that your father told you and learnt you….

 

Great football derbies

It is very passionate and satisfactory to write about such a great theme. Football derbies is something unique, something of its own, something that has to be felt. When the years are passing, you analyze and see that this is not just a religion, this is something bigger that the fans, players , presidents of clubs and teams, it is an internal love and insomnia.

I will start with the insomnia. Most of the ultra fans, before such games of grandeur and glory, do not sleep for a week or even for a whole month. Can you imagine what power and energy it is ? You think how to make better choreography, how to sing more, which , what and how many numerous banners you will wave during the match? There are many questions and one determination and moving power – the ultimate and after every single derby, growing love to the team of your heart.

It is a theme that will have no end , this is just the first article. As you perfectly now on every continent, in every country , in every town or city there are derbies, clashes, rivalries . In future, I will do my best and to have a post on one of the most intense, dramatic and not-normal derbies from all around the world. I will just mention some , with the promise of mine that in the near future , there will be specific and detailed article about the most popular ones:

1. LazioRoma : this is the battle for the eternal city . Whole Rome is becoming like a boiling pot, days before the derby is coming. There are clashed among the ultras of both teams, also too many police forces are concentrated in the hot points in the capital of Italy.

2. PartizanCrvena Zvezda : the battle for Beograd. When these two opponents are playing , it is like a war. They also compete in basketball. In basketball halls , the football ultras usually support their teams, and some of the times the games got postponed, because of different reasons, as you can imagine and predict.

3. LevskiCska : this is the Bulgarian derby , which also gains and concentrates lots of energy and power in the capital of Bulgaria. One of the teams was created 34 years before the other. The other one was created by the communist party , and their color is red. The eternal fight between ” blue” and ” red” ideas is definitely seen , shown and performed here, on this stage. From 09 September 2015, the red team does not exist anymore, there are many teams with this name now. The one who is playing in BG premier league is Litex – Etropole.

4. Dinamo ZagrebHajduk Split : this is definitely the most intense and passionate derby of Croatia.Dinamo is the better team now, from 5 and more years. If you go to this marvelous country you can see graffiti of the two most powerful fractions of both rivalry teams : Bad Blud Boys and Torcida Split. When the derby is on its way, police forces are very careful, because there are many fights between the fans.

5. Boca JuniorsRiver Plate : this is something from another dimension. Because of the hot blood of Argentinians , there are people killed, when those opponents are playing. I remember a video, I saw in the net , in ” La Bonbonera” . The fans of Boca where singing, jumping and lightening torches  an hour or an hour and half before the start of the game. They are totally mad.

6. OlympiakosPanathiniakos : it is the battle for the capital of Greece -Athens. It is one of those games, which you should go and feel. I had e friend , who explained me in details what is to be on one or the other side , and what is total madness , and people devoted to their eternal and forever burning love for their local team.

7. Real MadridBarcelona: this is something immense . It started with a political ideas , and opponents where on the the total different positions. The team from the capital, the royal one, and on the other hand Barselona , who always wanted their freedom i.e they made a referendum to get excluded from the borders of Spain and wanted to create separate country – Catalunya.

8. Zenith St. PetersburgSpartak Moscow : it is something huge . It is a rivalry with 300 of years lasting. Saint Petersburg was the old capital of Russia . Here we have again the opposition of right and left ideas, the blues against the reds. It is one of the most fierce derbies in Eastern Europe.

9. FlamengoVasco da Gama : it is something that arranges the whole nations, also knows as the derby of the millions ( because both teams have the largest fan masses in Brazil). When we speak about South America , it is something beyond any one imagination.

10. BenficaSporting Lisboa : it is the derby of the capital of Portugal – Lisboa. Here there is a common thing as in South America : fans are making noise all the 90 minutes , before the games , and it is like you are in the middle of celebrating of Chineese New Year . It is amazing.

11. ArsenalTottenham , ChelseaManchester United , Manchester UnitedManchester City, LiverpoolEverton,  BirminghamAston Villa. Actually in UK there are plenty of derbies and it is great to what a games like this, not only in Premier League , but also in the lower divisions.

12. Borussia DortmundShalke 04 : it is the derby of Ruhr. Both teams are from that region, and have one of the most passionate, powerful and mad fans in Germany. I have to add here the rivalry between Dortmund and Bayern Munich. It is on Euroean stage and also on local German one. The team that can beat Bayern in every single game , no matter of the tournament is Borussia Dortmund( you all remember the semi-final game for DFB Pokal, when no one counted Dortmund that have power and mentality to go furhter).

13. Urawa Red DiamondsGamba Osaka : we move east to Japan. All I can see is that I am impressed by both teams and the behavior of their fans. When football and passion are going hand by hand, promises for great games and derbies appear on the horizon.

In a conclusion , I want to apologize to those of you , who don’t see their favorite team here . I had written some starting lines for the derbies, which I heard, read and have opinion about. If you have any further proposal , I will be glad to read it.

We are all slaves to one faith, one religion, one passion and one goal: our favorite team to win. But when the adorable team wins in the derby , this is the miracle of all miracles , this is the top of the world . It is indescribable , you just have to go to the game, sing with your friend , wave the banner, light up the torches and shout till you cannot speak , when the winning goal is scored.
