Tyne Wear Derby for sure!!! Its surely not based on what the games are like its the aftermath that makes it the most fiercest derby in England!!!

Birmingham Vs Villa? Why would this be before any of the above teams? Birmingham are in the Championship. I've seen a better Derby with Dundee and Dundee UTD and thats bad lol.

Well as great as these derbies are only two of them could be classed in the top 10 when it comes to fiercest, thats roma/lazio and river/boca. but instead of all these british ones, you need to be looking towards eastern europe where wars and deaths regular occur from football. Also if you are going to include barca - real, then what about Southampton - Portsmouth haha.

Spurs vs Arsenal got ahead of Sunderland vs Newcastle! Madness! I think that they have left the biggest derby out of the entire list!

You are joking? You include Arsenal v Spurs, but not the Tyne-Wear derby? Seriously? Arsenal-Spurs games are often dull with little atmosphere.

Not a bad list, but too Euro-centric. Boca-River is obviously huge, but there are several other South American derbies that are way beyond the scale of, for instance, Spurs-Arsenal. Flamengo-Fluminense in Rio, Colo Colo-Universidad de Chile in Santiago, and two other huge derbies in Argentina: the Avellaneda Derby between Racing and Independiente, and the Rosario derby between Newell's Old Boys and and Rosario Central. You'll find way more passion and atmosphere at these games than at the Emirates, that's for sure.
