Thats very true, the U-20's play some good good football. I just never really liked the seniors.

id say a large part of people not appreciating soccer isnt to do with instant gratification ect but simply people love what they grew up with, i grew up playing rugby , not really grew up but played till last year at 17 now i need a shouler reco but i plan on playin by under 20's again
(it goes under 18 then under 20 btw) but anyway i watch rugby, my mates who grew up playing afl watch more afl. i actualy watch all three codes and most of my mates watch at least 2.

i dont like soccer for alot of reasons, really it isnt exiting, the diving ect really pisses me off, if someone does that in rugby they get put all over papers and tv for bein a little bitch. Also there isnt the same meaning for it, in league theres huge rivalries between NSW and QLD and in union NZ and Aus, wereas all the meaning is overseas in soccer and not relateable to me
plus finnaly its a lil girls sport

I'm probably being biased but based on trouble on and off the pitch in recent years the biggest rivalry in english football has been Villa Blues (Aston Villa and Birmingham City). Just because we're not competing for trophies it gets overlooked but both sets of supporters and even some of the players (Mellberg) really hated each other.

Other than that, in Britain Celtic Rangers is still pretty intense considering they've been playing each other 4-5 times a year for god knows how long.

Also Tottenham Vs Arsenal.

But as for Villa Vs Blues we all know who is obviously way better, Aston Villa.

Goes without saying.

West Ham - Millwall is pretty intense too.

Newcastle v Sunderland is a Huge rivalry but you have live in the area to get really how much it means. There are riots every time we play each other.

Going to watch England v USA now to watch us stuff the yanks lol.

Yeah the Firms a top film that gets overlooked due to the new hooligan films which don't stand the test of time half as well as the Firm does. Gary Oldmans quality as well.
