Snakes and Heroes



The Derby is so intense, so fierce, it is not surprising that there are tons of great stories in its history. There are brothers by birth, brothers by nationality, and brothers by team. There are those who have lived the Derby on the pitch and on the touchline, and then there are those who have lived both sides of the Milan divide. So many stories of both snakes and heroes.

The legendary brothers, one snake, one hero

So many stories to tell, but I feel like the pictures tell them best…

Hero father-figure, whining snake baby


Same country, big hero


Hero vs. Snake


Hated snake vs. Beloved hero


A hero being strangled by a snake turned... well Muntari


Monstrous snake vs. Eternal hero


Former snake turns biggest Derby hero by taking out a massive biscione


Discarded captains


Snake as a player...


...and Derby hero as a coach


Legendary snake vs. Fierce warrior hero


Fierce warrior coach hero


Many have gone from snake to hero, but there is one who has done much more than that…

Player hero


Scout hero


Coach hero


Lecherous traitor snake


Lecherous traitor snake coach with snake (who became a hero)


Lecherous traitor snake coach-turned PSG director and thief of Ibra and Silva


Lecherous traitor snake coach-turned thief and now hero director?
(or a snake in devil's clothing?)

Who will be the heroes on Sunday?


This post is inspired by the music of David Bowie’s “Heroes”
