Noel Gallagher has hit back at Liam calling him a "sad fuck" with a pretty perfect response

Ahh, brotherly love. There’s nothing in the world quite like it.

Spending hours sitting up late at night playing FIFA together. Kicking a ball around in the back garden pretending to be your footballing heroes. Calling them a “sad fuck” to an audience of two million people. These are the sorts of memories you never forget.

Noel and Liam Gallagher are firmly cemented as Britain’s second favourite brothers (behind the Chuckles, obviously), so it’s been hard for us all to see them hate each other’s guts quite as much as they have for nearly a decade.

As you might’ve seen, Liam – a man who seems to get endless joy from publicly calling his brother a potato – went on a bit of a Twitter tirade in the wake of the One Love Manchester event, at which he performed sans Noel, and with Chris Martin drafted in as a not exactly like-for-like replacement.

Liam claims that Noel refused to join him for Ariana Grande’s benefit gig, at which more than £2 million was raised for British Red Cross in three hours, but it’s now emerged that Liam might not have been telling the whole truth. Actually, he might’ve made the whole thing up entirely.

Noel has claimed that he was never invited to perform, and also that he had family commitments that he couldn’t have got out of anyway – but he did do something else on the down low to help out the victims of the attack.

He reportedly handed over all royalties for ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ to the victims’ families in secret – and before the concert even took place.


Back in the good old days

Radio X DJ Gordon Smart revealed: “I’ve seen some unpleasant headlines about Noel and why he never played the gig in Manchester at the weekend.

“It’s only right to point out, and I don’t think this is public knowledge because I’m sure he would never mentioned it, but I found out today that as soon as ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ started to appear spontaneously at the vigils, he made sure all the royalties went to the families. That was before any gig was mentioned.”

So we can now assume that Liam will make a full public apology to his brother, right? It’s all a big misunderstanding that can be sorted out with a cup of tea and a stern talking to from Mama Gallagher.

Or, alternative theory: Liam will call Noel a “sad sack turnip fuckhead” and the dream of an Oasis reunion will sink a little further in its grave.

We’ll let you decide which is more likely.
