After years of estrangement, there may be a champagne supernova of light at the end of the tunnel for feuding brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher.
Swaggering 45-year-old frontman Liam has now reportedly forgiven Noel, and has even expressed his wishes for a much longed for Oasis reunion.
Tweeting a public message to his older brother, Liam said:
Earth to noel listen up rkid I hear your doing gigs where people can’t drink alcohol now that’s the BeZarist thing you’ve done yet I forgive you now let’s get the BIG O back together and stop fucking about the drinks are on me LG x

This proposed reconciliation comes mere days after Liam accused Noel of having cursed the England football team during the World Cup.
Just before the Sweden match, Noel had been booed by England fans who he had sworn at for chanting ‘it’s coming home.’
The Manc musician had reportedly snapped at the crowd during a gig in Scarborough and said:
Seriously though, it f***ing so isn’t.
Liam later lashed out at his brother’s pessimism, tweeting:
For all those plastics who said it wasn’t coming home they should be ashamed of them selves as you were LGx.
He wasn’t right they wasn’t right they put a curse on it it they should be shot.
The thought of going to the misserble [sic] little f*****’s gig and having to sit down listen to his bread heads and being I told you so ewwwww.
That’s right. Bring it all back now. Make it right for all of us, do it for the fans??????

Oasis fans cannot quite contain their delight, with many having given up hope the pair would ever patch things up.
One person tweeted:
That would be nice, and I actually care about Oasis, they were amazing! I miss them.
Another wise person accurately declared:
The kinda person who don’t want an oasis reunion are people who drink room temp cans of fosters.
Love this , let’s get it on ???? and bring back the big O

Of course, we have had our dreams of an Oasis reunion crushed before. Only last Christmas, it seemed like a festive miracle was upon us as Liam appeared to offer an olive branch via Twitter:
I wanna say Happy Xmas to team NG it’s been a great year thanks for everything looking forward to seeing you tomorrow AS YOU WERE LG x
He later clarified:
He’s already reached out. We’re all good again.
However, it later became apparent this was not the case at all. Within no time, Liam was back criticising Noel’s album and comparing he and his wife to ‘Fred and Rose West.’

The Gallaghers haven’t been on speaking terms since Oasis broke up back in 2009, after an altercation at the Rock En Seine festival in Paris which caused a gig to be cancelled.
The very next day, Noel broke Britpop loving hearts in Manchester and beyond when he released the following statement:
It is with some sadness and great relief…I quit Oasis tonight.
People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.

Just imagine – would set records if they toured… albeit they’d probably fall out again!!
— Graham Marchant (@gmarchy14) July 19, 2018
The question remains… will Noel take him up on that drink, or will he still be looking back in anger?
Hope at last!
