Could the long longed-for Oasis reunion finally be nigh? Fans are hoping so after Liam asked Noel to reform the band.

The younger Gallagher brother took to Twitter to both goad and cajole his older sibling in the way that only a younger sibling can.

Noel is reportedly set to perform at several dry venues and this was a source of great mirth for Liam.

He tweeted: ”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 f****** about the drinks are on me LG x”.

Fans are excited about the "let's get the BIG O back together" but also cautious as it's Liam Gallagher and it's never quite clear whether he's being serious or not.

However, he did follow up with a "Cmon", which would suggest he's running with the idea.

Noel quit the band in 2009 stating, "It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that 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.”

Earlier this year Noel spoke to the Sunday Independent about why he quit.

“I had had it. I sat in the car for five minutes. There was silence until my security guard’s walkie-talkie was crackling and he said, ‘Are we staying or going?’ And I said, ‘We’re going.’ Once I had said those words, I thought , ‘That’s it’. But , you know, I felt I had done enough. I felt that I, personally, had done enough. I felt that this was just going to go around in circles, forever," he said.

"It is easy to sit there and pick up the cheque, travel in separate aeroplanes, separate dressing rooms, go onstage at opposite sides of the venue, and do the gig. 90pc of those big bands do it. U2 don’t do it because they are big f***ing mates.”

He said he never fought with Liam, but that LIam was "fighting with himself".

"Right now, he is picking a fight with himself somewhere. I don’t suffer fools in any f***ing sense at all, but I suffered him more than maybe I should have done. I felt maybe, looking back on it, that the stadium rock thing wasn’t me any more. At the time, it wasn’t a musical decision. It was literally a case of I can’t bear the fighting and the shouting and the firing people for no reason.”

Speaking about Liam's comments about his appearance at the We Are Manchester benefit in September, he added, “I will say this — and this is all I will say about it,” Noel says, “I don’t think that he [Liam] is well. I think it says more about him than it does about anything else. I honestly don’t think he is well.”
