I take umbrage to your remark "Always the victims, never your fault !!" There was 96 victims and it wasn't their fault.

there was also over 60 dead at the Heysel Stadium, strange that this has somehow been swept away and forgotten about, or don't they deserve to be remembered as well. it wasn't their fault either.

Mr Cain sir !
My remarks were made as a result of Liverpool FC, the Families support group and everyone else connected with Liverpool football club, refusing to stand up and admit that had a section of the fans turned up well in time for kick-off and had fans who did not have tickets for the game had stayed away, instead of trying to force their way in and this was raised by the coroner at the inquest, then perhaps the South Yorkshire Police might not have had to make the tragic decisions that they did.
Sadly we'll never know.
I am in no way deriding the seriousness of what can only be described as the most tragic day in Football, but i believe in order for full and true justice to be done, then an element of responsibility must be accepted by the above mentioned people.
As Mr Simper has also mentioned about Heysel, those that died there should also never be forgotten.
As neither should those at Bradford, or Ibrox.
I make no apologies for what i wrote, as i firmly believe, that no matter what mistakes or cover up's were commited by the authorities, individual actions from everyone that day had a bearing on what happened.
Then it's Trooper this, an Trooper that
And Trooper how's yer soul?

I won't make any other comment only to say that the truth will out and hopefully the police you seem to back, be they South Yorkshire or West Midlands will be shown to be a lying bunch of shits I think they are.

Mr Keller,

I find myself agreeing with you, it has now turned into a witch hunt against everyone other than Liverpool fans who remain blameless.
like I said no come backs against my Heysel comment as this isn't worthy of a mention, far be it to tarnish the name of Liverpool, I wonder how the Italian families are feeling and how no one has been brought to book for what happened there, where is their justice. who covered up that one.

"It is incongruous to attempt to draw a parallel between the two disasters, given that the cause of Heysel was hooliganism. However, if there was one common denominator, it concerned the inadequate crowd arrangements." - Alan Hansen
As you know prior to Heysel, hooliganism was called the English disease (not Liverpool disease). All teams in England had their own problems, this terrible disaster could have happened at any 1st division match, on any given Saturday throughout the season. Then came the bans this was not a knee-jerk reaction to a one-off night of mayhem. This – both the sanction and, it could be argued, the widespread loss of life – had been coming. Heysel was the disgraceful culmination of more than a decade of ugly incidents involving English supporters on their European travels: Tottenham Hotspur in Rotterdam in 1974 and 1983, Leeds United in Paris in 1975, Manchester United in St Etienne in 1977, the national team in Basle in 1981 and so on until the spiral of moronic violence reached its tragic conclusion – logical in one sense, crazy in all others – in Brussels.

Can I please have a say.
Can we please let Algy's response be an end to this. Mud slinging about our respective teams is banter mud slinging about the loss of life is distasteful.

Mr Kellogs Sir.

I have been struggling to get on the ARC lately but yes we did not bottle it in the end and at time of writing are the current Premier League champions. :D :D :D With regards to the empty seats it was a night match and not all season ticket holders live as close to the ground as me :) :) :) . Yes there were traffic problems some lunatic was threatening to jump off a bridge onto the Mancunian way which resulted in quite a lot of fans not getting to the ground before half time. Hopefully my PC problems are sorted now and I will be contributing to the ARC on my previous regular basis. :wink: :wink:

Another routine victory over the scousers City did not get out of 2nd gear I think that the best is yet to come from the blue half of Manchester :D :D :D . Gerrad got a load of well deserved abuse I don't believe he is the player he used to be, and in my honest opinion Liverfool will not finish in the top 4 despite the signing of super Mario. :lol: :lol: :lol: In other news the Etihad stadium is coming on fine and the matchday experience is quite an enjoyable time, another 3 points on Saturday against Stoke will make a good start to the defence of the title. :D :D :D
