Definitely a black mark on our history, one that many of us modern fans would like forget as it precedes the younger generation of fans.

But it is part of the club's history and as a collective group, respect has to be paid. Unfortunately some cultures still embrace the violence which is associated with past days of European Football. Hoping that Russia is able to get away from that trend for the World Cup, but after the Kiev incidents I believe not


For the most part, I confess to watching LFC in the eighties but in honest truth I didn't develop this love for the club until 2003 when I started backpacking and meeting other fans from Europe. Really started taking an interest in it at that point, attending televised matches at the pubs and even checking out other sports like hurling, Gaelic football, Rugby (got to see the All-Blacks vs Canada in Melbourne in 2003)

Playing in backpacker leagues with lads of serious quality. Sydney had a decent Sunday league which finished up with a dinner and cheap pints afterwards at Scruffy McGuires (on....Liverpool St).

Point is, for me I have always associated the game with the social culture in the background as some of the bonds of playing as youth and senior football can last lifetimes

I’m not sure what to say, I I said nothing, as always fans of football should go to a game and return home....

Sadly grounds like Hysen were a disaster waiting to happen, like Hillsborough several years later
