This is a thread in remembrance of those football supporters,
as innocent as the rest of us, who lost their lives having done
nothing but attend a football match to support their team.

If you have nothing respectful to say, keep silent and show your class.

April 15th, 1989 was one of the worst days in the history of football.
Football fans went to watch a football match.
I (along with millions) watched in horror as events unfolded,
scenes which i hope never to see again.

From just 10yrs old to 67yrs old,
96 men, women and children never returned home that day.

In Memory of those who lost their lives at Hillsborough.

Posted on behalf of Haggler, who's away on holiday.

Hillsborough Tragedy 20 Years On: Simon Ellis-Jones Recalls The Day He Survived Stadium Tragedy | UK News | Sky News

I remember watching this unfold on the tv and crying watching it . I got thrown off red cafe for calling a fan there a clown for making light of this while complaining about munich chants .

Imagine the horror of going to a game of football with your dad and that being the last time you see him alive --or being a father watching his sons die .

I hope that all silences will be observed perfectly at every ground .

RIP the 96

To the hypersensitve people on this forum: I will state my opinion as it pleases me.

Sal, I will return your favour in kind.

Last night, I said a prayer for the vicitims of this tragedy and their loved ones. I also included the dearly departed of other tragedies and accidents.

I think i have actively done more than just to leave a generic remark on a site.

My point and hope is that such accidents and tragedies such as Hillbrough, Heysel and the Munich air disaster are so horrific that they should transcend all football rivalries and I truly hope that the respect shown to those who lost their lives at Hillsbrough, will be noted by our rivals and returned in kind and not replied by disrespectful songs and chants.

I remember reading the survivors account of stories and frankly i shed a tear, it feels the same as like i was reading the munich incident infact when i was reading that, it didnt for once occur to me that they were liverpool fans. What i saw from the pics are all human beings regardless of age whose lives were being taken away drastically while they were doing something they love the most - watching their lovable team and football. And how could it have gone wrong when it was suppose to be something right they did. It could easily be you, me or our relatives, when tragedy struck, we wouldnt know.

RIP to all these 96 victims..My deepest condolences to the victims family...what happened to them will never be forgotten.

United fans show they are a cut above, showing nothing but respect to the departed and this view is echoed throughout the forum. Anyone who jokes about something like this either hasn't suffered loss and/or needs their head examined and it really irritates me when some fans think it something to be mocked and derided.

RIP 96 innocent fans who lost their lives in such tragic circumstances.

We all enjoy football rivalries, and Liverpool may not be our favourite team, but that's the furthest it goes. At the end of the day, football is only a game. There are far more important things, even though we all forget that at some point.

RIP to everyone, and my best wishes go to their families.

very tragic event that needlessly happened, as much as we despise liverpool i think moments like that puts rivalries aside and human nature steps in and we think about he tragic loss of live on that fateful day.

RIP to them and i hope one day they do get justice for the 96, and that horrid little man who was editor of the sun and let that article be printed, well i hope he is haunted every night by the faces of those who sadly were lost, still cant believe the bbc hired him
