Reds End The Season With A Draw

Image
Liverpool picked up a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns in the final game of their Premier League season. With the league having ended on an average note, Jurgen Klopp will look to take his team to victory in the Europa League final on Wednesday night to secure Liverpool Champions League football next season.

A classy move by West Bromwich Albion was also on show as they installed 96 red seats at The Hawthorns with the names of those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster. #YNWA
Jordon Ibe's Goal Jordon Ibe netted his first Premier League goal for the Reds on Sunday afternoon and what a goal it was. Running from practically the halfway line the youngster set his sights on goal and with the West Brom defence backing off, worried to make an approach, Jordon kept his command weaving into the box and scoring the equaliser for Liverpool via a fantastic finish.

Ibe has clearly got talent but he's looked a little off the mark lately when he's featured and I honestly feel that …

The 25th Anniversary Of The Hillsborough Disaster

Image
Today marks the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough disaster, with the inquests on going I hope the families can finally get some peace and closure after one of the biggest cover ups in English history.
It could have been any club on that sunny afternoon in April 1989. Football fans should stand together when remembering the 96 fans who lost their lives that day. Nobody should attend a football match and never return home.
Justice for the 96. #YNWA #DBTS

Post On Behalf Of EAD Solicitors Looking For Hillsborough Witnesses

Image
I was contacted recently by a group of solicitors who were looking to reach people that were present at Hillsborough or were witnesses to the unfolding disaster. I clearly stated in my response to the solicitors that I did not reside in Liverpool but I did have followers/readers from the city and so I wanted to help them if I could. I've always felt it of utmost importance to oust the truth about Hillsborough, especially as somebody living in an area where a lot of people are STILL unaware of the real story and so if this helps in any way possible then fantastic.

If you feel as though you can help EAD with their enquiries or you know somebody that can then please do not hesitate to contact them. The following section of text is from EAD Solicitors


The Hillsborough Stadium Disaster is something that provokes strong emotions in the heart of most Merseyside citizens, if not the whole of the UK. However, it is an event that has yet to have a clear truth confined to the history books.   

Hillsborough 24 Years On

The TRUTH is finally out and justice WILL follow.
May the 96 Liverpool fans who tragically lost their lives at Hillsbrough rest in peace and may they never walk alone.
Always in our hearts & minds.

It's As Much About Respect As It Is About Football

On Sunday afternoon Liverpool welcome their fiercest rivals to Anfield. The two sides have met too many times to mention in their history and whilst the rivalry is something that cannot be compared to, on Sunday Anfield will appeal to everyone in the ground, just for a moment, to put that rivalry aside.

There's no point me hiding from the fact here on the blog the problems that may arise on Sunday, after all I've never hid anything and will always speak my mind. We all know that both sets of fans have a minority, a minority that for some bizarre reason are determined for the world to see how sick they are, how they have no sense of sympathy for the loss of football fans and players, effectively members of their own sporting family.

On Sunday there may well be some of the minority present but I know and I am confident that the majority will show the world that as football fans we can unite as one.

Both Alex Ferguson and Brendan Rodgers have appealed to their fans to be on thei…

THE TRUTH

Image
23 years in waiting, 23 years just to be told the truth. Today, Wednesday 12th September, finally, the truth was revealed.

The Hillsborough Independent Panel produced a report after tirelessly and forensically sifting through over 450,000 documents and what they found was simply shocking.

Most Liverpool fans know very well what happened that day, the real truth, but the wider world does not. For 23 years the families, survivors and anyone affiliated with Liverpool Football Club have had mud slung at them.

"A lie can travel halfway round the world before the truth has put it's shoes on." as they saying goes but in the face of adversity the likes of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, the Hillsborough Justice Campaign and Hope For Hillsborough NEVER gave up.

People never understood, why were they still fighting? "Move on" they said, well today shows you why.

It was known that the report would be harrowing, shocking and despite the hurt some of the revelations …

Hillsborough Debate & Rangers Friendly

Image
A landmark day in the fight for justice when this evening Hillsborough was debated in the house of commons. A truly moving and inspirational opening speech by Steve Rotherham was applauded by the house and families watching in the gallery.

The home secretary has promised to release the files without making any changes to them and handing them over to the panel and the families. These groups will then be able to decide whether information will be taken out, i.e. medical records etc that would be no benefit to the public.
It's been 22 years since that fateful day in April of 1989 and nobody has ever given up hope on finding out the truth.
MP's from all over the country stood up in the house of commons this evening and made it clear that they all wanted the same thing, for the families to finally step that little bit more closer to the truth and to justice.
Here's hoping that once the panel have sifted through the masses of new information, the report that is released will f…

Ian's actual match ticket for the Leppings Lane end...
For this year's Hillsborough anniversary i am proud to say that i have paired up with Ian from PassionatelyRED (@Ian_LFC) to make a blog post. At this surely emotional time i would like to thank Ian for bringing up this idea and helping me make a post which will hopefully reach a few people and help educate them about the disaster. Without further ado i shall hand you over to Ian...

It is an incredible twenty two years on but it still feels like yesterday to me.  I was one of the lucky ones; I survived the hell that was Hillsborough Disaster.  Meanwhile ninety six fellow football fans died on the Leppings Lane terrace.

I was there – you can read about that here PassionatelyRed – Still Hurting After all These Years . But the focus of this blog, on which Kirsty has kindly agreed to collaborate with me, is to continue the call for justice for the people lost and their families.

That nobody has been prosecuted for their failing…

Hillsborough: Never Forget.

Anfield covered in scarves, shirts and flowers...
Tomorrow marks the 21st anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. On April the 15th 1989, thousands of Liverpool supporters on a beautiful April afternoon made their way to Sheffield to watch their beloved football club play in the FA Cup semi final.
Nobody that morning when they set out to the game though could begin to imagine the horror that would unfold.
96 Liverpool fans lost their lives that day, 96 friends, 96 people who were a Mother, a Father, a Daughter, a Son, a Grandad, a Grandma, a Sister, a Brother, a Cousin, a Soul Mate, a Friend. 96 people went to a football match that day and never returned.
In the 21st century, a disaster so heartbreaking and so preventable is tragic. To make things worse, those 96 friends were not mourned respectfully or with decency. Families were not offered compassion, they were offered lies.
Still to this day, justice for the families and friends of those 96 has not been done.
I was not brought up in …
