    RIP to those who lost there lives :( But please no hotlinking of images.

    Was 6 at the time, only thing I can remember is seeing the footage of all the flowers on the news at Anfield, glad really I wouldn't want to of been watching the match on tv.

    Makes me sick when "other" fans joke about it, nobody deserves to die when they go to watch a football match.

    RIP to the 96

    Ah that's why I saw ' '96 ' in his post and got confused. 96 died in 1985. *shakes head* :o

    I was nearly 16 and I remember my mates dad was trying to get us all tickets to the match, unfortunately he could only get one and went on his own, I can remember watching it unfold on the telly thinking "**** it could've been me" (it wasn't until after he came we realised his ticket wasn't for the Leppings Lane end).

    Can't imagine what it could do to you mentally when being involved in something like that.

    It was 1989.

    22 years on and still nobody has been held accountable. Hopefully that will soon change.

    I remember it well. I was listening to it on the radio in my dads car when the commentator said somethings not right and said that a little blonde boy was being helped over the railings.

    My folks wouldn't let me go to anfield even though a Lad I knew from school had died. We went anyway and Kenny was there being interviewed. When I got back home it was on the news and we were in the background.

    RIP Kev
