Clearly the fans have learned nothing from history, and yes, while obviously Hillborough wasn't all the fault of the Liverpool fans like the police/government tried to suggest, but it's very hypocritical of Liverpool fans to seek justice for their own losses but then wash their hands of their own crimes.
Heysel - ban for English teams from UEFA competitions, manslaughter charges for fans, blame laid entirely on Liverpool fans in the immediate aftermath.
Hillsborough - Cover up, complete lies being spread about the incident via the Sun and other sources.
So how exactly is a Justice for the 96 campaign hypocritical?
Nearly half the dead could have been saved if it weren't for incompetance. Took 23 years for it to be concluded that no Liverpool fans were responsible for the deaths, and that the authorities attempted to conceal what had happened.
Wow bananas please shut up. You have no idea what you are talking about. The people who caused the murders at heysel were charged with manslaughter. What have the police who caused the deaths at Hillsborough got? They got away with while a major British news paper ( and I use the term loosely) covered up their vile lies for 23 years.
re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (Winning at home is overrated anyways)
I miss both too. Don't really see how anyone could hate either, they were both too funny, albeit for the wrong reasons. Just the complete opposite of each other as well. One acts as though Arsenal can win the Champions League each season. The other acts as though Arsenal are nothing but relegation fodder.
Why are you guys even bothering with Bananas. The guy loves to take shots at us no matter what. No point feeding him
As for Gunner and Stringer yeah they both need to come back. Gunner more than Stringer even though he did piss, me off in the start he grew on me in the end. Stringer was good when he wasn't trying to use any moment to bag on pool
You Liverpool fans are becoming a parody of yourselves. You guys try and act like Heysel never happened and then say those that bring it up are the villains. Maybe if you didn't continually try and play this victims and brush it under the carpet, then people wouldn't have to remind you of it. You go on about the Justice for the 96? But what about justice for the 39? You can't have your cake and eat it too.
Although the Juve fans didn't accept Liverpool fans apologies, they didn't brush it under the rug when it mattered.
My complaint about Heysel was the usage of the banner which I put on here seemingly mocking it.
Rush said everything that needed to be said in regards to the 96 compared to the 39.
Oh, and when I was at Wembley for the semi final and the final in 2009 for the F.A Cup, we had our fans bunking in with no tickets. It happens with all clubs.
