    20 Years since the disaster happened.

    93 people died in a football stadium crush. My thoughts are with their families 20 years on

    It happened in the year i was born so i didn't know much about it. But if you read up on it, it was horrific. It really upset me. There were children there too. It should never have happened. Glad stadium layouts and security has changed since then. Shame it took something like that to happen though.

    A lot of people died. :cry:

    96 people died that day.

    A lot more people died afterwards because of that day, through suicide because they just couldn't cope with what happened.

    Such a tragedy and my thoughts go out to all those who lost someone close to them.

    Also my heart goes out to the people who were there that day and have struggled with day to day life since then.

    RIP

    So much misinformation out there about this disaster. Makes it all the more heartbreaking, that those families had to suffer injustice and lies.

    RIP 96. If I could have got to the memorial I would have done. The Town Hall silence was deafening.

    How many times I've cried for you all...

    In fairness to them: -

    Following comments from Sheffield Attercliffe MP, Clive Betts, Sheffield Wednesday Football Club would like to stress that the club is continuing to work closely with the Hillsborough Family Support Group and Liverpool Football Club to coordinate memorials for the disaster which unfolded on April 15, 1989.

    A permanent memorial dedicated to the 96 people who lost their lives exists at Hillsborough Stadium, adjacent to the gates on Parkside Road, which can be accessed by the public 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A further permanent memorial is in place on Leppings Lane near the stadium in addition to the memorial garden at Hillsborough Park.

    Sheffield Wednesday has not been approached by the Hillsborough Family Support Group or Liverpool FC regarding an additional memorial. However, the club is committed to working with the parties representing the families of the victims on tributes to the 96 people who lost their lives on April 15, 1989



    A small memorial is better than no memorial at all and, as a Liverpool supporter through and through and one who loosely knows people that died through family and friends, I'm not going to complain about that.

    I can complain about the police, and the lack of justice, but at least there is SOME sort of memorial, rather than none at all.
