Choon Choosday: Gerry and The Pacemakers – You’ll Never Walk Alone

15 April, 2014

Exactly 25 years ago today, Liverpool and Nottingham Forest fans travelled to Sheffield to watch their teams play an FA Cup Semi-Final. The game kicked off at 3.00pm. At 3.06pm it became clear there was a crush at the Leppings Lane end and the game was abandoned. 96 of those Liverpool fans never went home.

I’ve written about the horrific, tragic, avoidable events of 15th April 1989 before. But today is not the time to revisit that anger. Two weeks ago the inquest into those 96 deaths was reopened. We hope that when it reaches its conclusion some time next year, the whole truth will finally have been told and those responsible, those who failed the fans on the day, those whose actions and inactions resulted in 96 lives being lost, will be held accountable. We keep believing there will one day be Justice For The 96.

Today, we remember and we mourn. #JFT96 #YNWA

  1. I still remember watching the nightmare unfold on TV, while I doubt they will ever receive true justice we can but hope

    • Let’s hope so. I don’t think we will see convictions but if the truth is told and blame is apportioned I think most people will be satisfied
