    Get involved!

14 were convicted of manslaughter, which I don’t know if it exists in Civil law countries, and received sentences up to 5 years. The Belgian courts then increased it to 11.
The thing that amazes me is when they were drawn against Juve in IIRC 2008 their fans made a banner “Amizicata” (I think it means friendship)
Surely the word should be sorry?
At club level, Juventus has accepted Liverpool's approach to apologize. Unfortunately no one will ever give us those people's lives back. Perhaps the best thing is to remember the dead but put a stone on the hooligans. To me the word Liverpool will always remember Heysel.

"We deserve to win this"

code for

"We are expected to win this, and we're all terrified of that level of expectation and blowing it"
What makes them think they deserve to win this? Based on what, the fact that they DIDN'T win the league? And what if Spurs play their best game ever; run rings around the Dips for 90 minutes and win 3-0. Would they still be saying they deserved it? Apparently losing out to City again has scrambled their brain cells. Bus wrecking bastards. ... Go on Spurs.

They appear to think they deserved to win the league every season for the past thirty years as well. Just self-entitled I guess.
 
It will be interesting to see if the Media run with the 'destiny' 'redemption' 'deserve to win' narrative this time next year for us, if WE somehow managed/DARED to make a second consecutive Final...!!

...or would it be the usual "Poch STILL hasn't won anything/Spurs are still Spursy" soundbites??

Armchair fan. I fucking love armchairs.
Can someone point me in the direction of some stories that give us credit for another year of CL and being arguably the better team in this years final despite no signing for a year and a half?

All I seem to be able to find is speculation on Poch's future and puff pieces on a Liverpool side we nullified for 90% of the final.

26 Liverpool fans were charged with manslaughter.
14 were convicted.
7 were given prison sentences.
On appeal that 7 became 11.

Not one of those actually imprisoned served more than 12 months inside.

Hadn't visited F365 in absolutely ages.

Looked today and went to THE SPURS page....




THE SPURS PAGE.
I had a Twitter row with John Nicholsen (the self appointed, anti-trendy, rock'n'roll, norther-lyric "independent writer") because I dare to criticise his colleagues piece on the CL semifinals. A piece which the colleague had himself promoted on Twitter, a platform for comments. I suggested that writers were a part of the problem, because they were feeding the narratives of football, complicit in turning it from sports into theatre. Or more aptly, a TV drama show. Which he obviously denied, there was no-storytelling in football at all, oh no. I was just a troll, daring to question the ones priviledged enough to earn money from shaping opinions. Not in any way a customer, who makes his living with my clicks.

These people are pure poison, and F365 too. Never get my clicks. There are no better than the Sun.

You don't need to click the Spurs page, btw. Just take the main page after a Spurs win. Stories will only be about Eriksen wanting to leave, odds on Poch being sacked/signed by Madrid (after a loss/win) and bystories to mainstories about Liverpool, City or Utd .

Stop clicking those sites. Stop buying their services. Stop liking and RT on SoMe. Just stop it.
 
Spot the difference today in the BBC champions league page...It's all in the language used.

Forgotten matchweek one from the Champions League already? Here's a recap;

Ha ha that is awful

It's funny how different the 4 results are portrayed.

Saying Liverpool 'fell' almost makes it a noble defeat.

Why not "Liverpool threw away the chance of victory by conceding 2 goals against Napoli without scoring any goals themselves.... "

"Champions Liverpool humbled away to Napoli - the first defending Champions EVER to lose their next game in the competition"

I try not to watch Motd. full of arseholes. Shearer is a waste of oxygen who seems to have an axe to grind against certain clubs including spurs.
