*Shakes head* Everton again.

Recommended Posts

I'm always wary out talking about heysel as I wasnt there,but from what I've heard/seen ,that type of thing happened every single week at grounds up and down the country.

I remember someone saying the actual scale of the violence was no where near the levels of say the 85 semis.

I remember watching a documentary once where all the ultras ran down to the liverpool end and only a line of police stopped them

God knows what would have happened otherwise.

As others have said the reason all English clubs were banned was our well deserved reputation at the time..heysel was the inevitable outcome.

The really puzzling aspect is why england,by far the worst culprits,were not banned aswell.

Potential? I am enquiring into the services of several porn actresses to keep me company for the next month and potentially I am in there. 

I don’t believe you, unless you have a list and put “BREAKING NEWS” in the text.

The thing is as everyone who went through the 70s and 80s knows, even if you weren't someone who went looking for trouble, if it was going off, you fought because if you didn't you'd get fucked. I'm not saying it's right, it's just a reality. I didn't go looking for trouble back in those days, but ended up in the middle of loads of it and felt lucky to get out of it in 1 piece. It doesnt excuse what happened, but it was an inevitable consequence having inadequate segregation that it would go off. And the stadium tipped that from another 80s day out to a fatal situation.

100% correct.

Old man Dangerously maintains that if the Italians had stood their ground and fought the disaster would have been avoided. He went everywhere from the late 60s until the early 00s when he lost his passion for it. He's got some outrageous stories but isn't someone who went out for trouble, but always stood up for himself and his mates.

The thing back in those days, society was more openly violent. Where I grew up, it was the shadow of the ground really. My mates and I all lived along the L4, L5, L6 boundary. We'd never look for trouble day to day, we wanted to just get to each others houses and listen to music or be out somewhere playing football. But loads of lads just fucking liked fighting, especially in gangs and you either fought back or you got the fucking shit kicked out of you - although that sometimes happened anyway. There were loads of places you wouldn't go alone and not because you were avoiding getting beat up, but because you were avoiding taking a kicking alone h if you ran into the wrong crowd, they were going for you. At anfield you could find trouble if you wanted it, but avoid it just as easily. But I 100% guarantee the away fans didn't feel like that. And it was the same for us going away. There was the odd place you could go where not much happened, but that was the exception and not the rule.

Must be, look he's got numbers at this EXACT moment in time and everything-

 

 

Hahaha - fucking hell. “Is my understanding at this exact moment” meaning “that is how I’ve decided to make those non-commital numbers up and have no basis for any of this info. Please notice me”

My uncle was there for the game. Didn't take part in the violence but the stories he had were shocking. 

 

One that sticks in my mind was him saying he saw Juve fans going round the ground in cars hanging out the windows with machete's before the match. 

 

With how Liverpool fans were attacked in Rome the year before I could understand the mindset of some of them not prepared to take shit like that again. 

 

Unfortunately a crumbling stadium didn't help matters.

That Everton shirt is alright.

 

Hummel seem to make nicer kits than Nike are making for us right now.

Yeah. Doesn't take much though, does it?

No.....having a belly full of ale and eatibg half the menu from the lobster pot and then throwing up on a plain t-shirt and then designing that would be an improvement on Nike's shite.

If that kit was in red i'd be calling Nike an even bigger gang of cunts than i have already. Come on fellas that Hummel effort is shite, looks like it belongs in the championship.

Oh, how I feel so cheated! All these years on TLW and never once have we had such a detailed analysis of likelihood of transfers as seen here. All we ever got was a name thrown casually into the conversation.

 

@Paulie Dangerously hang your head in shame!
