Wasn't sure where to put this but...

Great to see the Manics pay such a fitting and timely tribute to the 96 on their new album.

Resistance is Futile, the 13th album by the Manics

Lyrics:

As I wake to a sunset
The light dances on the Mersey
And I think of the 96
As the tears fall down on me
And there is courage
There is pride
You can see it in your eyes
Fight for justice fight for life
There are angel in these skies

As the night falls around me
I see joy and devotion
These times will never leave
Like the rain on the ocean
There is dignity and pride
There is poetry and life
There are ghosts within these stones
There's defiance in these bones

And all the hatred they tried to throw at you
But you stayed so strong
Yeah all the hatred it never was the truth
So keep keeping on
This is forever
We'll never leave you now
This is forever
We'll never leave you now

   

It's true to say that if Shankly had told us to invade Poland we'd be queuing up 10 deep all the way from Anfield to the Pier Head.

The subtext of this song
I've thought about it for so long
But it's really not the sort of thing
That people want to hear us sing
The context of this song
Well I could go on and on
But it's still unfashionable
To believe in principles

South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night
South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night

The reason for this song
Well maybe it's a pointless one
But thank you Jimmy McGovern
For reminding me of what lives on
The ending for this song
Well I haven't really thought of one
There's nothing I could ever say
That could really take the pain away

South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night
South South Yorkshire - mass murderer
How can you sleep at night, sleep at night

There is a large ‘Don’t Buy the Sun’ banner behind the goal on the televised FA Cup Dulwich Hamlet v Carlisle game tonight.

Great to see, a small club with a lot of history and community oriented, left leaning activism.

Understand your pain.  Today has been difficult.

It's about time this Hillsborough forum was opened up again to posters.  Fully appreciate why it was closed down before.  But we all recognise that, with the emphasis on supporting people's mental health issues, that it's important to be able to talk about things.

I don't know much about these - though they may be of some help or assistance, just someone to talk to? Just a heads-up.

I'm an Arsenal fan with no allegiances to LFC - but I've been moved to sign up to this forum today to show some solidarity with the fans and families of fans of LFC.

Its hard to express what I really feel - shame is the main feeling. I live in a society where I've allowed this to happen so I feel as much to blame as anyone for the truth not being heard earlier. I hope you can understand but you see the lies were convenient - they fitted and they were easy to swallow. Even as I stood for the minutes silence for the 96 at the Emirates last year I was only really honouring the dead on a human level - even then I was fairly sure of the version of reality that I'd decided upon.

This week has been shocking for me only on the realisation that I've got it wrong for so many years. I'd always known that there were lots of factors at play but having been to so many games in that era I'd just assumed.......but it was wrong.

If I'm this upset I don't know how those of you directly affected can be coping right now. If my changed reality is worth anything to you then here it is - use it and take it for what you can. I and anyone I've spoken to this week am shocked, stunned and absolutely behind the fans and their families. The truth won't be forgotten.  :'(

Good luck with the next steps and I hope you can find something positive to take forwards and find some normality after this.

RIP the 96 and peace for their loved ones.

Fellow Arsenal fan and I agree. It shows how dangerous a government trying to destroy a group of people's lives can be. Many believed in the lies, because they came from a position of authority, many felt that it could have been true. And it wasn't, and the fact that 96 dead people and countless other LFC fans who attended the games were maligned for doing something that most fans would do, go and watch a game.

That said, I think we must pay tribute to the strength of all Liverpool fans and especially the families of the 96. Maybe I'm wrong, but I do not think any other fanbase would have gotten even the semblance of justice that LFC fans managed to get. Maybe it's just me but Liverpool has a culture of fighting back and not just laying down before the establishment.

I hope the families of the 96 find peace.

Thanks for the kind words and sentiment there, Parker. Appreciated.

For reasons you'll understand, I deleted the end of that last paragraph, as well intentioned as it was, because it could be viewed as prejudicial by the powers that be. It's a real bone of contention amongst campaigners that we have effectively been gagged since a few weeks after the Inquests and, with trials still to be held (albeit delayed, but that's another story!) we have to be super careful about content and commentary online.

Much Love to loved ones, family, friends of the 96.

I had a day down Liverpool one day last July and took a few hundred photos.  I seen lots of these next to Anfield.

Absolute quality! I know Shearer gets a lot of stick for his punditry, but lets be honest he's a legend.

Fantastic tributes online today from the likes of Man United, Everton, Spurs and Arsenal.

The ones who are still silent are hardly surprising.
