I was rather hoping that this post was going to be about that horrifically sobering day 30 years ago that a good few of us on here, I'm sure, witnessed unfolding whilst at Villa Park.
I was 16 back then, with my friend and our respective fathers. No mobile phones or anything like that back then, just a few around us in the Holte End with pocket radios and that big display screen in the opposite corner of Villa Park that merely stated "Match delayed at Hillsborough".
I didn't think much of it at the time. Just thought they'd maybe delayed kick off to allow the crowds to get in. It was only later into the first half that those around us with pocket radios were telling us that people had died. I'm not sure how far it was into the match but from then on, few of us were watching the Norwich match and were eager to learn more about what horror was unfolding at Sheffield.
Even then, when I was 15, I vividly remember thinking "This is another football disaster, happening right now, then will never be forgotten in my life time". That thought alone was very chilling and here I am, aged 46 seeing that it's still in the news and many families' lives were utterly destroyed.
If any people wish to level blame at the Liverpool fans, then just have a search for the 1981 FA Cup Semi Final at Hillsborough for Spurs Vs Wolves. It was virtually the same scene then, with fans climbing over barriers and fences to avoid being crushed.
It's the utter inability of the authorities to have acted on the warning signs that were there at least 8 years earlier that is so frustrating.
