The 80s really were a terrible time for football fans.

Tragic, RIP to all the victims.

After many years, I've just watched that video again and it's horrible to see.

RIP all who sadly died, just attending a football match.


I made a mental note to myself last night not to watch that video again. such was the sadness I felt seeing it.

Heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking. May they rest in peace and never be forgotten.

That was terrible, I recall many fans received horrific burns due to their football shirts melting to the skin.
