Bill Shankly once said “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”
On a day when we remember the 96 fellow Liverpool football club supporters who went to the FA cup semi-final on April 15th 1989 and never returned to a red and blue Liverpool we must keep in mind that football should only ever be metaphorically a situation of life and death.
This is the longest of matches being played, there can only be one winner in the fight for justice. It has been too long, we are willing to win, hoping to win, knowing we will win. WE WILL BE TRIUMPHANT.
Liverpool made a stand, we stuck together, twenty five years have passed but there has never been a doubt within Liverpool that our 96 died a wrongful death, that it was covered up, that they were bashed by institutions. But now we rise up, in this year when we can dream of lifting a trophy oh so important, we will gain the justice deserved for those who went to support their team with red hearts and red kits on their back on that fateful day.
But with our red hearts, red kits and scarves we will remember that:
We are Liverpool Football Club, We are family and you will never walk alone.
