PostSubject: Heysel tragedy 29/5/1985   Sat May 29, 2010 3:20 pm

What happened Twenty-five years ago,

The Heysel Stadium Disaster occurred when a wall collapsed under the pressure of escaping fans in the Heysel Stadium in Brussels, as a result of rioting before the start of the 1985 European Cup Final. 39 people, 32 of them Juventus fans died, and 600 were injured.

Approximately one hour before the Liverpool-Juventus final was due to kick off, a large group of Liverpool fans breached a fence separating them from rival Juventus fans. The Juventus fans ran back and away from the threat into a concrete retaining wall. Fans already seated near the wall were crushed; eventually the wall collapsed. Many people climbed over to safety, but many others died or were badly injured. The game was played despite the disaster in order to prevent further violence.

Today, 25 years later, the largest football disasters in history was commemorated in the King Baudouin stadium,the stadium was renamed,rebuilt and improved.The stadium was opened to the public. Under an impressive calm and subdued atmosphere, people walked around the stadium. Among those many people who were there that day, with tears in his eyes.
The Last Post echoed through the stadium when the names of 39 victims were read. The minutes silence that followed seemed the emotion of all who witnessed it to contain. Especially in the present with Italian roots was too much.

Delegations from Juventus and Liverpool were present at the commemoration. Both they came side-by-side, lay flowers at the monument and the new plaque commemorating. Brotherly, remembering the disaster that should never happen, but now serves as a reminder of what hooliganism can cause.

On Thursday Italie will play a friendly in Brussels against Mexico before the game the italian players willlay flowers at the plaque.I will try to make some pics and post them.

[b]THIS MAY NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!!!!

Tragic event which will always be remembered. I was watching CNN this morning where Platini made a statement something along the lines of 'that match will never end'.

R.I.P. to all victims of the Heysel tragedy
