Absolutely right. Well said ....and well remembered @SiHathOn the very same day as the Bradford Fire, 15 year old Ian Hambridge, attending his first ever game at St Andrews was crushed by a wall after Birmingham and Leeds fans fought with each other.
I always think that his death, and that of Kevin Olsson in 1974 are forgotten about much too easily.
Whenever the anniversary of Hillsborough comes around there's the usual "always the victims", "what about Heysel" from fans, but to me it's not concern for the victims of Heysel that fuels those comments, it's just the same tribalism that resulted in the deaths of two teenagers going to watch football matches.
I've been going to matches for long enough to understand that tribalism, but fans of all clubs are just "lucky" that their actions or the actions of the police that are supposed to protect them, haven't resulted in the deaths of more fans.
