Heysel,

Canny believe it's been 30 years. This is a good read. Phil Neal comes over as a cunt.
The thought of a football match going on as bodies are scattered over the place is just unreal.

Christ, that's a harrowing read. Glad I was too young to have any memory of it and you're right, Phil Neal sounds like a complete arsehole.

A lot of things have thankfully changed since those days, but it's sad to read that there is very little to commemorate it at Boudewijn stadium and surprised Juve were so cold towards the families.
