Heysel

Twenty years ago a tragedy happened that should have woken Britain up to a sickness in its national sport. In fact it took another four years and Hillsborough for the country to wake up. Now, as Liverpool prepare to take on Juve again Andrew Hussey has written a commentary on the events of that evening that every football fan should read.

Update: I've had a really good comment via email. Just to clear up, I meant that Hillsborough woke the nation up to issues around ground safety. I didn't mean to imply that it was connected to the same hooliganism.
