On a occasion that needs no introduction, Sunday’s match at Anfield was Liverpool’s first chance to remember the 96 victims of the Hillsborough Disaster following the recent release of the official report documents.
The atmosphere before kick off outside the stadium was electric and full of optimism. Liverpool going into today’s game still awaiting their first league win under the new management. With only 2 points from the opening 4 games of the season a win for Brendan’s boys could jump start the season.
The fans paid tribute with a rousing rendition of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and specially made mosaic cards were held aloft to show continued support and quest for justice for the families who lost loved ones. 96 red balloons were released and the mosaic cards were held again for over a minute long, even as the game had commenced.
