Wanderers Ways - passion not fashion

Was there a particular reason why the aim was to have Dukenfield found guilty of manslaughter rather than going for a corporate manslaughter charge against SWFC/South Yorks Police/the FA? Given the context of there being so many factors - the allocation of ends, previous crushing incidents, the lack of a proper safety certificate, the appointment of the commander etc - it seemed odd to try and pin it on to the acts of an individual and not necessarily taking in to account the mitigating factors.

Funny how your green and gold shit died a death when they started to win things again. Something similar kicks off again when they've now won fuck all for years. Strange how all those Sky Reds an

Thought exactly that. A guy on talksport explained it all pretty well and I can see how diffiuclt it was for a jury to criminally convict just him. 

All well and good an inquest deciding how someone died, but when you take that to a criminal court the bar is miles higher. 

Forget the cover up, were his actions that day a criminal offence? 

I’m saying they weren’t. Hugely negligent and made massive mistakes under duress but worthy of criminally convicted for killing folk. Nah.

6,000 to Braga. Fair play to them. Cracking game; 3-3; and what a stadium. Built on a quarry with no seats behind the goals, capacity 30,000, cost over 80 Million Euros. Wikipedia source.

Aye, are those who gathered at the gates and pushed in from the back worthy of being criminally convicted?

Or the person who ordered the fences to built? 

Or the average football fan across England who’s behaviour caused those fences to be built?

It was all one big disaster waiting to happen and everybody was culpable in some way. Duckenfield fucked it big time, but he wasn’t trained properly and shouldn’t have been in that postion, the blame carries on....

What happened after, the lies and the coverup are a totally different story. The families deserve justice for that.

Can't disagree with any of that.

We all saw footage immediately after of masses of people pushing outside.

Residents telling of pissed up fans using their gardens to have a piss in.

A dark day for football all round.

Have to feel for the families of course, but thankfully the law isn't based purely around emotions.

Intersting to see if pocht Stands by his statement about loving spurs too much to manage the arse

Said he wouldn't manage Barcelona out of respect from his time managing Espanyol so you never know

Mind you Barca never asked the question as far as I'm aware, so hasn't really had to think about it

Arsenal should go for Allegri rather than someone who's won nowt

Emery won a bit before Arsenal

Ive said it for years, it’s not the manager, their defence has been shite for years, so mentally weak all over the park, absolutely no leaders? Emery appointed 3 captains this year. Madness.
