That's the second time he's died. Not trying to make light of it but how do we know?

Spoke to a lass well connected. He passed away at 4.20am apparently. 

His brain was starved of oxygen for 50 minutes at the beginning. Would have been practically brain dead even hed pulled through  :(

Serious question; was this Blackpool fan an innocent bystander or passer-by who happened to be in the wrong part of town at the wrong time of day wearing the wrong coloured scarf or replica shirt or was he one of the many over 50s guys who we see at every club who are clinging onto the 70s and 80s football violence days?

Either way nobody deserves to die whilst out for a football game. RIP

Anyway, did red Roger manage to defend Eccles?

It'd be the only bit of successful defending by the Filth all day

Its a part of the song 'Spirit of the Blues'.

Spirit of the Boos, surely? 😉

Hoping to go watching Lazio in April

You will need your passport to get in, but its class.

read a few comments on twitter saying he was part of a mob who attacked the boozer with burnley inside .....i've no idea if that is true or just gossip.

 

RIP to the fella ...  Nobody should ever go to a football game and not come home.

Think attacking is slightly strong but they definitely made their way there for a pop at Burnley who were inside and milling about outside too.

This was after a day of alterations including Burnley attacking the Armfield twice.

The video wont make nice viewing for his family put it that way. No head stamping either, he goes down and smacks his head on the floor :(

though if he'd just gone home after the match, then he would still be alive

Indeed.

Looks like there was plenty of time and chances for him just to turn away from it all.

It's really not worth that chance of either being killed or you killing someone with a single punch. It's a game of football FFS.

This.

Since Covid, things have become worse for me. That's not to say everything was great beforehand.

Who was the moron on here who made the comment about how he'd prefer my sort to be at the back with the replica shirt wearers whilst he "goes into battle"?

Shit like what happened to that Blackpool fan hopefully makes him have a rethink.

I'll happily stay at the back, thanks.

50 odd year olds scrapping over footy, several hours after the game finishes, is just strange behaviour. Might be a grandad at that age.

I’m afraid it’s one of the risks you take if you actively go and seek a fight. Shit as it is, it’s not much of a legacy for your loved ones is it?

I've lost a bit of enthusiasm for it all frankly.

Once we were all allowed back in, thought a level of appreciation for what we'd been missing may improve things.

Not the case, and loads of idiot kids giving it the big un to a bus load of away supporters is small time and pathetic. 

Now we have fans attacking players and now this. Shite.

But I don’t doubt there are those who missed the chance of a ruck. 

This is the direction all those we refer to as ‘yoof’ are heading. I hope they enjoy it. I’ll be at the back with DazBob, ta.
