2 2014 Hillsborough Poems Selection
Remember The 96 15.04.89

With the truth finally out and justice it seems at last to happen, these are a selection of the poems we have received in the last 13 years which remember the lives of those 96 souls we lost . The tragic Hillsborough disaster and human crush occurred during the semi-final FA Cup tie between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989 at the Hillsborough Stadium in Sheffield. The crush resulted in the deaths of 96 people, with a total of 766 other persons being injured. All of them were fans of Liverpool Football Club. New poems always welcome.

3 .Munich Remembered 6.2.58 – 6.2.14 Your Poems

Link: munich58.co.uk Munich 58 Tribute Site Features

On February 6th 1958, 23 people (of the 44 passengers & crew) lost their lives when a plane crashed at Munich Airport, while attempting to take off in snowbound conditions. Among the dead, were members of Manchester United Football Club, who were returning from a European Cup match, having just played against Red Star Belgrade. Munich was a re-fuelling stopover. Listed below as many poems as we can find on the subject, that have recently, or previously been, uploaded onto this website by many of our contributors, paying their respects. Further thoughts of course welcome.
