Everybody knows that the initial problems were caused by a load of pissed up scousers arriving late and causing a crush outside but no scousers will accept that

Fault of the police who were not set up to deal with a football crowd which let's face it, will include some drunk fans at nearly every game.
Fault of the stewards and stadium management for not having a safe stadium entry system.

I feel for the families who lost lived ones, but for years the Scousers breached safety rules regularly so they could get in to a ground. On many occasions at Wembley in the early 80s you'd see 'Fans' climbing through windows, pulling others up over gates and basically screwing safety.
Even since 89 we see over crowded areas when Liverpool play, gangways are full, seats are never sat in and they pile two people in on one ticket through turnstiles.
Victims..the ones who died yes, but drink, arrogance and utter disregard for the fellow fan is why we have this issue still.
