'The forgotten semi final' as they tend to call it. Although I seem to recall Pat Nevin scored the only goal of the game.

So basically the equivalent of two coach loads of men, women and children leave a football match in body bags and not one single person is held to account for that.

Funny handshakes involved, I suspect.

I'm not at all surprised. It was always going to incredibly hard for the two juries that have been involved.

There should be a retrial. Terrible guidance from the judge apparently. Brought up football hooliganism in his summing up after it had been shown to be completely irrelevant by the evidence.

What a ******. In what context, any idea Percy? On the day itself, or in a "if they hadn't all been hooligans they wouldn't have been in cages in the first place" kind of way?

Outrageous decision. Why the hell was hooliganism even anything to do with the summary.
