I was surprised they only recently banned their reporters from the ground. Didn't Souness make himself deeply unpopular by selling the story of his heart op as an exclusive to the rag?

I seem to recall that not only did he give the exclusive about his heart op to the paper hated on Merseyside but it's timing also coincided with the anniversary of the disaster.

At the time he was recovering from his heart operation just before a semi final if I recall

Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere.

Whatever peoples' views about the honours system/Liverpool FC/Hillsborough, Kenny Dalglish's knighthood is truly deserved, if scandalously overdue.

More deserving than some of the other idiots who've been honoured over the years...

Absolutely, I'm no fan of the honours system but he was long overdue.

A shame his rep was tainted by the Suarez/racism serial.

He took a lot on his shoulders after Hillsborough and deserves it for that. Admittedly, even allowing for sticking together and a siege mentality he did get it badly wrong over the Suarez incident.

Good. And just as importantly against SWFC club secretary at the time Mackrell.

Two more loathsome men it would be difficult to find.

I'll repeat the words of FSA co-founder Peter Garrett - "We only want one man to say 'I'm sorry. I made a mistake'."

One specific man, or one in general. Because it definitely looks like the accumulation of at least 3 major mistakes for this tragedy.

Ultimately it was Duckinfield. I'm convinced that had he not acted in the way he did afterwards, Liverpool supporters might have accepted that they were, possibly, 1% to blame for behaving in the same way as all football supporters, always.

I do have a little bit of sympathy with Duckinfield as he has been laid out as the main culprit - Even imprisonment would not be enough for some people they will then want to commence civil proceedings. 

A  lot of bad issues occured that day, but one man (and I am fully aware others are being sent to trial) has already been found  guilty, when in fact it was negligence not intended that caused the event.

Compare  Duckinfield to a person who kills whilst driving holding a mobile phone.  I know who I would reserve my anger towards.
