I was just reading up on Hillsborough and I was wondering, is it common knowledge in football circles that the youngest of the victims was Steven Gerrard's cousin?


I've read about that before. Not sure if it's common knowledge, but Liverpool fans will no doubt know about it already.

According to what I read, Gerrard used the incident as inspiration to become a professional footballer.....for Liverpool.

His cousin was 10 when he died. SG couldn't have been much older...

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

they played citeh off the park, especially in the second half, how good was Joe Hart again though?

Had citehs penalty been given to united, there would have been an outcry of the usual guff, shocking decision

plenty empty seats again at the emptihad........dortmund support were superb

Hart is the only reason they were in the game.

We'll slaughter them at Signal Iduna.

I dont think there will be any team looking forward to going there to play, from what I have seen so far, Dortmund could well win that group.

So, it must have been a straight dislocation, rather than a break?

Even so, he's pretty tough to come back so soon after that...

Yes, the bone wasn't broken. He says he can play but I think he won't. RM has a good chance there

I heard he was out of both of the upcoming Champions League games against Celtic, so I'm not sure that he'll be playing for quite a while.

Horrible injury.

EDIT: Yeah, 8 weeks.

Yes, the club has said that. I was wrong because he wrote in his twitter "Ready to go for sunday" but then he deleted the tweet. Anyway, great game on sunday

:lol: You thought I thought we had signed Buttner 2 years ago? :lol: :lol: :lol: What a muppet!!! Do you not understand punctuation? I have highlighted said punctuation for you above, ask someone if you are stuck, there really is no shame in asking for help.

You are always a little bit quick to try and start a row with me........small club fan mentality shines brightly in this one. boing boing

i don't want to get involved in the hostility, but isn't that a comma splice? second comma should be a period

obviously mahmood was being sarcatsic, but the sentence does read like it's one thought.

I read it it the way bananas meant it, but you're right. The second comma should have been a period.

A couple of goals from Panama would really help! Still 0-0 at the half.

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

ya, 20 mins left. Time for Honduras to start flopping around on the floor to kill the clock. Brutal red card on Occean in the Canada game. They better be calling Lucas Cavallini in Uruguay and Marcus Haber in England if they can't win an appeal. 4 days until we play Honduras and we need another striker.

there are feeds in Spanish on hahasport if people want to see the end of Panama-Honduras.

I can deal with the Belgium loss. I expected it tbh. 6-0 losing to Honduras is unacceptable for Canada. The CSA needs a revamp as does the coaching staff. I know Hart is renowned world wide for his time coaching Nova Scotia Donair Kings........

6-0 to Honduras is pretty miserable.

I don't get it. You'd expect Canada to be at the US's level at least, but no.
