The beautiful lights of Hillsborough

Recommended Posts

Apparently the astronauts in the international space station saw the lights from Hillsborough. True story :biggrin:

Why in the name of f.ookery would anyone want to leave that?...to sod off to some sanitised toilet bowl shaped ground nr thye M1...Why?

Thats Hillsborough...in all its glory....THe crowd bouncing..sheer racous bloody cacophony...

Thats not only about the club that...Its about the fans, the history..its about the whole ethos of the place...tainted as some may think it is....Its home to me, and I hope it always remains so

You're not wrong mate.

I'm knocking 56 but never seen anything like that in my time watching Wednesday. I'm getting emotional now at half 2 in the morning looking at these pictures (I've had a few sneck lifters but still...)

Awesome evening at S6

Andy, wish I could plus you a million times over for that! Has brought a tear to my eye.

 

Hillsborough is our home and always should be. We have the space and with some imaginative planning can have everything we need there.

 

No need to move at all, ever!

I don't know how it happend or why. It was just on of those beautiful moments in life that you'll never forget.

I'd almost fallen out of love with football.

Moments like that remind you why you love the game. Why it worth putting up with all that 16 years of garbage.

My lad is 21 and I have dragged him to Hillsborough virtually kicking and screaming at times when he was younger.

To see his face last night will live with me forever.

Superb night, I feel sorry those who couldn't be there in person - the photos and videos just don't do it full justice

I've seen a hell of a lot in my 46 years of supporting the Owls but that 


 


light show from the fans, for me, has to rate as one of the most 


 


awe-inspiring scenes from all those years.


 


The spontaneity of it was the key - well done to all.

Leicester's was planned. Taking the mickey out of a recent power failure IIRC?

 

Last night at Hillsborough it was spontaneous and looked incredible. Besides, not everyone thought it was tinpot. Remember, some of our fans thing balloons, scarves and inflatables are tinpot.

Absolutely awesome.

 

Not pre-arranged. I just noticed at first one or two phone lights on South and Kop

and then in seconds the stadium was awash with lights.

 

What a sight !!   I'm 71 years old and have been going to Hillsborough since I was

a kid and cannot remember a better occassion. There have been bigger crowds, there have

been better performances (but not that many) but I cannot remember an occassion when everything

came together so brilliantly.  -  the importance of the game, the performance of the team, the result

and the best atmosphere I can remember!

 

No doubt that after last night the "light show" will become a feature at many grounds for a while, but

rest assured the display last night at Hillslborough will NEVER EVER, be matched.(not even by us!)

The spontaneity of it made it so special.

 

So proud to have been there last night. A night that I'm sure no Owls fan who was there will ever forget.
