Justicia para los 96

Published

on

15 de abril de 1989. El día en que 96 personas fueron a Nottingham Forest – Liverpool y nunca regresaron a casa. Eran las 3:06 pm cuando el partido que nunca ha terminado se interrumpió en los primeros minutos. Han pasado 30 años desde la semifinal de la FA Cup entre dos de los mejores clubes de Inglaterra. Lamentablemente, con un triste final. Tres décadas de nostalgia y demandas de justicia para las 96 víctimas de Hillsborough.

A principios de este mes, las familias de los fanáticos muertos estaban más frustradas. El jurado no llegó a un veredicto sobre el jefe de policía responsable de la seguridad del partido, David Duckenfeld, quien, de ser condenado, podría enfrentar cadena perpetua. La fiscalía pedirá un nuevo juicio.

El único culpable hasta ahora ha sido el ex secretario de Sheffield Wednesday, propietario del estadio Hillsborough. Su penalización será anunciada en mayo, pero será un máximo de dos años.

Uno de los estadios de la Copa del Mundo de 1966, Hillsborough fue elegido por la Football Association (FA) para albergar el partido entre Liverpool y Nottingham Forest, dos de las mayores potencias de los 80.

En el apogeo del vandalismo y en la sombra de otra tragedia, la de Heysel, en casi todos los estadios había bares que separaban los asientos del campo. Pero la barrera protectora se convertiría en una trampa para la industria de hacinamiento conocida como Leppings Lane Terrace, una especie de “general” en la que era posible ver juegos de pie.

Había siete torniquetes para controlar la entrada de unos 10 mil fanáticos. Y al parecer, solo uno funcionaba correctamente. El embudo que se formó generó una aglomeración en el exterior y la solución presentada para minimizar la confusión que se formó en el entorno fue abrir una de las puertas de salida.

No hubo control debido, y las gradas estaban abarrotadas. La policía tardó en comprender que quienes intentaban saltar a la grilla trató de salvarse y contenían al principio lo que ellos pensaban era una invasión del campo. Cualquiera que no pudiera saltar y se paro junto a la rejilla fue presionado, aplastado, asfixiado.

Noventa y seis fanáticos del Liverpool murieron y más de 700 resultaron heridos. Para propósitos legales, solo se cuentan 95 muertes, ya que uno de los fanáticos murió casi un año después de la tragedia. Se cree que al menos 40 muertes podrían haberse evitado si hubieran recibido la atención correcta mientras aún estaban en el estadio.

Entre estos 96, había padres. Niños. Mujeres. Sueños que nunca se harán realidad. Incluso había un primo del legendario Steven Gerrard entre los 96. Después de 30 años, reclamamos Justicia para los 96. El fútbol en Inglaterra cambió después del incidente. El estilo de los estadios modernos no es el mismo que se veía en los años 80. Incluso la cresta de Liverpool no es lo mismo. Han añadido dos antorchas que simbolizan el luto y la justicia exigente. Justicia para los 96.

Liverpool initiate pre-season with a 6-0 win over Tranmere Rovers

Published

on

The European Champions are back in action! On this Thursday, Liverpool with mostly their reserves, made their first preseason friendly, ending up thrashing Tranmere Rovers 6-0.

The highlight of the match was young striker Rhian Brewster who showed up his “classic number nine” skills and scored twice in the small Prenton Park stadium in Merseyside. Nathaniel Clyne opened the scoring in the six minutes and Brewster scored at 38 and 45. With 11 changes in the second half, Liverpool scored three more through Curtis Jones, Divock Origi, and Bobby Duncan.

As expected, coach Jurgen Klopp used all 23 players at his disposal, among recently promoted youngsters and some reserves, as goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, midfielder Adam Lallana, striker Divock Origi and midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who returned to the fields at the end of last season after a year recovering from a serious knee injury.

Among the holders of the last season, the Brazilian midfielder Fabinho and defender Joel Matip, who were called only in the second half, and midfielder James Milner, who played in the opening stages, were already in the first friendly.

At the end of the match, a good part of the supporters invaded the pitch to take pictures with the players. The most requested one was the UEFA Champions League hero, Divock Origi, who recently agreed his contract extension with the Reds. I’m excited to see Rhian Brewster in action for the main team. I also think that Jurgen Klopp needs to give some chances to Ryan Kent, and Harry Wilson to be at least backup pieces to this squad. It’s hard to say only based on a 6-0 win over Tranmere Rovers, but it’s undeniable that the Reds keep on fire. Will Liverpool and Klopp repeat last season, and maybe finally conquer the so dreamed Premier League this season? Leave a comment below with your thoughts!

The Retirement of a Giant!

Published

on

Everything comes to an end… And on this Friday morning, notorious English striker Peter Crouch announced his retirement from football. At the age of 38, the 2.01m giant used his official Twitter account to inform fans of his decision.

The former Liverpool player said he got it all thanks to football and still made a point of thanking everyone who helped him out during his career in the sport.

“After much consideration this summer, I decided to retire from football. Our wonderful game gave me everything. I am very grateful to everyone who helped me to get there and to keep me for so long.” He wrote.

Crouch was revealed by Tottenham back in 1998 and had also played for clubs like QPR, Aston Villa, Norwich, Stoke City, and Burnley. However, a two-meter giant needed a club with his proportions… And he found everything he was looking for at Liverpool, as he played important roles, scored decisive goals, and even disputed a UEFA Champions League. Also, it was playing for the Reds that Crouch was called to defend England National Team back in the World Cups of 2006, and 2010.

“If you told me, when I was 17, that I would play in World Cups, reach a Champions League final, win the FA Cup and get 100 goals in the English Championship, I would not believe. It was absolutely a dream come true.” Added the player.

In his last season, Peter Crouch began playing in the second division, with the shirt of Stoke City. He then went to Burnley, where he played six games in the English Premier League and did not score goals. He’s a very nice guy, and almost everyone likes him. He’s always making fun of himself due to his big size, and even compare him to a giraffe. I’m pretty sure Liverpool fans will always remember him.

Griezmann signs for Barcelona!

Published

on

Finally, the Griezmann conundrum is solved! After over a year of rumors and speculations, Barcelona announced today the signing of French striker Antoine Griezmann. The confirmation of the transfer occurred with the payment of the fine of 120 million euros to Atletico Madrid, held at the headquarters of the Spanish League.

In a statement, the Catalan team reported that Griezmann signed for five years, until June 30, 2024. Also, the Catalans have set a buyout clause in Griezmann’s contract of about 800 million euros.

Griezmann had the opportunity of joining the Catalans a year ago, but he opted for staying at Atleti. However, something made him change his mind up, as he joins Ernesto Valverde’s side. Griezmann will “steal” Philippe Coutinho’s number 7, as the Brazilian midfielder is currently numberless, and dignity-less as well at the Catalan club.

If Barcelona and Griezmann are happy, apparently the other side, Atletico, is not. The club from Madrid is arguing that Barça should pay 200 million euros instead of 120, as the agreement for the French player was sealed back in March when the fee to sign Griezmann was higher. Atletico is also complaining about the “Barça-way” of approaching their targets, as they seem to forget about etic values and fair play to the other clubs.

But let’s be honest… 120 million euros for Antoine Griezmann is such a joke. He’s a very good player, maybe he’s been world-class at his prime, but he is a merely good player nowadays. Not to mention average season last season with Atleti.

In my opinion, the Griezman arrival in Barcelona is one more problem for Ernesto Valverde to solve. He’s got into such a situation where he needs to figure out how to play Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho, Arthur, and maybe Neymar together at the same time. What a squad Barça is building up by the way. They’ve got everything to become the new “Galacticos” maybe? Yeah, who knows… Only time will say!
