Only a Liverpool fan could bring up Heysel and play the victim card.

 

Despite its status as Belgium's national stadium, Heysel Stadium was not a suitable venue for a match such as the European Cup Final. The 55-year-old stadium had not been well maintained for several years, and large parts of the stadium were crumbling. For example, the outer wall had been made of cinder block, and fans who didn't have tickets were seen kicking holes in it to get in. Liverpool players and fans later said that they were shocked at the abject conditions of the ground, despite reports from Arsenal fans that the stadium was a "dump" when the Gunners played there a few years earlier. Liverpool CEO Peter Robinson urged UEFA to choose another venue, to no avail.

 

The stadium was crammed with 58,000–60,000 supporters, with more than 25,000 for each team. The two ends behind the goals comprised all-standing terraces, each end split into three zones. The Juventus end was O, N and M. At the other end Liverpool were allocated X and Y, with the Z section (to one side) being reserved for neutral Belgian fans. The idea of this large neutral area was opposed by both Liverpool and Juventus, as it would provide an opportunity for fans of both clubs to obtain tickets from agencies or from ticket touts outside the ground and thus create a dangerous mix of fans.

 

At the time Brussels, like the rest of Belgium, already had a large Italian community, and many expatriate Juventus fans bought the section Z tickets. Added to this, many tickets were bought up and sold by travel agents, mainly to Juventus fans. A small percentage of the tickets ended up in the hands of Liverpool fans.

 

After an 18-month investigation, the dossier of top Belgian judge Mrs Marina Coppieters was finally published. In sharp contrast to the one-sided version of events on the UK side of the Channel, it concluded that perhaps blame should not rest solely with the English fans, but instead should be shared by the police and football authorities. Several top officials were incriminated by some of the dossier’s findings, including police captain Johan Mahieu, who had been in charge of security on 29 May 1985 and was now charged with involuntary manslaughter

Well done on quoting wikipedia there btw.

I don't think anyone has ever suggested that the Belgian police or the suitability of the stadium itself should be exempt from criticism. That hardly excuses the behaviour of the Liverpool fans on the night or absolves them of the vast majority of the blame for what happened though, does it? To play the 'hard done to' card for being banned for Europe after that is a joke (albeit a sick one). Everton on the other hand have legitimate cause for complaint as they suffered for something that had nothing to do with them. Funnily enough I was actually in Liverpool on the night of the Heysel European Cup final. There were people in the city centre trying to sell cut-price 'Liverpool European Champions 1985' t-shirts in the city centre the next day. I shit you not. Then there were those banners at the game 'celebrating' Munich '58. There's that inimitable Scouse wit for you.
