    A couple of years before the play offs started and the season was still going, we were leaving White Hart Lane 34 years ago having won 5-1 when the news of this broke.

    56 people went to a game and never came home-i won't post any of the video's as they are too horrific.

    A total tragedy that is hardly mentioned so i thought i would do so for fellow football fans who lost their lives.

    I'm pretty sure Aidy Boothroyd said he was there, or actually in the stand at the time.

    I often wonder how many would be trapped if there was a fire in the Rookery.

    If you’re in the last 10 rows, it takes 10-15 mins to get out.

    Lincoln City, the visitors that day, usually have a supporters flag displayed remembering the 56.

    They also named one of their stands after 2 of the 56 who were Lincoln fans-Stacey-West stand
