Liverpool FC have enjoyed a very colourful and successful period of history so far. Long may it continue. In identifying the club's successes we must also comment on two of the worst sporting tragedies to have ever occurred. Heysel 1985 and Hillsborough 1989 will live in the memory of all Liverpool fans across the world. May all the victims Rest In Peace.
