      The page also contains other resource links.

      This is the first time I've seen an in depth analysis of the crush barriers.

      This is the first time I've seen an in depth analysis of the crush barriers.

      Seeing that barrier just reminds me of how horrific it really must have been.

      Thanks for posting.  Only goes to highlight how the likes of the FA and their lack of safety certificates should also have been held to account.  Football fans really were treated like animals back in the day.

      The bit that got me was when they found an old newspaper in there from 1931.

      Cattle were treated better than football fans.

      Evidence right there if it were ever needed to convict SWFC for failure of maintenance of the crush barriers which were just merely painted over rather than replaced.

      :mad: Clear evidence that shows no blame can be placed on the supporters.
      Such a needless waste of lives.
