      Martinez will be doing a reading. I think Bill Kenwright too.

      Much respect for Everton. The unity the city shows under such tragic circumstances is beautiful to see, and such rivalries seem petty in comparison.

      I'm sure I heard "Justice for the 96" being sung at WHL yesterday mate.  Can't be sure as I'd dozed off (it was a boring match) and woke up to it but I might well have been dreaming.

      I'm going to be attending for the first time, humbled that it's on the 25th anniversary.
      Sorry to ask such questions but Please could someone tell me what the situation is regarding parking given that I'm out of town?
      Do the normal match day parking areas all open or is it easier to park in the centre and catch a bus?

      We've always parked on Stanley Park mate or at least I think we do.  There's always security there, it's free and there's always plenty of spaces if you get there early enough.

      I'm surprised nobodies mentioned this on here yet.  I know it's not about the Service but it is connected to the 25th Anniversary so no point doing a new thread.  Will be fantastic to see all those legends back at Anfield with Kenny and Houllier managing again.

      Barnsley to Liverpool and back again on the 15th, then back to Wigan for work on the 16th back to Barnsley on the 20th to come back again on the Monday is just too much nowadays. 

      I'm old now hun especially working 10hr days  :D

      It was for me, like all of us a very emotional day

      I listened to the service on the radio as i drove into work this morning in LA.

      What a beautiful service.

      I wore a black shirt and my beloved 35 year old Liverpool scarf even though it was very hot....and i couldn't have been any prouder of those who attended, spoke and represented our family.

      I explained to a fair few of my american colleagues the significance and the tragedy that affected all of football and all went away today with new found anger, sadness and pride for what the great city of Liverpool endured and continues to due to the incompetence of those whom are meant to safe guard us all.

      25 years later it still feels as sad and ridiculous as it did all those years ago.
      Today, all of the rational world became one.

      Thank you to LFC, Liverpool and the football community as a whole.

      My heart breaks for all who grieve every day.

      RIP to all 96.

      What a beautiful day it was yesterday......beautiful in a sad way but also very moving and uplifting.....there seemed to be a little bit more happiness at Anfield yesterday, so many people had joy on their faces......justice is coming, we will never give up until it does.

      Roberto Martinez spoke very well and so did Brendan, he's really endeared himself to the Liverpool people and we regard him as one of us now, a true adopted Scouser. Andy Burnham's reception was an awful lot better than the last time he spoke at Anfield, this time he received applause from all round the ground.

      Honoured to have been present on such a momentus day.
