Anfield Shop: Your place for t-shirts!

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of summer…fall will be here before you know it!  Even though the weather might be getting cooler, it’s always perfect weather for a t-shirt.  The Anfield Shop has a wide variety of t-shirts in many colors and styles – and is now proud to be offering exclusive styles from the 47 Brand!

We are proud to be carrying the 47 Brand of t-shirts.  You can only find these styles of t-shirts at The Anfield Shop!  These shirts are super comfy and super soft, well made and licensed.  We’ll be getting more product in soon – so be sure to check back.  Here’s what we have for now.

How about the Official Liverpool FC grey t-shirt?  It is a fantastic slate grey-colored t-shirt featuring a distressed vintage screen print of “Liverpool Football Club” and the Liverbird crest. Cost is $32.00.

Next we have a Liverpool crest scrum shirt which is an awesome charcoal-colored t-shirt featuring a distressed vintage screen print of the Liverpool FC Crest.  Cost is $32.00.

There are many, many more t-shirts available.  Be sure to check them out at the apparel tab on the main Anfield Shop page.  We’re getting new items in almost daily, so be sure to check out our new items as well!  Happy Fall!

Hillsborough Tragedy – Some Thoughts

Hi everyone,

I, along with many of you, waited to hear the results of the independent report regarding the Hillsborough tragedy, which occurred in 1989 and is the worst sporting disaster in Britain’s history.  96 spectators died in the tragedy, and blame all along had been placed on the spectators.  Alleged factors being attributed to the disaster included Liverpool fans being drunk (even though some of the victims were children), overly aggressive and ticketless, simply pushing their way to get to the stadium.

Throughout the 23 years since the tragic event, it became apparent that these allegations were simply not true.  There were eyewitness reports of a lack of appropriate police presence, poor crowd control and an overall lack of planning.  And today, the government of Britain finally acknowledged these short-comings and apologized for placing the blame on the Liverpool fans.

“The tragedy should never have happened,” the report’s authors said in a statement. “There were clear operational failures in response to the disaster and in its aftermath there were strenuous attempts to deflect the blame onto the fans.”

Trevor Hicks, of the Hillsborough Family Support Group, said: “We feel vindicated… We have had all sorts of accusations thrown at us over the 23 years.” He added: “If today says one thing to the world, we are vindicated in our search for the truth.”

Those of us at the Anfield Shop are pleased to finally hear the truth, and we are doing our part to support the victims of the tragedy.  We are offering the HFSG JFT96 Eternal Flame Pin for $5.00, with all of the proceeds benefitting the Hillsborough Family Support Group. While it has taken 23 years to finally hear the truth of what happened, the wounds of the people in Liverpool are still raw.  But perhaps the healing can now begin.

Until next time,

Darren
