In an interview with former Liverpool ‘keeper Bruce Grobelaar on Talksport yesterday, Richard Keys took the time to cram one of his size-9 driving loafers down his gullet yet again – this time appearing to blame the 1985 Heysel Stadium disaster (in which 39 Juventus fans died and over 600 people were injured when a decrepit concrete wall collapsed) solely on Liverpool fans who were ‘looking for revenge’ after being attacked by Roma fans a year earlier.

Oh, and Andy Gray also makes a fantastically pithy quip about ‘being stoned’.

Make of this what you will, I’m not touching it  – not even with the ten-foot bargepole I happen to have about my person…

    Beyond a twat.

  2. Chip says:

    He not lying those is he? Whos fault was it then?

  3. Peter says:

    How has he messed up? He hasnt said they tried to kill other fans, merely that they were looking for revenge and that the poor state of the stadium mixed with some troublemakers resulted in deaths. This is fairly accurate isnt it?

  4. brue says:

    I’m sure there is more to this interview than 1 minute – can we hear the full thing?

    Andy Gray – Idiot

    Richard Keys – is talking about a very sensitive talking point so it’s guaranteed to fire this comment section up for the rest of the afternoon…

  5. Miguel - NYC says:

    Why is he a “twat”? He pointed out some obvious things, nothing else.
    Pies, please stop trying to be like Fox News.

  6. dave says:

    I think he has a point myself.

  7. theredflag says:

    This isn’t a big deal. Liddypool fans will be outraged though.

    “Damaging their proud integrity.” Bollocks. I hate Scousers.

  8. Adam says:

    He’s saying what everyone is thinking, Liverpool = disaster

    For the record I think Richard Keys is an overpaid twat

  9. RyanSSL says:

    Sorry but Liverpool fans ARE responsible for the death of 39 Juventus fans. That is a fact! There was a reason why the English were suspended from European competition for six years. The facts are the facts. Lets not forget Hillsborough either.

  10. sal says:

    It was unfair to ban the english and not just liverpool tho. Would they have done that too the italians? or the spanish? or the french? No chance. They fear the english.

  11. GoonerMatt says:

    RyanSSL

    Wow, ignorant or what. Much blame has to be pinned on the ‘Pool fans at Heysel but Hillsborough is a different matter. It’s plain to see the authorities failed to take responsibility and tried to divert it towards the Liverpool fans who were an easy target after the Heysel disaster. Looks like they’ve fooled thick wankers like yourself Ryan.

    Oh and Richard Keys is the king of twats. No wonder he’s on talkSHITE.

  12. Rosstradmus says:

    All scousers are cunts. Each and every one of the thieving, granny stabbing dole stealing pricks. Only 96? God I wish it was 196,000. I would be a start. Eradicate the horrible, horrible diseased fuckers. Blight on society and they know it.

  13. tossah says:

    the fact is, during this time, devoted most english fans would raise hell on the terraces, and liverpool were the only club class enough to make it to the european cup final consistently in those days. whether it was liverpool or any other english club, the football authorities should have been prepared for the english supporters. and heysel was a shit stadium for a final, and should have never been used. INCOMPETENCE on UEFA.

  14. Ben says:

    Um. . . I seem to remember that Liverpool fan were responsible for this. Scousers being who they are will blame anyone but themselves.

  15. derek says:

    pathetic liverpool fans. Now blaming Ricard Keys for Heysel? Who kill the 39 innocent juventus fans.

  16. kahhoe says:

    idiot!

  17. rishab says:

    Iam the fan of liverpool .
    I WATHES all liverpool maths

  18. Carlo says:

    Didn’t hear anything that I didn’t already know. Not a lot wrong with it at all.

  19. nick says:

    why does this story keep getting bounced around all the sites, doesnt seem like a story to me….. keys said something and some liverpool fans took offence…. so?

  20. Johno says:

    Ryan, you keyboard coward gobshite. The Red Flag….you tart! Were either of you at Heysel on that day? Were you fuck so don’t talk about what you don’t know. If you get your information from Talk Shite then you are a fcuking pair of propaganda-sucking children aren’t ya. I was there, I saw what happened and it will always live with me. The media doesn’t want to hear the other side of the story. Remember how Thatcher used this to bury my city farther into the shit? No??? Then fuck off and grow up and keep your shite-spouting mouths shut. Go and find the facts for yourselves, you spoon-fed bellends.

  21. Johno says:

    Thank you, Gooner Matt. Well said son. That Ryan idiot is a fucking dickhead talking out of his arse.

  22. Johno says:

    Ben & Derek……You pair of tough guys…..sitting there thinking you know it all. You know NOTHING about what happened that day. If you had any guts or sense you wouldn’t be referring to Scousers as all being the same would you. That is really disparaging and likely to get you into trouble. Bigotry in idiots is a common enough thing lads and it is born of ignorance, cowardice and insecurity. It expresses itself through gangs and numbers because pusillanimous cunts like you would shit your kecks if you had to face up. Go and run to your mummies, little boys.

  23. Johno says:

    Hillsborough, Ryan??? You dare mention that? What are you trying to say, lad? Be brave enough to come out and say it…….that shows just how ignorant and bigoted you are, lad. It’s fools like you who cause more trouble than any LFC fan ever could. Get back to your X-Box, little boy and pretend your favourite team ever got to a European final….

  24. ih8ignorantcunts says:

    rosstradmus…..im not a scouser but i do wish you and all your family (i would say friends but doubt you have any unless they’re all as fucking ignorantly stupid as you) would die the most horribly slow and painful death you fucking stupid thick CUNT

  25. Dan Lord says:

    Oh my days. I have looked through so many blogs, video’s, articles about the Heysel disaster and NOT ONE Liverpool fan, player or official has taken the blame and APOLOGISED for the manslaughter of 39 innocent football fans. All you have to say is SORRY. Is it so hard? All I’ve read is: the stadium was crap, the police didn’t do this, didn’t do that. GET THIS INTO YOUR HEADS. if those scumbag Liverpool thugs didn’t charge into those Juventus and neutral support, 39 people wouldn’t have died. simples. and they still wonder why nobody likes their football club as a whole. MURDERERS.

  26. Stuart says:

    As someone who followed LFC while living in Manchester during the nineties I can safely say that the ‘murderers’ tag in terrace chants is a recent stick to beat LFC with … funny how there’s a pretence for trying to get LFC to say sorry when it was born out of chest beating about a third European Cup by ManU … I’m sorry that football fans resort to such base emotive issues to get a rise out of the opposition …
