FSA: Tragedy Chants: Fans To Show Leadership

17 Apr 2023 | 3 comments

Sadly this season we’ve seen too many games marred by a minority using past tragedies – such as the Hillsborough disaster, Munich air crash or individual fans being killed on foreign soil – to wind up opposition fans.

To us, and every right-minded fan out there, it’s not funny, it’s not banter and those who do it are letting their club and fellow fans down. It has to stop and in the coming months we’ll be developing new work in this area – and Spirit of Shankly’s Joe Blott will be representing the FSA on a working group alongside the wider football family to begin educating fans on the controversy.

    Like the homophobic chanting and the racist abuse at football grounds it only harms the club,you cannot arrest 3 to 4 hundred people who do it and it is ludicrous to say you can, all over European football there have been ground closures because of it,the only way I can see is through education make it part of the school curriculum,I think it may help but society to me seems very much broken down and I don’t only mean football kro

      Agree with Peter that the whole of society is not what it used to be,respect as gone out of the window,language off and on the field is terrible and it’s only going to get worse.We live in a very different time,things have changed for the good in many things but for the worse in many things as well.

    Sad society now when kids feel it’s a badge of honour to be disrespectful. Anyone trying to do the right thing gets classed as being weak. Teachers need to buck up and show proper morals instead of trying to be ‘popular ‘ with pupils.
