Commentator’s touching tweet sums up perfectly what was a ‘special day at Anfield’

Posted by

BT Sport commentator Darren Fletcher has labelled yesterday as ‘a special day’ after Liverpool and Nottingham Forest fans came together to remember the victims of the Hillsborough disaster and played out a thrilling encounter at Anfield.

The hosts earned all three points despite twice being pegged by Steve Cooper’s outfit and eventually ran out as 3-2 winners.

The travelling supporters showed their class in the sixth minute of the game as they unveiled a banner reading ‘Respect the 97. Solidarity with survivors. No to tragedy chanting’ with all of those inside L4 applauding in what was a really touching tribute.

“Gutted with the result but the fact two old rivals @NFFC & @LFC provided such entertainment and drama after the two sets of fans came together as one to remember the Hillsborough victims felt very fitting,” Fletcher wrote on Twitter. “It seemed like a special day at Anfield as it needed to be #JFT97.”

Too often this term (and in years gone by) we have heard vile chants about tragedies and people dying and it really is time for it to stop.

There is no excuse whatsoever to hear such chants and let’s hope other clubs can now follow suit.
