Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0955925312, Paperback)Brussels, Belgium, 1985. Liverpool are contesting their fifth European Cup Final in just nine seasons. But what starts out as the usual care-free continental trip for Chris Rowland and his friends ends up as the darkest night of their lives. A wall in a decrepit stadium collapses, and as a result 39 Juventus fans lay dying.
From Where i Was standing starts out as an amusing account of the build-up to the final –– an experienced group of eight travelling Reds enjoying the delights of yet another big European occasion –– before the mood in Brussels turns increasingly dark, and tragedy ensues.
What follows is an honest, personal account of what took place inside the stadium that night; one which sets the record straight about an event that tarred all Liverpool fans with the same brush. It concludes with an examination of the aftermath: the world’s reaction (including shocking hostility aimed towards those simply there to watch a match), the official inquests (which apportioned blame far beyond those culpable Liverpool fans), and the punishment meted out to those held responsible.
