The Kop, Anfield. Visited in '89 in the FA Cup QF when Liverpool were at their all-conquering best. 9,000 Bees saw us lose 4-0 but earn an ovation from the Kop for a spirited performance. The events of the Semi-final that Liverpool progressed to at Hillsborough changed football forever and still bring tears to my eyes a quarter of a century later. An utterly avoidable tragedy symptomatic of the treatment we endured as football fans at that time.
