    Morning Mark, well observed piece in the Guardian re: hooligan chic and 96 deaths – i’ve taken the liberty of linking this from for the non Guardian reading elements of our readership. Best wishes, Biffa.

    Hi Mark. Just wanted to say how much I appreciated your article in the Guardian this week. You seemed to take an opinion that I have always held – and at times felt a bit isolated for – and put it into a national paper. It is a shame that they closed the comments section as it was generating some fascinating debate. There were clearly some who had seen the words “Hillsborough” and “Hooliganism” and jumped to a response without reading it but I felt that what you wrote was absolutely spot on!
