Christopher Loftus and Kevin Speight

1 Conversation

These two men travelled to Istanbul to watch there heroes, Leeds United, play football in the UEFA Cup. On the night of April 5, 2000 less than 24 hours before the kick off, they were knifed down in a skirmish in the streets of Instanbul.

This is a page where you can attach you virtual football scarf1 to the virtual terrace, in sympathy for their family and friends who suddnely lost their lives so suddenly and violently.

Bill Shankley once said 'Football's not a matter of live and death it's more important than that'. Sadly certain events make us all sit up and think NO, Bill you were a great manager but Live is more important than football. For Christopher and Kevin, 'You'll never walk alone'.
