Tragic: 39 football fans died when a wall collapsed at Heysel Stadium

This is a clear reference to United's three European Cup wins and to the riot before the 1985 final in Brussels between Liverpool and Juventus when 39 Juventus fans died.

UEFA banned English clubs for five years. Disgusted Liverpool fans branded the sellers as 'shameful' for 'profiting from the dead'.
