Some things are more important than Football

edited October 2020 in The Lounge

For people of my generation this is sad day. I know in England 1966 is remembered fondly, but for me it is one of sadness.

The 21st October 1966, the day the Children died in Aberfan because of the callous attitude of the NCB.

I can still rememeber Cliff Mitchelmore trying to make sense of the tragedy on TV.

If you have time spare a thought for the children and adults who died that day.



  • Jackraven.


    Puts everything in context. Sport of any kind is meaningless!!

  • Well said Jackraven. A tragedy that lives long in the memory. I was the same age as those kids. One of the reasons why Socialism has been so strong in South Wales, the gross exploitation by industry. We need that spirit now more than ever.
