“UP THERE IN THE GODS” Liverpool v Manchester United 1990

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

In this regular blog photographer Stuart Roy Clarke will explain the thinking behind his best Homes of Football images (available to buy here)…

“UP THERE IN THE GODS” Liverpool v Manchester United 1990

The locals are cosy in their special place in the Anfield corner. The photograph was taken at the outset of The Homes of Football which would forever pay homage to Hillsborough, as well as Bradford before it.

When I took it I liked that this balcony was just off to the side of the mighty Kop. I waited for the character (with the hat) to stand beneath, looking up at them. I liked also the window to the sky beyond.

I find myself drawn to the Liverpool fans particularly again now, this season, 2014. An anniversary season when the team seem peculiarly drawn to the light.
