    Premier League ‏@PLSpokesman 1m

    There will be also be a minute's silence at every game to remember those who lost their lives in the disaster http://bit.ly/Hillsborough25
    As a mark of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives as a result of the Hillsborough stadium disaster in April 1989, all Premier League, Football League, Football Conference and FA Cup matches taking place on the weekend of 11-14 April will kick off seven minutes later than originally scheduled.

    The match at which the disaster took place, the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest on 15 April 1989, was ended six minutes after kick-off, at 3.06pm.

    In the Premier League, Football League, and Football Conference, matches due to kick off at 3pm on Saturday 12 April will now do so at 3.07pm, with the minute before kick-off (3.06pm-3.07pm) having a period of silence observed at all stadiums.

    The first FA Cup semi-final on Saturday 12 April between Wigan Athletic and Arsenal will kick off at 5.07pm with a minute of silence between 5.06pm-5.07pm.

    The next day, Sunday 13 April, the FA Cup semi-final between Hull City v Sheffield United will begin at 4.07pm with a minute of silence between 4.06pm-4.07pm.

    Fixtures kicking off at other times on Friday 11, Saturday 12, Sunday 13 and Monday 14 April will observe the same etiquette with matches starting seven minutes later than originally scheduled.

    It's so hard to control feelings and to stay quiet! Of all the injustice and the crappy excuse of a publication the SUN can write and do whatever they want, but we have to stay quiet and not "influence" jurors, who by definition of their job should never be prejudiced!!!

    It'd be nice for other teams' fans to actually respect the silence this year.

    Generally minority fans make noise, except at Chelsea where it's quite a large section!

    I meant the fans of a specific club - the majority of other fans are nothing other than completely respectful.

    I'd rather they didn't give me any reason to think them human. I'm more than happy for them to darken their souls and blacken their hearts.

    First thing that popped into my head to. 19 teams will respect it impeccably, Chelsea will boo, absolutely no doubt about it.

    Chelsea booed at the Cup Semi Final in 2012, and FA did FA to punish them or find the ones doing it, just the usual "we will look in to it" crap so questions stop getting asked, and people think something is being done. Can't be too difficult to have looked at CCTV and identified the majority involved. When one fan out of 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 thousand etc does something wrong, such as a chant, gesture or item throwing they identify them instantly and issue banning orders.

    Back to the original topic and the idea for the delays, good they are doing this, and with all games and not just ours.

    Have a look on their forum, they're already asking why they should have to do this. Saying that this is just an agenda for our club that we won't let go off.

    Yep, agenda... not fighting for justice... *****, the lot of them.
