Peel's opening comments about his return from Brussels refer to his presence at the 1985 European Cup final at Brussels, where, according to Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heysel_Stadium_disaster )

"The Heysel Stadium disaster occurred on 29 May 1985 when a masonry wall failed then collapsed under the pressure of escaping fans in the Heysel Stadium in Brussels, Belgium, as a result of rioting before the start of the 1985 European Cup Final between Liverpool of England and Juventus of Italy. 39 people died, 32 of them Juventus fans, and 600 were injured.

Approximately one hour before the Liverpool-Juventus final was due to kick off, a large group of Liverpool fans breached a fence separating them from rival Juventus fans. The Juventus fans ran back and away from the threat into a concrete retaining wall. Fans already seated near the wall were crushed; eventually the wall collapsed. Many people climbed over to safety, but many others died or were badly injured. The game was played despite the disaster in order to prevent further violence. ... The disaster was later described as 'the darkest hour in the history of the UEFA competitions' "
