February 6th 1958 – 51 years on

Today marks the 51st anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster and it is a time for reflection on those who died playing for our club. Captain Roger Byrne, Geoff Bent, ‘snakehips’ Eddie Colman, Tommy Taylor, David Pegg, Mark Jones, Liam ‘Billy’ Whelan and Duncan Edwards all perished due to the horrific crash on February 6th 1958. Today at around 15:03 we will all remember those people that died that day – the day after the Busby Babes played their last game together. Rest in peace lads.

  1. Sad sad day that was. But United have come from strength to strength to persevere and become such a massive club now.

    I did a post on the Munich crash as well (not as good as your though). Do let me know what you think.
