Munich - Gone But Never Forgotten

It`s come around again, the anniversary of that tragic day, back on 6th February 1958, when the awful plane crash, in Munich, saw a team devastated.

It`s now 55 years since United lost eight players with 15 others also losing their life`s and with several more badly injured, on that icy Munich night.

Talking about his own personal memories of that night, Sir Alex Ferguson has commented,

"I`ve been affected since a young boy. It was a sad time."

"For many it`s probably long forgotten but for someone like me who remembers the day, you don`t forget it."


Indeed you don`t and it should never be forgotten.

Therefore, we`d ask you, at some time today to take a few moments and say a few prayers for the eight players United lost that night;-

Geoff Bent (25)
Roger Byrne (28)
Eddie Colman (21)
Duncan Edwards (21)
Mark Jones (24)
David Pegg (22)
Tommy Taylor (26)
Liam Whelan (22)

Plus the other 15 others who died.

Gone, but never forgotten!
