Remembering Munich

Remembering Munich

Yesterday was the closest home game to the anniversary of the tragic air crash in Munich.

A crash that saw 23 people lose their lives, with the dead consisting of 8 Manchester United players and 3 club officials. Many others also suffered serious injuries on that February day.

On Tuesday, it will be 60 years since the tragedy and as we`ve mentioned before, the club will be holding a service inside the ground and there will be a minutes silence at 15:04 GMT, the precise time of the crash.

Ahead of the game against Manchester United, a minutes silence was impeccably observed by those inside the stadium and the players wore black armbands.

Those who filed through the turnstiles, were given a commemorative book and pin as the club, quite rightly, paid homage to those who died.

Here`s hoping those books and pins are cherished and are not offered for sale on e-Bay, those who gave their lives for our fine club deserve better.
