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!
