Remembering all the boys who died at Munich, 6 February 1958, players, coaches, and journalists, never forgotten.   #flowers of manchester.
They were the footprints of a gigantic hound!

I was eight at the time, but I remember hearing about it on the news. :( Man U was one of the teams my sports loving father supported.

I wasn't born and my mum expecting one of my older sisters. My grandmother a staunch fan and her mother, brothers and sisters.  My grandmother spent all her savings on flowers for the team and two of my brothers were named after members of the team. Duncan Edwards my middle brother called Duncan Edward. I know in life this is a sad memory for many and it brings back memories from my grandmother an avid paying fan and my uncle. We always remember and my Gran kept the newspaper cuttings from the days. May they rest in peace.

I was six. I dimly remember it.
