Although I am to young to remember the Busby Babes, I became a United fan in part because of the stories my father and grandfather told me of them, so I've always felt a connection with these young men that tragically died years before I was born.

R.I.P. The Flowers of Manchester

The day of the disaster is still fresh in my memory 62 years on. It has been a pleasure following United since I was 7 years old, my first game in 1943. The time watching the Babes was certainly the most pleasurable. Excellent footballers robbed of their future. Remembering the players, officials, journalists and aircrew who lost their lives or were badly Injured. Not forgotten either my mates from the stretford end in the 50’s who have since died.
Never forgotten by me or my daughter and grandchildren.


ever

February comes around again and thoughts turn towards the crash and the people who lost their lives.
Dad was a 19 year old United supporter when the disaster happened. That day stayed with him for the rest of his life.
He brought both me and my brother up to know the history and respect the traditions of the club. The three of us travelled far and wide following United through the 70s, 80s, 90s and early 00s until Dad passed away - far too early - in 2004.
In 1998, Dad was invited, along with a few other supporters from that era, by the club to attend the 40th anniversary service at Manchester Cathedral. It was his proudest moment of being a Manchester United supporter - far and above anything that he had seen on a football field.
I haven't been to United since 2008. My enthusiasm began to diminish after Dad passed away and the subsequent takeover years left me feeling increasingly alienated from the football club that I loved.
Those years of following the reds were very special. At the core of the whole passion was the feeling of pride in memory of the boys of '58. That feeling still remains.
God bless the Flowers of Manchester.
