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.

Each February we meet up at Old Trafford to remember those who died Learn more
