I was 12 years old when the Munich crash happened and had seen the babes play on a number of occasions. It was one of the most terrible sporting disasters ever to have happened.

We will always wonder what those boys could have achieved if they weren't taken from us. I still get upset when I think about it. They were certainly the Flowers of Manchester and will never be forgotten.

A long time United fan wrote on February 6, 2016:
58 years on and still the Babes are worshipped at Old Trafford. They must never be forgotten because this is the essence, the heartbeat of our club. The stories must continue to be passed from generation to generation, Sir Matt and his boys still live on in the hearts of all genuine United supporters, the world over. I was born well after 1958 but my parents told me about the thrill off seeing Big Dunc and the others play, and I too have passed this on to my children

Time always seems to standstill at this time every year, and I always shed a few tears about this unspeakable tragedy, and dream about what might have been but never was. We must celebrate the Babes for what they did achieve in just a few short years, for without them things would have been so different now.

As has been said many times before United did rise from the ashes and will always come back after being knocked down.

Let's never forget those 8 players that perished, and the other 15 as well. Sir Matt will always have aspect all place in our hearts, and never forget the ones that survived.

United blood is deepest red, it proudly shrouds our Munich dead. Man United will never ever die

R.I.P. Busby babes and all the other victims in Munich.

And I apologize for many german football fans who don't know why they should not call Manchester United "ManU" - what even the german press still often does.
I know that the majority of young germans don't know the nasty verses about the great Duncan Edwards. They say "ManU" as an easy shortcut with lots of respect for a great club.

Sorry ... and greetings from Berlin

Another year gone by and the memory goes on. Good attendance at the memorial yesterday and fantastic to see Louis Van Gaal there. Also impressed when he read out the final section of the So Many Years song at his press conference later. Going to see Tommy Taylor's grave in Barnsley tomorrow, always good to see it convered in tributes.
God bless lads.

Phil Coffin wrote on February 6, 2015:
"Because how we are in the future will be founded on how we behave today.." Jimmy Murphy's prophetic words to the MUFC Board in the aftermath of the crash is relevant today as ever.

God bless The Babes & all who perished. Please also remember, for me, the twenty-fourth victim of Munich, Capitan James Thain wrongly accused of causing the crash.
