A day of sadness hard to recall - without goodbyes they left us all.

Always remembered, never forgotten, just happy young boys who loved the game, loved their club, loved their countries. No pretentiousness, no cockiness - just lads who lived and played the game the right way. Sleep on in your peace dear "Babes".

The 'like' of this group of talented, mostly home grown talent will never, ever, be seen again. RIP, you Busby Boys and the rest of crew, United staff, journalists and passengers.

You'll never be forgotten, cos' UNITED will never die.

As big 'Dunc' used to say, "We've not come here for nuffin'"

I cried like a baby whilst watching the film "United" last night.
What a waste of talent and youth never to be seen again in my lifetime.
Rest in peace "BUSBY BABES"

I was 11 years old in February 1958 but I remember the crash vividly, I loved LFC but I idolised The Busby Babes particularly Duncan Edwards who I always wanted to be when I was playing football in our back street. I recently bought a DVD of the 1957 FA cup final and it was so sad to watch knowing that in less than a year so many brilliant players would be dead.I never saw the Babes play but I would have loved to have seen them play at Anfield and of course at Old Trafford. My respects to all those who lost their lives at Munich.

They will always be remembered. Who knows how much success Manchester United and England would have had. Look how much Sir Bobby achieved.

A great loss to Manchester United and more importantly their families.

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

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