Manchester United commemorates 60th anniversary of Munich Air Disaster

'Busby Babe' Liam remembered at graveside ceremony 1958 Munich air crash: A tragedy that still haunts and defines Manchester United
Ray Hunter | 09 February, 2018, 08:26

In a statement on Twitter, Lingard said: "A member of my media team inadvertently replied to a tweet this afternoon on my twitter profile during the Munich memorial service at Old Trafford".

Legend Sir Bobby Charlton and Harry Gregg are the only living survivors of the crash.

Recitations and poems in tribute to the group will precede a minute of silence scheduled for 3:04 p.m., which was the time of the plane crash.

Gregg has never liked talking much about the Munich air disaster and has always played down his role in the immediate aftermath of the crash when he pulled survivors from the wreckage of British European Airways Flight 609, the haunting if misplaced guilt perhaps of a reluctant hero.

United's current manager Jose Mourinho and captain Michael Carrick laid wreaths at the service which was also attended by Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino, UEFA vice-president Fernando Gomes, Manchester City ambassador Mike Summerbee and Liverpool's Kenny Dalglish.

On February 6, 1958, eight of Matt Busby's Manchester United squad and three club staff members were among 23 passengers to lose their lives in 1958. "It was such a momentous event, for so many young people to die just on the verge of the great success that was ahead of them, and I couldn't understand why".

There were also representatives from Sheffield Wednesday, United's first opponents after the incident, and Bishop Auckland, who loaned players to the club in the aftermath. The coach, after a lengthy hospital stay, managed to return to Manchester United and aid in the rebuilding process.

Lawmakers push for legislation to deter people from eating Tide Pods
The two legislators say the pods are a risk to young children and adults with dementia who might mistake them for food. They are asking that the pods be wrapped in child resistant packaging, and be made in a duller, more uniform color.

"It was when I was about seven or eight", the 20-year-old striker told United Review.

"When I got there, all the players were crying". Some surviving doctors and nurses involved in the treatment of manager Sir Matt Busby and his team were also in attendance.

"The day that is absolutely shown in red on this week's calendar is on Tuesday, a day that marks the 60th anniversary of the air disaster", Spanish forward Juan Mata wrote in his blog on United's website.

"They will never be forgotten. The passion, determination and courage shown by the club to carry on in those disgusting moments have left an indelible mark forever".

"Today marks an important and sombre anniversary in the history of this great city", she said.

"It was a really emotional time for anybody who was a football fan".
