With the 50th anniversary of the Munich Air disaster approaching, Manchester United have plastered a picture of the Babes to the outside of the East Stand. The words to the Calypso song are placed alongside the photograph.

United have already announced that they will be wearing a 1950’s styled kit when they play City on February 10th, which will consist of a plain red shirt and baggy shorts. The tunnel will be renamed ‘The Munich Tunnel’ and a free exhibition for the team on show.
