There will be a minute’s silence for Bill Foulkes ahead of tonight’s game against Everton. The picture above is the design Stretford End Flags has chosen for a flag.

In the programme notes for the game, David Moyes has paid tribute to our former player, who sadly passed away last week.

“Bill was a giant of a man who played a big part over almost two decades for this club, surviving the Munich air crash and then helping Sir Matt Busby’s side become the first English winners of the European Cup ten years later,” writes Moyes. “I was once close to signing for Bill while he was a manager in Japan and although I didn’t know him that well, those who did tell me that he was a great man.”
