I was lucky enough to visit the memorials for the Busby Babes yesterday, the original one and the one made in 2004. It was an odd feeling being so close to a place that has shaped our club`s history, which totally devastated so many people and destroyed a team that had the potential to be one of the greatest of all time. Whilst Sir Matt Busby`s venture in to European football was justified ten years later when we became the first English team to win the European Cup, we were robbed of years of great football from his Babes.
There were several groups of people at the memorials, some young lads, an older couple, a few middle aged men. Whilst the mood was somber, it still felt really good to be there. The Polish supporters club got there before us and left two big wreaths of red and white flowers, and I added some flowers to the collection, on behalf of you lot. If you ever get the chance to go yourself though, you must.
We`ll never die.
I will put pictures up on Facebook as soon a I possibly can.
