50 years on …

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Symbolism subbed in for solace
some modern day advertising was dropped
the support was all geared for succour
and not a commemorative shirt was swapped

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 the minutes silence was deafening
with scarves raised reverentially in the air
the occasion must have got to them though
for United were devoid of any flair

succour as opposed to soccer

Sunday 10th February 2008, observing the 50th anniversary of the Munich plane crash of 6th February 1958.

Man City didn’t read the plot though. They won 2-1 at Old Trafford.

The minutes silence was impeccably observed.
The sea of scarves was very impressive.
