Matt Busby’s Babes Play On

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Roger Byrne the captain speaks
Geoff Bent dodges tackles
Eddie Colman lightly dances on
Mark Jones controls the middle
Billy Whelan feigns and feints
Dave Pegg unleashes the ball
Tommy Taylor’s head outreaches most
Duncan Edwards outplays all
Duncan Edwards outplays all



…or how the 1956/57/58 side
until Feb 6th 1958
outshone even the United sides
of 48 68 and 94 and maybe more..

Written February 1988
for Boby Charlton-Albert Scanlon -Jacky Blanchflower
