The greatest save he ever made

Manchester and Munich unite to recall 'a black day in the history of football'

From an unprepossessing corner of east Munich to a stand at Old Trafford, the 23 lives lost in the plane crash which has come to define Manchester United were remembered yesterday.

Leading article: Remember them

When the worlds of tragedy and football come together it usually involves the death of supporters: Heysel, Hillsborough, Bradford. But Munich is different. When the small British European Airways plane crashed at Munich airport in poor weather on 6 February 1958, it wiped out the heart of a team. And not just any team. These were the "Busby Babes" of Manchester United, widely regarded as one of the most promising sets of footballers ever assembled in Britain. They were returning from securing a place in the semi-finals of the European Cup after beating Red Star Belgrade. Munich was a fatal stopover.
