    R.I.P

    United's flag is deepest red,
    It shrouded all our Munich dead,
    Before their limbs grew stiff and cold,
    Their heart's blood dyed it's ev'ry fold.

    Then raise United's banner high,
    Beneath it's shade we'll live and die,
    So keep the faith and never fear,
    We'll keep the Red Flag flying here.

    We'll never die, we'll never die,
    We'll never die, we'll never die,
    We'll keep the Red flag flying high,
    Because Man United will never die

    Plane Crashed, People Died, People Remember.

    Was disgusted that some England fans whistled and jeered during the minutes silence at Wembley just now.

    Well said. In a way, that's why clapping is sometimes preferable. You muffle the random idiots.

    But surely there's nothing as emotional as 80,000 people standing together in silence?

    As far as I know the minutes applause was first used for George Best (which was very fitting)... but personally I prefer the minutes silence (which was only 20 seconds last night?) If there are idiots that want to jeer during it, they should be thrown out.

    I don't find anything emotional about the minutes of silence I've attended in stadiums. Everybody looking at their watches, checking their phones, coughing...

    I prefer the applauding, to be honest.

    Absolutely. A loss such as this should be mourned by all who care about the game.

    thank you my friend
    itv did a wonderful programme last night and sir bobby charlton bought tears to my eyes. such dignity and love for his friends.
    he and harry gregg are utter heroes
    the amazing thing is how they express regret about being the ones who survived
    no one can deny sir bobby charlton as a world class footballer but surely in these days he is accepted even more as a figurehead of all that is good about the game.
    he is a true legend

    i don't prefer the applauding - applause is for good things, not bad things.

    The silence created by 80,000 people may not be emotional, but it is very powerful.
