United announce permanent Munich memorial ..

David Gill, United CEO and Glazer stooge, has announced that the club are to create a `substantial, permanent memorial' in honour of the victims of the Munich air disaster of 1958. February 6th, 2008, marks the 50th anniversary of that fateful day when the Reds lost so many loved sons.

Gill has yet to announce exactly what form the memorial will take, but the disaster in etched into the memory of most fans, with the story of what happened being passed down from father to son and from Red to Red, so that day will always be remembered by United fans. It's too early to pass judgement of the merits of the proposed memorial, that will be done once we know what the club plans to do.

What we don't want to see is statues or the memorial being situated anywhere near the forecourt, or within easy reach of those who'd go out of their way to defile the memorial and sadly there are many rival groups of Neanderthal fans who'd take the greatest of pleasure in doing so, such is the bitter rivalry from the likes of Man City, Liverpool and Leeds United fans, so the club must ensure that they do not give them the chance.
