    Now I'm no fan of Man Utd, but it seems like a red rag to a bull to have a minutes silence to remember Munich, against Man City of all teams!

    That's just what you want, total silence to remember the dead and injured of that tragic day and some c0ck in sky blue singing,

    Who's that lying on the runway,
    Who's that dying in the snow,
    It's Mat Busby and the boys,
    Making suck a fcuking nose,
    Coz they couldn't get
    The Aeroplane to go!

    Come on United, engage the brain and get this sorted before more people get injured or worse. Don't let Munich be turned into an excuse for a fight on this day!
  2. Surely it's up to Manchester United as to how exactly they wish to remember the disaster.
    If we start going down the road of 'altering' the traditional silence and remembrance for an event then where could it end.

    If the Stop the War movement suggested disrupting the silence at the cenotaph then would you pander to their view and alter the traditional arrangement? Course you wouldn't.

    There are sufficient stiff enough penalty's in use that allows the authority's to ban troublemakers from football grounds for life. If any of the City fans step over the line during the remembrance moment then they should face those penalty's.
