    United confirm plans to commemorate the Munich Air Disaster (and ask fans NOT to attend the ground)



    Saturday marks the 63rd anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster. This year, given the ongoing restrictions, our remembrance activities to commemorate our darkest day will be a little different.

    Due to the pandemic, we are unable to gather together for the traditional ceremony under the Munich memorial clock. However, we have safely pre-recorded a version of the service that will be broadcast on MUTV and across the club's digital media.

    As ever, the special event is ‘for the fans, by the fans’. Munich58, who themselves are marking their own 20th anniversary this year, have again co-ordinated the service which will be led by Reverend John Boyers.

    The first screening of the service will begin at 14:55 GMT on Saturday, and will consist of several prayers, poems and songs, including a rendition of The Flowers of Manchester. The names of those who lost their lives in the tragedy will be read out, prior to a minute’s silence at 15:04 GMT, which marks the time the fatal plane crash occurred 63 years ago.

    Reverend John Boyers will lead the service, which has been recorded for fans to watch online this year.

    To ensure that the stadium remains COVID-secure, we kindly ask fans not to attend Old Trafford but to instead pay their respects at home by watching the service on MUTV, ManUtd.com, our Official App or Facebook page.

    With the match against Everton falling on the anniversary itself, there will be a minute’s silence before the game, which kicks off at 20:00 GMT, with both captains laying wreaths in memory of those who died. Both teams will also wear black armbands.

    The tragic events at Munich will be marked by our other teams this weekend. Manchester United Women will remember the anniversary in their game on Sunday against Reading, with wreaths laid by the captains and black armbands worn by the players. Academy players will also wear black armbands in their games at the weekend.

    Within Old Trafford, flags supplied to us by the fan group Big Lily will be placed in the stands remembering the legends we lost. Flags will also fly at half-mast at the stadium as a gesture of respect. A giant banner will be positioned in the centre of the Stretford End proclaiming the powerful words, ‘We’ll never die’.

    Meanwhile, the Manchester Munich Memorial Foundation, who traditionally arrange a service in Munich, have also regretfully cancelled the ceremony. Instead, they will arrange for a wreath to be laid at the site on behalf of all United fans

    "In the Premier League you play against different types of strikers week in, week out so you know every striker is going to bring something different, and everyone has strengths and everyone has weaknesses,”

    “I know Dom from our time with England and he’s very physical and a handful, and we’ll need to be right on our game to keep him quiet.

    “If we manage to do that, it will be a big part for us in, hopefully, taking steps towards the victory.”

      Maguire likes to see the full backs attacking (but does mention that they are defenders first!)

      “Obviously, Luke and Aaron have been excellent of late. They’ve really picked up their attacking game and started to fly forward and create chances which is really important for the team. We know how big an influence full-backs in the modern day have on the attacking side of the game, as well as the defensive side.

      “First and foremost, they’re defenders for us and I’ve got to say they’ve been brilliant on that side of things. They don’t get beaten one-v-one which is really important, they’re stopping crosses and they’ve been defending the back-post really well.

      “As a back-four, we’re working hard together. I have big demands on my full-backs, I am expecting them to fly forward but I also expect them to fly back as well.

      “Luke has been great and Aaron was great at Arsenal last weekend and it’s really important that they keep up this form to help the team.”
