Dennis Law

"And I was there ! He scored in front of the Stretford end (Home fans end) and dropped to his knees and wept as soon as he scored it, he knew he'd put his still much loved United down,he said later "it was so natural to put the ball in the net at either end at Old Trafford, I'd been doing it for years........" . No words exist to explain the atmosphere that afternoon.

One good thing that came from it, United learnt to play football again the next season, if memory serves me well they didn't lose a match all season, they were promoted again , and I think that taught them a lesson, they weren't untouchable or unbeatable, they went from the Glory days of the Busby Babes to Div 2 and back again. Now look at them, back where they belong, BUT, look which team once again put a spanner in the works for them this year? Bloody City again !!!!!
