He did go on the playing fields, they are now named after him. The lads used to walk round to his house and ask him if he could come out to play  ;D

Awesome!

Come on kiddywinkles. There's fuck all to do on the forum during international breaks but discuss the same old shite about players that you've had loads of times, and you will do again when the players get back. Just take five minutes of your time to read this fantastic article instead.

Exactly so Davvo mate. The fella who tied his bike to the drainpipe outside the player's entrance at OT was the great Duncan Edwards. Bloody hell eh?

I know there's a grain of truth in auld arses over-glamourising those good old days. But in amongst having to battle through all the shit and the piss of the bogs at the old grounds was some real love for the game plus a genuine shared passion and a togetherness between the players and the fans. Course the players back then were never catapulted into the financial stratosphere like today's exponents of the footballing art.

Some of the half-baked , hype-believing disconnected-from-real-life "superstars" of today would fucking run you over in their blacked-out window Porsche 4 x 4's. Too many journeymen multi-millionaires polluting the game today. Wouldn't piss on some of 'em if they were alight.
How fast could Duncan tie knots Johnno?

He was like shit off a shovel mate - only he didn't stink . . . !

He'd have the bike done and tied up and he'd be inside the player's entrance in . . . . ooooohhh maybe 10 minutes - after he'd signed all the kids autographs ;) ;D ;D

There is nothing wrong with striving to win, so long as you don't set the prize above the game. There can be no dishonour in defeat nor any conceit in victory. What matters above all is that the team plays in the right spirit, with skill, courage, fair play,no favour and the result accepted without bitterness. Sir Matt Busby CBE KCSG 1909-1994

I don't like repeating myself but Shankly and my dad were friends as well as me He really liked my dad cos he didn't,t pull his punches, I remember sitting at the back kitchen table listening to them in the next room. it was funny as well as being sensible and he shanks adored Karen and Pauline just as much as my dad did. I remember Shanks visiting our house after my dad died always wanting to ask if there was anything he could do, I am not ashamed to say I loved him we would go out and watch non-league football one night we went to watch Cammel Lerds  I had 2 flat caps and loaned him one not many recognised him we paid to go in I think the fella thought we were both pensioners so we paid less than others. But he was such good company, you will never waste time talking to him
