Sir Bobby remembers ’68 – and his thoughts on ’11


Some are unkind enough to refer to it as the Daily Fail – sorry, I cannot agree! Not when The Daily Mail comes up with the sort of interview that Sir Bobby Charlton gave to his friend of 40 years Jeff Powell. There were no leading questions, no double edged attempts to uncover some sort of sensational story which had been laying dormant during Charltons’ decades at Old Trafford.

Every Manchester United man was a hero in that unforgettable 1968 European Cup Final but a young John Aston was the most unlikely one. He can recall the details of the day he ruled Europe as if it were yesterday, from the fezes on Wembley Way to a celebration dinner featuring the Joe Loss Orchestra and the £2,000 bonus which helped him buy his first house. Aston explained to Matt Barlow in an exclusive interview for Mail Online ‘Strange because some things from last week seem like 10 years ago’ smiles Aston, but really not that strange. It may be 43 years ago, but not every day do you eclipse George Best, Bobby Charlton and Eusebio with a man of the match performance as Manchester United seize their place in history as the first English team to win the European Cup.
