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.

His statue stands outside Old Trafford together with fellow legends Bobby Charlton and George Best. In the 1960s, Denis Law was ‘The King’, a goal scoring genius who relentlessly attacked the game – and the occasional opponent, with a dedication and enthusiasm which held his legions of loyal subjects in devoted awe. The deadly trinity of Law, Best and Charlton swept opposition from its path and led Manchester United to win the FA Cup in 1963 and the League in 1965 and 1967. Had it not been for a cruel injury, Law would have also been part of the side which became the first English club to lift the European Cup.
