Lets get Jimmy recognised officially for what he did for United. https://www.change.org/p/manchester-united-football-club-makejimmymurphyproud You won’t hear the Stetford end singing his name You won’t find he’s scored in a United game, You won’t see his name on the shirts of the fans You won’t find his name, on any of the stands. The unseen hero of a time long ago When the body of United lay there in the snow With tears in his eyes, he then made a vow I’ll make you great again, someday, somehow, I’ll carry you with me, wherever we roam, He cradled the pieces, and carried them home. His first stop, the hospital, where the wounded lay, Where Big Dunc would ask him “what time do we play” Where Sir Matt lay lifeless, his body was broken “carry the flag onwards” the only words spoken, With the tragedy raw, breaking his heart, He stood as he watched all he loved fall apart Those wondrous lads he had nurtured, had trained Eight of them dead, two never playing again. His head was still full of this sad devastation, The loss of eight heroes had shocked the whole nation, Yet this man insisted, that whilst eight were gone, To honour their memory, the club must go on, So with the few he had, and despite all the sorrow, He did what he needed to, looked to tomorrow The first step were small, and thirteen days later Sheffield Wednesday at home, the passion grew greater The hunger, the spirit, it grew and it grew, The passion of one man, would carry it through Every week the team played, and they’d honour the dead Whilst Sir Matt lay there helpless in a hospital bed With the love of United entrenched in his heart If Sir Matt couldn’t do it, then he’d make the start And the road to recovery, though long and so slow, Began late one night in the cold Munich snow, A man took a club, with a tear in his eye, And made it a promise, that it would not die, And the promise was kept, and the team still lives on, Though the hero that saved us, has long since passed on, There are some who remember, and some who’ve been told Of the man who took United that night from the cold His name if you don’t know was Jimmy Murphy, The hero of Munich, who’s name you won’t see Ian gibson 2018.
