Subject: Jackie Blanchflower dies of cancer To: MUFC@LISTSERV.INDIANA.EDU BUSBY BABE JACKIE LOSES CANCER BATTLE Manchester United Munich air crash survivor Jackie Blanchflower has died at the age of 65 after a long battle against cancer. The Belfast-born centre-half, younger brother of Tottenham star Danny, won 12 Northern Ireland caps. He made his debut for his country in 1954 in the same side as his brother. His career was cut short by the 1958 Munich disaster, when United's plane crashed on take-off, killing eight of the legendary Busby Babes. Jackie joined United as an amateur in May 1949 and turned professional a year later. He was badly injured in the 1958 air crash which claimed 23 lives in all. After the crash, he was unable to continue playing and retired in June 1959 to become an accountant. He was a popular after-dinner speaker and two weeks ago, was amongst the guests at the Munich testimonial game at Old Trafford. Fellow Busby Babe Bill Foulkes was among the first to pay tribute to Blanchflower, whose closest footballing friends, Tommy Taylor and David Pegg, were two of the eight United players who died in the crash. Foulkes last saw Blanchflower at the Munich Tribute game at Old Trafford last Tuesday. "We had a private chat but he wasn't very well," he said. "Jackie was a brilliant footballer, capable of filling in for Duncan Edwards in midfield and Tommy Taylor in attack. "His rib cage was badly damaged at Munich at he never played again." Foulkes remembers Blanchflower as an outgoing member of Busby's squad, a skill he put to good use on the after-dinner speaking circuit. "Jackie was a fun-loving character, a little bit more outgoing than his brother Danny," he added. "He was a first-class man and footballer. He will be sadly missed." mfl Blanchflower's former Northern Ireland team-mate Billy Bingham expressed his shock at the death of a man he has known since they were children. "We lived in the same district of Belfast and both played for Orange Field Star, a local team which Jackie's mother ran," said Bingham, who later went on to manage his country. "We played schoolboy internationals together and though our careers took different paths we always came together for Northern Ireland games." Bingham revealed he still has a team picture on his wall, taken as a 12-year-old, with him and Blanchflower together. "Danny was five years older and because of that Jackie was in his shadow a little bit. "But he came out of that and was very much his own man, a fun-loving guy who would definitely have played in the 1958 World Cup had it not been for the Munich crash. "I haven't seen Jackie for quite a while but we go back such a long way that this news comes as a huge shock. "My thoughts go out to his wife Jean." PA Sporting

Date: Wed, 02 Sep 1998 23:24:11 -0400 From: L Harvey Subject: Jesper shines and Jordi is Man-of-the-Match Manchester United Reserves 4 Aston Villa Reserves 0 Just got back from the reserve game at Old Trafford and an excellent game it was. The subject line sums up the game - we were witness to an excellent debut from our new signing and (believe it or not) the Man-of-the-Match was Jordi Cruyff, who had an excellent game, setting up all four goals. In front of a larger than usual crowd (it looked around 5-6000), a very efficient United side controlled the game against a Villa team with very few ideas. The scoring began about 20 minutes into the first half when Jordi Cruyff forced an own goal from one of the Villa players. Soon after this, Jordi was active again, setting up Mark Wilson's first goal. The other two goals came in the second half, another from Mark Wilson and a final goal from Jonathan Greening, both of which resulted from some excellent football from Jordi. Jesper Blomqvist played for most of the game and was very impressive. He is fast, agile and strong (much stronger than he looks), not afraid to go in for the tackle and impressive tackling back. He linked up well with the midfield and forwards, especially with Jordi Cruyff, and showed some very skilful touches. He fully deserved the standing ovation he received from the crowd when he left the pitch, and I look forward to seeing him play for the first team. It was good to see Raimond back, looking strong and reliable and also to see Terry Cooke back on the pitch after his cruciate ligament injury. Like Keane, he looks like he has some way to go until he is fully match fit, but the signs are there that the lad is on the way back to a full recovery. Of the youngsters who were playing, I particularly impressed with Mark Wilson - who carried on where he left off in the Testimonial game. David May had a shaky first half, but settled down in the second half and looked much more like his old self. Jonathan Greening looks like a good buy from York. But the two stars of the evening were Blomqvist and Cruyff. It would be good to see Cruyff transfer this sort of form into the Premiership. Teams United: Raimond Van Der Gouw, Michael Clegg, Danny Higginbotham, David May, Ronnie Wallwork (Russell Best), Paul Teather, Terry Cooke, Mark Wilson, Jonathan Greening, Jordi Cruyff, Jesper Blomqvist (David Healy). Sub (not used): Jamie Wood Villa: Michael Oakes, Ben Petty, Tommy Jaszczun, Lee Collins (sent off at about 80 minutes), Lloyd Samuel, Riccardo Scimeca, Fabio Ferraresi, Aaron Lescott, Richard Walker, Darren Byfield, Simon Grayson.
