The soul is one

No need for sugary tributes just a moment of reflection with an extract from a poem written by Harry Gregg:

’How they laughed and loved and played the game together
Played the game and gave it every ounce of life
And the crowds they throng to see such free young spirits
But good god there won’t be many coming home

The dice were cast, for some the last, the final challenge
On a snowbound ground in far off Serbia
The tie was won, the songs were sung, we sang together
But good god there won’t be many coming home

Roger Byrne, Mark Jones and Salford’s Eddie Coleman
Tommy Taylor, Geoffrey Bent and David Pegg
Duncan Edwards and Dublin’s own boy Liam Whelan
My good god there wasn’t many coming home’
