A friend of mine just texted saying that the 'You Never Walk Alone' song was first sung my Man Utd supporters after the Munich crash. My mate said he just heard it on the Ray D'arcy show here in Ireland just a few minutes ago.

Is this something else that the bindippers have robbed??

I have no idea, i would imagine that Liverpool started singing it from the Hillsbrough tragedy but i have never heard anything of Man Utd fans first singing 'you'll never walk alone'.

That is true there was a big debate about this last year! its great to know that they're singing our song!

It was sung at OT after the Munich crash but wasn't adopted, I remember talking to an older fan, he said he remembered in being sung when he was a kid.

Celtic and Liverpool sing it now cos it was sung before a friendly game beween them shortly after hillsborough

It's also sung at times by various Bundesliga sides:thumbsup:

Thing that it reminds me of most was when it was played at the end of a funeral I was at when I was younger

i think you will find that this song was being sung by these teams way before hillsborough happened and i am sure liverpool and celtic have been singing this song since i have followed football {mid 70's} , whenever these 2 teams meet they join together to sing the anthem .

It was sung first by United fans. I have read an interview with the lady who started it. Been reading a book where a Celtic fan even clearly states we were the first to sing it. I'll get you a quote if you wish? Typicial thieving swine.

Grandmother Jane Hardwick says she was left seeing red after reading a letter in a newspaper which said the song, made famous by Gerry and the Pacemakers, was first belted out on the terraces of Anfield. Jane, 61, was a teenage opera singer when many of her footballing heroes were killed in the tragic Munich air crash in 1958. And as her own special tribute to the Busby Babes, heartbroken Jane convinced her friends from New Mills Operatic Society in Derbyshire to join her in a rousing rendition of the song at one of the games following the tragedy. The tune was written for the 1945 musical Carousel, which Jane and her friends were rehearsing at the time.

"It has annoyed me so much that people think the song was first sung by the Liverpool fans. The Munich crash was so horrible and everyone was feeling down and despondent and it just seemed an appropriate song to sing. It was an emotional time and I managed to persuade my friends to join in with me.
Soon the whole ground was singing it and many people, including me, were in tears. I never dreamed it would become the anthem of our old rivals but I wanted to put the record straight about where the song originated from on the terraces."

It's believed that the first team to sing it was Borussia Dortmund, who adopted it after it was sung in the musical carousel.

fecking students? You could obviously do with a few more years in the educational system, what's your occupation 'jack of all trades'. Loser it is then.

It was where most people would have gotten the knowledge of the song started at United from.
