      Well i must say that i have just recently found out that Busby played for Liverpool no less than five years and watching documentary on official LFC YT channel called Us And Them Us And Them  i see that veteran LFC fans have a lot of respect for Mr. Busby, is that the general feeling about Matt Busby among Liverpool fans?

      Defo,one of those what could of been moments.Not just because of playing career cut short but Busby being on our coaching staff and the clueless directors getting rid of him then he took the united managers job.History changing.

      A certain age of Liverpool fans properly found out about Busby playing and captaining the club around the time of his death and the minutes silence they had throughout the Premier League, think the club put something in the programme and there was something in the Echo as they were worried the minutes silence might be disrupted.

      TBH the rivalry is as raw as anything in football, but the change in how we view them changed in their treble season, the night they were playing Juve in the semi of the Champions League, we got beat by Leicester in the league at Anfield 1-0, yet majority of fans were more concerned with the manc's result in Turin and a lot of fanzines, this was pre-forum days, had pieces from fans going on about we had to start supporting the team more and stop getting worked up about man u.

      Who knows why is that good, maybe Shankly would never join us if Busby stayed.

      Not saying it was good or bad,more having non football people making footy decisions.But no denying Busby was a visionary coach that we got rid of.F***ing suits.Don't forget when Shankly arrived he had to fight to pick the team over the directors.
