Shaelumstash said:We are at the beginning of potentially the most successful period in the clubs history. Everything is in place for us to be one of the best clubs in Europe for years to come, and our popularity worldwide is growing every week.
Despite what the deluded United obsessed media might say, we have a fantastic history which should be celebrated.
That's why I think now is the right time to honour the three most fondly remembered legends of our last gloriously successful period with a statue.
I don't want to ever forget that golden generation, and it would be a great focal point to teach new City fans about our fantastic past.
My fear is that when this generation of players go on to even greater success than the Mercer-Allison side, that the legends from the 60s and 70s will be forgotten about in the midst of time. So now is the right time to do it, to mark our glorious past so that it will never be forgotten in our glorious future.
Someone else who shall remain nameless who unveiled a statue of himself this week spoke of how great it was to see his statue before he died so could enjoy it with his family. What a fantastic honour it would be for Franny, Mike and Colin to be able to enjoy the same privilege with their children and grandchildren.
With all the negativity and wind ups on Bluemoon, I hope everyone will be honest on this, and if they agree with what I am saying, they should back it and show support for this because if there's one thing we know about the club now, they genuinely listen to the fans. So if people want this and get behind it, there's every chance it could happen.
Any suggestions on where the statue could go / any photo's people can find of the three of them together that would make a good monument would be fantastic to give the thread some momentum.
Great post and very well put across, the hair on my neck and arms were standing while reading it, reminded me of my grandad telling me about stories of yester year when he worked for manchestee liners n the 50s 60s n 70s....would love to see this and i think it's warranted, the legends deserve it and it might go a little way to reminding everyone else that we do have history!
