Mr Monkey at Old Trafford

"Lots of people stop to look at these"

Mr Monkey decided to go to his seat, so he set off back to the south stand. On the way, he passed the monuments to the United players who died in the 1958 plane crash in Munich. There's a clock with the date of the crash on it and a plaque with the names of the players who died. Many people think the clock is fixed to show the time of the crash, but it does actually tell the actual time, not the crash time, as anyone can see by looking at it at any time other than four minutes past three in the afternoon.

You can read about the Munich air crash at the Munich58 website, and at the BBC website.
