Think how many titles we would have by now if not for Munich.

And European cups. My dad was fond of saying that we would have picked up that pot by 1960 - even with the great Real Madrid team of that era, had Munich not happened. Santiago Bernabeau believed it. Real Madrid offered help after Munich, as did Liverpool. We tend to forget these things but the league - under that shit Hardaker - rebuffed any help from Real and went as far as barring us from entering the 1958-59 competition after UEFA extended an invitation.
