    at one time voted the best 'keeper in the world, gregg is regarded as a legend at manchester united because of his heroics in munich and also the role he played in the impossibly difficult period following the virtual decimation and subsequent rebuilding of the team

    An amazing player and an even more amazing human being.
    The kind of person that makes you proud just to be the same species as him.

    Having gotten himself and a small child out of the crashed plane, he went back time and again to save the lives of other players and to retrieve the bodies of his team mates.
    Two weeks later he pulled on the Manchester United Jersey to play Sheffield Wednesday and beat them 3-0 as a tribute to his fallen comrades.

    The word hero doesn't come anywhere close. God Bless Harry
