We pay tribute to the iconic Sir Bobby Charlton as Manchester United prepare to rename Old Traffords South Stand in his honour before their Super Sunday clash against Everton… The sheer magnitude of Sir Bobby Charltons contribution to Manchester United and England is difficult to put into words, but the extraordinary numbers behind his career are a good place to start. Kyler Fackrell Jersey .After making his debut as a teenager in 1956, Charlton went on to score a club-record 249 goals in 758 games for Manchester United. Only Ryan Giggs has made more appearances, and by the time Charlton left the club in 1973, the legendary forward had won three league titles, an FA Cup, and also captained the side to their 1968 European Cup triumph over Benfica - scoring twice as they became the first ever English team to win it. As well as being a poster boy for the Busby Babes, Charlton left a momentous legacy at international level. He made his England debut just two months after surviving the Munich air disaster in 1958, and over the next three decades he scored 49 times in 106 appearances, appearing at three World Cups and lifting the trophy in 1966 - when he netted three times on Englands route to the final. Sir Bobby Charlton lifts the 1966 World Cup with his England team-mates at Wembley Charlton is one of only eight players to have made over 100 appearances for the Three Lions and, until Wayne Rooney recently broke his record, he was their top scorer too. He was respected and revered by his peers and fans across the world, and former striker Denis Law cherished the years they spent together with George Best as Uniteds fabled Holy Trinity.The game is never easy but it becomes easier when youve got players like that, Law said on a documentary to be screened on MUTV this Sunday. Bobby had a bit of everything. He was a marvellous crosser of a ball and scored a tremendous amount of goals. He had a fantastic shot, it was so powerful. I knew if he was going to shoot there was a fair chance the goalkeeper wouldnt be able to hold it, so I would follow up and invariably the guy would drop it.

He has been a director at Manchester United since 1984, a position he still holds today, and he was a key figure in the appointment of Sir Alex Ferguson in 1986. Sir Bobby Charlton in action for Manchester United against Leeds United When I first came to the club, I met the directors and said to them what I believed in, said Ferguson. I wanted to introduce a vibrant youth system: trialing, scouting and rebuilding the youth in the club.Bobby was brought up in that so he was into that 100 per cent. It takes time, you need people to have the same conviction in your philosophy and beliefs and Bobby was my best supporter in that, there is no question. What a solid human being and a person youd trust with your life. Hes been a terrific friend to me ever since I came to the club. Sir Alex Ferguson on Sir Bobby Charlton Charlton earns as many plaudits for his character as he does for his glittering playing career. Bobby is a great example in how he kept his feet on the ground and kept their humility all their life, added Ferguson. Another thing that surprised people is how shy he is. But what a solid human being and a person youd trust with your life. Hes been a terrific friend to me ever since I came to the club.Manchester United players have felt Charltons impact in the modern era too. Hes always been really approachable, always encouraging me right from a young age to when I was 39 or 40 and playing in the first team, said Giggs. He was always someone with a massive impact whether it was when I was younger or a more experienced player. He always took an interest in how the younger players played. He would always watch the youth team and reserves, and hed come on tours when we went abroad and youd see first-hand the love people all round the world had for him.David Beckham, who spent 12 years at Old Trafford between 1991 and 2003, is another United youth product to have a special connection with Charlton. I was lucky to meet Sir Bobby when I was at his soccer school at the age of 10, he said. It was a dream to meet him because he was my dads favourite player and my middle name is Robert after him. Sir Bobby Charlton presents David Beckham with his 100th England cap When you play for a club and you have ex-players there that come and talk to you and are involved with the team it means a lot, but when you have Sir Bobby Charlton, someone with that stature and experience at the club you support come to you and tell you well done, or this is how you can do something better, or this is how you can represent the club, it means so much.Nobody embodies Manchester United quite like Charlton, and Sundays unveiling at Old Trafford will be a fitting tribute to a man whose association with the club spans more than half a century. He is embedded in the club, said Beckham. He epitomises Manchester United, added Giggs. The Sir Bobby Charlton Stand ensures his presence will always be felt.Tune in to special documentary Sir Bobby - The Greatest on MUTV at 7pm on Sunday - and watch Super Sunday: Manchester United v Everton from 3.30pm on Sky Sports 1.

Its not intended to be some magical formula and doesnt apply any context, like, for example, taking injuries into account. This remedial statistical method has gone 9-5 in picks through the first three rounds. Kyle Murphy Jersey . The win puts Arsenal four points clear of Everton in fourth place with two games to play in the Premier League, a position which would qualify the club for Europes top competition for the 17th straight year. http://www.thepackersnflfanshop.com/Black-Friday-Jamaal-Williams-Jersey/ . And rest hardly led to rust for the two-time defending NBA champions. DENVER -- Patrick Roy was quite calm and even cracked a few jokes as his team went through a light workout. No signs of stress at all. Of course, the first-year Colorado Avalanche coach has been in a few pressure-packed Game 7 situations as a Hall of Fame goaltender -- 13 to be exact. His players? Not as much experience. A dozen had never been to the post-season before this year. And yet Roys hardly fretting over his teams emotional state heading into a decisive final game Wednesday night against the Minnesota Wild, with the winner moving on to face the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. On the contrary, Roys reminding his youthful team of one simple thing: Enjoy the moment. "How good is this?" Roy said. "Theyre excited about it and they should be. ... Were playing Game 7 in our building, in front of our fans." In this series, home ice is a pretty big deal. All six games in this tightly contested matchup have been decided during the waning moments, with the home team capturing each one. Wild coach Mike Yeo has a stirring pregame speech all prepared for just the occasion, a few well-chosen words to put into his players ears before they hit the ice and hear the clamour of the crowd. Care to share the highlights? "Then it wouldnt be very inspirational," Yeo joked. Minnesota will try to neutralize the noise with another sizzling start. The Wild have scored the first goal in four of the games. "(Game 7s) are the best and also the worst," Yeo said. "You have so much on the line -- the players laying it all out there, the passion and the energy of the building and the fans. Theres just so much at stake." Avs forward Maxime Talbot stressed "having fun" to rookie Nathan MacKinnon, whos tied with Zach Parise for most points (10) in the NHL playoffs so far. Talbot knows the butterflies will be present for players such as MacKinnon -- and its something to embrace. "Thats why we play the game," said Talbot, who scored twice in Game 7 of the 2009 Stanley Cup final to lift Pittsburgh to a 2-1 win over Detroit. "Thats the coolest thing about hockey. As much experience as you havve, you have to take these butterflies and turn them into excitement and energy, and thats definitely the feeling I have right now. Morgan Burnett Jersey. quot; Roy believes that Game 7 will hinge on, what else, the goalies. Semyon Varlamov won a team-record 41 games in the regular season, breaking the mark held by Roy. The goalie nicknamed "Varly" has faced a barrage of shots in this series, coming up big in several games. "Varlys always the brick out there," Talbot said. "We know hes going to make the big saves." The same can be said of Darcy Kuemper, who has a 1.53 goals- against average since stepping in for Ilya Bryzgalov in Game 2. Although Kuemper cant ever remember playing in a Game 7, he said that Mondays game -- a 5-2 win in which the Wild sealed it and extended the series by scoring two empty-net goals -- was good practice. "Now, both teams are in the situation," Kuemper said. "So theyre going to be a little bit more desperate than they were last game. Weve been through it before, so we should be pretty calm and confident with it." The intensity level is something the Wild are embracing. They know its going to be a hostile environment, but its not as if the Wild have been blown out inside the Pepsi Center. No, the Avalanche have needed to rely on some late magic, pulling Varlamov for an extra skater in Games 1 and 5, get big late goals and to send it into OT, where they found a way to win. "We feel good about the way weve been playing," Parise said. "Hopefully, we can get a win here." Colorado received a boost last game with the return of Matt Duchene from a knee injury. The teams leading scorer in the regular season is still rounding into shape, but with every shift hes getting back his quickness. "This is just another game," Duchene said. "Thats how you have to treat Game 7s." The previous time the Avs were in a Game 7 was 2003, when they were eliminated by the Wild in Roys last game. "Thats not going to have a big effect on our team," Roy said, smiling. "Because there are not that many players from then that are still with us."
