Football Willie Morgan

Willie Morgan

My latest video compilation is on a player who was one of the few shining lights in the darkest period of Utd's history since the war

Willie Morgan signed for Utd from Burnley in the summer of 68 following a season that saw Utd being crowned European Champions

Morgan was a wing wizard in the George Best mold and was seen as a very good addition to what was already a fearsome forward line

Unlike Best, Morgan was more a creator than a goal scorer and had a more orthodox touchline dribbling style compared to Best

It was unfortunate for Morgan that he signed just as Utd began their downward spiral however he remained a shining light during these dark times and was twice voted fans' player of the year and was serenaded with the famous "Willie Morgan on the Wing" chant

After Utd were relegated in 1974, Morgan stayed on and helped Utd gain promotion straight back to the first division however a falling out with The Doc saw Morgan leave the club to go back to Burnley in 1975

Watch around the 1:20 mark for an opposition player 5 yards away refusing to make any effort.

Never seen anything like it.
