Peter McParland first goal was a gem.  One of many players who gave you 100 percent effort.

Extremely sad to realise that 7 of these fine Man Utd players were to lose their lives at Munich less than 12 months later.

This was a very very talented united team. Back when football was football and it didn't have no diving and silly free kicks. Just pure football

Neither team strings more than three passes together.. How the game has developed in sixty years!

It was abit more Long ball in they days, i've seen clips of that Man Utd side playing short passing. Check Real Maadrid ofd that time amazing passing, English teams with more British players then as now are Direct in their play.

You can tell from this what good players Tommy Taylor and Duncan Edwards were. And I must say, Jackie Sewell looked to be a good player too.

It's weird to think Liverpool were not even in the Premiership in those days

In 1957 Bobby Charlton still had a long way to go to acquire the stupendous ball driving that he later developed in the early 1960s. The one in which he drove the ball with his body in vertical posture, driving and dribbling forward without seeing the ball, peripherally looking to the field in a 180° total vision. Charlton was like Samson in reverse, he grew  stronger as he was losing hair.

So much goods in those simpler times, I am just a 19 years old bloke but I do like the values and the lack of shit we have in football nowadays that is shown in this. I am a football fan but those simpler times make you wonder.

@bl4ck0p well yea you seem to forget the pitches were bad then and the balls heavy, the busby babes could play a short passing game as seen in many clips, but in these days they was a 5 man foward line so the attacks came from the final 3rd thats why there was alot of long balls to the final 3rd, the two cm they had to defend and attack but from deeper than a cm today. Have you heard of duncan edwards

i've heard quite a lot actually... i'm a die-hard united fan and from what i heard/read this team was quite at the time the greatest team to emerge in England, and quite possibly the best young team the world has ever seen. I am aware this was far from their greatest match but it's all we have :F thanks once again mate

This is the only full match footage of the busby babes, sadly you don't get to see the best of duncan edwards as after 7 minutes he had to move to center back so his attacking skills and foward drives are not on show. but he did have a few moments where he showed skill and grace to open the play up

I remember hearing the news of the Munich air crash that ended the lives of six of the men who played in this match--Roger Byrne, Eddie Colman, Duncan Edwards, Liam Whelan, Tommy Taylor and David Pegg--and ended the football careers of two more--Jackie Blanchflower and Johnny Berry. Three other survivors of the Munich crash who were able to continue their careers also played in this match-- Ray Wood, Bill Foulkes and Bobby Charlton. God bless all 11 of them.

Up to this point in history Villa were undoubtedly bigger than Man Utd. Since then ...well the less said the better.

Over rated would be my view. They were a good team, of course, but the tragedy has led to them to be painted as being far better than they actually were. Villa, here, were, the better side, for example.

BBC commentator: "That was a fair charge, but unfortunately their heads have collided." And he repeatedly insisted that this was just an unfortunate accident, one of those things that happens in football. Then he continually criticized United fans for booing McParland when he touched the ball. All rubbish. The Laws of the Game then in force did indeed allow shoulder charges on the goalkeeper, but not an assault that knocks a goalkeeper unconscious.

@hpy999 well hes right edwards was such a threat in the box and outside it, so for him to take the corner and taylor scoring does not mean he was wrong that edwards should have been in the box. have you heard alot about how good edwards was i made most of the videos on here about him on my other channel thetoon99
Report spam or abuse
Several points to make 1. Amazing "shoulder charge" which was considered legal. I remember when shoulder charges were OK, but head to head? 2. The method of dealing with concussions have changed (there was a second collision in the second half). They seemed to think forcing the man to his feet and stimulating him as much as possible was good medicine. I think not! 3. Edwards was disappointing (out of position). But Tommy Taylor - he looked the complete centre-forward. Big, fast, good control.

@G1S1W No, I gave up after 10 or 15 minutes. The pass completion rate must have been under 50%.. they're just randomly hoofing the ball all over the place.

That BBC commentator criticized Duncan Edwards for taking the corner at about 83 minutes. He said Edwards would be more useful stationed in front of the goal. Edwards takes the corner and Tommy Taylor promptly scored from it for United's only goal. BBC commentator is made to look foolish but no admission comes from him about how wrong he was. Edwards was singularly useful wherever he stationed himself.

@G1S1W Thank you so much for posting this great FA Cup classic from 1957. It really was a great wide-open match to watch. The Busby Babes were really a very talented side with a lot of skill and flair but Peter McParland's two goals was the difference in Aston Villa's victory. I hope you post more FA Cup final matches from the past. Cheers!

Notice the great William Eric Houghton managing Villa. When asked who the greatest player he had ever seen was, he replied without hesitation, "Billy Walker." To Houghton's generation the media hype that Man Utd courted was ridiculous - a bit like the hype Simon Cowell tries to generate around singers today. Context is a wonderful thing.

Players like Byrne helping opponents when they are injured, players not appealing every single throw-in, corner, possible penalty etc. when it's obviously not their ball .... no rolly-polly injury fakes, no flashing of imaginary cards (not that they used them !) to get opponents into trouble .... ooh things aren't wot they used to be !! Did Sir Matt come on, at the Ray Wood injury, with a cigarette in his hand ??!!

This was Villa's seventh win (a record) compared to Man Utd's two at the time. Historically Villa are a MUCH bigger and more famous club than Man Utd. Villa created the world's first league and were the most trophied club for over seventy unbroken years. Unfortunately Man Utd cashed in on all the sympathy after the air crash and became a club that used the money and media interest generated to build a "brand". They are one of the first "financial doping" clubs of English football.

More points. 4. Blanchflower was pretty good in goal. Another player with a tragic story, watching his brother get fame and glory. 5. Ray Wood really got into the game in the second half - seemed to have shrugged off his grogginess. Maybe they should have put him back in goal earlier? 6. Good to see Charlton with hair. I remember him well in 66, and it was definitely comb-over time! 7. If Edwards had lived, who would have captained England in 66? Would he have been an English Beckenbauer?
