On this day in 1986, Diego Armando Maradona did a very bad thing with his hand, then a very good thing with his left foot.

While doing both of those things, he wore this tiny Le Coq Sportif shirt, sourced by the Argentinians a matter of days before the game.

Born on this day, one of Collyhurst's finest.

Manchester United and England football team hero Nobby Stiles. Tenacious man-marker, relentless ball-winner, Wembley dancer.

Nobby was one of just three Englishmen to win both the European Cup and the World Cup, and played a crucial 'enforcer' role for Matt Busby's title-winning sides of '65 and '67.

This was photo of Manchester United before they became professional. ? Around war in Clayton. Came across it from my grandma old things. Her husband played for them then went to war

I brought my elderly father to museum last week - had an excellent tour led by Laura . She was really knowledgeable on football and altered tour a bit to take into account team that most of us supported . Would highly recommend a visit and will return when next in Manchester
My family and I were humbled to spend a short amount of time talking to this highly decorated soldier yesterday ! Although he was telling us a football related story about his time in the Army and although he was smiling as he spoke his eyes were like a window to his soul. Iโ€™m sure today for him and many others is a bitter reminder of all they sacrificed for us to have a future. Sending love to Doug and all the heroes of war โค๏ธ
Disappointing that you charge in now. Used to enjoy visiting with my son - we often bought a few items in the shop too. I wonder how the visitors from Preston in particular feel......
I am a big football fan, so you know, I just had to see this museum with my wife.George Best is in my opinion the best player in the world and what? A perfect surprise! We welcome George at the entrance to the museum! I recomend them if you will in Manchesterโšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช.
