Telegram boy: The Belfast Boy in the words of United scout Bob Bishop

In May 1961 Bob Bishop, Manchester United's Northern Irish scout, sent a telegram to manager Matt Busby which read simply

'I think I have found you a genius'.

Seven years later and wearing United's famous number seven shirt the mercurial George Best scored the breakthrough goal in extra time of the European Cup Final. Thanks in no small part to Best's starring role, Busby finally won the trophy the pursuit of which had proved so costly to the people of Manchester ten years earlier.

The headline in the Belfast Telegraph the day after the final read: Bewitching George Best Makes History For Manchester United.
