Foulkes is sitting in the coffee shop of Manchester United's museum at Old Trafford, just yards away from photos and souvenirs commemorating the lives of the Busby Babes.

A huge, strong, centre-half, Bill Foulkes was a Busby Babe, who survived Munich and played top flight football for nearly twenty years.
In his early days Foulkes combined playing football with work at a coal mine, feeling that he was not good enough to make the grade.
Foulkes was United's wall of steel, who might well have been hewn out of solid rock from the coal-fields he worked in.

Of all the 682 matches Bill Foulkes played for Manchester United, there is just one that fans want to talk about when they stop him in the street.
That was the night when Foulkes, who never strayed out of his own half, raced upfield to score the goal which sealed United's spot in the European Cup final and his place in the affections of every Reds fan.
Foulkes' equaliser in the 3-3 draw in the Bernabeu helped earn United a 4-3 aggregate victory, which had looked so unlikely when Matt Busby's side had trailed 3-1 at half-time.

Foulkes told Third Sector that he had support from a large number of Labour MPs and especially from grass-roots members of the Labour Party for the change.
The draft Charities Bill, promised by the Government in last week's Queen's Speech, will be open to amendment during an eight-to-12 week pre-legislative scrutiny session by a Parliamentary committee.
If the draft Bill gets bogged down in controversy, it could prolong an already very tight Parliamentary timetable and threaten the Bill's chances of becoming law before the next election, which is widely expected to be in early 2005.

That it should never have happened is a conclusion shared by at least two of the survivors, Harry Gregg and Bill Foulkes.

 SACRAMENTO / Migden bill raises health care ante for biggest state firms / Requires 8% payout for worker benefits, or ...
Counting Migden's bill -- expected to be in print within the next few days -- 22 state legislatures have introduced bills to impose some kind of health care mandate on employers.
The rash of bills has attracted the opposition of the National Restaurant Association and the National Retail Federation, which are helping bankroll a coalition to oppose the measures.
Migden said she doubts that any of those employers would be affected by the bill because they spend more than the 8 percent threshold in her bill on health benefits for employees.

The aim of Angus MacNeil’s Bill is to regulate the award of honours to individuals and companies who have donated money to political parties, received Government contracts or sponsored Government programmes.

Foulkes, now 71, was at the heart of United's defence and was the only United player to appear in both of their European Cup semi-final legs in Madrid.
He describes "the unique bond between the clubs" and himself as the "cripple who beat Real Madrid" and still considers the goal he scored in Real's Bernabeu on May 16, 1968 as "the greatest moment of my career".
Eleven years later Foulkes and Busby's rebuilt side following the Munich tragedy were back in Madrid with a 1-0 lead from the first semi-final, but this time they clawed their way to a 3-3 draw with Foulkes scoring the winner.
