As I was watching the game today I thought that the man of the match award should be in his name. It would be a nice touch from both clubs

I remember we played them New Years day around the time he passed away at theirs and there was some sort of joint presentation/celebration on the pitch at half time.

But yeah, I agree. It's the Stanley Matthews derby, easy to forget sometimes he was a footballing one off, one of the most special and unique players of all time. Also gives us the honor of being one of only three English clubs to have one of their players win the Ballon D'or, it's Liverpool, United, Blackpool.
