Manchester Utd are the Premier League’s most successful club. They have won the Premier League a record thirteen times and the top division a totla of twenty times.

 

  • Stadium: Old Trafford
  • Stadium Capacity: 74,994
  • Location: Manchester
  • Founded: 1880 (as Newton Heath)
  • Nickname: The Red Devils
  • Manager: Jose Mourinho
  • Kit: Red shirts and socks with black shorts

Manchester was formed in 1880 but was originally called Newton Heath and played in green and yellow before they were renamed Manchester Utd in 1902 and then moved to Old Trafford in 1909. United have played in the top division for most of their history and they have only played one season (1974/75) in the second division in the last eighty years. United have won more trophies than any other club in English football. Here are the highlights:

  • League Champions: 20 times (a record)
  • FA Cup Winners: 5 times
  • League Cup Winners: 5 times
  • European Cup / Champions League: 1967/68, 1998/99 & 2007/08
  • European Cup Winners’ Cup: 1990/91
  • FIFA Club World Cup: 2008

Manchester Utd are English football's most successful team in terms of trophies won.

The Manager

Jose Mourinho is one of the most successful managers of his generation. He first became known as a manager with Porto, in his native Portugal. He won the Champions League (2004) with the Portuguese team and became famous for his celebration when his Porto team beat Manchester Utd at Old Trafford. Since then, Mourinho has won the Premier League three times with Chelsea and league titles in Spain and Italy. He has been the Manchester Utd manager since May 2016. 

Jose Mourinho and Alex Ferguson; two of football's most successful managers.

Three to Watch

Here are three Manchester Utd players to keep an eye on in the Premier League this season:

Romelu Lukaku

The Belgian striker was Manchester Utd’s top scorer with 16 goals last season. Lukaku is a strong, fast target man who has already scored over 100 Premier League goals. He is also the record goalscorer for his country. He has scored over 40 goals for Belgium and helped his country to their best-ever World Cup finish (third place) at Russia 2018.

Romelu Lukaku was Manchester Utd's top scorer last season.

Paul Pogba

Pogba was one of the stars of the French team that won the World Cup in Russia and became the first Manchester Utd player to score in a World Cup Final. Pogba is a powerful and creative central midfielder who can also score spectacular goals. Pogba will be one of United’s most important players this season.

David De Gea

De Gea is often described as one of the world’s best goalkeepers.  The Spaniard signed for Manchester Utd from Atletico Madrid in 2011 when he was just 20 years old and has now made more than 300 appearances for the club. He won the Premier League’s Golden Glove last season and has been voted Manchester Utd’s Player of the Year three times.

David De Gea won the Premier League's Golden Glove last season.

Last season

Manchester Utd finished second in the Premier League last season but were a disappointing 19 points behind their city rivals. However, with a strong defence, they were very difficult to beat and only conceded 28 goals all season. They also reached the FA Cup Final but lost 1-0 to Chelsea.

Paul Pogba won the World Cup with France and became the first Manchester Utd player to score in a World Cup Final.

Prediction 2018/19: 5th

Fans will be hoping to compete with Manchester City this season, but with few big signings this summer they may find themselves battling for a Champions League spot. United with a settled squad will need to make a strong start if they want to keep pace with the teams at the top.

I am a biggest fan of the MU. Since i was a kid, i have watched Alex Ferguson and their "gold players" by MU developed. i remember the Champions League Final in 1999 at Nou Camp, the Champions League Final, Two late goals by Teddy Sheringham and Solskajaer- the murder of the baby face. And they have also won the Champions League in 2008 when they beat Chelsea in the Penalty shootout. Ronaldo shot out of the goal but that doesn't matter, they have won. IN 2013, Sir Alex Ferguson retired but he said: I will usually watch MU play. But very sad that the coming years MU is falling down
ON 2013/2014, they finished 7th
ON 2014/2015, they finished 4th
ON 2015/2016, they finished 5th
And 2016/2017 they finished 6th
But in 2017/2018, they are better, they finished 2nd. Nowadays Sir Alex Ferguson was have a brain hemorrage and he have to go to the hostpital but luckily he has left the hostpital and watched the Champions Leauge Final in Kyiv. R.Madrid versus Liverpool.

Hello everyone!

I'm Andre from Vietnam.

Today, I'm very happy to join our Red devil's fan community.

(My English writting is quite terrible, so if you see some mistakes please correct me!)

  I have been United's fan since I was 11 years old. It's been 15 years from the first time I watched David Beckham free-kick and became a fan. 

Yes, David Beckham is the player who gets me into Manchester United, but Beck isn't my best favorite player. For me, the best Devil ever live is Wayne Rooney, even he's not United's player anymore. 

When I watch Rooney plays football, I can feel that he do it with more than 100% ability and always fight for the team. Rooney is not only caption in the game but also the leader of Red Devil.

That's why I like him the most. 

Thank you for paying attention!

"Manchester United's nickname is the 'Red Devils', and they have played at Old Trafford ever since 1910, apart from a few seasons in the 1940s when they played at Maine Road, the home of Manchester City, while Old Trafford was rebuilt. "
When we use the word "while" as a name meaning some time without specification how much, do we need "since" or "for"? For example, I say: I have left university since a while or for a while?

I'm not a Man United fan, but I admire the scotsman manager Sir Alex Ferguson
He had made it difficult for any manager that will follow him at Man Utd, Because of the success that he brought to the club and the british football in general.
I think it's impossible nowadayes for a manager to stay for that long as Sir Alex Ferguson, even Arsenals' current manager Arsene has charged for 2 decades!

Being in charge of a world-class club for 27 yers is unbelievable, thats more than a Silver Yobel
