    Manchester United Football Club is an English professional football club, based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, that plays in the Premier League. Founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, the club changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to Old Trafford in 1910.
    Manchester United have won many trophies in English football, including a record 20 League titles, a record 11 FA Cups, four League Cups and a record 20 FA Community Shields. The club has also won three European Cups, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup. In 1998?99, the club won a continental treble of the Premier League, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League, an unprecedented feat for an English club.

    The 1958 Munich air disaster claimed the lives of eight players. In 1968, under the management of Matt Busby, Manchester United was the first English football club to win the European Cup. Alex Ferguson won 28 major honours, and 38 in total, from November 1986 to May 2013,[4][5] when he announced his retirement after 26 years at the club. Fellow Scot David Moyes was appointed as his replacement on 9 May 2013.

    Manchester United is the third-richest football club in the world for 2011?12 in terms of revenue, with an annual revenue of ?395.9 million, and the second most valuable club in 2013, valued at $3.165 billion. It is one of the most widely supported football teams in the world. After being floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1991, the club was purchased by Malcolm Glazer in May 2005 in a deal valuing the club at almost ?800 million. In August 2012, Manchester United made an initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange.

    Newton Heath initially played on a field on North Road, close to the railway yard; the original capacity was about 12,000, but club officials deemed the facilities inadequate for a club hoping to join The Football League. Some expansion took place in 1887, and in 1891 Newton Heath used its minimal financial reserves to purchase two grandstands, each able to hold 1,000 spectators. Although attendances were not recorded for many of the earliest matches at North Road, the highest documented attendance was approximately 15,000 for a First Division match against Sunderland on 4 March 1893. A similar attendance was also recorded for a friendly match against Gorton Villa on 5 September 1889.

    In June 1893, after the club was evicted from North Road by its owners, Manchester Deans and Canons, who felt it was inappropriate for the club to charge an entry fee to the ground, secretary A. H. Albut procured the use of the Bank Street ground in Clayton. It initially had no stands, by the start of the 1893?94 season, two had been built; one spanning the full length of the pitch on one side and the other behind the goal at the "Bradford end". At the opposite end, the "Clayton end", the ground had been "built up, thousands thus being provided for". Newton Heath's first league match at Bank Street was played against Burnley on 1 September 1893, when 10,000 people saw Alf Farman score a hat-trick, Newton Heath's only goals in a 3?2 win. The remaining stands were completed for the following league game against Nottingham Forest three weeks later.[74] In October 1895, before the visit of Manchester City, the club purchased a 2,000-capacity stand from the Broughton Rangers rugby league club, and put up another stand on the "reserved side" (as distinct from the "popular side"). However, weather restricted the attendance for the Manchester City match to just 12,000.[75]

    When the Bank Street ground was temporarily closed by bailiffs in 1902, club captain Harry Stafford raised enough money to pay for the club's next away game at Bristol City and found a temporary ground at Harpurhey for the next reserves game against Padiham. Following financial investment, new club president J.H. Davies paid ?500 for the erection of a new 1,000-seat stand at Bank Street. Within four years, the stadium had cover on all four sides, as well as the ability to hold approximately 50,000 spectators, some of whom could watch from the viewing gallery atop the Main Stand.

    However, following Manchester United's first league title in 1908 and the FA Cup a year later, it was decided that Bank Street was too restrictive for Davies' ambition; in February 1909, six weeks before the club's first FA Cup title, Old Trafford was named as the home of Manchester United, following the purchase of land for around ?60,000. Architect Archibald Leitch was given a budget of ?30,000 for construction; original plans called for seating capacity of 100,000, though budget constraints forced a revision to 77,000. The building was constructed by Messrs Brameld and Smith of Manchester. The stadium's record attendance was registered on 25 March 1939, when an FA Cup semi-final between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Grimsby Town drew 76,962 spectators.

    Bombing in the Second World War destroyed much of the stadium; the central tunnel in the South Stand was all that remained of that quarter. After the war, the club received compensation from the War Damage Commission in the amount of ?22,278. While reconstruction took place, the team played its "home" games at Manchester City's Maine Road ground; Manchester United was charged ?5,000 per year, plus a nominal percentage of gate receipts. Later improvements included the addition of roofs, first to the Stretford End and then to the North and East Stands. The roofs were supported by pillars that obstructed many fans' views, and they were eventually replaced with a cantilevered structure. The Stretford End was the last stand to receive a cantilevered roof, completed in time for the 1993?94 season.[33] First used on 25 March 1957 and costing ?40,000, four 180-foot (55 m) pylons were erected, each housing 54 individual floodlights. These were dismantled in 1987 and replaced by a lighting system embedded in the roof of each stand, which remains in use today.

    The Taylor Report's requirement for an all-seater stadium lowered capacity at Old Trafford to around 44,000 by 1993. In 1995, the North Stand was redeveloped into three tiers, restoring capacity to approximately 55,000. At the end of the 1998?99 season, second tiers were added to the East and West Stands, raising capacity to around 67,000, and between July 2005 and May 2006, 8,000 more seats were added via second tiers in the north-west and north-east quadrants. Part of the new seating was used for the first time on 26 March 2006, when an attendance of 69,070 became a new Premier League record. The record was pushed steadily upwards before reaching its peak on 31 March 2007, when 76,098 spectators saw Manchester United beat Blackburn Rovers 4?1, with just 114 seats (0.15 percent of the total capacity of 76,212) unoccupied. In 2009, reorganisation of the seating resulted in a reduction of capacity by 255 to 75,957. Manchester United has the second highest average attendance of European football clubs only behind Borussia Dortmund.

    Ryan Joseph Giggs, OBE (born Ryan Joseph Wilson; 29 November 1973) is a Welsh footballer who plays for Manchester United. Giggs made his first appearance for the club during the 1990?91 season and has been a regular player since the 1991?92 season. He established himself as a left winger during the 1990s, and continued in this position well into the 2000s, though he has been increasingly used in a deeper playmaking role in his latter years. Giggs is known for his tireless running, ball possession and ability to create goalscoring opportunities for those around him.

    Giggs is the most decorated player in English football history. He also holds the club record for competitive appearances. During his time at United, he has won 13 Premier League winner's medals, four FA Cup winner's medals, three League Cup winner's medals and two Champions League winner's medals. He has two runner-up medals from the Champions League, three FA Cup finals and two League Cup finals, as well as being part of the team five times when it finished second in the Premier League. In recent years, Giggs has captained the team on numerous occasions, particularly in the 2007?08 season when regular captain Gary Neville was ruled out with various injuries.

    Giggs has a number of personal achievements. He was the first player in history to win two consecutive PFA Young Player of the Year awards (1992 and 1993), though he did not win the PFA Player of the Year award until 2009. He is the only player to have played and scored in every season of the Premier League. He is the only remaining player in the Premier League who played in the old First Division. He was elected into the PFA Team of the Century in 2007, the Premier League Team of the Decade in 2003, as well as the FA Cup Team of the Century. Giggs holds the record for the most assists in Premier League history, with 271.

    At international level, Giggs played for the Welsh national team prior to his retirement from international football on 2 June 2007, and was once the youngest player to ever represent his country. Giggs was named one of the three overaged players for the Great Britain team to compete at 2012 Summer Olympics, and was subsequently named as the team's captain.

    In addition to the many honours Giggs has received within football such as being named in the Football League 100 Legends (the last active player in the list), he was appointed an OBE in the Queen's 2007 Birthday Honours List, and was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame in 2005, for his services to English Football. He was named as BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2009. On 31 January 2011, Giggs was named Manchester United's greatest ever player by a worldwide poll conducted by United's official magazine and website. On 10 October 2011, Giggs was honoured with the 2011 Golden Foot Award.

    Sir Alexander Chapman "Alex" Ferguson, CBE (born 31 December 1941) is a former Scottish football manager and player who managed Manchester United from 1986 to 2013. His time at the club has led to Ferguson being regarded as one of the most admired and respected managers in the history of the game.

    Ferguson managed East Stirlingshire and St. Mirren before a highly successful period as manager of Aberdeen. After briefly managing Scotland following the death of Jock Stein, he was appointed manager of Manchester United in November 1986.
    Ferguson is the longest serving manager of Manchester United, overtaking Sir Matt Busby's record on 19 December 2010, eventually completing more than 26-and-a-half years as the club's manager. He has won many awards and holds many records including winning Manager of the Year most times in British football history. In 2008, he became the third British manager to win the European Cup on more than one occasion. He was knighted in 1999 for his services to the game and also holds the Freedom of the City of Aberdeen.

    On 8 May 2013, Ferguson announced his retirement as manager of Manchester United.

  3. Part Two - First Impressions

    The Transfer of Marouane Fellaini was fantastic, i never see a player like him. He are very dangerous in the penalty area and win so many high balls in midfield. He will be my Box to Box Midfielder and i hope he do well. I love the way which United work on the transfer market all the years and i will do it like Sir Alex and try to grow our own youth players to push in the First Team. But if i want beat the others i also must buy high quality players, but i prefer to keep this team together. I have some Players that i would see in our shirt, and i try my best to sign them at Old Trafford. I look at the Squad a long time because i want to win this competition and i think we need a good Defender, Phil Jagielka was my deired candidate for our cebtral Defence. In Midfield i am very happy and i think we need no players because there are so many Talents in our club, i will push them and create a new Giggs, Beckham or someone else. The only Midfielder i am interrested to sign in was Ross Barkley from Everton. A fantastic Player with a lot of space to getting more better soon. In our Offence we have very high quality players but we play in 4 Tournaments so i am thinking about sign in Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund. His contract end's next year and i think we can get him for a price around 15 Million ?, if i bet in winter.

    I want to replace Sir Alex as greatest manager ever lived! 27 Years minimum 14 Times champion, 3 Champions League and a lot of Cup winnings. Also i want to find a welsh player who play more games for United then Giggs and win the world cup with Scotland one time

    Not much then! Good luck

  15. Definitely will follow this one because I'm a United fan myself.... But, why would you go for Jagielka ? there are 5 CBs in United squad. I'd recommend get rid of Rio and that's it. Btw, will you sell Javier Hernandez ? because there are too much strikers for a 4-2-3-1 formation. Oh, and these are the players I'd recommend to be added to United squad :GK : Butland/Akinfeev (Choose one only. Butland for those HG rules, but Akinfeev's contract ends in 2014).LB : Shaw (Or, you could stay with Fabio-Buttner).CB/BPD : Daniele Rugani, Balanta,Doria,Shawcross (Go for one of them ONLY if you already sell Rio).RB : Clyne, Abate.CDM ( for those Carrick roles) : G.Thorne, Veratti (Thorne's contract will be expired in 2014)CM (for those Fellaini roles) : Zuculini, Gaston Gil Romero (Zuculini is a free agent)Wingers : Brandt (His contract will be expired in 2014)CAM : - (You've got Kagawa,Rooney, and Januzaj. Why would you need anybody else ? If you sold Rooney already, go for Mata/Muller/Max Meyer)ST : - (You've got RvP, Welbeck, and Chicharito. Go for Lewy/Giovinco ONLY if you decided to sell RvP)
