    UPDATE: Fixed the problem on v12.2.2 which had been screwing up player faces! (Download link below)

    Hello! This is the Man United Challenge, 10 teams from the illustrious history of Manchester United Football Club pitted against one another in a unique competition based in the British Virgin Islands.


    This project began in FM10 with only 9 teams, but has steadily improved since then, and now features a Cup competition (the 10 league teams plus the 'real' Man Utd) and end of season awards.


    If you're a Man United fan, you've probably wondered, "which side is the greatest in the club's history?" You've probably got an idea of who you think would receive that honour, whether it's the Busby Babes or Fergie's Fledglings, so I invite you to try this database and see for yourself who really is the greatest, and if you can beat the other great sides of our club's great history.


    A lot of these players have long since died, and since we can never truly pit them against each other in real life, but at least we can use FM as a medium to give us some sort of idea of how these sides might have faced up against each other.


    Here are the teams:


    1. 1909 Manchester United.
    Ernest Mangnall lead his team of local lads and Scottish imports to United's first league title in 1907-08, and an FA Cup the following season. This is what the team looked like at the end of the 1908-09 season.







    2. 1948 Manchester United.
    Only 3 years after taking charge of the club, Matt Busby lead United to an FA Cup win against Stanley Matthews' Blackpool. Johnny Carey leads the ageing squad, but a youthful dawn is on the horizon. This is the club at the end of the 1947-48 season.








    3. 1957 Manchester United.
    This is the famous "Busby Babes", the culmination of a generation of work from Matt Busby and his right hand man, Jimmy Murphy. The back-to-back league winners are present at the end of the 1956-57 season.








    4. 1968 Manchester United.
    The last of Busby's great sides, and the first United side to win the European Cup. Best, Law and Charlton are the club's iconic names at the end of the 1967-68 season.








    5. 1977 Manchester United.
    Known for their propensity to attack, Tommy Docherty's management reinvigorated the club after a post-Busby decline in the early 1970's. This is the side that won the FA Cup to deny Liverpool a historic Treble. The squad is that of the 1976-77 season.








    6. 1985 Manchester United.
    Despite failing to win the league, Ron Atkinson's United have carved out a niche as a cup winning club. 2 FA Cup wins in 3 years, thanks, in no small part, to a young Mark Hughes and Bryan Robson in his prime, show that the 1985 side can be a force to be reckoned with. This is the club at the end of the 1984-85 season.








    7. 1994 Manchester United.
    This is the first of Alex Ferguson's great sides. A blend of youth and continental experience has seen Fergie's Fledglings propelled into the big time following a first Premier League and FA Cup double win for the club. The club is shown at the end of the 1993-94 season.








    8. 1999 Manchester United.
    This side was the first in England to complete a Premier League, FA Cup and European Cup Treble. We all know who they are, but I just like writing it... Treble. This is the 1998-99 season.








    9. 2003 Manchester United.
    Despite being something of a 'barren' period in terms of trophy hauls, this side is regarded as one of the club's better teams in terms of the talent it had at its disposal. The club is shown at the end of the 2002-03 season.








    10. 2008 Manchester United.
    Ferguson's latest great side, this is the 2008 European and league double winners and they are at the end of the 2007-08 season.

    I've put a lot of work into this, researching alone took over 2 months, but I'm a stickler for accuracy and I tried hard to re-create the teams, players and staff as accurately as possible. It's not perfect, I'm human, so if you see a glaring error, or anything out of place or something that you think needs changing (however small), then let me know and I'll fix it.

    Hey, cheers for replying

    Values are low in part because I left the reputation at the default (i.e. 0), as I didn't want to faff around with that. I also think being in the British Virgin Islands might be part of it, but I'm not 100% sure. I don't think it detracts from the game too much, though
