Write-up by Chris Towland

Most enthusiasts of English football and the Premiership in distinct would agree that Manchester United have undoubtedly had their share of ‘Highs’ in the twelve seasons given that the Premiership commenced………. and what would be regarded as a ‘Low’ by Utd followers (this sort of as finishing third behind Arsenal and Chelsea) would in truth be deemed a important ‘High’ by most other clubs!Right here are what I think about to be some of Manchester United’s key highs and lows because the inaugural Premiership period kicked off in 1992:*** Highs ***Out of a complete of just twelve seasons, Man. United have lifted the Premiership trophy no significantly less than 8 occasions and a certain large was taking the title in the very 1st Premiership time.United have attained the Premiership and F.A. Cup ‘double’ 3 instances……. in 1994, 1996 and in 1999.They have won a lot more Premiership games, won a lot more factors and suffered less defeats than any other group in the league. Manchester United have scored the best amount of objectives general considering that the Premiership began and in truth also maintain the report for the most goals scored in a single season: 97 scored in 1999-2000.United also hold the record for the greatest quantity of goals in a Premiership game which they achieved in March 1995 with a nine- victory against Ipswich……. a game exactly where Andy Cole scored five of the ambitions.*** Lows ***One latest major reduced for Manchester United came at the stop of the 2003-2004 period when they not only completed outside of the best two (a total fifteen factors behind the winners Arsenal) but also equaled their lowest ever before points complete for a time.How numerous can neglect Frenchman Eric Cantona’s notorious flying kung fu attack on a fan at Crystal palace in 1995? His kick could have looked at property in a Bruce Lee movie but it earned him an eight month suspension which a lot of contemplate was a key element in United losing the title that period to Blackburn Rovers.In 2003 there had been two key lows for Manchester United:The first was David Beckham leaving to join True Madrid. His £25 million transfer charge was excellent for the United coffers but not so great for the crew as there was no ideal alternative waiting to step into his shoes. The second was defender Rio Ferdinand, the document £30 million signing from Leeds United, becoming banned for 8 months for missing a regimen medications check. For anybody interested in a quite thorough, month by month watch of Manchester United’s twelve decades in the Premiership, I entirely suggest ‘The Breedon Book of Premiership Records’ by Breedon Guides which is offered from their site at: Towland
