As the world's biggest and richest club, Manchester United reach a global fanbase.

Part of the attraction for fans around the world has been the football luminaries, such as George Best and Sir Bobby Charlton, who have graced the Old Trafford turf in a Manchester United shirt over the years.

Recently, Manchester United have continued to attract or develop some of the game's biggest names, with England stalwarts such as Paul Scholes and David Beckham having been regular fixtures in the Reds line-up.

The Manchester United team, past and present, reads like a who's who of world football.

It is only fitting that a great team should grace a great stadium. And with Old Trafford's recent development and the closure of Wembley, the ground is easily the largest in English football, holding in excess of 60,000 fans.

Despite this capacity, the demand to see United in action is so great that tickets are hard to come by.

But it isn't only Manchester United fans who flock to Old Trafford. The standard of the ground is such that it regularly hosts high-profile games, most notably, the Champions League Final and Great Britain rugby league games.

Rock fans have also made use of the Reds's facilities, watching a number of high-profile acts at the ground.

But it's football that will forever be synonymous with the Reds famous ground - and with good reason.

The last decade has seen Manchester United under the shrewd leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson maintain a virtual stranglehold on the Premiership crown.

Manchester United has won the league no fewer than 18 times in their history. They are also Cup Kings too, winning the FA cup 11 times, the league cup 4 times, as well as winning the European Super Cup, European Cup Winner's Cup, and 3 times being crowned European Cup champions.

Manchester United has long become a name associated with success both on and off the pitch.

As club profits continue to grow, Manchester United have become one of the richest sports clubs on the planet.

With supporters club branches on every continent, it's hard to go any where in the world and not see somebody wearing the famous red shirt of Manchester United.

Hope Alien will sticky this info later.
Though written in 2006 so no Roy Keane yet.

Ex-United players that have moved on to become managers.

Written by Simon Stone (MARCH 22, 2006)

STEVE BRUCE (1987-1996): Took his first steps in management with Sheffield United in 1998, then swiftly moved on to Huddersfield, Wigan and Crystal Palace. Left Selhurst Park in acrimonious fashion after Birmingham targeted him as the replacement for Trevor Francis in 1991. Took Blues into the Premier League but after a heavy FA Cup defeat is struggling to keep his job.

MARTIN POWELL (1971-1983): Stylish and well-respected Scotland centre-half whose authoritative nature appeared to make him a natural for the management game. Lasted four months at Burnley.

SIR BOBBY CHARLTON (1956-1973): Arguably the finest English player of all time proved to be an unmitigated disaster as a manager. Claimed he was not given the resources to make a decent job of it at Preston but was never lured back into management following his departure after a single season.

STEVE COPPELL (1975-1983): After a knee injury cut his playing career short at just 28, Coppell turned his attention to management. Steered Crystal Palace into the FA Cup final and then third place in the old First Division - the Eagles' highest ever - the following season. It was the first of four stints in charge at Selhurst Park in a career which has seen him move to Manchester City (for only six games), Brentford and Brighton. Now at Reading and about to steer the Royals into the top flight for the first time.

PADDY CRERAND (1962-1971): A key figure in United's 1968 European Cup triumph, Crerand lasted five months at Northampton before getting the bullet and, like Charlton, never managed again.

MARK HUGHES (1983-86, 1988-95): Hughes was never tipped as a manager by Ferguson but has taken to the game with ease. Took Wales into the Euro 2004 play-offs. Took over at Blackburn shortly afterwards, steering Rovers away from danger in his first season. Currently in contention for a Champions League spot.

BRIAN KIDD (1967-1974): Another European Cup winner who proved to be a poor manager. Got itchy feet in 1998 after spending seven years as Sir Alex Ferguson's highly-rated assistant. Took command at Blackburn but dismissed six months later.

BRYAN ROBSON (1981-94): United's inspirational leader under Ron Atkinson and Ferguson. There are two schools of thought on his stint at Middlesbrough - he either spent lots and achieved little (relegation and two losing finals) or he laid the platform for the Teessiders to become an established Premiership outfit. Kept West Brom up in extraordinary fashion last year but back in trouble again this season.

GORDON STRACHAN (1984-89): Scotland international who won the FA Cup with United and the title of the pre-Premiership era with Leeds. Sacked after five years at when the Sky Blues lost top-flight status, then enjoyed success at Southampton - reaching the 2003 Cup final - before resigning to spend more time with his family. Now at Celtic, has recovered from a humiliating Champions League exit to Artmedia Bratislava, and, after winning his first trophy on Sunday in the CIS Insurance Cup, is set to clinch the Scottish Premier League.

NOBBY STILES (1960-71): Along with Charlton, one of only two Englishmen to have won the World Cup and European Cup, he replaced his former England and United team-mate at Preston, with limited success. After a brief stint in Vancouver, returned to England to take over as manager of West Brom. Sacked after five months, having gained just three wins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken to us exclusively about how his team is shaping up ahead of Saturday’s pre-season friendly against Aston Villa.

The Reds have been given an extra week to prepare for our Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on 19 September.

The Villans are also out of action as they were set to face Manchester City and so the sides will convene at Villa Park tomorrow for what is to be our only preparation for the new campaign – and you can watch the full match on MUTV from 22:00 BST.

Ole had some good news on the injury front, revealing that Luke Shaw is set to play after missing the back-end of last season with an ankle problem.

Our trip to the West Midlands comes a little too soon for Axel Tuanzebe, although the homegrown centre-back is approaching a first-team return in the coming weeks.

“For me, Luke is looking really good in training. He has come back, looking strong, and will play in the friendly against Villa,” Ole told us.

“Then Axel is getting closer as well. In a few weeks’ time, I guess he will be with us training full-time and hopefully we’ll be able to give him games quickly.”

While it’s been under four weeks since our 2019/20 campaign drew to a close in Cologne, Solskjaer sees the contest against Dean Smith’s side as vital for match fitness.

Ten Reds played international matches over the last week and they could be involved on Saturday – with fans set to get the chance to see Donny van de Beek in a United shirt for the first time.

Ole added that the friendly was also an opportunity for those who didn’t feature for their countries to rack up some game-time.

“It’s going to be a game to give players minutes,” Solskjaer added.

“Some have trained more than others and some will be more ready than others. Some played international games, which actually sometimes you think you don’t really want that but some of them have got valuable minutes there.

“We’ll give the others minutes against Villa so they can all start on a decent level because it’s going to be a long season.”

Of course, before any other season the Reds would be coming off the back of five or six friendlies, played in various countries throughout the world.

But this season – already shortened by one month from the usual August to May cycle – is unlike any other and Solskjaer says he and his players are going to have to adjust as best they can.

“Then again, it’s the world we live in. That’s the reality of it, no point arguing or discussing it or being miserable or moaning about it. This is the reality.

“We’re going to make the most of it. Of course, the first few games are going to be important to give as many players minutes as well because it’s such a long season.

“We’re going to need most of them throughout the season.”

Paul Pogba is back in training but remains a doubt for Manchester United's Premier League opener against Crystal Palace on Saturday 19 September.

The France international was forced to withdraw from his country's squad for the recent UEFA Nations League matches after testing positive for COVID-19, as did several of his colleagues with the world champions.

He has returned to the fold and recuperated, getting back on the pitch at the Aon Training Complex this week.

“Paul’s had a couple of training sessions so he’s lost out on a few sessions because of the virus, of course,” Ole told us in an exclusive interview with MUTV's Mark Sullivan on Friday morning. “But Paul is quick to get fit. Of course, he worked really hard to get back after lockdown last time and played the majority of the games.

“Hopefully, he’ll be ready for next weekend. I am not 100 per cent sure though.”

Harry Maguire will remain Manchester United captain, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.

Maguire, 27, was given a suspended prison sentence on the Greek island of Syros after being found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery.

He maintains his innocence and has appealed against the decision, which nullifies the conviction.

"He is going to be our captain," Solskjaer told MUTV.

"He's handled it really well and, of course, I'll be here to support him.

"We'll just leave Harry and his people and the process to run. For me, he is a top, an absolute top human being and has always been a positive guy with the right values. So I really hope we can see Harry performing at his best."

Maguire will now receive a full retrial in a more senior court and told the BBC his "conscience is clear".

He was withdrawn from the England squad last month, but manager Gareth Southgate says he will "absolutely be looking" to recall the defender in October.

United play a friendly against Aston Villa on Saturday before their Premier League campaign begins against Crystal Palace on 19 September.

Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood says it was "poor judgement" to inhale nitrous oxide, after "historical pictures" of him doing so were published by the Sun.

It comes after Greenwood and Manchester City's Phil Foden were sent home from England duty on Monday for breaching coronavirus quarantine guidelines.

"I strongly urge others not to follow my example," said Greenwood, 18.

Nitrous oxide is also known as laughing gas or 'hippy crack'.

In a statement, Greenwood said: "I have now been made aware of the health risks associated with this practice and accept that even trying it, as shown in these historical pictures, was poor judgement on my part.

"As an 18-year-old, I am learning all the time. However, this week I have also learned I will be judged to a higher standard because of my career as a footballer and I must respect that in future.

"I am determined to repay the faith shown in me by my manager and coaches."

Sold legally, nitrous oxide is used for medical and commercial uses. While it is not illegal to possess the substance, it is illegal to give away or sell as a psychoactive drug.

Nitrous oxide slows down the brain and the body's responses, giving users a feeling of euphoria and can cause hallucinations, but it can also lead to headaches, dizziness and paranoia.

However, large doses can starve the body and brain of oxygen, according to UK government drug advice service Frank.

Greenwood made his senior international debut in the 1-0 Nations League victory over Iceland in Reykyavik on 5 September.

His call-up followed a breakout season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United, in which he scored 17 goals.

Greenwood said he "only has himself to blame" after being dropped from Gareth Southgate's England squad over the incident in Iceland.

He is now back at United and training on his own, in accordance with Covid-19 protocols.

Hoeness said the English clubs are "trying to blackmail us, in the sense that they're waiting until the last week of the window and then will throw in a cheap offer."

He added that Thiago "has clearly made an agreement with Liverpool, or Manchester United or both, and both clubs are now bluffing. Neither has approached Bayern. That's not the way to do things as I see it."

Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has accused the agent of David Alaba of being "a money-grabbing piranha" amid negotiations over a new contract and claimed Manchester United and Liverpool are "trying to blackmail" Bayern over the transfer of Thiago Alcantara.


Cut that guy some slack until there is concrete proof on this. Why every single time he must be made the scapegoat for everything and anything? After all, most likely none of us here has any qualification to even do what he does so probably should be a bit tone down with our so called 'criticism".

Premier League teams join the Carabao Cup at the second-round stage this week knowing the tournament's winners will enter a new European competition.

The winners of this season's cup will not qualify for the Europa League as in the past, but will instead go into the Uefa Europa Conference League (UECL).

They will enter at the play-off phase, the round before the group stages.

Uefa's third-tier tournament - which was announced in December 2018 - starts next season.

If the EFL Cup winners qualify for Europe through the league - as has happened every year since 2013 - then the sixth-placed team in the Premier League (or seventh place if the FA Cup is won by a top-six team) will go into the UECL play-offs.

There will still be at least four English teams in the Champions League and two in the Europa League.

The Europa Conference League, which will have 32 teams in the group stages, will be played on Thursday nights along with the Europa League, which is reduced from 48 to 32 teams.

The UECL groups are likely to contain teams from some of Europe's smaller countries, as well as teams who finish sixth in Spain, Italy and Germany and win the play-offs - in addition to clubs that lose their Europa League qualifiers.

The winners of the UECL qualify for the following season's Europa League.

Man with a plan - but finances have been hit

It has not always been the case, but United have started buying to a plan.

Since last summer, there has yet to be an absolute failure, and even the one man there are doubts about - winger Daniel James - came at relatively low cost and performed superbly in his first few weeks as a United player.

In addition, Solskjaer has got rid of players he either had no use for or did not want to be around, including forwards Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

However, BBC Sport was told by a number of sources the idea was for last season to be the start of something substantial - and that required more signings.

In that respect, United have hit a problem.

Their long-running pursuit of Jadon Sancho is stuck because they cannot agree a fee with Borussia Dortmund. Alternatives are being considered, but Gareth Bale seems more likely to end up at Spurs and Ivan Perisic, a target from the Mourinho era, would come at a hefty cost wage-wise.

And this is where the real issue lies.

The financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic is hitting United hard. Every time a game at Old Trafford is played behind closed doors, it costs the club about £5m in lost income.

The true cost of Covid-19 will be outlined later this month, when the club release their end-of-year financial results but, without clarity over when supporters will be allowed back in stadiums in any significant number, they are loath to stretch themselves more than they are able.

It also creates a difficulty when it comes to selling players, because - of course - most other clubs are in the same position as United.


Over spent then end up need to balance the book then what? Lay off the staff working with the clubs? Like what some clubs had done?

Baru talk about jota few post back. Now Liverpool already closing in. The management is bodoh if we only have one signing. We are no 3 last season. It is something that can be improve. So frustrated you know.....
