Manchester United Official History - 1878-2002

Manchester United Football Club started life as Newton Heath,
a team founded by workers from the Lancashire and Yorkshire
Railway in 1878. This is where this program starts, recounting the
history of Manchester United. Honors soon followed and the first
of seven First Division titles was won in 1908. With an FA Cup
win the following year, and another league title two years later,
Manchester United were firmly establishing themselves as a force
in English football. The history continues; Old Trafford was bombed
during the WWII and we witness the painful rebuilding process before moving into an
era of great success and tragedy under the inspirational management of Sir Matt Busby.
He was the first manager to lead an English club into Europe before the Munich plane
crash prematurely robbed football of his brilliant Busby Babes. But Busby and
Manchester United were not to let this tragedy defeat them as Busby created another
brilliant team starring Charlton, Best and Law that was to shine in England and go on to
win the European Cup. In the years after Busby's resignation, FA Cups followed at
regular intervals but the League Championship continued to elude United until Sir Alex
Ferguson built the team of the nineties that have gone on to win seven premiership titles
over the last ten years. Built around home-grown talent and inspirational signings
(such as Eric Cantona), Manchester United moved into an era of unrivalled success
which culminated in the remarkable treble of 1999. But Manchester Uniteds history does
not stop there. Further championships followed in both 2000 and 2001 and this program
finishes at a time when Ferguson, through the signings of Ruud van Nistelrooy, Juan
Sebastian Veron and Rio Ferdinand is building another team worthy of success at home
and in Europe
