I just hope this will not be offensive to the ardent Manchester United fans worldwide, but looking around the once greatest team in England and one of the best teams in the world, things have not been the same since the retirement of the enigma, Sir Alex Ferguson.
Since the serial title winner Sir Alex Ferguson left what was, undeniably, the biggest club in England, they have broken records left and right;
– They went from Premier League champions to finishing 7th, meaning Man Utd would have no European football of any kind.
– They lost 3 games in a row for the first time in over a decade.
– They finished with their worst ever Premier League points tally.
– They failed to win the opening 3 games of a Premier league season for The first time.
– For the first time ever in the Premier league, Man Utd took a two goal lead in a game but still ended up losing.
– They lost their first home game of the season for the first time in over 40 years.
– This season they lost four successive league games for the first time since the 60s.
Now to be sure, this does make entertaining reading, the fact is no ordinary football fan likes Man Utd, that’s an undeniable fact. But another fact is that somehow the biggest club in England has now become a joke. SAF retired in glory, but since then they have been a shadow.
