On this day


#1742

No it wasnt


#1743

Something about newtown heath?


#1744

Different entity altogether. Man U were founded in 1902.


#1745

I didn’t want to cheat and Google it…

Manchester United was formed 140 years ago in 1878, as Newton Heath LYR F.C. In 1902 they were saved from a winding up order by local businessmen including John Henry Davis who became club president and changed the name to Manchester United FC.
United celebrated their centenary in 1978.


#1747

On this day four years ago - Gerrard slipped, Ba scored and the title was lost.


#1748

also on this day, in 1974


#1749

Oooft!


#1750

that should see him off til the FA cup final


#1751

But Denis Law won a league title…?


#1752

I’d say relegating united meant more to him.


#1753

Strange celebrating a centenary in 1978 when they were only around for 76 years.


#1754

It would like claiming to be the same age as your father just because he created you…very strange.


#1755

Never played in a European Cup Final, yet alone win one on the field of play.


#1756

Denis Law didn’t relegate Manchester United.
It’s a misconception. They were going down even they had beaten Manchester City in that game because of results elsewhere.


#1757

On this day in 1974 Denis Law relegated Man Utd.


#1758

Optics mate, optics

Never let the facts ruin a good story.


#1759

Indeed.
Urban myths are always a bit of craic.


#1760

Champions then

Champions now


#1761

Don’t let the truth ruin a good narrative
