Manchester United Football Club is a professional football club based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England. Nicknamed "the Red Devils", the club was founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to its current stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910.

Manchester United have won a record 20 League titles, 12 FA Cups, 5 League Cups and a record 21 FA Community Shields. The club has also won three UEFA Champions Leagues, one UEFA Europa League, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup. In 1998–99, the club became the first in the history of English football to achieve the treble of the Premier League, the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. In 2016–17, by winning the UEFA Europa League, they became one of five clubs to have won all three main UEFA club competitions. In addition, they became the only professional English club to have won every ongoing honour available to the first team that is organised by a national or international governing body.

The 1958 Munich air disaster claimed the lives of eight players. In 1968, under the management of Matt Busby, Manchester United became the first English football club to win the European Cup. Alex Ferguson won 38 trophies as manager, including 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups and 2 UEFA Champions Leagues, between 1986 and 2013, when he announced his retirement. José Mourinho is the club's current manager, having been appointed on 27 May 2016.

Manchester United was the highest-earning football club in the world for 2016–17, with an annual revenue of €576.3 million, and the world's most valuable football club in 2017, valued at £2.86 billion. As of June 2015, it is the world's most valuable football brand, estimated to be worth $1.2 billion. After being floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1991, the club was purchased by Malcolm Glazer in May 2005 in a deal valuing the club at almost £800 million, after which the company was taken private again, before going public once more in August 2012, when they made an initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange. Manchester United is one of the most widely supported football clubs in the world, and has its strongest rivalries with Liverpool, Manchester City and Leeds United.

Manchester United

Mason Greenwood and Arnau Puigmal were among the goals on Saturday as our Under-18s beat Norwich 3-0 at Colney! ... See moreSee less

Highlights U18s: Norwich 0 United 3

The youths are playing the United way. No wonder they can’t get into the senior team.

Too bad they're going to grow up and learn to play negative, boring football under Busrinho.

now they got hammered by man sheiky.... back to the u18s again hahaha

He looks some striker Greenwood. He's still very young, but he reminds me of Van Persie with his finishing!!

Greenwood needs to go on loan to Germany for a few years and make a first team there. Putting him in United's first team will destroy him. Same for Chung and Gomes.

Give Mason Greenwood a chance in the first team. Mourinho be brave for once. At least, he will be better than Lukaku

It's sad to see the teenagers scoring and not the first team.

Replace our starting xi with this squad for one match only lol

Tahith Chong and greenwood are smashing it

Give their coach three games at senior level to show that cowch JM how to win games

One of these two players should be in the first (senior) team,pure talents. 🙏

Greenwood is on fire at the minute, seems to be scoring every game and quality finishes too. Better than Sanchez!

At this point its basically cheating playing Greenwood at this level!

Let them play on the first team!

This is sir Alexes football. You all show the first team up.

....but, will any of these lads get a chance under the current manager?

This team must be replaced by the first team. At least they play for the club. This team must be replaced by the first team. At least they play for the club Not for money.

Start playing some of the kids they mite do a bit better than that lot we have now....

They should better replace the first team with immediate effect

Jahed Ali Daniel Laird playing Mason is unfair on those kids haha. He's another level. Its November and hes got like 15 goals or something. I've lost count

We should command and give credit to our players for the little they have achieved under such an outdated manager

Everything's fine with Manchester United except the senior team!

Well done, lads, keep it up!

The kid runs like V.Persie. pure talent.

Already better than lukaku !!

A first Premier League defeat since late September but Ander Herrera says we can't afford to dwell on today's result. ... See moreSee less

#MUTV: Ander Herrera

 

Comment on Facebook

Worst player on the field today

Not to worry. I earn 150k per week to be at best an average footballer. You can watch me tomorrow with all of my other talentless team mates who earn more than me acting like 8 year olds at training dressed up like we are about to climb Mount Everest laughing and joking around without a care in the worldHowever you will not see our boss unless their is a camera crew present so that he can parade around like a peacock as part of the "Mourinho Show"

Pls Sack Jose Mourinho... I'm tired of watching Manutd games... It hurts me watching the team play. Manutd has lost its attacking tradition completely... This is not United I know. Shame!!!

Pogba's absence is the excuse?? City is playing without De Bruyne remember!! Foden had many passes than Lingard & Sanchez, but he came on the 92nd minutes #SharkTeam #C'MonCity

EPL fans say Pep cannot manage in EPL Now Pep turn EPL to farmer league and easier league. Pep is best coach recently.

This page speaks like we were close to mancity, we didnt even stand a chance, wake up, your chairman is ruining the history of a humongous club, its sad to watch manutd play and almost fall asleep. This club was never second best in english soil.

First pl loss since late September!!! Speaking of trying to twist the result!!! Lol, how about 12 points behind a team we used to beat comfortably like 9-10 yrs ago!!

He should dwell, he should take a long hard look at his lowlight reel from today! Slow, laboured, caught in possession time and time again!

Man Utd is definitely not a team without Pogba.. . there was no creativity today at all.. Although that is what you get when you put some inexperienced boys as attackers

What happened to him today. Gave the ball away countless times. And he happens to be my favorite player in the squad

I have said it b4 and iam saying it again,..morinho has nothing to offer man united.the team always depend on luck to get a goal..he is making our players look average.. the players are good and ready to play but morinho is embarrassing them b4 there opponent. always making them look inferior with his outdated style of play...man united can never make top 4 this season and guess what?..morinho will sell all our good players during the transfer market....

8th position after 12 games with a third of those lost (and more than half outplayed). If this was a managers first season everyone would be screaming for the sack.....so why are we accepting this is ok for a supposedly world class manager who is into his 3rd season of building his own team and style of play and spent several hundred million doing it???? I don’t want to be shouting Jose out every week but it’s so clear he is not the right manager for this club.

I must confess, manchester city is the real deal at the moment and they will continue to dominate the premier league in ar much as pep is still around...

Dear Mr Woodward, The commercial value of a football club is what happens on the pitch not off it; not social media etc. The allure of the Man Utd brand has been that of success on the pitch(great attacking football), magical European nights, the trophies won, the rich history etc.If you are so conscious about the bottom line then you do know that failure this season will repercussions on the next ie tv revenues (Europa League?), good players will not extend their contracts or avoid the club like the plague hence. Managers have been fired for less, like losing a local derby or classico. What strangle hold does Mourinho have on you? Who negotiates a contract that's one sided? Man U is not a firing club? Remember Moyes or Van Gaal? Firing Mourinho is not a knee jerk reaction. Three years is certainly not!! The only constant is CHANGE! May I remind you that, you are a servant of Man Utd and not the Glazers! Man Utd fan from Singapore.

I don't like to compare Jose with Klopp bt this actually pisses me of we all know what Jose has done in the Game bt he is always full of excuses just look at Klopp he has transformed Liverpool in to a Well oiled Machine with average players from Mid-Table teams Mane,Robertson,Firmino,Van Dijk,Shaqiri,Keita,Weignaldum yet Mourinho complains when he has born quality players who were on fire in their Previous clubs only to turn them into bang-Average players with Mourinho Man united won't progress get Pochettino or Leonardo Jardim to solve our misery and our Hierachy needs to Restructure everything starting with Ed Woodward bring in a Director of Football and appoint great Scouts who have an Impressive record with Young Players

That's where Herrera and everyone one else is wrong. We are Manchester United. We MUST DWELL on any defeat by anyone, especially Manchester City.

One of his worst games in a Utd shirt today. The midfield was diabolical. Fellaini did well, but isn’t a midfielder. Matic is piss poor. Static, too slow and offers no protection to our leaking defence. Left Gundogan free as a bird for the 3rd goal too. 🙈

Wow... The social media team making out that a first defeat since late September is some kind of positive. Really signals where we're at at the moment

Herrera must stfu .. he was the worst player on the pitch and the fact that it took Mourinho so long to realise this is saddening. We must do to Mou what Real Madrid did to their coach. We are clinging onto a past that will never suffice again. Pep is miles ahead of him. He breaks our players more than he is building them . Mentally City is far beyond us. The only way to fix this problem is to get an attack minded coach. United will never be able to play defensive and that is all Jose Mourinho knows. Shout-out to City. They outclassed us today. They made it look like an art, but since when is United an underdog to any team? We don't know this feeling. We don't want it. #MouOut

Can't dwell on it , must do better blah blah blah load of old cobblers , change should of happened months ago but instead we're struggling on 😠

Tbh: City play a very beautiful football, I believe it's there time to shine... And I don't see us stopping them with kinda of football we play.

Please....when we as a club get bored with these comments....we need to not dwell....we need to move on....we need to do next result....I know we have issues....but please don't patronize us with next game comments.MUFC till I die

very embarrassing, Jose’s inconsistent team selection and tactics, continue to taint the credentials of De Gea, making him look like an ordinary goal keeper. it’s not yet December and we’ve conceded a whooping total of 21 goals, very embarrassing for a club with a revered repute like ours. This certainly can’t be united.

Every time I say Jose should go ,some one calls me a plastic fan just because he consoles them with un decisive wins. Any way the team needs a good manager like ancellotti or konte or zidane or allegri and an overhaul of the team like loaning rashford, Jones, smalling and selling of average players like young,Valencia,fellaini,Sanchez,lukaku and Fred. I think lingard and Martial are good but need strong leadership. Any way playing city and u create less than 3 scoring opportunities and u expect to win,playing city and you don't make runs and u expect to win,defend carelessly and expect to win,hmmmmmmmm man utd

What s wrong with Man Utd since sir Alex is gone, this team is under perfomance, and even looking worse under Mourinho management... MANUTD is weak even in fifa lately, when you this team players jst dont perform... But in reality MAn utd is a great team and the coach should know when to quit, it will not make him a low level coach, i think his strategy ain't good anymore... Also we need great talents to come support the players that we already have.
