The 1995-96 season was Manchester United's fourth season in the Premier League, and their 21st consecutive season in the top division of English football. United finished the season by becoming the first English team to win the Double (league title and FA Cup) twice. Their triumph was made all the more remarkable by the fact that Alex Ferguson had sold experienced players Paul Ince, Mark Hughes and Andrei Kanchelskis before the start of the season, and not made any major signings. Instead, he had drafted in young players like Nicky Butt, David Beckham, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers, Gary and Phil.Eric Cantona returned from his eight-month suspension at the beginning of October, and finished the season as the club's top scorer with 19 goals in all competitions, the last one being the winner against Liverpool in the FA Cup Final. He also picked up a Premier League winner's medal and the FWA Player of the Year award. The Premier League title was sealed on the final day of the season with a 3-0 win at Bryan Robson's Middlesbrough.

The 1996-97 season was Manchester United's fifth season in the Premier League, and their 22nd consecutive season in the top division of English football.[1] United clinched the Premier League title with 75 points - placing them seven points ahead of the three teams below them; Newcastle United, Arsenal and Liverpool.They also reached the European Cup semi-finals, bowing out to eventual winners Borussia Dortmund of Germany, after losing both legs 1-0. Earlier in the competition, they had lost at home in Europe for the first time, with a 1-0 defeat to Fenerbahçe of Turkey in the group stage. Their defence of the FA Cup ended in the Fourth Round replay with a 1-0 defeat to Wimbledon, while their bid for success in the League Cup was short lived as they bowed out to eventual winners Leicester City in the Fourth Round.New signing Ole Gunnar Solskjær was one of the biggest breakthrough stars in the 1996-97 Premier League season, with 19 goals in all competitions, making him the club's top goalscorer. Twenty-two-year-old midfielder David Beckham clinched the PFA Young Player of the Year award in the same season he won his first England cap. Solskjær's fellow Norwegian, Ronny Johnsen, proved himself as a fine successor to Steve Bruce in central defence, but £3.5 million Czech winger Karel Poborský failed to win a regular first team place and was one of the Premier League's biggest disappointments that season. Jordi Cruyff, son of Dutch legend Johan Cruyff, was similarly disappointing, failing to win a regular first team place despite being able to play in midfield, attack or on the left wing.Just before the start of the season, winger Lee Sharpe left the club after eight years to sign for Leeds United in a £4.5 million deal. Earlier in the summer, captain Steve Bruce had departed to Birmingham City on a free transfer after almost a decade at Old Trafford, while Paul Parker left on a free transfer after his final two seasons at the club had been plagued by injury and the loss of his place in the team to Gary Neville.The season ended with a major shock as Eric Cantona announced his retirement from playing, prompting manager Alex Ferguson to search for a new striker. The search ended with the £3.5 million capture of Tottenham Hotspur and England 31-year-old Teddy Sheringham.

The 1992-93 season was Manchester United's first season in the newly formed FA Premier League, and their 18th consecutive season in the top division of English football.[1]The season was marked by the club winning the inaugural Premier League title, ending their 26-year run without an English league title. They ended up winning the title by a 10-point margin over runners-up Aston Villa, but had fought a three-horse race for much of the season with both Villa and Norwich City, not topping the table until January. The arrival of Eric Cantona from Leeds United for £1.2 million in late November helped boost United's title challenge, after they had been as low as 10th in the league shortly before. Cantona's arrival came after new striker Dion Dublin had been ruled out for six months with a broken leg, and Cantona was the catalyst in United's triumph.Mark Hughes topped the goalscoring charts with 15 league goals, while the brilliant Ryan Giggs was voted PFA Young Player of the Year for the second year in succession. Steve Bruce was United's captain for much of the season, as the veteran Bryan Robson missed many games due to injury. The arrival of Eric Cantona saw former striker Brian McClair switched into midfield, further restricting Robson's first team chances.In the UEFA Cup, United bowed out on penalties to Torpedo Moscow of Russia, after two goalless draws. Their League Cup campaign ended in the Third Round with defeat at Aston Villa. The FA Cup bid ended in the Fifth Round when they lost 2-1 to Sheffield United in a game where Steve Bruce uncharacteristically missed a penalty.Making their debuts this season were teenagers David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Gary Neville.

The 1993-94 season was Manchester United's second season in the Premier League, and their 19th consecutive season in the top division of English football.[1] Manchester United won the Premier League and FA Cup to become only the fourth club in the 20th century to win the Double. Only a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the League Cup Final prevented them from winning a domestic treble.They led the Premier League table from the fourth game onwards, and ended up winning the league by eight points over nearest rivals Blackburn Rovers, although their lead of the table had peaked at 16 points halfway through the season. French striker Eric Cantona scored 25 goals in all competitions and was voted PFA Player of the Year. Ryan Giggs, Lee Sharpe and Andrei Kanchelskis also hit the headlines with their brilliant form. In the FA Cup Final, United crushed Chelsea 4-0 thanks to two penalties from Eric Cantona and a goal each from Mark Hughes and Brian McClair.Roy Keane justified his tag as the most expensive footballer in England by establishing himself as the club's regular central midfielder alongside Paul Ince, while veterans Mark Hughes, Brian McClair and Steve Bruce continued to excel despite their advancing years. The end of the season saw the club's longest serving player and joint captain, Bryan Robson, quit Old Trafford after 13 years to become Middlesbrough's player-manager. Also heading out of the exit door at the end of the season were Les Sealey, Clayton Blackmore, Mike Phelan, Colin McKee, and Giuliano Maiorana. Dion Dublin, who was unable to reclaim a regular place in the first team, was linked with a move away from Old Trafford for much of the season, but a move to Everton in November fell through and he was still at the club when the season ended.

Despite myriad popular and journalistic expositions, up to this point there have been virtually no academic discussions of the Manchester United phenomenon. This anthology represents the first concerted academic examination of Manchester United F.C. in its current guise as a widely followed and highly emblematic sporting institution. Bringing together respected academics from an array of disciplinary backgrounds these essays each interrogate various related dimensions of the Manchester United world. The primary aim of this collection is to illustrate how the structure and experience of Manchester United is implicated in broader societal shifts, within which the boundary between cultural and commercial concerns have become increasingly indivisible. The chapters are presented within five thematic sections: 1 Becoming United 2 Economy United 3 Embodied United 4 Local United 5 Global United

'One of the World's all-time great leaders' Professor Anita Elberse, Harvard Business School What does it take to lead a team to world-class success over a sustained period of time? Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the few leaders who truly knows. In his 38 years in management, Sir Alex won an astonishing 49 trophies and helped grow Manchester United into one of the biggest commercial brands in the world. In this inspirational and straight-talking book, Sir Alex reveals the secrets behind his record-breaking career. LEADING is structured around the key skills that Sir Alex values most highly. It includes subjects we immediately associate with his managerial style: Discipline, Control, Teamwork and Motivation. But it also addresses subjects that are less obvious but no less important when seeking success: Delegation, Data Analysis and Dealing with Failure. Written with the investor Sir Michael Moritz, a longstanding friend of Sir Alex, LEADING is packed with insight, wisdom, humour and honesty. The individual stories inevitably concern themselves with football, and the phenomenal success that came along the way, but the lessons can be applied by anyone. Whether you run a business, teach in a classroom, or work in a small team, LEADING will help you become a better leader.

The inside story into one of sport's greatest rivalries... how Manchester City, once Manchester United's poor relation in the English Premier League, was thrown a financial lifeline by the former Prime Minister of Thailand and a very wealthy Abu Dhabi Sheikh, and reinvented itself as a football powerhouse to topple the Manchester United dynasty built by Sir Alex Ferguson. With a rivalry stretching back more than a hundred years, THE BATTLE FOR MANCHESTER brings the history of the The Blues and The Red Devils from the foundation 'Newton Heath' and 'St. Mark's' clubs right up until Sergio Aguero's historic goal against Queen's Park Rangers to win the 2011/12 title. Learn what divides and unites the City of Manchester, every season, every star-signing and every important match in a fantastic juxtaposed City-United-City-United format that emphasises the lengths to which Manchester City has gone to claw its way back from England's 2nd Division to the pinnacle of English Football. The book includes momentous occasions such as: United's rise to fame on the English football stage in the 1950s including Sir Bobby Charlton; both clubs fighting for glory in the 1960s including City's dominance of the late 1960s and early 1970s; the introduction of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson; the decline of City and numerous relegations into lower leagues of England; he iconic treble winning United side of 1999 that included legends such as David Beckham, Dwight York, Gary Neville and Teddy Sherringham; Manchester City's return to the Premier League in 2000; the investment into City by the Abu Dhabi Investment Group that would change the financial landscape of football forever, and allow the club to field a team capable of taking on Sir Alex's men, and the eventful 2011/12 season which saw both Manchester clubs tied on points in the final round, with City scoring two goals in stoppage time to take the title from United on goal difference and become one of the most spectacular season-ends of all time.
