Incredibly, the only major trophy United did not win in 2008 was the FA Cup (Who cares about the Super Cup). So successful we were this past year that tales will be told to our great grandchildren of how EVDS saved all spot-kicks against Chelsea in the Community Shield such that the scoreline read an emphatic 3-0 victory.
Tales will be told of how Ryan Giggs scored a title winning goal on the last day of the season to win us our 10th league crown. Hilarious tales will be told about John Terry who slipped at the most crucial minute of his life to literally hand United the European Cup. And of course big tales will be told of how United travelled to to the Far Eat to conquer the world.
2008 was a fantastic year for Manchester United and all who are associated with it.
It was the 50th anniversary since the tragic Munich air disaster and the day was rightfully honoured on Feb 6. From then on, it was destiny that shaped our season. Paul Scholes got the goal that enabled him to play in the Champions League final. We won the league on the last day of the season to make it perfect 10 for Sir Alex and one less than the Scousers.
The Busby Babes worked fate in our favour and we lifted the giant trophy for the third time.
In the year 2000, after our victory in the Inter-continental cup, United was ranked the strongest club in the world. Eight years on and United are officially the world's best following our victory in the World Club Cup.
If I wasn't shading tears of joy, I would go on and on about the year we have just had. It certainly is the most successful year this club has seen to date given the level of modern day football and I'm thankful that I have lived to enjoy every minute of it! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIR ALEX AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!
