Manchester United Profile
Manchester United betting form
Manchester United are the most iconic football team in England and have dominated the Premier League during recent years and look set to regain the title in 2013. Managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, the most successful manager in British football history they have dominated domestic and European competition and have regularly been contenders for silverware.
The strength of the Premier League competition means there are still good value opportunities for a bet on Man United. After taking over in 1986 Sir Alex has transformed the side from being serial underachievers to European Champions. The process was not swift and it was four years before they won their first major trophy under Sir Alex, the 1990 FA Cup.
The 1958 Munich air disaster cemented the place of the club in the hearts of the English people when several key players, team officials and members of the sports press, were killed whilst travelling as part of the European cup competition. The team was rebuilt by the manager Sir Matt Busby who barely survived the crash himself and won numerous trophies in the 1960’s.
In 2013 the team has been boosted by the addition of star striker Robin Van Persie and the development of younger players such as Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley. With evergreen Ryan Giggs still pulling the strings in midfield the team has had the right blend of youth and experience to put considerable distance between them and the second place team, local rivals Manchester City. For those interested in Manchester Utd betting, this season has seen domestic success tempered by disappointment on the European front. Those fancying Man U betting odds next season will be heartened by the knowledge that Sir Alex Ferguson does not take failure lightly and he will be keen to win his third European Champions League Trophy.
