Picture it now. May 2002. United’s last game resulted in a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal and the recently dethroned champs host Charlton Athletic. Today, is the final Manchester United fixture for a legend of the game, Sir Alex Ferguson, who has won an amazing seven League titles and European Cup in his time at the club – a superb achievement that no one will match again.

United end a disappointing season with a 0-0 draw, however many Reds are looking forward to new manager Sven Goran Ericksson taking over after the World Cup finals and injecting some new ideas. He has a lot to live upto, but a manager of his calibre should be able to pick up where the previous manager left off.

Thankfully, this didn’t happen and here we look at ‘the butterfly effect’ of what would have happened had Sir Alex not be persuade by his wife to stay at the Old Trafford helm. We, as always, welcome your feedback and suggestions
