Manchester United legend and former captain Bryan Robson believes that his former side have the edge over neighbours Manchester City – and cited Sir Alex Ferguson’s zero-tolerance approach towards ill-disciplined players as the main reason between the two sides. Patrick Vieira spoke in the week about Paul Scholes and claimed that it was a ‘weakness’ on behalf of Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United for the midfielder’s return to the first team – overlooking the return of Carlos Tevez, who Roberto Mancini vowed would never play for the club again. Is it this type of ill-discipline that could prove the difference in the title run in?

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

Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton has revealed that he is ‘stunned’ by United’s best start to a league campaign. United have picked up maximum points in their opening five games, scoring twenty one goals in the process. United have recorded victories over London clubs Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham – whilst beating Bolton and WBA on their travels. Sir Bobby admits that it is a fantastic, if unusual, start for the Champions. We’ve looked back at the previous twenty seasons and documented the number of points United have obtained within their first five games.
