First Division
Charlie Roberts
1910-1911: The second title. In a closely-fought season, Manchester United beat Aston Villa to the top spot by 1 point, claiming their second title. The stadium - and the football kit! - looks a bit different to what we're used to seeing today.

First Division
1951-1952: The third title. Matt Busby (seen here on the right with Sir Alex Ferguson) managed the team who won the title in 1952, 41 years after they'd last won a major title. Busby went on to manage Manchester United, and is the club's second most successful manager in history, after Sir Alex.

First Division
Duncan Edwards and Eddie Colman
1955-1956: The fourth title. Matt Busby completely changed the make-up of the team, bringing in new and much younger players. With an average of of 22 they were nicknamed the Busby Babes. Two of them were Duncan Edwards (left) and Eddie Colman (right).

First Division
Manchester United in 1957
1956-1957: The fifth title. The side went on to win the league title the following year because of the hugely successful young stars the 'Busby Babes.' Tragically many of the young men seen here were killed in an airplane crash in Munich, Germany, the following year.

George Best and Bobby Charlton
1964-1965: The sixth title. After an horrific plane crash in Munich in 1958, manager Matt Busby rebuilds his team, pairing survivor Bobby Charlton (right) with striker George Best, who both went on to play for their national sides.

First Division
1966-1967: The seventh title. The success of Manchester United boils down to great striker pairings. Like Rooney and Robin Van Persie today, this season's 'Holy Trinity' of strikers George Best, Dennis Law and Bobby Charlton help the club win a seventh league title, a year before going on to beat Benfica to lift the European Cup.

European Cup Manchester United won the 1966–67 Football League title by four points over Nottingham Forest with a game to spare; this secured their second European Cup appearance in three seasons for 1967–68. After overcoming the Maltese champions, Hibernians, in the first round, United were handed yet another trip to Yugoslavia, this time to take on FK Sarajevo. The Red Devils faced a long journey to Sarajevo for the first leg, and they were held to a 0–0 draw in a very physical match. The second leg was equally robust, but United took control of the tie with goals from John Aston and George Best. Sarajevo were only able to pull back one goal and United went through to the quarter-finals, where they were drawn against Polish side Górnik Zabrze. United won the first leg at Old Trafford 2–0; an own goal from Stefan Florenski put them 1–0 up after an hour, and Brian Kidd doubled their lead in the final minute. The Poles had come to be considered one of the better sides in the last eight, and they were able to come away with a 1–0 win in the second leg, but it was not enough to prevent United from progressing to a semi-final tie with Real Madrid. United's 1–0 win in the first leg at Old Trafford was all that separated the sides after a 3–3 draw at the Bernabéu, setting up a meeting with Benfica in the final at Wembley Stadium. Best was again on the scoresheet, along with two goals from Charlton and one from Kidd on his 19th birthday, as United beat the Portuguese champions 4–1 after extra time to claim their first European trophy.

1992-1993: The eighth title. Sir Alex Ferguson took over as manager from Matt Busby, and six years into his reign leads the side to their 8th league win, and the first win under the newly-formed Premier League. French striker Eric Cantona was a key player at this time ending the club's 26-year gap without lifting the trophy.

Premier League
David Beckham, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and Eric Cantona
1996-1997: The 11th title. David Beckham makes his mark at the club, scoring from 60 yards, but it's £1.2m Norwegian striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who proves crucial in winning the title. Inspirational player Eric Cantona ended his time with Manchester United retiring at the end of this season.

UEFA Champions League The 1998–99 UEFA Champions League was the 44th season of the UEFA Champions League, Europe's premier club football tournament, and the seventh since it was renamed from the "European Champion Clubs' Cup" or "European Cup". The competition was won by Manchester United, coming back from a goal down in the last two minutes of injury time to defeat Bayern Munich 2–1 in the final. Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjær scored United's goals after Bayern had hit the post and the bar. They were the first English club to win Europe's premier club football tournament since 1984 and were also the first English club to reach a Champions League final since the Heysel Stadium disaster and the subsequent banning of English clubs from all UEFA competitions between 1985 and 1990. Manchester United also completed the Treble, becoming the fourth side in Europe to do so and in the process preventing Bayern Munich from achieving the feat themselves, Bayern eventually finished runners-up in their domestic cup two weeks later.
