For everyone laughing at Manchester United, allow me to tell you a story. Railway workmen came together to play football once and dared to dream. A dream to make something more of their lives. That is Manchester United.
The team lost its first ever competitive game 6-0 to Bolton Reserves. It got relegated in its second season of competitive football. In January 1902, it was asked to shut down because of debts. (2)
It didn't. Instead it came back up and won the league, a FA Cup and a charity shield 2 years later. That is Manchester United.

From 1922 to 1940, United were relegated again and again and again. Faced with bankruptcy in 1931, United were on the verge of disaster again. (3)
Instead, the team held on and fought on. Finishing 2nd in 1947, 1948 and 1949; 1st in '52, 55 and 56. It won the FA Cup in 1948 and became the first English team to play in Europe. It had to wait 41 years for glory. That is Manchester United. (4)
A plane took off on February 6, 1958. To greatness it seemed. And came crashing down. 8 players died. Facing despair and doom, the club fought on. It reached the final of the FA Cup that year .Without a first team, the club plodded on and rebuilt. (5)
7 years later, as the fallen 8 smiled from above, the team won the title in 1965 and 1967. And the European Cup in 68. That is Manchester United. (6)
For 25 years the club and its fan had to wait again through pain amd torment, losing managers and battling relegations but, the wait bore fruitful results as United won the title in '92, double in '93 and the Treble in '99 under the one and only SAF (7)
Blood, Toil, Sweat and Tears
This is Manchester United ❤

Then what continued was a historic spell which included endless glory, we ended up winning the most PL titles, the Champions league again in 08 and back to back Premier Leagues from 06 to 09. (8)
Then came catastrophe when SAF retired and the club again went into a big decline but still managed to stay on its feet with fans going through it all. (9)
Rivals laugh at us because they think that we've lost but we'll keep smiling because we've seen it all. Glory from the darkest despair is MANCHESTER UNITED. WILL LOVE THIS CLUB THROUGH THICK AND THIN. (10)
Found this beautiful article on the internet, (Made some additions myself too) hence posted it to lift everyone's spirits.
