Manchester United

Ken has just come back from Europe a few days ago. Surprisingly, I received a special key chain from him. It's the Manchester United key chain. I am very happy to own it as I am a fan of Manchester United. Thank you very much, Ken!

Manchester United badge up to the most recent revision in 1998.

The Manchester United crest has been altered on a few occasions, but the basic form remains similar. The badge is derived from the crest of the city of Manchester.

The devil on the club badge stems from the club's nickname "The Red Devils", which was adopted in the early 1960s after Matt Busby heard it in reference to the red-shirted Salford rugby league side.

By the end of the 1960s, the devil had started to be included on club programmes and scarves, before it was finally incorporated into the club badge in 1970, holding its unmistakable trident. In 1998, the badge was once again redesigned, this time removing the words "Football Club".






The 2009-10 season started well for Manchester United, despite a shock 1-0 defeat to Burnley at Turf Moor.

A run of victories then followed, including a 4-3 derby win over Manchester City, which was won in the 96th minute by Michael Owen. However, a poor performance against
Liverpool resulted in a 2-0 defeat at Anfield.

United lost 2-1 to local rivals Manchester City in the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final on 19 January and will play the return leg at Old Trafford on 27 January.


On 3 November, Manchester United secured qualification from the group stage of the Champions League with a 3-3 home draw against CSKA Moscow and finished top of the group after defeating Wolfsburg 3-1, in which Michael Owen scored his first hat-trick for the club.

United will face Milan in the first knockout round of the Champions League which could see the return of David Beckham to Old Trafford.

On 3 January 2010, Manchester United suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to fierce rivals Leeds United at home in the FA Cup Third Round. It was Alex Ferguson's first defeat in the FA Cup Third Round as United manager and the first time ever his side had fallen to a lower division club in the competition.

  13. I love World Cup and would have loved to take my son to football matches. But he grew up to play the drums and was in Brass Band...

    Nope I was not disappointed.

    As an after thought fathers should be the ones to take their sons out to play ball!!

    Nice post...
