Great achievement of Alex Ferguson in Manchester United (Part 2)

Manchester United is well-known as a top club in the UK when they reach series of achievements and successes at big tournament like the Premier League, the Euro champion cup, so on.

To reach these achievements, it has big contribution of Alex Ferguson who is a talented head coach in Manchester United.

In this article, we continue to check list top great achievements of this manager for MU.

From the former article, we refer victory of MU in the Premier league 1993 which was the first time they were winners. Now, we will discuss other contributions.

2, Defeating Arsene Wenger during 1998- 2013

In late 1990s, Arsenal was well-known as a strong team for any competition because they were managed by Arsena Wenger who was a calculating and intelligent man. He made new history and new place for Arsenal with series of winning at almost tournament. 

Some clubs werecrumbled before perfect perfomance of Arsenal. However, Sir Alex and MU can do the opposite. They still were the most potential competitor for Arsenal in any competition. 

Before some failure against Arsenal, MU still could reach the Champions league and FA cup. The fact, only Sir can do it.

3, The Treble in 1999

In 1999, Manchester United won the Treble which was completely unprecedented in the UK before. 

Although this team faced difficulty and failure, finally luck still smiled with them happily,

In the two semi-finals, their opponent was Arsenal who was the most potential team for Championship title and another team was Juventus. These opponents required MU to force winning to have a ticket for final match.

Although sometime looked their failure, they overcame by flexible strategies of Sir Alex and became the new Champion. This victory was the first time for one UK club in the prestigious Treble tournament.

As for Chelsea, although Ruben-Loftus Cheek scored the opening goal, their real hero must be Kepa Arrizabalaga when the Spaniard excelled in blocking two penalties, thereby helping the Blues hard. overtaking Frankfurt. Earlier, in the first leg on German soil, another Spaniard was also the only goalscorer for Chelsea.

In crucial moments that require bravery, we don’t see the appearance of the British. And do the teams really need the Englishmen to achieve these achievements?

Arsenal won with a team of 13/14 foreign players, where are the English players?

4 English teams reached the final, but sadly, in the case of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier, the role of the English players in the host team is quite precarious and lackluster.

Danny Rose, an English international, still competes every day in the left-hand corner against Ben Davies. The same thing happens to Eric Dier and Harry Winks, the duo are even showing a losing position in the race with these tall, muscular midfielders, Victor Wanyama and Moussa Sissoko.

In Liverpool, Trent-Alexander Arnold and Jordan Henderson both shone brightly in the team’s 4-0 win over Barca. However, unlike Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane, these are not irreplaceable names in The Kop.

The British Football Association, but the British Football Association is all 4 years old

Arnold is good, but not a real star at Liverpool.

At Camp Nou, coach Juergen Klopp used to put Arnold on the bench to replace with Joe Gomez. As for Henderson, it is not an important factor in Liverpool’s play.

In the current Liverpool squad, the only English player who can be sure of starting if healthy is Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain. However, Chambo has been away from the pitch for more than a year, and no one is sure whether he will regain his peak form.

Anyway, the situation of the indigenous players in these two teams is still much better than the bleak scene going on at Arsenal and Chelsea.

While many England’s football teams gain success, the national team is still faded (Part 1)

English clubs dominate the European Cup with 2 finals all over England, but is it really a good sign for football in the foggy country?

After Liverpool and Tottenham created great sub-versions to advance to the Champions League final, the Europa League, Arsenal and Chelsea also made no mistakes to participate in the final match, thereby creating 2 matches. All-English finals, something that has never happened in history.

These victories made English football fans ecstatic in their victory and sang the phrase “football is coming home” (bringing football home).

Success at club level does not bring success to England.

English teams are achieving success, but looking to England, have fans ever felt depressed? And is football really coming home?

When the “crate” match is “mercenary”

Liverpool crush Barca 4-0 at Anfield, Tottenham miraculously upstream with 3 goals in the second half to beat Ajax on the away field, Arsenal brought down the “bat” of Mestalla of Valencia with a 4-2 victory, and Chelsea struggled to overcome Frankfurt on a dramatic shootout.

Either way, representatives from England were present in the final. However, there is a common point that among the heroes of these 4 teams, who “crate” the results of the match, there is no single name.

Lucas Moura was the focus of the magic night of the Tottenham players with a hat-trick.

Before Barca, Divock Origi (Belgium) and Giorginio Wijnaldum (Netherlands) are the ones who shine to bring the ticket for Liverpool. In Amsterdam, the stage belongs to Lucas Moura (Brazil) with a hat-trick, thereby creating one of the craziest comebacks in the history of the Champions League.

Go to Mestalla, double “artillery” Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Gabon) and Alexandre Lacazette (France) continue to fire to help Arsenal shoot down the “bat cave”. Earlier, in the first leg, it was this duo who shone to help Arsenal to come back from the lead after the visitors.
