HISTORY FOR DECADE 2000-2009
Glory!!! Glory Man Utd!!! United started the new decade, century and millennium in typical pioneering fashion. They entered a brand new competition – the FIFA Club World Championship in Brazil – but at the expense of their participation in the FA Cup, of which they were the holders. They achieved their sixth Premiership title early, in April, and still without a convincing replacement for Peter Schmeichel. So, they make a decision to take Fabien Barthez joined United in July 2000.
Ferguson's major signing in the summer of 2002 was Rio Ferdinand. In the period without Rio, the Reds lost their title - to Arsenal again - but won the FA Cup for a record eleventh time, beating Millwall 3-0 in the 2004 final at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium. A year later United were back in Wales to face Arsenal for the trophy. Chelsea had taken the Premiership and Carling Cup, and it was the Gunners who triumphed on penalties despite a dominant display from United - for whom Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo were outstanding. The following season brought maiden silverware for the pair as the Reds beat Wigan Athletic in the Carling Cup final.
The best thing is about the United young player that was improve, such as Foster , Federico Macheda, Danny Welbeck and Darron Gibson . So even though Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez left Old Trafford in the summer, the future appears to be in very good hands...
