The Alex Ferguson Era

Manchester United has a long and successful history. They are one of the most successful teams in the world and have millions of supporters scattered around the globe. Demand for the Man Utd football kit spans the globe, as soccer fans see the Red Devils as an iconic team. In a recent match between Manchester United and Real Madrid over 109,000 soccer fans filled an American stadium, this is proof enough of their popularity and success.

Under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson from 1986 2013 Manchester United went from strength to strength. In the beginning Ferguson had some issues, and reported a slow and rocky start to management at Manchester United. However, in 1990 he won the FA Cup, and in 1992 the Premier League beginning the most successful time in the history of the Manchester United soccer kit.

With Manchester United Alex Ferguson won 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, 2 UEFA Champions League titles and several other cups and titles, this record boosted the clubs popularity. However, the retirement of Ferguson has led to the Manchester United kit becoming synonymous with disappointment and failure. Fans were hoping that after last season's trouble Louis van Gaal was the man to lead the club back to the top.

David Moyes was drafted in as replacement for the irreplaceable Alex Ferguson. His tenure lasted only 9 months after losing 7 home games last season, and missing out on Champions League soccer. Louis van Gaal was called up as replacement and began very well.

The Manchester United home jersey 2014 2015 was used during the International Champions Cup in America. Manchester United did not lose a game and ended the tournament as winners. This was a friendly competition but against the likes of Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Liverpool winning is king, and win they did, giving hope to soccer fans worldwide.

Manchester United V Swansea 

The excitement and hope from the friendly summer tournament came crashing down this weekend in pure and bitter disappointment. The Manchester United soccer kit featured in the 1st game of the 2014 2015 Premier League season, alongside the kit of Swansea City. After losing 7 home games last season, this tie at Old Trafford was a must win for Louis van Gaal.

However, it was not to be. In perhaps an even worse start than last season Manchester United lost its first home game of the season for the first time in 42 years. Swansea City went 1-0 up after 28 minutes putting the home team on the back-foot. Wearing his new captain armband, Wayne Rooney equalized in the 53rd minute to give hope to the fans anxiously watching from the stands at Old Trafford.

Swansea City had other ideas and Sigurdsson added a 2nd on the 72nd minute. This shocked the thousands of fans and the players wearing the brand new Manchester United home jersey 2014 2015. With the score line still at 1-2 the final whistle blew and disappointment once again lay heavy on the hearts and minds of all connected with Manchester United.

Along with several other Premier League teams Louis van Gaal was struggling with player fitness following the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Robin van Persie was not part of this weekends starting line-up. However, there is a clear and urgent need at Old Trafford for new players before the close of the transfer window on 1st September.

Whether or not new members will be added to this struggling soccer squad remains to be seen however, it is clear that Louis van Gaal will be feeling the pressure after this weekends loss. He must win and finish in 4th place or higher under the terms of the Adidas soccer kit deal that begins next season.

Next Sunday Manchester United face Sunderland away from home, a different kit, a similar starting line-up, but can Louis van Gaal repeat the success he procured in the International Champions Cup?
