The current Premier League is still a major force in world football. The birthplace of the richest clubs in the present, such as Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, … Let’s learn more about the history of these clubs.
Manchester is one of the industrial cities of England from the early 19th century to the present. Therefore, the first team of this club was composed of railway workers.
In 1878 before the need to play football for railway workers, an unidentified person at that time formed the Newton Heath L&YR Club to compete with other teams in the city. The main members of the club are the staff of the passenger car and the ceiling car of Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (LYR).
In 1889, the club applied to join the Football League – the largest professional football tournament in England at that time. However, the proposal was put aside because the organizers thought that the club was not capable at that time. However, they did not give up and paid off. The Heathens continues to apply for participation in Football Alliances – a subsidiary of Football League. And after three years of proven operational and operating capacity finally joined the Football League, in 1892.
In 1902, a meeting of Newton Heath’s players and executives at that time took place about the club’s new name. The names Manchester Centrals and Manchester Celtics were given instead. But Davis (the club’s biggest investor at the time) wanted a name to make the connection in the city. So Manchester United – the “Unequal Link” of millions of fans was born from that.
MU development period: In 1945, an event completely changed MU right then. Matt Busby joined Manchester United and was considered a “genius godfather”. He and Jimmy Murphy turned MU into a footballing force at the time. At the end of the 1946/1947 season, MU achieved the runner-up position, the best achievement in 36 years of establishing the team. In 1948, for the first time in history, after 39 years of establishment, Manchester officially won the FA Cup championship.
The peak of MU: The first years of Sir Alex were not easy. He was almost fired after three seasons did not help MU much now, but the FA championship in 1989 saved his situation.
But if at that time, the decision to fire Sir Alex was approved, then MU will certainly not be a strong team in the world. In the 1998-1999 season, Sir Alex won the legendary treble: C1, Premier League and FA Cup. His MU at that time was a real power in Europe.
MU logo: The MU logo is the red devil. Many people believe that the MU symbol is the Satan demon that Europeans are always afraid of. But according to many concepts, the real demon that brings disease and horrifying obsession is Lucifer. Satan manifests agility and intelligence. With red and gold reminds viewers of the strength and ambition of this club.

Manchester City was founded in 1880 by Anna Connel and two members of St. Mark’s church in Gorton. At birth, Man City was called the Ardwick Association Football Club.

The team bought the hottest player of the time. Brazilian player Robinho, for example, from Real Madrid for £ 32.5 million, broke the Premier League record at that time.
In the 2011-2012 season, the MC continued to spend money on player purchases. They kept winning and leading the chart at that time. But until the 36th round they achieved the NHA championship after 44 years of waiting.
