Infographic: The Manchester United Trophy Collection

The league season has ended, and the honours have mostly been distributed. Juventus and Barcelona look like the big winners from the continent, with each looking for a treble, and guaranteed at least a double. In England, Chelsea have been the dominant team, claiming the league and the League Cup.

2014-15 has gone the Blues way, and Manchester United haven’t been in and among the awards, but this is just the reflection of a year’s results. A lot of United fans must hark back to the glory days of Sir Alex, when a title challenge was the bare minimum expectation. Those years were simply the latest in a long and glorious history of collecting silverware, not only from the country, but from the continent and the world.

While talking about the club, and debating about trophy hauls and achievements, we often throw numbers like ’20 league titles’ about, without fully understanding and appreciating the significance of such an achievement. It is a figure that speaks of consistent excellence that has stood the test of time. Great players come and go, but Manchester United, with achievements such as these, have shown that they are an institution that go beyond players, and the temporal nature of a few years.

The dominance within the country has been reflected in Europe as well. Manchester United have won the top tier European competition 3 times, once, most inspiringly, shortly after the Munich Disaster of 1958. Even in 1999, they won it in the most dramatic fashion, with 2 late strikes sealing a stunning comeback win against the mighty Bayern Munich.

See the image below, to fathom what it takes to build a collection, and a trophy cabinet like the one at Old Trafford. Many many years of hard work, and quality, are simply the basic building blocks of a classy structure like Manchester United. So United fans, get nostalgic, and enjoy.
