Glad to help. I must say, though, don't listen to anybody who hates United- most are just jealous!
As of now, Manchester United are currently second in the standings of the Premier League (their league). United have 19 points, while the leaders, Chelsea, have 21 points. For each win, the team gets 3 points. For each draw (when a match ends in a tie), each team gets 1 point. A loss gets you none. There are a total of 20 teams in the Premiership- every team plays each other 2 times, once in their home stadium and then in the other team's stadium. Manchester United's home stadium is Old Trafford, located in Greater Manchester, England.
Historically, United are the most successful team in the Premiership. Since the creation of the Premier League in 1992, here is a timeline of United's victories-
1992/93 - Inaugural members of the Premier League
1992/93 - Eric Cantona signs from Leeds United for £1.2m
1992/93 - Win FA Carling Premiership
1993/94 - Win FA Carling Premiership and FA Cup
1995/96 - Win FA Carling Premiership and FA Cup
1996/97 - Win FA Carling Premiership
1998/99 - Win FA Carling Premiership, European Cup, and FA Cup
1999/00 - Win FA Carling Premiership
2000/01 - Win FA Carling Premiership
2002/03 - Win Barclaycard Premiership
2003/04 - Win FA Cup
2005/06 - Win League Cup
2006/07 - Win Barclays Premiership
2007/08 - Win Barclays Premier League, win European Cup
2008/09 - Win Barclays Premier League, Carling Cup, World Club Championship.
As you can see, they are good!
Football doesn't work like many other sports, for its divided into regions and countries and stuff . For example, United, in the past year, have played in the Premier League, Champions League, and the FA Cup. United are officially members of the Premier League, the top-flight English league. They also compete in the FA Cup, which is another English competition, in a knockout format. They also usually compete in an exclusive league reserved for the best- the Champions , or European Cup. The Champions League has teams from all around the world, in different Leagues (La Liga, Bundesliga, Premier League etc.).
Sorry, I know this is very complex, but you're talking about one of the most popular and historically relevant football club in the world. They f*cking kick ***! This is really just a brief overview of the clubs history and a very short outline of how it works. For more information and updates, I suggest these sites-
-Those are just a few sites, Google: Manchester United for more! I'd check Wikipedia for a really good history and check out http://www.premierleague.com/page/manchester-unite... another great site.
PS- One more thing. Manchester United go by many names: Manchester United, Man United, Man Utd, United, and the Red Devils (their team name) are common names. However, never use the name Man U- it pains me just to type it! It is a huge insult!! NEVER USE IT!!
This is a great time to get interested in United!
