This past week, Manchester City secured the 2017/18 Premier League title. As wretched as the experience was (to a long-time United fan), there’s no denying that City played flowing, beautiful football that was streets ahead of their Premier League rivals.
The only solace, if any, is in knowing that this City team was not the first Premier League team to play aesthetically pleasing football and achieve success. While the Arsenal sides of the early 2000s (like The Invincibles) were highly successful and pleasing to the eye, perhaps the most lethal and flowing football side to grace the English game before the Cityzens were the United teams from 2006-2009.
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane and revisit why Sir Alex Ferguson‘s last great team was so monumental.
