THE year 2003 has become the most successful in Manchester United's history in terms of league results.

Their amazing record of 29 wins, four draws and just three defeats means they have averaged more points per match in the calendar year than in any other in their 125-year history, with a remarkable 2.52 per game.

The previous best year had been 1904, when United were in the second division and finished the year with 28 wins, six draws and three defeats, to average 2.43, if you use the modern system of three points for a win.

The Reds have come close to beating the record several times in recent years, most notably in 1993, when a marathon year of fixtures saw them end up with 31 wins, nine draws and three defeats for an average of 2.37.

They also averaged 2.35 in the Treble year of 1999 and 2.30 in 2000, while the Busby Babes, in their pomp, averaged 2.28 in 1956 with 27 wins, eight draws and four defeats.

McClaren backs United to stay unbeaten

MIDDLESBROUGH boss Steve McClaren has claimed Manchester United can stay unbeaten for the rest of the season as they sweep towards yet another Premiership title.

McClaren was impressed by what he saw during his side's 1-0 defeat to Sir Alex Ferguson's men at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday.

Last season United's Boxing Day loss to Boro proved to be their last and McClaren is convinced they can stay unbeaten in the new year.

"United are a team capable of going 20 or 25 games unbeaten and the way they are going, they have got a chance," he said.

"They are always hungry and the manager is hungry. They've got the experience because they have been there before and they have to be favourites because of that."

Yes we have made a fantastic start to the season it's great to see us picking up alot of momentum earlier on and not having to catch up in the second half of the season like we traditionally do.

Saying that I hope we don't peak too early on and run out of fuel like Arsenal did last season, but I think we are too experienced to do that. We just need to keep steady and keep squeezing 3 points out of every team we come across.

Hopefully whoever Fergie brings in over January will make us an even stronger and complete team so we have a good chance of winning the title.

Good to see you so active kingkobra83 :cool: We might need a 3rd FM round here soon ;).
