A decade later, Man United still toils in Ferguson's shadow
Nine years, five permanent managers, $1 billion spent on players and zero Premier League titles.

And the big concern heading into the new season? United appears to be further away than ever from reclaiming its status as the top team in England. Just look at last season. United finished 35 points behind champion Manchester City in the Premier League, and 34 points behind Liverpool, to cap a campaign when it had as many managers — three — as matches in the two domestic cups.
