Manchester United F.C., Men's Retro Soccer Jersey, 1984, Plain Back, "Replica"
The 1984–85 season wasManchester United's 83rd season inthe Football League, and their 10th consecutive season in the top division ofEnglish football. It was the first season at the club for new signingsGordon Strachan,Jesper OlsenandAlan Brazil, whileMark Hughes became established in the forward line alongsideFrank Stapleton, withNorman Whitesidemoving into central midfield to replace the departedRay Wilkins. Hughes ended the season as United's top scorer with 24 goals (16 in the league) and was also votedPFA Young Player of the Year. Brazil, however, failed to establish himself as a regular player, with Atkinson alternating between him andFrank Stapletonas the club's second striker to play alongside the prolific Hughes.
United began the season with four successive draws, having led in three of them, and remained unbeaten in their opening 11 matches (eight in the league) before going down 3–0 atAston Villa. United entered 1985 unbeaten atOld Traffordto stay in contention at the top of the table, but lost successive home matches toSheffield WednesdayandCoventry City, before embarking on a 10-match unbeaten run which took in big wins over Villa (Hughes scoring a hat-trick) and Stoke.
An uneventful final came to life 12 minutes from time when, with the score goalless,Kevin Moranwas dismissed by refereePeter Willisfor a 'professional foul' onPeter Reid– the first ever sending-off in an FA Cup final. United's ten men held on to force extra time, where they found extra reserves of energy and won the trophy thanks to Whiteside's brilliant curling effort in the 110th minute.
