1912/13 – Manchester United

Manchester United squad picture 1912/13

Manchester United were rocked at the start of the season when Ernest Mangnall left to become manager of rivals Manchester City. His last game in charge was, ironically, the home defeat to City at Old Trafford.

Mangnall was succeeded by club secretary John Bentley. However, he was rather less successful in this role than his predecessor; he took little interest in the running of the team and largely left the players to their own devices. As a result, the club slumped from being title challengers to barely avoiding relegation, and Bentley handed over to Jack Robson in 1914. He remained involved with Manchester United until retiring from club administration, in 1916, due to ill health.

Still, United did finish a creditable fourth place in the table, leading the division at early points in the season.
