Manchester United squad picture 1921/22

The 1921–22 season was Manchester United’s 26th season in the Football League and 11th in the First Division.

At the end of the season, United finished last in the league and were relegated to the Second Division, where they had not played since 1906.

In January, more sadness hit the club when Jack Robson, who stepped down in October, died. Airdrieonians manager John Chapman took over on 1st November but was unable to prevent relegation.
