On this day in United history…
From May 2003 to October 2004 Arsenal went on a run of 49 games unbeaten and earned them the record for the longest run of unbeaten League matches. While during this time they drew matches, they never lost a match.
This run would come to an end on 14 October 2004 thanks to Wayne Rooney. The goal, which doubled United’s lead, was also Rooney’s first league goal for United.

Jose Mourinho: Wayne is a legend
On this Day in United History…
On 31 August 2004, Wayne Rooney joined Manchester United from his boyhood club of Everton. In his first appearance for the reds, he scored a hattrick in the Champions League against Turkish club Fenerbahce. From then on he became a shinning star in United’s lineup.
In January 2017, he broke Sir Bobby’s long-standing record of 249 career goals with United and is the only player to have scored 250 goals for Manchester United.
The 2016/2017 season proved to be Rooney’s last season with United and before the 2017/2018 season began he returned to Everton. There is no doubt however that he will always be remembered as a United legend.
Congratulations to Ex-Red Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen on the upcoming birth of their fourth child!
