The Season in brief
With the purchase of Pat Dunne and John Connelly, and with George Best now a regular, Busby's post Munich team building appeared complete.
United won only one of their opening six games, but recovered and emerged as one of the three sides chasing the title, with Leeds United and Chelsea. When Leeds visited Old Trafford at the beginning of December United had not been beaten for three months and they topped the table after winning thirteen of their previous fifteen League games. The run included victories against the defending Champions at Anfield, and at Stamford Bridge against table topping Chelsea. Determined not to be beaten, when Bobby Collins put Leeds ahead early in the second half their resolve hardened. United fans witnessed for the first time Revie's Leeds - hard, cynical and ugly.
Although United lost to them in the F.A. Cup semi final, they won at Elland Road a fortnight later and, by winning their next three games, took the title on goal average from Leeds, who went onto lose to Liverpool in the Cup Final.
Football had triumphed over cynicism. United’s longest season finally ended on June 16th with defeat at Ferencvaros in the Inter Cities Fairs Cup semi-final rpyay-ff.
United's kits remained unchanged from the previous season.
A new blue change kit was worn for the first time at Stoke on September 19th.
