Matt Busby's dream of winning the European Cup was finally made a reality on May 29th at Wembley when United beat Benfica 4-1 in extra time. The side were also runners up in the League Championship.

United had responded to an open day defeat at Goodison with an unbeaten run of eleven games. Two goals from George Best in a 2-1 win at Anfield on November 11th ended Liverpool's 100% home record and took United to the top. They remained there until defeated at lowly Coventry on March 16th - only their third defeat in sixteen games but crucially their second in succession.

Despite a George Best goal after just 35 seconds, they lost 3-1 at home to City on March 27th. Defeat in their final game at home to Sunderland handed City the title.

Four days later in the European Cup semi final second leg United, with a 1-0 advantage from the home leg, were 3-1 down at half time in the Bernabeu. Sadler was thrown forward into attack and United's faith in attacking football repaid with two goals in three minutes.

A fortnight later they became Champions of Europe. Watching from his hospital bed was United's captain Denis Law, who had missed the last month of the season after a knee operation.

United embraced the growing use of technology in kit design, wearing a new V neck aertex shirt on their summer tour of Australia. The aertex shirt was also worn in the Charity Shield and in their early League games. Designed to keep the player's cool, there was short and long sleeved versions.

At Anfield United wore their traditional black socks with red and white tops. Move your mouse over the kits to see the variants.
