Man United 1998-01 👍🏻

First team to win three consecutive league titles in the Premier League era. First (and only) English team to ever win the league, FA Cup and Champions League in the same season. First English team to be recognised as champions of the world in club football.

I still don’t get how people can argue this. :eek:

They could potentially argue about the quality of the opposition back then. Like it was only really Arsenal that were under United's skin, move to the 2000's and you add Chelsea and Liverpool into the mix, then Spurs and Man City.
Nevertheless I still rate that side a lot, I mean to this day no other team in the Prem has emulated what that United team did.

1998/99 - 79 points (2nd place 78 points)
1999/00 - 91 points (2nd place 73 points)
2000/21 - 80 points (2nd place 70 points)

The league points aren't particularly impressive and it shows that title challengers were poor too. Being the best of a bunch of turds isn't the greatest. You determine being great by beating top quality. You look at the golden tennis era and it's because there was such high quality.

Quality of footballs is so much higher since. The Man Utd team may be one of the most successful in terms of silverware but doesn't really get close in terms of greatest in terms of quality.

Liverpool with Klopp. What the manager made of the reds is admirable and remarkable. Ferguson's United from 98 to 01 as next. Manchester's season in 99 by winning the triple was unique.

I'd choose the Man City team under Guardiola, just for the enjoyment of watching them above the others.
