For Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson, 2012 is up there with some of the club's worst years under the Scot. 1989, replete with a 5-1 loss at Manchester City and that banner could have been the end of Ferguson after three years and no trophies at Old Trafford. 1995 included losing the league on the final day, an FA Cup final loss and the sale of Mark Hughes, Paul Ince and Andrei Kanchelskis. How about 2005? The Glazer family completed its takeover of the club, the football was dire, Roy Keane left and United were eliminated from the Champions League at the group stage. 2012's awfulness for Reds hinged on one moment deep into stoppage-time as City clutched the most extraordinary title win since 1989.

With no Champions League football and an early but chastening exit to Liverpool in the FA Cup behind them (this would also become the first year United have not played at Wembley in the years it has hosted football matches since 1991), United went into the final day of the Premier League season as underdogs. On Easter Sunday, the Reds were eight points clear with six games remaining but surrendered feebly at Wigan three days later before throwing away a two-goal lead at home to draw 4-4 with Everton the following week. City meanwhile had won all their games since their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on 8 April and captain Vincent Kompany settled a pivotal Manchester derby in the clubs' antepenultimate league fixture, enabling the Blues to leapfrog United by virtue of their superior goal difference.
