Manchester United: Power Ranking Busby Babes vs. Fergie's Class of 99

The story and the legacy of the Busby Babes is a tale that stretches over more than 50 years, from their triumphs before the tragedy of the Munich Air Disaster in 1958 to United's third major European win in 2008.

In the 20th century, United had three undeniably great teams—two managed by Sir Matt Busby and a third put together by Sir Alex Ferguson.

They were the 1999 treble winners of Keane, Beckham, Giggs and Scholes, the 1968 European Cup winners of Best, Law and Charlton, and, of course, the Busby Babes.

Power ranking such a trio is a difficult assignment, especially considering that most people only have first-hand experience of the most modern of the three teams.

Yet based on the accounts from those who watched them and enjoyed them, we will attempt to gauge the strength of each great side against the other, from the sheer equilibrium of Fergie's comeback kings to Busby's two legendary sides.
