Manchester United: 10 Reasons They Are Best Club in the World

Manchester United are the best football club in the world.

How do you assess that, you ask? Of course you can't do that on one week, month or even season's results, nor one major trophy. Nottingham Forest won the European Cup in 1979 and 1980, but their Chairman and Manager have both just resigned and they languish in The Championship.

So obviously whatever measures you use have to be over a period of time. Consistency is the key.

Among the inevitable contenders are Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Chelsea. The two Milan sides have slipped and the South American sides don't really come into contention, mainly because there isn't the same amount of money in their competitions.

So what we need is a composite measure. While no club will come out atop all categories, we contend that Manchester United is the best overall.

Please add other contenders and other reasons why, but for the time being, here are the reasons United are the best.
