1973

Manchester Evening News - - NOSTALGIA -

JAN­UARY 6: Foot­baller Ge­orge Gra­ham plays for Manch­ester United against his for­mer club Ar­se­nal at their home ground High­bury.

It wasn’t a happy re­turn for the Scot­tish mid­fielder who’d signed for the Red Devils that sea­son. United lost 3-1 with their soli­tary goal com­ing from Brian Kidd.

It wasn’t a vin­tage sea­son for United ei­ther. They fin­ished 18th in the league and man­ager Frank O’Far­rell was sacked in De­cem­ber 1972 to be re­placed by for­mer Scot­land boss Tommy Docherty.

Gra­ham ended up mak­ing 43 league ap­pear­ances for United, scor­ing two goals, be­fore mov­ing on to Portsmouth in 1974.
