The last time Manchester went five seasons without a trophy was from 1968 to 1973. This could repeat again this season in 2022 if it ends with no trophy (2017 to 2022), and the difference is 50years. The trophy draught for Manchester United continues. Since 2017, the English club have never won the trophy. Fans of English clubs like Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Leicester etc. have been comparing the performance of the club in the last five years.
Yesterday FA Cup game against Middlesbrough turned out to be another dramatic one for Manchester United. Their fight towards ending a five year trophy draught had come to an end. Cristiano Ronaldo who turns 37years today missed a crucial penalty during the first half of the game. But they managed to have a draw after both side scored a goal.
Their dreams of moving to the next stage and probably lifting a trophy was shattered after Anthony Elanga missed a penalty. Their opponent, Middlesbrough however capitalized on their performance last night to punish them.
Middlesbrough defender, Sol Bamba who had an inspiring story scored a winner penalty goal to send them to the next stage of the FA Cup. He had been away from football since last year after he was diagnosed with a cancer disease.

The FA Cup was the best moment for the club to end their trophy draught possibly but it has been ruined. They have been eliminated by Middlesbrough. This season will soon end, and if they don’t win any trophy, history could repeat itself.
