Similar to their results today, Manchester United were dominant in the 1950s, never finishing outside of the top 10, and securing three Championships and two F.A. Cup Final victories. They began to struggle in 1961/62, finishing 15th, then narrowly avoided relegation with a 19th place finish in 1963 (though in that same season they defeated Leicester City to win the F.A. Cup). In 1963/64 they were back on form with a second place finish in the League, followed by the Championship in 1965.
Johnny Giles was transferred from Manchester United to Leeds United in August 1963.
