Sir Alex Ferguson has issued a video message to Manchester United season ticket holders restating the club's desire to regain their Premier League title - but warning of further last-gasp drama in the years to come.
After so many famous final-day successes, this season the boot was on the other foot. When United concluded their final game at Sunderland, they were technically champions, only to be flattened by Sergio Aguero's late strike at the Etihad Stadium as Manchester City struck twice in stoppage time to end their 44-year wait for the championship.
However, now the dust has settled, Ferguson feels it is just another chapter in United's compelling story - a point he has made to keep fans within the Red Devils' season ticket fold. "When you look back on last season, it tells you the story of Manchester United," he said. "There is no club in the world who can create the drama that we created last year."
