Comments from our visitors about this date:


The Premier League wasn't ready for Mourinho back then. That Chelsea side were unbelievably dominant. Back then, most teams were still playing 4-4-2. They struggled to deal with 4-3-3, as Chelsea always had an extra man in the middle. They won two league titles back-to-back before everyone started to switch their tactics around.

Take me back to June 2, 2004

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Wednesday, June 2, 2004. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

In the United States, the Memorial Day weekend of 2004 has recently come and gone. To many, this means that the summer has officially started. The summer of 2004 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "Burn" by Usher is at the top of the singles charts, while "F.U.R.B." by Frankee is the number-one song in the UK.

George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Shrek 2 is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. In technology news, more and more people are beginning to gain access to the Internet. Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores.

People are using a software program called LimeWire to share music, software, and videos. Unfortunately, it is also a haven for computer viruses. Smartphones don't exist yet. There are no Androids or iPhones. Cameras on phones are quickly becoming the norm. However, the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality.

Internet users are using MSN Messenger and AIM to chat with each other online. It's 2004, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Usher, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, OutKast, Mario Winans, the Terror Squad and Ciara. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Ronald Reagan, Ray Charles, Marlon Brando, and Rick James would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Everybody Loves Raymond", "Malcolm in the Middle", "Fear Factor", and "Without a Trace". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", "SSX 3", "Manhunt", and "Rome: Total War". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Bear in the Big Blue House", "The Proud Family", "Romeo!", and "Dave the Barbarian".

Popular toys at the moment include the PlayStation 2, Bratz dolls, LEGO Clikits, and Mighty Beanz.
