Welcome to the Sligo Branch of the Manchester United Supporters Club, we will update you with all the latest news from the Sligo Branch of Manchester United Supporters Club.
United suffered their first league defeat of the season at home to Aston Villa on Saturday. in another end to end game with both side creating chances, Villa took the lead in the 88th min thanks to a header at the near post from a corner.

Everton at home on Saturday is next.
Champions League: United kicked off the Group stage away at 4th seed Young Boys on Tues 14 September in what was a game that all expected United to win easily.
Young Boys were at it from the start before Ronaldo put United ahead in the 13th min and all looked rosey in the garden. That changed on 37mins when Wan Bissaka misjudged a challange and he received a straight red card. From then on United were on the back foot. Young Boys levelled on 66mins and it looked like United were going to salvage a point only Young Boys to score the winner in Fergie time.
Young Boy's final attack was broken up, and all Lingard had to do was hoof it away. Instead, he tried for some reason to play it back to David de Gea. Jordan Siebatcheu races clear and fires home.
With 5 games to go, there is time to recover, but that is a very disappointing result.
