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.
Premier League: Thanks God that season is over. The first half of the season was very difficult resulting in Jose Mourinho losing his job after a 3-1 defeat away at Liverpool. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in and lifted everybody associated with the club, from fans to the players and the results that followed dragged our season back into life and into the top 4. Ole was confirmed as our manager on a full time basis and the wheels came off the wagon for the final third. United only won another two games of out 12 and ended the season with a 1-1 draw away at Huddersfield and a home defeat at the hands of Cardiff, both teams heading for the Championship via the trap door.
The feel good factor is long gone, the fans are up in arms, fustration and anger is been directed at the players and Ed Woodward. We need a very good transfer window, pre-season and get back on track right from the kick off next season.
