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:

Defeat away to Watford on Saturday left United reeling and managerless as they hit a brick wall, again.

The game was only a few minutes old when McTominay conceded a penalty which De Gea saved only for the rebound to be knocked in. VAR ordered a retake as the scorer had encroached into the box, unbelievably De Gea saved again, this time the ball was cleared.

The let off didn't wake up United and Watford continued to threaten, before taking the lead on 28 mins thanks to United old boy Josh King and Sarr doubled their lead on 44mins. 

Van de Beek, came on at half time and injected a bit of freshness into the side and when Ronaldo selflessly nodded down for him he headed home to give United hope. United did create enough chances in the 2nd half when Maguire got a 2nd yellow for taking down Cleverly after he was caught doddering on the ball it was always going to an uphill battle. 

Watford sealed the win, and Ole's fate, with 2 injury time goals.

 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Following a very poor string of performances and results Ole has left his role as United manager. It is not unexpected, and something needed to be done. However, let's not forget the lift he gave us when he came in to replace Mourinho almost 3 years ago. We had some great nights, great wins and no doubt heartbreaking defeats.

Michael Carrick is going to take charge until an Interm manager is put in place untill the end of the season. 

 

Champions League: United, post Ole, with Michael Carrick in the hot seat beat Villarreal in a tight game away on Matchday 5. Carrick set United up to keep it tight at the back, which they did, although De Gea was called into action a few times to many. The changes were made on 66mins when Rashford and Fernandes came un to lift United and set them on the front foot. Fred forced an error on 78mins and Ronaldo lifted the ball over the stranded keeper to give United the lead. Right on 90mins Fred again won the ball deep, fed Rashford who squared for Fernandes to toe poke it on to Sancho for him to fire the ball into the net off the underside of the crossbar and secure the points.

That win was enough to see United through to the knock out stages but couppled with a 3-3 draw between Young Boys & Atalanta United progress as group winner, with a game to spare.
