Jamie Jacksons match report

Here s our Manchester correspondent s handle another humbling defeat for United:

.

.

Met Pat Jennings at Dublin airport about 15 years earlier, writes Richard Duerden. He looked exactly the like in his playing days. Beautiful thick hair and the inmost voice on the planet. Good fella. However did he use his legs to stop a loose bottle of beer rolling down the aisle?

I sat by Eric Cantona on an early Sunday morning flight from Manchester to Paris, just a couple of days after the notorious Kung Fu kick occurrence, composes Steve Markey. I was checking out the Sunday Times sport area when he took a seat, and the heading was Ou est Cantona? accompanied by a picture of him flying into the crowd. I looked at him, he looked at my paper, smiled his enigmatic smile, closed his eyes and went to sleep.

.

And this from Gautam Grover: I satisfied David Moyes at Chicago O Hara. Was in a hurry so I simply yelled his name. I believe he marvelled someone in the US knew who he was.

* Unless you support Manchester United.

.

If United safeguard anything like they did tonight against Everton on Saturday they will be in difficulty. That s the concern. They bossed belongings however roamed forwards and were caught out of position numerous times when they lost the ball.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær has emerged: The efficiency wasn t excellent enough against a group that ran and worked and hit us on the break. They scored 2 goals that groups do when you put on t protect well. We played a brief corner and forgotten the man in advance which s unforgivable. Two soft objectives. And then we didn t have enough to come back in the second half. We tossed whatever at it however couldn t break them down. We were unsatisfactory. That s it. It s difficult to be favorable when we ve lost the method we have but these players are good gamers and we have a chance on Saturday to start again.

While we wait for some response I ll include some more of your footballers seen in transit stories, which I have actually throughly enjoyed this evening. My most significant claim to popularity is buying a pint in the VIP lounge at Old Trafford flanked by George Best on my left and Bobby Charlton on my right, writes Malc Suttleworth. Ron Atkinson, dressed up to the nines in gold and fur, lagged me chatting to Elton Welsby. Ah, Elton Welsby, the legend himself.

Ah, however was he in transit, Nathan? United are camped out on the edge of the Basaksehir area. Greenwood looks lively but Fernandes and Pogba are yet to find the area to slip the ball through to him. Skrtel has done an outstanding job in marshalling the his defence.

80 minutes: Rafael has actually shown all the attributes that led him to be considered as a bit of a cult hero by United fans. He clatters into both Pogba and Martial and emerges with the ball before springing a counter-attack from which Gulbrandsen wins a corner with a deflected shot.

50 min: Mata plays a smart pass inside to Fernandes on the. The playmaker steams up the right and cuts a ball back towards the charge location, but it s a low one and easily cleared. Given the great headed objective Martial scored, they could do even worse than try to hand a couple of balls up in the air.

Its the second half!

45 minutes: Peep! Axel Tuanzebe, among the Manchester United centre-backs who was awol for much of the first half, has been replaced by Scott McTominay. Matic appears to have returned into central defence.

And yes, that Demba Bachelors degree clear run and surface was reminiscent of a minute made well-known in tune including Steven Gerrard.

A picture of Tuanzebe on a milk container would be proper, he s a totally lost kid out there, composes Peter Littley. Would have thought Maguire could do more to support however possibly he s already kid minding for Shaw and Matic. What a sorry performance, this certainly can t be what OGS drew up?

A couple of more for the collection of gamers identified while taking a trip:.

@GreggBakowski I was on the exact same plane to London as Michael Carrick and Vincent Kompany the Monday morning after the Aguerooooo title winner. Kompany was jubilant, positioning and signing autographs for photos, Carrick unsurprisingly less so – somewhat grumpily keeping his head down!

I ve just seen a replay of the first goal that United conceded. It really is ridiculous. It followed United played a brief corner and kept every player in the Basaksehir half, even when they were simply keeping ownership on the edge of their challengers area. They could sell this as a Christmas funny DVD:.

And here s Simon Kerr with a couple of crackers: My experience with footballers on the travel makes me realise just how essential Mr 10% is to them, otherwise they d sign any old crap. I saw Bryan Robson in the 80s next to a conveyor belt at the checkout of Roy Halls (does that count as taking a trip)? He signed the back of a 5kg tub of marge which was all we had to hand at the time. And on a train from Manchester to London to view the 2002 WC and visit my long suffering Oldham fan brother, I sat opposite Iain Dowie. Dowie who sporting called my sibling, after which he put his scribble on the within cover of a Dan Brown book. Dan Brown? Seriously?

Manchester United have actually not discovered Europe to be a comfort zone away from their domestic travails. They ve defended atrociously. That Martial objective will just have raised the mood a little at half-time, mind. Solskjær still has some tinkering to do. Back in a bit.

Half-time: Basaksehir 2-1 Manchester United.

44 min: I believe a more direct technique may fit United. Whenever they go forwards in numbers they appear to forget that they need to leave some gamers back to safeguard.

Objective! Basaksehir 2-1 Manchester United (Martial 42).

Fernandes does develop something for Basaksehir. He miscontrols in midfield and the ball pops backwards to Mata, who is on the back foot and is outmuscled by Kahveci. He races up the left wing and pulls a low ball back for Ba, who skillfully steps over the ball and permits Visca to fire home strongly from the edge of the location. A fine surface.

It s Basaksehir s initially ever win in the Champions League. United s defending was diabolical in that first half. A double-ricochet means it s a United goal-kick. 66 min: There s audible laughter as Demba Bachelors degree attempts to beat Henderson from the halfway line only to scuff his shot and watch it dribble through to the United keeper. Ideally a reference of the excellent George Best will alter United s luck, composes John Hubbard.
