Not long before transfer window opens and although Sir Alex Ferguson says he is not a big fan of the January opportunity, he has been known to come up with the odd surprise!

Newspapers say Pepe Reina is a target. True he is unsettled at United but would he move to United knowing the "rumpus" that caused. Also United have earmarked young Anders Lindergaard as the long time successor to Van Der Sar but Reina much better at the moment.

The other name that keeps getting mentioned at Old Trafford is the Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez. I heard that Inter were going to sign him but he is waiting to see if United move for him first. Not sure about truth in this because Antonio Valencia is making a quicker recovery than first thought and I would have thought Sir Alex might be prioritising  a centre half and midfielder but who knows.

Anderson is starting to show a lot more of his undoubted ability but the defence is key for United if they want another title. Sunderland were not great today but United's defence was absolutely solid, unlike much of this season. Anyway we will find out a bit more at Birmingham on Tuesday as they will be tested a lot more by a fresh side with plenty of time to prepare.

Anyway good luck to fans at all clubs in this festive period. It could go a long way to deciding your season.

He hit a putt past the hole then run after it and hit it back towards hole while it wad rolling was really funny to be honest

I like to back players who have done well at a comp same with horses

But I'd backed him the tournament before and he looked like he was just short but could be coming to the boil

When the fun stops Grin. Last bets in this one sided battle against the layers...

Panama dog dirt, qualified with a negative goal count. Belgium a bit like their Mancunian red devil namesakes, bit of a flat track bully team, even got Big Rom up top.  Panama will undoubtedly put 10 behind the ball & make plenty of fouls. The following mixed bag o sh1te might find a winner or two if i'm lucky.

2pts Armando Cooper to be carded @4/1 slybet... midfield clogger.
1pt  Panama Red Card @15/2 BFSB... fkin due one.

4pts Belgium -2 @2/1 exchange

2pts Bel win to nil,Bel 2 goals or more, Pan 20 booking pts or more @7/2 slybet

2pts Lukaku to score 2 or more @4/1 exchange

2pts Lukaku 2+goals, 5+ Bel corners, 20+Panama booking pts @15/2 slybet

1pt  Lukaku to score a header @6/1 slybet

1pt  De Bruyne to score outside the box @10/1 slybet

1pt  Lukaku header, De Bruyne outside box 66/1 slybet

1pt  Lukaku & Hazard to score, Cooper & Gomez to be booked 50/1 bfsb

1pt  Romelu Lukaku to score 1st & Gabriel Gomez to be sent off 175/1 bfsb

1pt  Eden Hazard scores 1st; Belgium scores over 2.5 goals; Gabriel Gomez carded & Penalty Awarded 125/1 bfsb

Clearly the workings of a disturbed mind... it's safe to say i'll be concentrating on Royal Ascot as from today.

Pretty mediocre fayre yesterday at the WC yesterday.. a dearth of goals as all 3 jollies scraped home 1-0. Spent far too long for my own good looking at todays 3 but in true mug fashion i've found a bet or two.

Not surprisingly the market doesn't fancy too many goals in todays 3 offerings with the benchmark over / under 2.5 mkts all strongly favouring unders. Den v Aus on paper looks another bore, Arg v Cro could be a good game but in France v Peru i think there's cause for optimism in a game breaking out.

A few stats... in quals 6 of France's 10 went over 2.5.. 5 saw btts. Their 5 recent friendlies saw 17 goals, overs in 3 & btts in 4. The snoozefest in the opener somehow ended 2-1 also. Plenty of quality up front... the water carrier just doesn't seem how best to set them up after 4 years in the job.

As for Peru... 12 of their 18 quals went over 2.5, 11 saw btts. Their 5 friendlies in 2018 saw them scoring 10, conceeding only 1, over twice, bbts once.

Peru haven't been at a WC for a while, they ain't gonna bow out today with any regrets. Against Denmark they looked very lively, dominated pocession & the shot stats, missed a pen etc etc. Hopefully they'll have a go today again and we'll see a bit of entertainment.

Over 2.5 is 2.36... BTTS... 2.32... France win & BTTS 4.5 on the exchange...

Antoine Griezmann to score first and either France to win 2-1 or France to win 3-1 @20/1 & Pogba to score a header @20/1 both with slybet for some filth.

Anx, I'm looking at a substantial loss on red cards as things stand. I read dolph's write up which made good sense, I also thought that the use of VAR would result in more red cards and pens. Unreal the number of pens and yet we've only had one red card.

I've bet on the spread markets, over 11 red cards. Need another 10 to break even Sad

On the upside my only other spread bet is on Japan goals. They have two already.

I need three to break even and anything after that is the equivalent of 2 red cards financially for me. Hoping Japan can advance out of the group to give me at least another game. If they don't advance I hope they get beaten 5-4 in their last two games Laugh
