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.

For United fans looking for a 19th title-  BELIEVE

I suppose they could argue that one should vote not for one's own benefit, but for society as a whole.
However, I suspect it's more that it's never quite filtered in that historically Conservative governments benefit only the top 8% of the country in terms of wealth.

You would think that 2 members of the Bulli club as PM and Chanc. would be a clue plus another clown as Mayor - who the hell voted for him - mind you 10m voted for Thatcher - so we have to play the long long gane ; wouldn't 20 years of Tories and Privitisation be fun , Marx could be right yet.

Goes back to the critical thinking issue I mentioned the other day. Chasing millions of pounds wasted on "benefit cheats" is a better vote winner than chasing the billions in unpaid tax by major corporations.
The only way, long term, to right the situation, is to teach children properly.

Information , information , education , education ; then the masses will realise that they have been well and truly shafted for so long. So yes critical thinking but you need the information and that is where computers , thanks to Mr Gates amongst others , has done us a great service. We will all know who benefits from privitisation , from invading Iraq etc etc and that the garbage spouted by the press and politicians is garbage.
