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.

We have had a few who weren't suited to the Premiership and did well abroad, Forlan and Rossi spring to mind immediately.

However that's not really want I meant. We will lose quite a lot of the transfer fee, in fact all of it I would imagine so that's not great business. If he does well it will be a double whammy. ie bought him for too much and sold him for too little and he did sh1te whilst he was here.

Wasn't the Roma manager asked at a press confernce about the chances of Strootman leaving and he replied it would take a 3 figure fee.

The press interpreted this as €100m or £79m.

Italian clubs are generally broke so they always talk big prices when selling players.

Everyone would like to see a solid centreback added to the squad but LvG is not a man to panic buy.

When asked whether he regarded the goal as a wonder strike by Pjanic or an error on the part of his substitute, Van Gaal said with a smile:
