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.

If we win our remaining four games and there is a win for either City or Arsenal when they play each other we will definitely be in the top four. Methinks that isn't going to happen but we might still steal a place as I can see both those teams dropping points elsewhere.

I can see odd tickets being available on the day nineiron so its worth a trip down there anyway imo. On the face of it that's a pretty bold prediction but after the initial scramble there always seem to be a few spares going around

Season ticket holders who have been to every cup match in both FA Cup and Europa and Execs total 29,000 and I think we have 28,000 tickets. On top of that loads of those tickets will be given to players and officials so if everybody applies there will be loads who have done every match and still don't get a ticket but how many of them will actually make the effort to go down there without? Not many I suspect.

There does seem to be a push to sell season tickets quickly even offering incentives ive read.

Why is the question,
They hardly have cash flow issues so has to be another reason.

The announcement of a new manager would create a feel good factor and renewed hope and tickets should fly out the door.

Van gaal staying and a lot of people might not bother even someone as dedicated as peter has indicated he probably wouldnt renew his.

Worrying that they are trying to push them early.

Seven days and a few hours later, I've finally brought myself to see what you're saying. All put is this:

"peter the butcher
Everton should get rid of Martinez asap, they have almost gone as far back as we have and I'm not sure which one of LVG or Martinez talks most rubbish

Its to the credit of the Everton players that they built up a bit of momentum in the 2nd half and gave it a proper go because it was quite apparent they weren't as well prepared as they should have been in the first half. Mentally as much as anything I suspect"


The first half was a f***ing disgrace. How we weren't 3-0 down, I'll never know. Yes, "mentally" is right. Losing the derby is bad, but it's then 2 years before that that makes us miserable!

I thought we battered you second half. Bizarrely, it was our crap penalty that got us going. Then, once we got going, we were f***g brilliant. All over you. You were hanging on for dear life. Then that complacent c*** Stones didn't track a run.

Agree with that don today we played in fits and starts , started well but look dazed after Leicester equalised and failed in second half to produce any clear cut chances, thought rojo and Valencia today were poor, rashford looks tired and was off the pace , not good enough im afraid we don't really deserve fourth and that is damming for a club like Manchester United.
