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.

First impression of Lindelof , he's a ball player and will bring the ball out of defence and set up attacks, he did it last night, he's a John Stones type that initially anyway will get caught out on occasions when wanting to play around with it to much.

Deffo got the impression that Lukaku needs that initial goal to settle him down.

No club wants to sell real talent and if they absolutely have to they want top top money. Especially if United come knocking.

Dier, I don't think he is a realistic option. Levy may be an obnoxious little **** but the way he pulled City's pants down over Walker was hilarious. £54m for a reserve right back Laugh and I imagine he'd want at least £80m for Dier.

I also doubt Chelsea will sell us Matic.

We might get Perisic but £40 for a 28 year old?

One thing I don't want us to do is sell or swap Martial.

no doubt if City had paid £75 million for Lukaku you would have been laughing at that! Walker wasn't reserve at Spurs, he played 3 times as more minutes as Trippier last season, only being "rotated" once he'd made his intentions of leaving clear to Tottenham.

It's not even the money. 40m-50m for a 28 year old would be fine if I felt Perisic would make an impact. But I don't see it. I don't see any more than an average player who really should be a squad player at best at a club like Utd (of course that can't be the plan if we're going to pay for a 28 year old you'd think).

The lack of links with inspiring or realistic CM's doesn't give great hope for the new season too. I had great hopes for next season, but even since not getting Griezmann it's gone downhill really. The papers seem to think we're obsessed with Dier, again really, an ok, but not spectacular player, again we'd have to be mad to splash out 50m, surely there are better options abroad.

Lukaku should get a good number of goals in games we struggled to win last year, but as a collective right now it doesn't feel like we're any stronger really than last season, so we're relying on players already there to get much better which I guess is expected of a few of them.

Mourinho re Morata signing for Chelsea;

I am not interested in what Chelsea Football Club does, really, he said.

We needed a striker, yes. We needed with Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) in his best conditions, we needed one to give cover, to give options.
Him and Marcus (Rashford) was not enough and especially after Zlatan’s injury.

We got a big player - a player that I can compare with what he was a few years ago because he worked with me a few months four or five years ago.
His development was very, very good, so we think we have a player that is now a top player in Europe.

He has to prove it at the highest level, there is always that point. Now he has to do it for Manchester United, in Champions League matches but I think he has amazing qualities.

I think it was obvious Chelsea would sign a striker, especially after the situation with the manager and Diego (Costa).

It was clear that they were going to get a striker, they did it with Alvaro and Alvaro is a very good player for them

I think Perez at Madrid has made it clear there was no way United would get Morata as they were told to pay way mare than Chelsea have paid. This all comes down to the De Gea situation. If Madrid do come back for De Gea I hope we quote them 100m plus.

Mourinho;

Everybody knows because I told that I would like four players, and I’m ready to go from four to three because the market is difficult.

Some clubs think the market is different from others. We are not a club that is ready to pay what the clubs want us to pay so I’m ready to go from four to three.

The problem is we have four players (Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young), that cannot play football now. Not even training. So it looks like our group is big, but it is not and the time for their recovery is really long. Marcos no chance before December as an example, so our squad is not so big.

Lingard has been getting criticism for his social media posts. I agree, he looks and sounds like an immature kid. Anyway this is what he says;

I think people can be quick to judge. The people that know me, they know what I am like.

But obviously when it comes to training and games, that’s the professional environment.

You’ve got to do the job on the pitch. First and foremost I put in 100 per cent and I don’t think anyone can really complain after that.

I was coming down to my last year and it was good that Manchester United put that trust in me. Hopefully I can repay them now.

Kompany talks about his Belgian teammate Lukaku;

I want him to do well -- except for in a few games this season! he told ESPN. “As long as we’re ahead of them, I’m happy for him to do really well.

The one thing you get when you have Romelu is an incredible drive to improve and to score goals. It’s something really unique that I’ve been able to observe over the years because he’s been a player from Anderlecht, which is the same youth system where I come from and I’ve really followed his progress.

The key thing with him is he believes he’s the best player in the world. It doesn’t matter whether he is or he isn’t, that’s the way he approaches every single training session, that’s the way he approaches every game.

If you think you are the best you can never really be satisfied with yourself and therefore you always keep working harder and harder and that’s what he does. It’s a special player to have but there will be a lot of competition this season.

Mourinho re the derby tomorrow night;

I will try to go for 60/30 and some players can play 60 minutes against Manchester City and then they will play 30 minutes against Real Madrid and vice versa, he told MUTV.

I will try the same, I will try to give minutes to everybody because it’s an important thing.

The tactical work we do in training, behind the closed doors, then we go to the matches and of course we try to do the things we have done in training. But it’s very important for everybody to compete and we are going to try to do that.

Just finished watching the highlights of the Citeh match, some finish from Lukaku Grin

He looked good didn't he mate?

Still looks like he's carrying a bit of extra weight but he's a beast of a bloke. United could have had half a dozen last night. That shot from Rom that rattled the crossbar was some effort. Rom and Rashford looked decent together but I suppose he's going to try every permutation he can.

Only a friendly and City looked a bit rusty to be fair.

If nobody else comes in I can see our first eleven being something like this;

                De Gea

Valencia     Lindelof  Bailly         Shaw

                Herrera

Martial    Pogba       Mikhy       Rashford

                Lukaku



Can't help feeling we need another couple of top players in there

Messed up the way that formation has come out but reckon that's close to being our top eleven at the moment

Pete gotta say I am cautiously optimistic re: Lukaku, our failure last season to get goals against the lesser sides killed us and he can rectify this issue imo. It certainly will be interesting to see how Morata and Lukaku's respective seasons pan out, for me I'm happy with our purchase as he's proved he can do it in the Premier league. Struggling with this seemingly obsession with Perisic and would be gutted if Martial was a makeshift in any possible deal. Any truth in the Barkley rumours mate, can't see it meself, have you heard anything else? I know Dessie doesn't like all the speculation/gossip but conversely I love it. Like the line-up but too attacking for Mourinho's liking in my view.

I agree re Lukaku and said he would score goals galore as soon as we signed him. I can't understand all the pessimism when a club signs a player. Surely the manager knows better than anybody else what he needs?

I don't know anything about this Perisic but a couple of lads on here don't seem to rate him. The efforts Mourinho and Ed are going to make it clear they see him as being important so lets wait and see.

The Barkley rumours are because of the stalemate with Matic. Chelsea want to sell him but would rather he went To Juventus. They can't afford or won't pay 40m and Matic wants to come here. I think Everton might want more than that for Barkley anyway. He is an option if Matic falls through but that would mean Chelsea having to sell him for less money to Juventus than they could get from United (much the same as Madrid did with Morata)

To complicate matters United are still interested in Dier. He has made it clear he is "desperate to sign for United" but Spurs insist he will not be sold and I see that he has travelled over to the States on their pre season tour.

United still looking for another full back but again have struggled with the money being asked for the likes of Fabinho and Aurier.

I reckon the next United signing will be one of Matic, Perisic or Dier. Would be nice to get 2 out of the 3.

Mourinho publicly saying he's desperate for at least one more signing so he must be trying to crank up the pressure on Ed.

Come on Mourinho give Ed a break, he's doing what he can;

I'm glad you got your season tickets Jim, you just have to keep going because once you've packed it in it's difficult to get back to it. Will give you some man time away from your good lady Grin
