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

Looking for a Southampton away ticket if you hear of one going spare patrick.

Chubbed again. Its beyond a f ucking joke now.

They can stick their season ticket for next season. What's the point of having them if they don't ever give me a domestic away ticket, not one ticket this season out of the ballot?? Been to all but a couple and had to rely on lads at the ground or touts.

I can get home tickets easily without giving them Glazer's the chance to force me to go to Cup games. We would go anyway but resent being forced to go.

Let me know if you hear of one, can pick up here or outside the ground on match day if needs be.

Listening to Klopp talking you get the feeling it would be worth approaching him.

I get the feeling he wants reassurance from his club that they are all with him.

We could test that with a big compensation package and know they aren't against taking the right sort of money

Their fans are already unhappy at losing Lew and Gotze (among others) and would rip the place apart if he left too and maybe took Reus and Hummels with him.
Report peter the butcher April 24, 2014 11:39 PM BST
Maybe ours4keeps but he seemed genuine enough.

He was just saying how embarrassing it was to say he would reject United when an offer hadn't even been made. He said that as long as every person at Dortmund wanted him to stay that was better than any contract and that he had a thousand reasons to stay.

Still think it would be worth a shot but Ed seems to have made his mind up about Van Gaal.

Maybe the Glazer's will have something to say tomorrow when they arrive.

Thought I'd let the dust settle for a couple of days, as the news brought Ozy back to the thread, and my previous posts have been the equivalent of a red rag to a bull for him...!
There are strong murmurings here that Roy the Boy is chuffed that his name has been mentioned regarding the possibility of a role in the new regime and is confident that his contract with the FAI would not cause any problems.
Personally think it would be a huge mistake to involve him, we shall have to wait and see if he gets the call or not.
