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

Jose started that sh!t with the "Best team lost" when Real Madrid beat UTD I think the UTD job is the only one Jose wants in England Plain

Yes mate 100% I laid him not to come back to the bridge. I have always thought he wanted either Manchester job, City because he could with their resources give them a history and UTD to keep them at the top. Out of the two he'd take UTD !

When Fergie left I never thought about Mourinho as a possibility at all. When you put it like that, it all makes sense; especially the Real Madrid comment.
Report PBK January 25, 2015 9:27 PM GMT
I think that he comes in does his thing (Win) then goes two or three seasons later didn't suit the grey suits at UTD however if he had of got the job he would of stayed many years as he loves England and as I've said many times you are the biggest club in the land.

Jose cried when he heard Moyes got the United job. He had to go back to Chelsea for sloppy seconds. They deserve each other.

Who can blame United for rejecting him as a candidate when you look at the weekly shiitstorm he created in La Liga. The whole of Spain, including the majority of Real fans, we glad to see him leave. Jose is a vile person and would sully United's good name with his antics.

"Sloppy second?" Don't make me laugh. Chelsea are going to win the Premiership and United have no hope. What's all this about United's "good name" anyway. Is this the same Manchester United who nurtured scumbags like Cantona, Ince and Buchan? I see even Ronaldo is getting in on the act now, with his handbag! Laugh
Report olddesperado January 26, 2015 10:56 AM GMT
morning all,

What a strange weekend.

I was very disappointed with the performance friday night but subsequent events have turned it into a decent result at least.

Van gaals tag of being a lucky manager continues as we would now be co favs for the cup especially as the other two are still in europe at one level or another.

This is as poor a premier league as there has been imo and perhaps the emphesis on strenght, athletism  and height is making it easier for the lower level teams as that would be their traditional stock.

Skillful players are being phased out to perhaps one per team in favour of the water carriers as someone once called them.
