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.

Depay is definitely one to keep as he's still young and in his first season both in the Premier League and with such a big club.

Have heard that his attitude off the pitch hasn't been great for a while - if so he needs to get his head down and the rest will take care of itself as he does have the talent.

cant agree you defend from the front. Depay is young and if he was just having a poor time i wouldn't dig him out its just his non effort and the non tracking back. Unacceptable. Blaming schnerdelin is just making me think your depays friend or something, by playing attacking football players get involved in moves and you trust your team mates to not kill you and leave you out of position with a **** pass, at least MS tried to get back in unlike depay. I agree we did drop too deep when we could of really finished them off. Lets just be happy with the improvement made and hope it continues as enjoyed watching some of our football.

Very good performance for 70-75 mins today, but we got careless and timid towards the end. This was one time we really should have been trying to do no more than simply keeping the ball. Instead we kept either giving it away or going for Hollywood finishes. (Jesse, for all of his brilliance for the goal, was perhaps most culpable there.)

Overall, though, a very pleasing performance. It's so great to see what this team is capable of now that they've got the mindset of attacking rather than playing safety-first possession football. You can see they're now always looking to get forwards. Somebody gets on the ball, and he's immediately surrounded by other red shirts rushing to take up positions ahead of him. It's simply a total change in philosophy, and exactly the thing several of us here have been crying out for for a couple of months now.

Great performance for 70 mins but total fcuk up after that.

If your going to sit back on the 18 yard line to defend a one goal lead at least give yourself an out,

To not have at least one player left up was stupid as the ball was only ever going to come back in.

Rooney did stay up after a while but really its someone that can control the ball or has pace you need.

Depay has had many bad games for us and is probably too non plussed about this as he feels his talent will win through.

That mistake and the conseqences and hopefully home truths in the dressing room will hopefully make the penny finally drop,

Smalling came back from his "moment " last year and matured into one of our best current players.

The team got jittery and careless in the last 20 mins. There was no need to go out and fight for a second, but we did need to take the sting out of the game. Just play the ball around and effectively say to the Chelsea players 'We've got the lead and the ball. We don't need to do anything now, so we're going to keep it tight and not concede silly free-kicks or give you easy chances. If you want to win this match, you've got to do something brilliant - or be very lucky.'

Shut down the match. That's all we needed to do.  It's not about playing deep or parking the bus. It's about keeping the ball and preventing them from building up a head of steam.

Report Cooee February 8, 2016 11:22 AM GMT
Chelsea turned it on to a certain extent, but they weren't that fantastic. They were helped considerably by the fact that we kept giving them the ball again and again. There was no purpose to our play at all. We were simply trying half-shots and half-passes in the hope of keeping the ball away from them, rather than deciding either to attack, or to keep ball.

And certainly in the mid 2000s, Fergie United were very good at getting the lead against Arsenal, Liverpool etc. and then just taking the sting out of the game and frustrating them. Fergie sides weren't all just about attack attack attack. There's been plenty of steel in many of his teams as well. (That's what Arsene has never understood.)
Report Cooee February 8, 2016 11:33 AM GMT
I also don't get this point that people often make about 'if it wasn't for De Gea...'

Football sides have a goalkeeper. It's his job to stop goals from going in wherever possible. It so happens that United have bought very well in that department, and have one of the best keepers in the world. And yet we often hear this mealy-mouthed 'you would have lost by X if it wasn't for De Gea'. 

Nobody extracts Aguero from City and then says 'if it wasn't for his scoring, they would have lost that match by X'.  So why is our goalkeeper making saves picked out so much?

Plus, there were actually two very good goalkeepers out there yesterday, and whereas De Gea was only called into action late on, Courtois made a fantastic save from us in the first half. We could have been 2-0 up going into the last 25 mins rather than 1-0.  Goalkeepers eh?

The point my self and others make is not that he saves attempts its

A good honest keeper might have saved one or two of those shots yesterday but not all.

De gea saves shots he has no right to game after game and for me we would be mid table without him.

Well I've been slagging him off almost non-stop since the Watford match late last year, so I can't be *that* much like LVG...

And I do fully appreciate De Gea. It just annoys me that if a team has a really prolific striker, or a winger that runs rings around the opposition, that's considered to be fair enough.  But because we happen to have a truly outstanding goalkeeper, his success is regularly used as a stick with which to beat up the rest of the team.

If you have one of the best in the world in a key position, of course their presence will be worth a heap of points. Trying to land those top players is what it's about for the scouts. And one of those players doing their job in spectacular style shouldn't be constantly held up as a negative for the rest of the team.

LVG  is adamant that he hasn't changed the way we are playing but he's bound to say that.

Personally I think it's a bit of him changing and the younger players not understanding the fear factor and just playing by instinct. Lingard has been playing attacking stuff ever since he came into the team and CBJ the same in terms of supporting runs and providing crosses.

He's a superb crosser of the ball

I have said that for years on here 1%.

They hate the old skool fans who have stood by them for forty plus years. We don't spend any money at United other than our season tickets. Not even a programme or a pie. We refuse to boost the owners pockets. They  know tourists, day trippers and corporates will spend a fortune in the club shop, bar, food, tour etc etc

We spend a lot of money on our away trips and happily spend money inside the away grounds. Even the ticket money for away matches doesn't go to the Glazer's in fact they subsidise the ticket to the tune of £4 which is money they get from the league.

In many cases they treat us like non desirables and would happily wish is away but when it all goes tits up they know the tourists and the glory fans will be running off in the opposite direction. We could take our bat home and leave them to it, but why should we? It's our club and will be when we eventually get rid of the owners.

They might not like us but they will find they need us when things are not rosy.

How many of the tourists go to the likes of Derby, Stoke, Sunderland etc on a wet windy cold night?

This season I've been to Belgium, Holland , Russia, Germany and Denmark next week. Yet they tell me I've been unsuccessful for a ticket to the likes of Everton, thirty miles up the road.

Approx 45 min walk to the ground. Watch match,either walk back to train station or get one of two busses United have put on but its tight so will walk in case bus fills up. Train leaves 10pm so will get back to Copenhagen at approx 3am

Saturday- leave Copenhagen for Manchester

They already have a scheme in place where clubs are supposed to give each other 3000 tickets or a certain percentage. For cup games its more.

We keep getting penalised by other clubs for so called misdemeanours. There is only Chelsea who regularly give us our 3000 tickets although they didn't on Sunday because they said something about taking out a few rows for disabled access.

Clubs like City, Liverpool, Spurs, Stoke, Everton and a good few others regularly give us a reduced allocation.

Blackburn and Wigan sometimes gave us 6000 to 8000 tickets for matches to fill the stadium. Fantastic atmosphere for both sets of fans

Over 5500 at the Under 21's derby tonight. United beat City 1-0 and have now gone top of the table and we are 10 points ahead of City. Their academy might have more money and a better set up but it still has to produce the goods.

Its the younger teams where we are really struggling.

On the subject of the Academy we should find out by next week who Brian Mcclair's replacement is. Its taken forever to sort out and there is no excuse for it but Ed reckons the club have been restructuring the whole Academy set up so watch this space.

If we can get anywhere near the Chelsea Academy set up we will do well imo
