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.

I have no problem with you saying Spurs better than Liverpool,maybe others think the same.I do think they have been more solid than us,but purely for the football played,not so sure there.
If i am right though,and our letting in of stupid goals is not going to let us down rest of season,then i am confident we will finish above them.
I aint saying we will win the league,but i do think we will put up a proper challenge next season.
As for improvement i agree that Utd will,probably all the top 6 will.......although i really hope City Dont!!

Interesting point you make re Mourinho........seems from the outside that the fans are split on him somewhat?

degsy... there are millions of people around the world who apparently watch football for 'entertainment' purposes. I'm fortunate not to suffer from such a limiting mental affliction. The Moyes/LVG/Jose years have been a walk in the fkin park. However Utd lose they'll always be a 'meltdown', especially on ere it seems.

This could be the weekend when Liverpool overtake Utd in the league.A win against West Ham and a Utd draw against Chelsea will do it.As we move towards the business end of the season a couple of thoughts on Utd In a sentence they are boring but very difficult to beat.They definitely need a playmaker for next season but these are very difficult to find.It should be Mo's Number 1 objective for next season.Obviously Utd could stagger on with Mata but he is past his sell by date.As for Pogba and Lukaku they will usually  perform well against the journeymen teams but doubtful whether they can perform well against the other top 6 teams teams or in the Champions league Offload both if they can be sold for £50m+
I expect Sundays result to be yet another 0-0 zzzzzzdraw.you can get 9.5/1 on betfair with 1-0 or 0-1 as savers  Thats it for now.

It can't be denied, Liverpool will only lose the six pointer at MUFC then win all the rest. its the best run in by far. If we win the FA Cup or CL I doubt many of us will lose any sleep about Liverpool in 2nd just above us......

All the tactical geniuses on here posting how United are going wrong. This is Mourinho’ s take on it:

“You ask me is it a good result, I say is not good, is not bad, we had two legs to play and now we have one match to decide everything at Old Trafford. And, for sure, Old Trafford has missed knockout Champions League and I think Old Trafford needs a big Champions League night and they are going to get it.

"Now it looks like all the good players have to play free and when the team has the ball, which is such a stupid thing to say. When the team has the ball you attack, when the team doesn't have the ball, you defend.

"But it doesn't look like that now, some guys now are creating a new sport but I don't see it. The winning teams, the top teams in the world now, not 20 or 30 years ago, everybody works and everybody has tactical discipline."
