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

I'll have to concede Jim - "like a flan in a cupboard" comes from an Eddie Izzard stand-up routine.

If you want someone to knock the ball forward 4 yards, run after it and then whack it crossfield as hard as he can, smacking the first defender on the shin and getting a corner, then Valencia is your man.

Derby day police on alert as United hooligans' football banning orders expire

It's understood that around half-a-dozen hardcore Reds, who have now completed football banning orders, are free to attend Sunday's match at the Etihad Stadium   

A huge police operation is gearing up for Sunday’s Manchester derby - with a handful of United hooligans set to come off football banning orders.

It is understood police are on alert for around half-a-dozen hardcore Reds who have now completed football banning orders, which prevented them attending any matches until now.

These fans will now be free to attend the game, which kicks off at 1.30pm, with around 2,400 United fans who have tickets for the match at City’s 47,000-capacity Etihad stadium.

Up to 400 police officers, including crack Tactical Aid Unit riot police, dog-handlers and mounted officers will be on hand during a huge security operation which begins on Sunday morning and continues until late into the night.

Officers will be on hand both in the city centre, around the ground and on Metrolink.

They will also be on the look-out for anyone who tries to launch a drone. A man was arrested after flying a remote-controlled aircraft over the East Stand during the game against Tottenham earlier this month.

An alcohol ban has been imposed around the ground for the game although officers have visited licensed premises, urging landlords to use plastic glasses and to beef up security for the game.

The police helicopter, India 99, will help with the policing operation along with traffic officers armed with ANPR cameras, which scan number plates to find rogue motorists or cars linked to crime.

Although police will be on the look-out for the United fans who have come off banning orders, it is understood officers have no intelligence that they or anyone else is intent on causing trouble at the game.

Superintendent Craig Thompson, who is in charge of policing on the day of the game, told the MEN: “We are well used to policing high-profile fixtures like this. I would urge fans to come to the game, enjoy the day and arrive well in time for the kick-off because of the building work going on around the ground.

“They will see plenty of police officers on the ground who are there to ensure their safety. If there is any trouble or disorder, we will deal with it robustly.”



Personally will be having a quiet drink at Mary's..
