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.

This season has been a bit of a non event on the punting front so far for me. 2moro i'm hoping i've found a short but value one at Stoke.  Had a few quid on BTTS @21/20 with Chandler, similar on the exchange at the mo.

All but one of Chelseas 8 away games have seen both keepers beaten.  Stoke haven't kept a clean sheet in 10 & their last 4 home games btts has copped. Stoke always seem to be up for
the big clubs and have turned over citeh & arsenal whilst almost grabbing a draw at our gaff. I hardly ever play this market but evens or above looks decent on the stats Confused

p.s I'm hoping one of my all too many recent 2nds on the nags can do me favour in the 5.10. Some of you lot may be tempted just by it's name..Reality Show @11/2.

Brendan Rodgers is fast becoming my favourite non United manager to listen to in interviews.

The bloke has no shame in self promotion and is possibly the most deluded man I know. So much so its must watch tv. I reckon we should have an official Brendan day on here when people can post quotes, pics, stories etc about the "great" (in his mind) man.

This was one of his offerings last week;

Beating Bournemouth 3-1 in Capital Cup  “I know how it goes,” he said. “Six or seven months ago I was the manager of the year and I was going to be this and that, tactically this and tactically that, and now, because we have lost two world-class players, I am useless. Absolutely useless.

I must have just dreamt that about Liverpool playing 3-4-3 in the last game [the Capital One Cup victory at Bournemouth]. What do people think that was, a bit of luck? A British coach playing 3-4-3? A foreign coach doing that would be a tactical genius. I imagine people think I fell into that system through a stroke of luck or something. Not that I might have been awake into the early hours of the morning thinking of a solution to our problem"

Nothing wrong with arrogance if you can back it up.

The thing about managing a club as big as Manchester United, or Barca or Real Madrid is you have to be the dominant figure at the club. The manager has to keep the players who are on mega bucks and have massive egos in check. Moyes couldn't drop Falcao or RvP without the player getting stroppy. Fergie & LvG can.

Onepercenter,

Yep that's the point, not only was Moysie struggling to take control of the players but he was sending out mixed messages by backing down when he did try to clamp down and they were taking the mickey out of him. In his interviews he was as opposite to arrogant as you could get. The whole situation was just too big for the poor bloke.

Catholics, Hindus, Buddhists and the traditional jam sponge C of E brigade - makes no difference. As soon as you tell a child that it's OK to believe in something for which there's no evidence, then you have no control over where that child takes the notion. It might be to become a happy clappy sort on the local precinct or it might be to strap Semtex to his/her chest and blow themself up in a Skegness bus shelter. There is no way of knowing.
