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

Pandy

I'm away from home for another week or so but my bets on the TDF are as follows;

TDF Overall winner- I've lumped on Quintana at 3.7, was really impressed with him last year and also since then. His price might get better after a few stages but if he's still within striking distance in another half dozen stages I will lump on again

Tejay Van Garderen is the outsider for the main race that my pin has dropped on. Taken price of 80 on him just in case the big guns crash out

Stage 2- Honestly can't see past Cavendish and I think 2.36 ish is actually good value so have backed him for today's stage

hey peter what about wimbledon is it the usual suspects now, or could an outsider still win,wawrinka?
Report peter the butcher July 5, 2015 11:12 AM BST
Wawrinka could win but he's not as good on grass. Its all set up for Djok and Murray final isn't it?

Murray will avoid Tsonga and Nadal who are both out unbelievably so he only has to contend with Fed unless Karlovic gets 50 aces against him.

Djok has a great draw. Could be a hell of a final.

I thought the ladies might spring a surprise with Venus having a bit of a resurgance and most results still possible with the remaining players but a bit late odds wise and Serena looks like she's trying this year

Madison Keys is decent bet at 22. She could easily make the final. Has to beat Govortsova, Radwanska and Bacsinsky. More than possible. As it goes you could make a case for each player left in as Serena Williams looks vulnerable. Laugh

Annabel Croft said she was "tight" on the forehand versus Watson. She must be nervous about having a great chance to win the calendar grand slam and tie/pass Steffi Graf's record of 22 slam wins. No way should she nearly have gone out to Watson if she was near form.

Yep would agree with both of you.

The ladies tourny is the one that could get a decent priced winner if Serena fakes another injury when all isn't going well.

Fed is definitely the best grass court player but big ask to beat both Murray and Djok whereas Djok should have an easier run to the final.

Fed could beat Murray but even when he was at his best he always seemed to struggle against Murray. I think the all time score between the two is 16-15 or something like that

Not had a bet on the overall yet. I'm waiting until they've got past the cobbles safely. If it happens to rain that day its potential carnage. I backed Tejay a couple of years ago at around 80s but he didn't make a showing then. The best of the outsiders though, I think, so good luck.
