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 think Mourinho is going to settle on 3 at the back eventually and he wants good fast wing backs who are equally as good going forward as they are defending.

Flanagan is the lad you're thinking of Pete, things haven't worked out too well for him.

Alderweireld would be a good buy, Premier league proven and also excellent on the ball (the main reason Smalling isn't going to the World cup). But there will be plenty after him.
Report REDUNDANT PUNTER May 18, 2018 7:22 AM BST
Flanagan has suffered a lot of injuries and whilst he was a no nonsense type of throwback footballer hard tackling more defensive minded he wasnt anywhere near the raw ability of the two we have now

Robertson is a full international and Arnold is about to become one

I know you probably won't agree but klopp has handled him well
Didn't throw him straight in gave him time to settle and then when given his chance has took it with both hands

Got his chance somewhat fortunately due to injury of he can stay injury free will be the best left back in the league next season imo

Arnold still has a lot to learn positionally and mentally concentration and awareness but he's young and has a lot of potential

Out of retirement with a few Cup Final punts.......

Pen Awarded  22/5 Marathon..7/2 in places


Under no circumstances should any Association Fitba match refereed by Michael Oliver have a pen priced at just under 9/2. In the last 2 seasons he's awarded 33 from his 85 games. If the emergency exits of the respective buses can be prized open.. wor Michael is deffo the man to bring the odds home.

Ander Herrera to be shown a card 3/1 unibet

If selected this screams value to me. In 7 starts versus Chelsea he's picked up 5 yellows & 1 red. Man marking Hazard would be a bonus. He's as low as Evens & generally a 6/4 poke.

Combined 1st & 2nd half stoppage time 8+mins 6/1 slybet


Without wishing serious injury on anyone this could still be a runner due VAR rearing it's ugly head for the first time in the Cup Final. You'd imagine it's gonna be needed to land the odds but Chelsea & United are both capable of the necessary sh1thousery required to add a few mins to the clock. A small play for the lolz.
