December has been a month to forget for United fans.
After two hugely disappointing defeats in as many weeks, against supposed small-time minnows, the red half of Manchester's season looks not only disjointed but potentially derailed.
With the club's group stage crash out from the Champions League and an early exit in the League Cup ringing in their ears, doubts have been cast over United's title aspirations and quality; their early season hype and pomp all but deflated and soured.
'Tis soon the season to be jolly however, and Manchester United fans have plenty of cause for optimism this Christmas. From holding firm in second place at the approach to the Premier League's summit to a squad bursting with exciting youthful potential and energy, now is not the time to mope and surrender.
Grab a mug of double strength mulled wine, chuck another log on the fire, and enjoy these 7 wants for every United fan's wish-list this Christmas and hope that you've been a good boy or girl this year. Ho ho ho!
