Why does Man Utd have Chevy on their jerseys?
 
Chevrolet doesn't sell in the UK or even much of Western Europe. It's really only a major brand name in North America. The regions where Man Utd is popular isn't Chevy territory.

Chevrolet is used as a nameplate badge for Daewoos sold in the UK and Europe. Manchester United is popular worldwide.

Chevrolet vehicles are sold in the Middle East, where soccer is also popular.

Errr because the stupid bastards offered them 53 million pounds a year or the official version
Uniform deals jumped to the forefront in 2014 when Manchester United signed its seven-year, $559 million contract with Chevrolet .

So you had to settle for Virgin Media then. From the Saints Partner webpage
“Virgin and the Saints both like to do things a little bit differently.
Yup Southampton has no virgins and Virgin Media like to **** you over :lol:

Refuting any point you ever make is biting? Taking the piss is biting? Responding to your ongoing boring diatribe which is just a rabid rant at the moon is biting?

You’re a grown man. For ****s sake, grow up.

Because they are first and foremost a big business registered in a tax haven and will sell anything to the highest bidder.

In their defence they have to sell everything as they have the highest wage bill in the EPL and spend 232 million in wages each year..... Only Chelsea (224 mil) and Liverpool (208 mil) also break the 200m mil barrier - buying success is expensive ;) or in Liverpool's case not buying success :scarper:

Stop. My sides are hurting from laughing. You’re a one-trick pony, and that trick stopped being even interesting about a year ago. Give it a rest.
