Following on from a comment Mike made on an unrelated thread Man Utd players who don't drive a Chevrolet are probably witches and need to be burned.

The last list of cars driven by some Utd players can be found here
Which Manchester United star drives the most expensive car? | Football | Sport | Express.co.uk

However not to be outdone the Noisy Neighbours appear to be upping the vehicle stakes by them driving these vehicles
https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/footb...heem-sterling/

Is Sterling even tall enough to see over the steering wheel?

What do we do with more witches? Burn them.

Are you watching Leicester with misty eyes now, thinking “if we’d kept big Claude we could also be drawing away at Stoke, instead of losing at home to Burnley?”.

It’s similar to how we felt about Moyes and LVG. But different.

No, I'm genuinely thinking that the pitch and team is controlled by the club and whilst we probably pick a manager to fit the club's 'ethos' and all that guff, we also pick someone we can make a yes-man out of.
No manager is bigger than the club and all that bollocks but you have to let them manage. Redmond was signed when we didn't have a manager for example, who the **** decided on that?

All very odd.

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
No, I mean why would Chevy spend the money. If it was Ford I would think nothing of it, because Ford branded cars have been dominant in Britain for eons.

Utd has a following of 659 million around the World (plus 3 or 4 in Manchester) including 71 million in the Americas.

you were very good first 45 but didn't do much in 2nd half, Chelski proably deserved the win on balance of play

If only we had a winger capable of winning penalties without being touched

you sold him - mr CR7

your issue isn't lacking a winger with dodgy balance in the penalty area but more about this methinks:

Romelu Lukaku, who has been gorging himself on goals for club and country this season with the right supply but he only had one shot in the entire game against Chelsea and, tellingly, did not have one touch in the opposition box. He only made 16 passes in the entire game.

You need Pogba back and maybe Ibra too and that'll turn things around for you methinks.

Miki was abysmal and Fellani apart from his one moment of skill was a liability who should have been sent off for his favourite trick of elbowing someone in the face in the first 3 secs after coming on. your manager sensibly took the Jones donkey off as he was going to get sent off and had been all over the place positionally.

Cainess summed up the difference at the moment between your lot and mine:

Utd made 2 subs Lingard and Filthlani so did City Jesus and Bernardo!!!!

I hate to say this but I think you're all being harsh on Fellaini. He's a plan B player, if all else fails lob the ball in to the box and he always has a chance to score. It's not pretty but he can win points, he's not claiming to be Messi, he's just doing the job he's told to do.

Yes but he was only up in the box doing plan B once - the rest of the time he was making assists for Morata at the other end and was fortunate the Chelski man kept falling over rather than piling on the agony. He also elbowed someone in the face.......

Your hatred of big Marouane is bordering on the lunatic now. The more you hate him, the more I grow to love the big galoot. For all his failings, at least he doesn’t dive - and isn’t ginger.
