    Chevrolet are said to be reviewing their sponsorship deal with a certain club in freefall as they're questioning its value for money.

    Oops.

    GM are totally fucked anyway, they'd probably be looking for a way out regardless of how well United are doing.

    Are Chevrolet the Vauxhall cars of America? They paid silly money at time for the contract. United are still a big brand, I can see them signing a similar deal with another company

    And yet, somehow, those fuckers are still linked with this nonsense:

    Yeah just read that. If they do get a new deal of that magnitude, Woodward will be employed for life. So almost hope they do.

    Yep. Whilst it means Utd will almost certainly never get to the lows we got to after 90 when we stopped winning trophies every year, the fact that they're making money is actually preventing them fixing their problems.

    Quite simply, they have owners who are perfectly happy with the team not winning shit provided they're making money for them. They'll even throw a couple hundred million at players every year to keep the fans filling their coffers, they just won't give Woodward the boot cos he can run the business side well.

    That sounds just like media spin to me-- Unite expect this, expect that with enough statistics to make the point (1.1 billion fans worldwide?)

    By the way, the GM executive who signed that deal was immediately sacked. It was bad value for money from the get go whether Man U had been winning titles during that time.

    The guy who signed the deal for GM was sacked the day after after they realised they were paying more than double AON were.
