Man Utd praised for charitable work as they give points away to the needy


Manchester United have truly embraced the spirit of giving this festive season.

 

The club’s charitable nature was clear for all to see on Sunday night (SGT), as they freely gave cellar-dwellers Watford - who have won just once in 17 games this season - a whole three points to keep them warm this Christmas.

 

I mean, how else can you explain the Red Devils’ meek performance in their 0-2 defeat to Watford?

 

Man Utd were so giving, they handed the Hornets not one, but TWO gift-wrapped goals, with David De Gea and Aaron Wan-Bissaka named the two biggest donors on the night. To put this charitable act in context, Watford had only managed to score just nine times - at a goalscoring rate of 0.52 per game - prior to Sunday.

They might not quite be Santa Claus just yet (or maybe Satan Claus, given their association with the Devil?), but this act of charity - one of many this season - is definitely grounds for changing the club’s nickname to something more suitable.

 

They do say the devil comes in many forms...

 

If you’ve been inspired by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his men, and want to give something to your Man Utd supporting friends this Christmas, might we suggest this?

 

Who needs top-four anyway, when you’ve got good karma on your side?

 

In all seriousness, though, kudos to Man Utd and their players for giving back to the community and the less fortunate during the festive season. The world is that much better now, thanks to your kindness and generosity.
