Mercedes could be a strong shout. The way Toto Wolff spoke about it, just gave me hope. Having the ability to share how they (F1 AMG/Toto) do things would be a great asset at United.

"team viewer gets used by scammers"

So does Windows, would you have turned that down too?

Chevy's have probably been used by drunk drivers. Vodafone is used by all sorts of unsavoury people. Adidas probably have sweatshops.
Did anyone actually seriously raised this concern? :lol:

Holy feck , snowflakes man... Jeez.

Toto recently talked about their teams new sponsorship with Team Viewer and how Mercedes and Manchester United could potentially cross platforms and help each other.

Here's the interview...https://www.gpfans.com/en/articles/63277/mercedes-follow-manchester-united-with-no-brainer-new-sponsorship-deal/

If Manchester United can learn anything from Toto and the Mercedes F1 team we should be all for it. Maybe they can teach our amateurs a thing or two about managing a sports empire.

Haha, that would be good.

I do believe we have the right people in the wrong positions unfortunately. However, let's see what the "new" football structure brings.

They announced a deal with Mercedes and the logo is white against the black background.

Having a partnership with Mercedes would be great if we took on some of their practices.

My biggest question is - why the hell does Teamviewer want to be on Man United shirts? It is not a consumer brand, it's sold to clueless enterprise executives. And those would buy TeamViewer anyway, at least seeing it on a football team's shirts does nothing there. And yet TV is paying shitton of money to be on the shirt.

So weird. Is Woodward getting into money laundering or some shit?

Brand awareness? Same reason they have partnered with Mercedes F1 team

the company will be put on the shortlist of lots of procurement tenders as a result.

I thought the same about Aon. I think it was a vanity thing for them. I never needed luxury yaght insurance, and I'd imagine most other football fans were in the same boat, so it can't have made them much more money, if it even covered the cost of sponsoring us.

You see what I did there?

We are talking about TeamViewer now, aren't we?

I am sure there is some strategic reason behind it. They may be about to go on an acquisition binge or expanding their product lines?

the only reason I’ve heard of them is because they are the software used by Indian scammers to trick old people into stealing their money.

I guess it’s not their fault, but man, what a shit thing to be known for.

If I was Indian I’d be fuming at how much these scammers have damaged their reputation. Honestly I put the phone down whenever I hear an Indian accent at this point because I just assume it’s gonna be “Steve” from “London”

Why would Teamviewer need additional exposure on United shirt? They are already the dominant remote computer management solution. Mostily available for personal use for free. And companies that need them would buy the license regardless of being associated with United or not. I don't see where they will have any financial gain from this? Money laundering?

Yeah, it can be used by scammers, but I've used it dozens of times legitimately because of my work using an external IT company. So it's not like it's excluseively used by criminals.

Just because they’ve the dominant force doesn’t mean they still don’t want to grab attention. There will be tonnes of self employed people or SMEs that don’t use them (or any computer management system in some cases) that may be subliminally swayed by sponsorship. That’s how it works.

Any money transfer service can also be used by scammers. Teamviewer has also tried to combat scammers too.

Teamviewr’s business model largely revolves around people being honest enough to actually pay for to use it. I reckon we should just pocket the money from them and sell the rights to someone else. They’re used to it.

How funny would it be if we didn't actually sign a deal with TeamViewer but it was Ed Woodward that got scammed by an Indian scammer who had him download and install TeamViewer on his iPad and then told him he was signing a lucrative deal with TeamViewer. I reckon old melon head is dumb enough.
I can imagine Woody getting scammed. He gets a random call one day "hello, this is Dave from Chelsea, we'd like to pay £40m for Phil Jones" a man with a heavy Indian accent says.

The man on the phone says he needs to connect to Ed's computer and brings up the bank transfer page where it seems as though Ed has been transfered £400m. The man on the phone deigns shock and Ed agrees to send back £360m in PlayStore cards.
