FARRRRRR OUT, MAN:

SPOTTED: A bottle of wine on Van Gaal's notes could be the reason for United's pitch slips... #CRYMUN pic.twitter.com/8mgtL9TDRW— Ladbrokes (@Ladbrokes) May 9, 2015
Sadly, it seems that LVG wasn't already picking out a good deal on his post-match wine (with which he will enjoy tonight's Chelsea-Liverpool contest). Crystal Palace's team sheet is apparently sponsored by Farr Vintners.
Re. that piece of paper with a bottle of wine on it Van Gaal had, it is an advert featured on the teamsheet at Palace. #mufc— Samuel Luckhurst (@samuelluckhurst) May 9, 2015
Just another example of why you should never trust still images of bench shots, reaction shots, and the like.
According to reddit, this is from the German 4th division.
