On the "warm down", yes, Neville and Scholes had taken no part in the match beyond wandering about the pitch in business suits for twenty minutes an hour before it started. Somewhere I read it was less a "warm-down" for the subs and more a "full-blown training session". Can't imagine why.
I don't know what happened but it seems terribly childish, probably from all concerned. You'd think that if Man U wanted to use a part of the pitch for a while they'd ask. If the answer is yes, the Chelsea staff have no business interrupting them. But if they hadn't got permission and Chelsea ground-staff ask them to move on or over then they should.
Given it happened away from public view you'd think the FA need take no action unless one club made a complaint.
It's all just handbags, isn't it?

Blimey. U only lost a game of football and all hell breaks loose.
No doubt the groundsman shouldn't have got shirty but i bet it was the arrogance of highly paid footballers not wanting to be told what to do by a lowley groundsman that set it all of.
There all bloody like it these days....."You can't do that to me, don't you know i'm Ashley Cole" (or any other top player!!!!
The Chav groundstaff were protecting/preparing the pitch for use on Wednesday for the CL game.
Training sessions cause more damage to the turf than a match.
I can see why the Chav gardener took exception when Evra started his Maori war dance. (Well I assume that's the reason for the tongue business, either that or he was really concentrating on not getting spanked)
