Rashford
 

dom9 29-10-20 02:40 AM

Doesn't really matter who he plays for (or perhaps it does) and it doesn't really matter if he's any good at football (or perhaps it does).

Actually it doesn't.

The guy has somehow single handedly / single mindedly changed the news narrative in the UK.

Is there anyone who honestly disagrees with what he's standing up for?

Not me.

His petition has over 1m signatures now.

Should get a standing ovation at all grounds he plays at when fans are back.

Don't think he'll be nominated cos it's about on-field / sporting achievement.

Seems mad really when it is 'personality'.

I'd imagine the government will be wanting to kaibosh him also as imagine the platform that would give him prime time BBC everyone watching it because there is nothing else to do.

The 'personality' thing is a bit of a misnomer - it was from the 50s when personality meant celebrity or famous person. Nothing to do with their personalities. :D

Yeah, fair point :handshake:

He will surely get some acknowledgement.

I think it is amazing that he is so socially conscious (as are a lot of our lot) at such a young age and with such wealth.

Shaggy 29-10-20 11:27 AM

I hope they bend the rules for him tbh - the sporting calendar has been decimated this year (no Olympics, no Euros etc) so they should make an exception for him. He's doing and has inspired incredible things.

Roboklopp 29-10-20 12:49 PM

But itís virtue signalling if they do Shaggy. :rash:

Rigadon 29-10-20 12:59 PM

We live in a strange world. If a politician (thinking Corbyn) had expressed similar concerns to Rashford (come to think of it, Corbyn probably spent a lot of time expressing concerns about child poverty), they would have been mocked (thinking right wing press and current Tory front bench).

Good on Rashford. He's shown compassion, understanding, maturity and bravery.

Roboklopp 29-10-20 01:03 PM

Aye, it’s politicising it if a politician makes such a point apparently.

gratziani 30-10-20 11:06 AM

have to agree with all about Rashford.

Could of just concentrated on his football and earned his millions but made a massive difference in a shit of a year for the country,

Admiration of the charts for the lad

Slinky Skills 08-11-20 09:35 AM

He's done brilliant this lad! :respect::rock:

Dick move by the Mail.


fidget 15-11-20 02:18 PM

Expect nothing else from them - they'll probably be rehashing Lewis Hamilton is a hypocrite for taking private jets stories as we speak.
Clickbait for bigots.

Exiled_red 15-11-20 02:40 PM

:handshake: The mail is a scummy rag, don't expect anything else from them

Tribute 16-11-20 02:22 PM

Daily Mail is a Tory rag and wouldn't know integrity unless it came in a manilla envelope stuffed full of non-competitive, multi-billion pound PPE contracts. Arseholes.

fidget 16-11-20 05:35 PM

Maybe they could compare and contrast Rashford and Rothermere's tax returns on page 1

Buzzo 17-11-20 11:17 AM

Rashford again. :respect:

I can’t get over how switched on he is for 24. He understands the actual society we all live in, not the fabricated one we read about.

He quite cleverly, never ever politicises, he goes to the heart of the matter and makes his point there.


Buzzo 17-11-20 11:19 AM

Heartbreaking, and more common than I suspect anyone is prepared to admit.

Quote:

Rashford said: “I only started reading at 17, and it completely changed my outlook and mentality. I just wish I was offered the opportunity to really engage with reading more as a child, but books were never a thing we could budget for as a family when we needed to put food on the table.

“There were times where the escapism of reading could have really helped me. I want this escapism for all children. Not just those that can afford it. We know there are over 380,000 children across the UK today that have never owned a book, children that are in vulnerable environments. That has to change. My books are, and always will be, for every child, even if I have to deliver them myself. We will reach them.”

Think thats why he is cutting through so much. No shouting and hollering when the Government didnt do as he campaigned for. Just called for more conversations and pushed it along. Even had people like Nigel Farage on his side ffs.

Hes doing well, and hes the sort of voice this country needs more of. :rock:
