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.

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

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.

Yeah, fair point

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.

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.

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.

Rashford again.

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.

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.

Will be fascinating to see what Rashford does after football. It’s some profile he already has. A very impressive young man.

Quote:
Manchester United and England forward Marcus Rashford has spoken to former US President Barack Obama about how young people can impact society.

Rashford, 23, led a campaign to tackle child food poverty last year during the coronavirus pandemic and was appointed an MBE.

He has also set up a book club to get disadvantaged children reading more.

"A lot of the young people I meet - including Marcus - they're ahead of where I was when I was 23," said Obama.

"They're already making changes and being positive forces in their communities."

Obama, 59, and Rashford spoke over a video conference and also discussed their shared experiences, including being raised by single mothers.

Rashford said it was "quite surreal" to speak to the 44th US President while sitting in his kitchen.

"But, immediately, he made me feel at ease," he added.

"It wasn't long before I realised just how aligned our experiences as children were in shaping the men you see today - adversity, obstacles and all.

"I genuinely enjoyed every minute of it. When President Obama speaks, all you want to do is listen."

It's easy to say he has the resources to make all this happen but what were you doing at 23 years of age? Getting drunk and chasing clunge no doubt!

Rashford is a hugely impressive person in my eyes.

I had a child and a mortgage tbf

Rashford is an inspiration to us as we're a bit older but you wonder if his work outside football gets much notice from the youth

It is easy to say that because it's the truth. Like all rich and famous people, it's great that some of them do these things, really genuinely commendable. But that also doesn't change the fact that there is a certain privilege that allows them too.

Yes he has that certain privilege now, but hearing about his background, not being able to afford books and not/barely having enough money for food and heat etc. He has been at the other end too, clearly he is doing what he is doing because he cares and because of that. I imagine there are loads of kids in the position he was in growing say if they got rich they would do something about it, he has followed through on it. Loads of other rich people could do it and while some of them are many aren't so he deserves huge credit for it.

That charity index thing has him on 125% - given away more than he’s worth (£20m ish). Aye he wouldn’t be in a position to do so otherwise but that’s just begrudging him his success.

Hendo’s given away about £4m of £20m or summat

The fact he is using that privilege as he is doing speaks volumes about him though. Plenty of others have as much and more privilege than him and do not do a fraction of what he has done and is strying to do.


He strikes me as the sort that even if he did not have the platform he has now, that he would still have found a way to get involved in some way to help others.

He is just lucky enough to be a wealthy footballer and as such can use that extra wealth and publicty to do even more good than if he was Joe Public.

Would also say that those who have been helped thanks to the actions of Rashford are lucky that a lad like him became a wealthy footballer and not someone a lot more selfish that was less self aware.

Absolutely he deserves credit for it. He doesn't have to do anything. There's nothing wrong with using that privilege for this sort of thing at all

Yes agree with all that, I don't think there's anything wrong with him using his privilege for this. My point was merely that it exists, it's not a bad thing.
