I know it's not a competition between footballers or any 'celebrity' and there may be many others doing their bit not in the public eye but Rashford deserves some credit for how he's taking on the government and fighting this fight for children, knowing he was in a similar position at their age too. 

:congrats:

Seems like a man with his head screwed on. I don’t mind famous people getting involved with things like this, it’s when they stick their ore in the wider more divisive issues that wind me up.

So much more than a T shirt worn before a game or back of a match day shirt.

There is more in this than the output of his fellow professional colleges over past 5 years.

Well done to his Mother on raising such an outstanding young man.

Can't speak highly enough of what he's doing which is fucking annoying given he plays for them. Just a likeable chap.

And in an era where footballers are seen in a fairly negative light by the public, this is a great example to bat some of that criticism back.

They are human and despite being paid what they are, I think those that have come from tough backgrounds are actually humble enough to realise the sacrifices that were made to get them there.

Maybe this will inspire others into doing similar things to help the next generation and their aspirations and dreams.

To think, he has shown quite a few senior lads up whilst their busy snapchatting shite and posing on instagram at the ripe old age of 22.

There are a select few players who genuinely seem to care about their community and the wider country and Rashford is one of them.

Sums up how I feel about him too.

Aside from being fairly fucking talented for a 22 year old, he's clearly got a good head on his shoulders. And he doesn't seem like the type to forget where he's from now that he's got money - which, sadly, isn't always the case. Only negative I really have to say about him is he plays for Manchester United, other than that he seems like a very likeable and grounded sort of guy... aside from being a good footballer.

And really it's more important, in the long run, to be a good person rather than a good footballer. So good for him.

That Theresa Coffey is a right bint. What an absurd response to a great cause he's putting across. Shameful.

Can't find the tweet now but they googled 'disconnected' and found this definition...

Disconnect also means a lack of understanding or connection. So there might be a disconnect between you and your brother, or between what a politician promises to do and what she actually does.

The bitch voted against flats to be fit for people to live in. She's a landlord herself. I don't like her already.

People can say he is a celebrity it is easy for him, well i don't see plenty of celebrities doing what he is. Well done to him, good role model for future players. He has the chance to help and he is doing a great job.

Massive kudos to him. He's actually made a difference backed up by his own experience when he was a kid. This is a prime example of what a footballer should be doing to give back to the communities they serve. I have a new found respect for the lad now and I hope he gets a bloody big reception from the United and Spurs fans in their match. Hopefully it makes some of the other footballers to use their privileges for the better.

Heartbreaking just thinking about it. A cause I truly believe in as well. No child should ever worry about when they will be eating next. 

Massive respect to him. It isn't just this as well. I remember a couple years ago on Chalobah's instagram story of Rashford paying for everyone's meal at dinner one night. Just a class character.

This is real though. Even pinned it the pathetic excuse of a woman. Her perspective is wrong - it's not the child's fault. Everybody deserves to have a meal so if there's reasons why they can't, we help them as a society. It's so simple.

She makes it sound like you can have 3 kids and be comfortable but never have circumstances which could change that. 

 

Anyway, I don't want this to detract from the real good news which is what she wants. 

Can't praise Rashford enough as to how he's gone about this in the past few days. Top class.

This. 

I agree to the argument of those that don't want to be responsible for others who have made poor choices, but these are children FFS. They are innocent. It's the very reason I donate to children's hospitals on occasion.
