    Oooh that really isn't good. Again - let the case play out. Not an Everton fan but gotta feel for them.

    And to think some of our fans were up in arms cause Maddison possibly cheated on his fiance while on a lads holiday.

    I know it won’t happen but after seeing how things went when Sunderland tried to cover for Johnson and the fan reaction for and against I hope people are sensible enough to let the police get on with it and not be too partisan about it

    Hopefully they can get a discount from the company that made the Suarez t-shirts.

    How did I wake up in a world where child abuse is funny?

    This is Mike Ashley’s 15th season as Newcastle owner. I wonder how many protesters literally never knew the Freddie Shepherd-era never mind John Hall’s day.

    I see the right wing press are going after Marcus Rashford for *checks notes* having sponsors?!?!

    Surprised it's taken this long after the final tbh.

    There's an actual Man Utd "fan" account that's digging into him. Fucking scum.

    I like how he got ahead of it and basically said 'this is the money I use to feed starving kids' making the article look like trash even before its published.

    But, honestly, so fucking what if he used sponsorship money to build a solid gold toilet? What fucking business is it of theirs? The press in this country are repulsive.

    Also: I know 'fuck twitter' is a popular sentiment on here but this is one of its better uses. Giving people actual right of reply without gatekeepers.

    All of complaining about what Rashford does off the pitch is ridiculous, even more so because he's done really good stuff.

    I mean, by all means criticise him on the pitch. He really needs to have a good season this year before he becomes Lingard 2.0.

    It feels almost as if there's a price on his head for the first one to find some silver bullet on him. This was about as far away from that as you can get though. Pathetic.

    and yeah, really funny that's he's basically pre-empted this nonsense before It's barely off the press and made it worthless.

    Thats the point though because the right wing press don't want him highlighting inequality. Maybe the Spectator etc should have a look at all the Tory sleaze...oh wait.

    Lingard 2.0 haha. Lingard has never had an ounce of talent or form that Rashford has.

    He put up better numbers and performances this season half injured than Lingard ever has for Utd.

    Lingard scored 9 in 16 league matches for West Ham and won POTM. Rashford scored 11 in 37 league matches for Man United. Just saying.

    He does need to get fit though. Otherwise his mate Sancho might take his place.

    Speaking of which, when the fuck is Sancho going to become official?

    Think Rashford is out until Oct having surgery so will give him the rest he needs. Hopefully coming back fresh.

    Will be nice to see Lingard sold this summer for a decent fee.

    Maybe we're just shielding Sancho from the public eye from next week's story about how the selfish greedy bastard spent money on a place to live now he's back in the country.

    Assuming he has been given leave of absence to rest and relax after the Euros before doing his medical.

    Quite. If Beckham had done the same, they wouldn't give a shit.

    Would be nice if they gave the same amount of scrutiny to the finances of cabinet ministers and their dealings.

    Absolutely backwards that footballers are held to a higher standard than politicians.
