It also states "According to the British media, the arrest of the player – later released on bail – whose personal details have not been officially disclosed for privacy reasons, was carried out by the Greater Manchester Police"

 

 

 

Yeah it's a strange one, they could have been referring to a different article , which seems to have named him, but then retracted it in the article but left it in the URL. And even so, that's not a British site as far as I can tell.

I mean he's not guilty yet right. 

 

 

Yes but under EPL ODT rules he is guilty until he can prove he is innocent. Strange that this case is so confidential, yet so transparent, whereas...

I see my original post was deleted by a mod and then the subsequent one had the potential referencing URL also removed, this is fine I guess, but are we not allowed to discuss the potential identity? It's not like there is a court order or anonymity injunction, big difference to 'not disclosed' information.

The Attorney General has issued a stark warning to people posting on social media about a Premier League footballer who has been arrested on suspicion of child sex offences. 

 

Twitter, Facebook and Instagram became littered with memes on Tuesday morning purporting to identify the professional athlete who has not been charged. 

 

Britain's chief legal adviser has warned that such posts could be in contempt of court - a crime that carries a potential prison sentence. 

 

The Attorney General, Rt Hon Michael Ellis QC MP, said: "Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and everyone deserves a fair trial.

 

"A mis-judged tweet or post could have grave repercussions and interfere with a trial. It could mean a trial is delayed or at worst stopped because a fair trial isn’t possible – so I would caution everyone, don’t get in the way of justice being done.

 

 "The Attorney General’s Office will monitor the situation and we will review any contempt of court allegations made to us."

Aye, bit of a difference between saying 'it's him', a la the social media numptees, and linking a news website article, mind. That said, have no issues with complying with the requests of wullie/mike, just didn't see them.

TBF to Lukey Luke, he already wrote his own hit piece on him last season.

 

Fair play to the Spectator pivoting to an individuals shouldn't benefit from commercial deals and capitalism is actually bad angle though. Didn't see that coming. Plus we've been repeatedly told they're good, honest lads so there's no ulterior motive in play.

The same company that pays Luke Edwards own this rag.

 

I like Marcus Rashford and absolutely commend everything he's done in recent years to help kids in poverty, but something rings hollow when he's prepared to accepted an MBE from the fucking royal family.

 

Wish more people of his profile would tell them to get fucked.

An MBE from the Queen for a young black athletes charity work is an endorsement not only of his charitable work, but of him too.

 

It will open a lot of doors for him post football.

 

As cynical as it sounds, accepting the MBE will be a great career move.

Great for a career move, but rank hypocrisy.

 

'Member of the Order of the British Empire', ffs. 

 

And yes, of course that's not at all surprising from footballers/celebrities these days. It's just a sad indictment that many of them think getting a silver medal from that lot sends a powerful message.

Could just wait until the book he was researching is published. 


Sure Townshend just signed for Everton too. Coincidence?!

Clearly Rashford is passionate about helping people in causes close to him - he's not the 'brains' behind his operations. It's his PR team/family that are coordinating things.  In other words, he's not in it for the politics.
