Are you referring to the undercurrent of racism in certain segments of the British media? Because I genuinely think that's worth discussing. Sterling and now potentially Greenwood have really not had an easy go of it (especially Sterling, which in my opinion was a disgrace).Yes.

I disagree... it’s very relevant to this thread.Agreed. It is not relevant to this thread as the player in question has been identified by the police as being in his twenties.
I’ve seen the article where it says a 20 year old was arrested. That clearly ruled him out. But I can understand how fools on social media could still use that to start rumours that it was him.Having read the article there is nothing in there that points to Mason so can't really fault the media on this one. We can fault all the Brexit loving, Sun readers who assumed it was Mason simply because he is brown and successful.
They went as far as naming the girl , she has since retweeted saying she’s 26 not 17 and has never met Greenwood .Linking the rape and imprisonment to Greenwood came from twitter no doubt, people probably speculating on players who have been taken out of their teams without much explanation.
Greenwood has certainly been targeted more than Foden, despite Foden committing the double sin of cheating on his partner and breaking lockdown rules, but I think at least part of that is just down to Greenwood being a bigger young talent in a bigger club. Last season he was genuinely being lauded by everyone as the most exciting English talent since Rooney and the heir apparent to Kane.
Agreed. I’m no fan of Sterling of obvious reasons but the lad couldn’t cross the street without an article being written abusing him for itAre you referring to the undercurrent of racism in certain segments of the British media?

He needs to be kept out of the limelight for a while. It's really not fair on him. He's lost a friend and needs to be watched closely.One thing no one seems to take into consideration is that Greenwood has put on a significant amount of muscle mass, for context look at his current physique at 18 to Ronaldo at the same age, Ronaldo was gangly at that age. Mason is actually 5’11 but has the short and stocky look because he’s put on a good amount of muscle.
Now it could all be genetics, but he’s build looks like a lot of it has been due to extra weight lifting. That tires you out and takes time to get adapted too.
Add to that the recent death of a friend and it’s no wonder Ole is giving him rest.
Couldn’t agree more. He’s had some rest, now it’s time for him to start firing into the season.I honestly think he just needs to play more. Usually in football criticism tends to diminish or even disappear if you're performing well, and Mason will no doubt score often if he plays often.
Him not being able to answer his critics on the pitch seems like a handicap to me, but whether or not he's fit to play is another matter entirely.
I wish Rashford was his mate tbhHe is a fecking huge talent and a great lad. He’d a bit of a party with a few girls that time with England, big deal the kid is 19 and a millionaire who wouldn’t be at the same thing?
The sky is the limit for this lad and he’s absolutely at the right club with the right manager and just needs to look at his mate Rashford for a role model. Media are absolute pond life trying to make a few quid out of bullshit stories, best to do the talking on the pitch.
I can't forgive him because at 36 years old I've had and survived covid. Now my lung capacity is permanently reduced by 10-15%.I love the kid. Any fan who can't forgive him for trying it on in iceland, really needs to go to Iceland.
Who will? We don't. The lot who do believing stupid media over our own youngsters can do one. These negative nancies don't deserve the accolades when Mason will win the B'dorPeople will sit through a Summer transfer window like we’ve just had where journalists/ITKs were spouting about us being moments away from a whole number of players for it only to be shown as nonsense/lies but will lap up reports about players in a negative light.
There comes a point where you need to put this whole thing into context.
