I'm fortunate that I can work remotely so my income is unaffected (although I have less to spend money on now of course). That being said I'm trying to save as much of my wage as I can for the foreseeable in case this drags on longer and my company needs to furlough staff. So much uncertainty it's b...

I guess the difference is that the player Mee fouled had possession of the ball and Ben didn't whilst the aerial battle was a 50/50

Re: Ben Mee

Taylor left a gap open at the back, which was exposed when Jay lost the ball. Ben had to make a decision and was a centimetre away from an inch perfect tackle.

He's won us far more points than he's cost us this season that's for sure.

What about giving Vydra stick for missing his chances?
