Re: Ben Mee’s goal

The way Westwood delivers them corners it must be horrific for a goalie. Westwood has got those corners down to fine art, must be nightmare to defend. ‘Bashley’ also has it down pat, how he dances around to distract the goalie. The opposition know it’s coming, more power to Dyche and his crew in ma...

Scandalous that it’s needed in a country like ours but fantastic to see so many people willing to help.

Marijuana was legalised in Canada last year, October I think. I don’t partake, but I guess one reason for legalisation was to get a ‘piece of the pie’ in the form of taxation. Another reason could be trying to reduce the black market.
