Re: Today's footie 21/11/20

Fernandes gives away pen, ref goes and looks and overturns.

WBA player has ball lashed at his torso, as he turns it strikes his arm - ref gives pen without question or review.

Better yet, when it’s saved ref orders a retake upon review as GK is off his line.

You could t write such comedy.

Hi Chorley, I assume you'd advise the Podpoint seen as you've got one. I've been looking at em and cheapest for a 7kw is £550. How did you get your so cheap?
