The US tax is based on a recent court decision that has determined that sales made by a retailer based out of state now have to charge sales tax, when previously they did not. This is having a huge impact on online retailers who are having to find several years worth of back taxes to stump up, as th...

Re: Crouch - Dyche comments regarding him signing

Presuming that Wood and Barnes are the preferred pairing up front, that leaves us (potentially) with Wells, Vydra and Crouch as back-up. That's not terrible is it?

Re: Che Adams on way to Southampton according to sky

So whilst the acts with the most votes got through, the votes were easily rigged by the producers.
