lol Mate, we've played 19 (nineteen) games out of a 38 game season. I think you need to get your brain into gear if you're getting worked up about other teams results this early.

Mate, stick to wanting man city  to go top of the  league  and above us, whatever the time of year it is.

The rules are made up as they go along to suit the big clubs. It will always happen sadly and it would be great to see referee's come out and talk about the pressure there under. I mean are they influenced. Of course we will never know as ref are about silent treatments.

This is just not true. This rule has been in place for a while.

I'll take their word the decision was correct as got better things to do than read the IFAB pages, but why doesn't the former professional referee who is paid by BT specifically to discuss officiating decisions not know them? Inept refs on the pitch, and equally inept ones on TV.

The thing that needs to be looked at is advantage gained. Does Rodri gain an advantage from being in an offside position? Yes - goal shouldn’t count.

Compare this to goals which are ruled out for less than a mm of armpit hair where no resonance advantage is gained. 
Absolutely ridiculous 

Seems if that is the rule they are using then yet again it is ridiculous... Rodri gains a massive advantage

If that first goal is allowed by the rules then there is a problem with the rules. Any defender in that situation is at a severe disadvantage because he has to stand still to control the ball, while the opposing player is able to start a sprint 20 yards behind him and arrive at full pelt to nick the ball of him the second he tries to bring it down. That cannot be fair and if the rules allow that to happen they should be changed. 

Or the defender could do nothing, let the ball go by, and the offside player running towards it is called offside. The situation we've just seen feels wrong, so there probably is a problem with the rule. Law, sorry.

This is just warm up for the Man Utd game. Hope Fernandes snaps his ankle before their inevitable penalty.

 

Side note,  VAR really has been good to us thus far.

It has given the right decisions, so no complaints...

Onside / offside, Mings should have leathered it.

 

As a centre back, if you fanny about trying to chest it and control a high ball as it lands, you are going to come unstuck at some point.

If VAR was as all encompassing bent as some think it is in regard to ensuring we aren't anywhere near the title race then why did they overturn that penalty yesterday, not judge Vardy to have clipped Rudiger for Maddison's goal and rule out Werner's?

 

One minute VAR is purely wanting Liverpool to win the league (last season) now it's Spurs early on, then Man Utd and now Man City? Come on, stop pulling pissers. It's just shit full stop. 

 

This is a man that knows his Tangy Toms!!

The referees just trying to save face with this phase of play bollocks. They might have some sort of small print that says that can be onside, however common sense tells you that is offside. 

 

Hard to have any sympathy for Villa though, dirty bastards.

I'm amazed you can remember what comment I made/didn't make 5 and a half years ago to be honest.

 

I probably just thought the lino missed an offside as opposed to this 'deliberately played the ball' malarkey.

Ha - of course I dont remember ...... ‘you’ was used as any of us, not specifically you 

 

my point is it isn’t a new law ... we benefited from it five years ago!   Though the reality was that the lino  missed Marc being offside!

I remember early in the season Leeds were playing someone and Patrick Bamford scored a good goal, only for to be rubbed out  because he stuck arm to tell team mate where to put it. I mean how's that an advantage, he's not going to score with his hand is he.

I actually think that’s onside. The attacker doesn’t interfere until Mings has deliberately played the ball.

That is the reason it is given, the rule is lent great though because Rodri clearly forces the mistake from an offside position

No - you have to wait for the player to deliberately play the ball and then you can challenge them. Defenders should know the laws of the game 

So you can stand offside, and tackle them as soon as they go to play the ball. 

 

You can also stand near the corner flag, have someone chip the ball to the corner flag. As long as the striker doesn't control the ball or try to tackle the defender before they touch it then it's fair game. I'm all for allowing play to continue if a player is offside and doesn't affect the game. Having a rule that allows them to be offside and then directly effect the match within seconds is appalling lol

Exactly. Could’ve given offside and avoid all controversy. It likely would’ve been seen as a valid decision too.

 

No sympathy for Villa though. It’s Villa.
