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

You see players come back from offside positions all the time, but purposely they leave the ball alone.

It's a pony rule and there needs to be some consistency with the ruling on offsides and how it impacts on play. As someone said, you can be half a finger offside and it be ruled out but be 20 yards off not interfering with play until it comes near the defender and sneak up and rip their kegs down and the goal stands. It's a scandalous loophole.

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

 

 You can’t tackle them as soon as go to play the ball. You have to wait for them to have played the ball. If rodri challenges as mings chests it then he is offside. He waits for him to chest it down and then attempts the tackle .   And the header forward wasn’t an attempted pass to Rodri anyway - hence it’s different to your corner flat ....there are arguments here which seem to indicate that people want common-sense to be the law ....that would allow for more fiddling of decisions for big clubs to  be justified.

Does this “deliberately “ playing of-the ball apply to goalkeepers ?.....If so it means a forward could just stand few yards out ,blatantly offside and when the keeper makes a deliberate play of making a save and parrying it the forward can then score....crazy rule

That's happened quite early in the game.

 

Man United spent much of the early season coming back from behind, I won't get any hopes up unless Fulham score two more.

They make it up at the time where goalkeepers are concerned. See also "the collision was inevitable", which coincidentally was also in Man City's favour.
