Not making excuses as we deserved to be dumped out due to our inept and cowardly set up but that’s another story.

Their second goal though? Regardless of whether it brushes his foot or not I just can’t get my head around how he’s not deemed as offside. He interacts with the ball by skipping over it, it’s a dummy so he’s manipulating the ball which is interfering with play from an offside position.

I can’t think of any examples but I’m sure I’ve seen plenty of similar incidents given as offside hence my confusion.

please can someone explain to me the rules as I thought I understood them?

Thread title is nearly as confusing as the offside law..

Surely offside as the pass was to a player who was offside so he was interfering with play.
if those aren’t the rules then the rules are nonsensical.
If it was one of those where we were the attacking team and it was given offside I wouldn’t have had any issues with it

I totally agree about both the fouls and the result but I really don’t understand how he’s not deemed as offside. If that is allowed then the rule totally needs refining.

sure I heard the ref they have on BT say as it didn’t hit his legs on the way through that it didn’t affect.

the offside ruling is fucked.
