    You can only be off side if a part of your body is off side that you can score a goal with. So the PL have said that Raheems shoulder was off side. I suggest the PL read the hand ball law in that case as this states hand ball is the whole of the arm including the shoulder. Thus you cannot score with your shoulder.
     
  2. You don't bounce around the stadium when a linesman gives an offside. You do when you score a last-minute winner only for it to be ruled out 3 minutes later. Eventually that emotional attachment to the team, which is shared with a stadium full of other fans, will disappear (and so will the fans). I wouldn't swap an honest and incorrect decision from a linesman/woman for an experience in which I'm basically detached from the experience like a television viewer watching a game show.

    You are assuming, accepting, that the decisions made by VAR are correct beyond doubt yet, it’s already be brought into disrepute on this forum and by Andy Gray. It is now open to abuse by a bloke in a van who may have an agenda. City have already suffered from incorrect decisions and were knocked out of the ECL last seasons because of VAR and the way it was used

    Ok if that’s true then I’m fine with that however I’m not sure I’ve seen a freeze frame showing both the first contact on the pass and also the exact frame where Raheem’s bicep is shown to be offside..?

    The fact that its impossible to freeze the exact frame when ball leaves foot to determine offside means making a judgement on an inch or two is ridiculous. Also the lengthy delay for var can change the momentum of the game, as we saw yesterday. How convenient to throw in var check when one team is dominating.
