Unusual to have both the gods and the linesman on our side at the same time.
We've been tied up in Nottingham for the past few days and I bored Mrs Boc with that story as we walked past the City Ground on the anniversary of the game on Thursday.
I finished up walking back to the car in a bin bag for a disguise. The Pompey fans did think they had good reason for their discontent. After all they had earned 17 more points than us during the season (or was it 7?) and should not have had to face the indignity of the playoffs. Ha!
Was he? Looked ok to me.
Keeper was beyond him.
Linesman wasn't clear on the detail of the offside rule either.
He didn’t touch the ball though. When was the rule of interfering with play introduced?
Ormondroyd touching the ball. It's pretty clear he does and the commentator even says that, too. Unless I'm misinterpreting what you're saying, which is entirely possible.
Looks like it’s the defender to me. But I’ve only watched it on my phone so I might be wrong obviously
Yeah it's definitely Sticks. It's not exactly HD, though, so I get why it might not be the clearest on a phone
Hang on a minute, if the keeper is in front of the ball and there is a defender on the line, if an attacking player who is between the keeper and the last defender score it's offside?
Yes. Unless there are two defenders on the line
To be onside you have to have two opposing players between you and the goal. Surely everyone knows that?
The fact that one of them is a goalkeeper is irrelevant. If there are fewer than two opposition players, between the attacker and the goal line, they are in an offside position (not to be confused with being offside). The fact that there is normally a goalkeeper in one of those positions means that people tend to concentrate on the last defender. There could be two defenders (but no goalkeeper) between the attacker and the goal line and the player would therefore be onside, for instance.
We played in yellow
Meanwhile on this day last year the groundsmen truly excelled themselves.
The linesman didn't.
