On This Day.

Me and my mate had to hide in someones back garden after being chased through some residential area afterwards.

They didn't take defeat very well.
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!

Looks like it’s the defender to me. But I’ve only watched it on my phone so I might be wrong obviously

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.
