That tosser of an ex referee doing a complete 180 after the game. "I've spoken to the governing body who have explained it to me. I understand now and I got it wrong"
What a load of utter shite. They told him to change his stance. Or else. What a pathetic human being. He had the chance there to really make a name for himself. Instead of him peddling the obvious bullshit explanation he could of said:
"well I've listened to their explanation but I believe they are wrong. Mings didn't play the ball deliberately and concede possession he was dispossessed by a player coming back from an offside position "
I've forgotten his name already but I guarantee I'd have remembered it if he'd had the balls to call out their bullshit.

That Peter Walton is about as much use as a pair of sunglasses to a bloke with one ear.

Sounds like the kind of shit spoken by a cult member. I understand now, it's me, I'm wrong.

Don't think I've ever been so irate about an incident since Thierry Henry and his fucking free kick. Still raging.More so with the mealy mouthed "experts" explaining how it patently is a rule and any other narrative is irrelevant.

It's because that's not really the rule! It just got reinterpreted last night.

The rule as written is to say that if a defender does a dodgy backpass which is intercepted by the striker, that's ok.

It was never written to mean a striker in an offside position can tackle the last defender with impunity!

The more I look at it, the more I wonder whether the linesman kept his flag down, as they have been doing all season in these offside situations, and then, when they scored, he lost his nerve about calling it offside.

If that's the case, then we've been done by the polar opposite of the Lansbury goal at Palace last season.

I must admit I didn't understand why it's happening but I think it was Risso explained it's due to allowing VAR to be used so play is not stopped. However keeping the flag is another crazy situation because of VAR.

VAR is rubbish as well as the rules to accommodate it and it's spoiling too many things all at once. Also we're now seeing tweaks to the rule part way through a season and it does sometimes feel we are becoming guinea pigs. Ollie would have had maybe two more goals ti his name if the same thing happened this weekend.

All I can tell you is they talk about the clear and obvious error and intervention yet what exactly did Moss feed back to VAR in what he had seen. Andy Madderly on Var, from the info provided, despite the clear images, thought it was not enough to intervene and therefore he stood by and let the senior man Moss have his way so not to look as undermining him.

Match of the Day last night supporting the goal, but admitting the law needs changing - but I still feel it was misinterpreted due to the 'receives' definition.

if they DON'T make a change, or clarify this, then I don't see how it won't lead to change in the way some forwards play the line.  Imagine making a run in behind, but knowing you're offside, so you stop running, the flag stays down, the defender goes to get it, the second he touches it, you can tackle him - perhaps 30 or 40 years further upfield.  There will be no penalty for making fake offside runs that force defenders into retreating to get the ball.  I can see there being a bit of carnage for a few weeks as wiley forward try to benefit fro this.

On any set piece we should put a player close to the goal. The taker should shoot, a defender will try to block it, thus deliberately playing the ball and any ricochet or deflection can be seized upon.

It's bollocks and they know it. Wankers.
