    What’s that all about?
    Surely he’s offside the moment he plays the ball?

    Yet twice tonight the linesman waits for a goal to be scored before ruling it out.

    It’s how the offside law is now interpreted and was in all last season aka it happened loads on MOTD. It’s annoying why it’s been passed through but apparently until the entire passage of play has been completed the lino isn’t meant to raise his flag. Whether it’s to do with VAR having to double check things or not I’m not sure but it’s bollocks. Not sure why McCoist is banging on about it, he’s known the law change all season.

    Not flagging is because of VAR! If they flag early and they are not offside you can’t continue with the game unlike not flagging until the ball is in the net when you can then take the play back for offside.

    But in the past the ref could acknowledge the lino and play on. So there was no need to change it.

    Bet it’s binned for next season.

    I understand the VAR ” lines ” are being widened next season to allow forwards more leeway to be onside, about bloody time, some goals that have been disallowed for hairline decisions in the last year or so has been ridiculous and goes against the spirit of why fans wanted a fairer means of correct decision making in football. It’s gone from the sublime to the ridiculous and the attacking side of he game which is what we all want to see has suffered as a result. Once again VAR is not to blame but the interpretation of how it’s used is.

    BI66 – it’s rather a lot like the tail wagging the dog.

    Another “benefit” of VAR, the gift that keeps on giving to football fans everywhere.

    Unfortunately the premier league like it or not runs English football, and money talks so people don’t want to make mistakes because of it.
