Irrelevant if he was offside, which he was.

 

But if he just stood still the goal would have stood. It's through his own selfishness in trying to poke it home that he became active and touched the ball, thus stopping it going over.

 

So it's not that irrelevant.

If Carras hand touches the line here Bendtner is NOT offside...

LOL LOL, you think a linesman [who I believe flagged] can spot fingers?? Sami may be there, but Pepe isn't. And if he hadn't touched it and it had counted, it's just further proof that the not interfering with play rule is dumb....which it is regardless.

I agree, the rule is dumb.

How come defenders are not ruled in the same way as strikers? I mean, a defender can be 40 yards away tieing his shoelaces and he's still 'active'. Isn't he? :unsure:

Makes no difference.

 

Of course it does.

 

If he's off the field of play for whatever reason he's not counted. Otherwise players being treated for injuries on the sideline could mark someone onside, which would be completely ridiculous.

Never looked into the rule but my uncle always says players are not allowed leave the field of play unless permitted by the ref and therefore its against the rules to step off the field of play to maximise the offside rule - any statto heads here that can advise on that point ?

If he had left the field of play with the referee's permission (e.g. to be treated for an injury) then of course he would not be active. But if stepping over the goal-line was a legit way of playing someone offside, do you not think players would use it as a regular tactic??

 

Anyway, Sami and Carra were definitely playing Bendner onside - no question about it.

You tell us you've played at a decent level, but you don't appear to know the laws of the game. :D

he was still active, an injured player is a different matter because he would need the ref to allow him back on the playing field
