imho are an absolute joke. Shocker given against man utd yesterday and an even worse decision given against spurs today. Ball kicked from a yard away and ricochets up into his arm, no movement of his arm either, total joke
I agree, it's a joke. Previously, there was a certain degree of subjectivity from the ref as to whether it was deliberate or not.
Of course, years ago, if you were offside, you were offside, regardless of whether you were deemed to be "active" or "interfering with play" or whatever the current term is.
So, on one hand, taking subjectivity out is a bad thing, and on the other, putting subjectivity in is a bad thing.
Funny ol game, innit.
