Poor old Ian Rush would have ben permanently offside with that hooter.
Spurs fans had a chant about Ozil's eyeballs being offside Smile

Correct....it should be were the feet are. That's the first change needed and see how that goes for a season. 
Also making an injured player walk off then come right back on is a load of bollocks too. ..dunno..

I'd settle for Grealish pulling his socks up, and getting a decent haircut. Don't know what the fuss is when it comes to Grealish. Very average.
Grealish is a decent player not great - so the move for Villa is to sell him to Manure for 80 million and turn around a buy 3 or 4 good players with that dosh.

Apparently the football "law-makers" - whoever they actually are - have cottoned on to the problems to do with how VAR is used as being the issue as per this article
However I take issue with Mark Halsey's comments that the guidance can't be changed halfway through the season. Why on earth not? If something needs fixing then fix it now. If anything, the proposed guidance would have an immediate positive effect without changing anything that players do on the pitch - it would only change what the refs do.

A good point made was that if something needs reviewing several times from loads of angles then it's not "clear and obvious" anyway.

A year or so ago I mentioned my mate saying that Liverpool had a long term plan and that he'd heard from inside the club that Klopp had refused some obvious signings as he was intent on signing specific players and was prepared to wait for them to become available - e.g. Van Dyke. He'd done the same at Mainz who I follow as my German nephews support them - and got them promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time. At the time I thought it was a brave strategy as they were losing games and Klopp was under pressure to deliver, but it's now obvious that the whole club had bought into his plan.
Now they've gone an entire year without losing in the Prem.

And they're champions of the world.
I know Klopp's a great manager and Liverpool have a relatively huge budget, but this story emphasises what can happen when a manager's long term plan gets the backing of his club and they are prepared to give him the time to put it into action - a bit like Ferguson's appointment at Manure when they lost regularly at the start but stuck with him.
It's taken Klopp over 4 years to get to here but now he seems to have established Liverpool as top dogs again.
I'm kind of hoping that in some small way, Hill and Flitcroft - limited as they are - have a long term plan and that the fans and board give them time to rebuild some semblance of the BWFC we used to know, even if they have to go down to L2 and have no money. They showed some foresight in the transfer window and maybe, just maybe they can do the job if everyone is patient with them.

Wilbraham definitely scored - as did all the actors on Richard Desmond's pornography channel.

And I'm not talking about his other publications like the Daily Star

Join the club. I walked into my tool shed 3 times this morning before I remembered what I was going for. And I still can't find my pipe wrench.

Jimmy Phillips son Nathaniel played CB for Liverpool and looked decent. Was he ever at our academy?

Report in one paper that Marcus Rashford is bringing out his own range of toilet paper.

What an opportunity Danny Shittu missed.

Erling Braut Haaland - what a striker!
The 19 year old Norwegian did it again tonight scoring 2 and giving Dortmund a narrow lead to take into their second leg with PSG. Raw talent at it's finest and part of a young Dortmund side that includes Sancho, who he is outshining. But you can't argue with 39 goals in 29 games this season so far and 11 in 7 for Dortmund since he joined them in January. Manure must be kicking themselves seeing as he played for OGS growing up.
