How do you define clear?
When the lines need to start being drawn to decide if their armpit is offside
"Lots of young fellas runnin' around in shorts, that's the kind of think you like looking at, and I bet you like that too, only you're probably imagining what they'd look like without shorts, you're sitting there imagining that with a big smile on your face, ya dirty fecker"

Good day for VAR.

My favourite bit was when Mings felt like he couldn't celebrate a goal until the guys in the office watched it in microscopic detail 14 times.
My favourite bit was when the linesman incorrectly ruled out Iheanacho's goal and then VAR overruled them and the goal was correctly rewarded with massive celebrations on the Leicester bench

Spoils celebrations though apparently.

Yep

Can you give me an example?

That's a dive and Rashford's was a pen?! :lol:

Okay then ...
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

Do the VAR assistants also get a winners medal this season? Liverpool have bought this title, in 20 years it'll come out how the whole thing was setup by a team of crack programmers from the University of Liverpool.

I think there’ll be changes to the offside law next year. Agreed with Souness in the break.

So which bit of him is offside there then, it can't be his hand because he can't score with that. Is it that tiny bit if his foot which creeps into the yellow line? If it is. :lol:

Same here, any part of the attacker onside then he's onside, not the other way round.

or instead of warping the rules of football to accommodate the farce that is VAR we keep the rules as they are and ban VAR instead

The offside rule is a joke with or without VAR. To the letter of the law, the sorts of offsides like Pukki as well are offside, it shouldn’t be.

I said back then that it should be based on where the feet are. Pretty much what Souness said.

Was watching the first half on Rush. Hoddle made a decent point at HT. There's total over-analysis of a tiny line showing a part of the body that's offside. Offside's taken into account the moment the ball is played. They never over-analyse what that precise moment is. He said it's complete overkill but if you're going to make decisions on such tiny, precise details, you need to look at both sides. If not, don't bother with either.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

difference is without VAR is 9/10 times in really tight offside calls the attacker is given the benefit of the doubt and aren't flagged

Souness said if any part of you is onside, you're onside. I've been saying that for ages and Nut you've been an absolute zealot in favour of this, don't pretend otherwise now. :lol:
