  1. Kop not sold out shocker

    Aisle seats and fairly quiet area for my wife who suffers anxiety. We sat there once before ST purchase and we liked it. Its not that bad if undont mind peering around a pole occasionally
  2. Kop not sold out shocker

    They are quite obviously badged as restricted view. My ST used to be in one of the RV areas, but I was more than aware of that when purchasing.
  3. Kop not sold out shocker

    I was always of the impression that DC was purchasing these seats to pump a little cash in. No idea where i had this idea from, probablies read it on here.

    Is tht not reserved for Evans?
  5. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    Ironically, to play offside.
  6. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    Still too close to call definitively. The angle doesnt help. We need one of those fan dangle lines that motd draw on tele box to be sure 100%. It looks level to me but it happens very quickly and the optimum position will be the assistants. Win some lose some. A sickener as its so late on. But we are in good form right now. We need to continue that instead of getti g caught up on what could have been. Cant win em all but absolutely have to win the next 1
  7. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    So Bamba is C. Tomlin A. And Mendez Laing B1& B2. Player A passes to player B when player C is in an offside position. In the real life player A shot at goal and ball arrived at player B in B2 position whose starting position was B1. Then B2 passes to player c. Who was in an onside position when it was passed to him by b2 so cannot be penalised.
  8. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    That copy and paste has not been taken from the current laws of the game 17-18. The picture below is the closest scenario provided in the lotg when deciding when a player becomes active. For the purposes of offside. I know we'd all like this to be offside which gives is some grievance but the match officials have got this right.
  9. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    He didnt get to the rebound. The rebound fell to another player who then passed it to bamba who scored. Edit: who may or may not have been in an offside position..the angle doesn't help but I think he is level with the ball when played.
  10. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    Speaking as a referee I can assure you that is not the case.
  11. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    2. Offside offence A player in an offside position at the moment the ball is played or touched by a team-mate is only penalised on becoming involved in active play by: • interfering with play by playing or touching a ball passed or touched by a team-mate or • interfering with an opponent by: • preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or • challenging an opponent for the ball or clearly attempting to play a ball which is close to him when this action impacts on an opponent or • making an obvious action which clearly impacts on the ability of an opponent to play the ball or • gaining an advantage by playing the ball or interfering with an opponent when it has: • rebounded or been deflected off the goalpost, crossbar, match official or an opponent • been deliberately saved by any opponent A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent who deliberately plays the ball (except from a deliberate save by any opponent) is not considered to have gained an advantage. A ‘save’ is when a player stops, or attempts to stop, a ball which is going into or very close to the goal with any part of the body except the hands/arms (unless the goalkeeper within the penalty area). In situations where: • a player moving from, or standing in, an offside position is in the way of an opponent and interferes with the movement of the opponent towards the ball this is an offside offence if it impacts on the ability of the opponent to play or challenge for the ball; if the player moves into the way of an opponent and impedes the opponent’s progress (e.g. blocks the opponent) the offence should be penalised under Law 12. • a player in an offside position is moving towards the ball with the intention of playing the ball and is fouled before playing or attempting to play the ball, or challenging an opponent for the ball, the foul is penalised as it has occurred before the offside offence • an offence is committed against a player in an offside position who is already playing or attempting to play the ball, or challenging an opponent for the ball, the offside offence is penalised as it has occurred before the foul challenge
  12. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    If westwood saves and the ball rebounds to bamba its offside. When the ball is saved and goes to his team mate (mendez laing ?) This is a new phase of play.
  13. Cardiff Goal Offside?

    This part is irrelevant as Bamba is not active until the second phase of play. Re: when he actually does come active would need to see a still as at that speed it's close to impossible. I agree with an above post that he looks level with or behind the ball at the point it is kicked to him.
  14. You can argue Harry worked his way up albeit a different path. Academy, pro player, manager. There are different routes. Okay I accept that former players are clearly preferred but they have seen it all theor lives i.e. how its done behins the scenes. Joe Bloggs obviously not. The guy in that documentary probably just needed to start lower and aim high. In such a high stakes environment nobody will take a "risk" or "chance" on Billy noname.
  15. I see what you are saying but just like any job it is entirely possible to work your way up the rankings. I started in a call centre 11 years ago and now I look after daily call centre operations. I am also a referee. Its take 4 years but I am now assisting at semi pro level and lookibg to go further. Again had to start at bottom rung and work through the levels. Same as football. Anyone who thinks they gunna get uefa a and then waltz into a pro/semi pro club is fairly misguided. What you need to do is start somewhere like step 7 ( supply league). There are loads of step 6 and step 5 (contributory leagues) who play their reserves at this level. Do well, what do you know you're now running the 1st team. Do well and the next opportunity opens up. So on and so forth. Again not an expert but look at the lincoln boss... pe teacher? Look at the salford joint managers, now gone pro (ok so got good backing but they have worked hard to get to that level). And whats that scottish lad, Cathro is it? Again, no name but has worked his way to, debatable, the top of scottish football. Bottom line is nothing is given. Do well and be rewarded.
