It was NOT legit. The rule book says:

Two opposing players must be behind the attacker for him to be onside UNLESS one opposing player plays a DELIBERATE ball back in which case an attacking player is NOT offside. The ball played back was ruled NOT deliberate and there was only ONE opposing player behind the attacker. So offside. Good call in and much kudos to the officials for getting that rare call right in a crazy tense and tough game to officiate.


Didnt we go through this same thing early in the season? Replays show the ball was deliberately played by Milner, and Sane looks onside. It looks legit to me sha.

I said it before. Teams that hold possession more their weak link is in the defense. It has been known about Barca for long but some don't take advantage. e don ope dem eyes well well :clap: :clap: :clap:

Strange you guys don't say this when these teams are winning. No system is foolproof. It has worked for these teams that is why they are top and it will work for them in other games.


Exagerration is so common after big teams fall.
Barca has statistically been the best defensive team in Europe this season. They are undefeated in La Liga and have conceeded less than any team in a top flight league.

To say their defense is their weakness is beyond ignorant.
They just ran into a Roma team that had their number and played a hell of a game to turn around a 4-1 deficit. It happens.
No need to over analyze the result. Just tip your cap and move on.

The refs have the final say but that ball off Milner will be argued about for a while...

Sky, stop it. Which one be good football? Roma were better than Barcelona in this 2nd leg, and until that knockout 3rd goal in the first leg, they were better too. Their footie was more coherent and eye pleasing. To me anyhow.

As for City, they were awfully boring and tedious today. Predictable. Sure, the refs took away a legit 2nd goal from them but I really think Liverpool always had the ability to score the ONE goal that they needed. They, like someone else said, were also the better side.


Bros, I applaud Liverpool and Roma.....they played great and advance I have no issue with that.

But don't tell me you can't see the undertones in some of the posts here today...on Barcelona, Pep, Messi etc....

Abeg tell them .... I learned of that rule during the world cup in South Africa sef as even the commentators didn’t understand why the Ref waved the goal off :mrgreen:

Again, the rule is not that it has to be a "deliberate back pass," the rule is that it has to be a deliberate kick/play by the player. I.e., Milner deliberately kicked the ball, the ball did not bounce off him. That is the distinction.

Also, Sane was onside when De Bruyner played the ball, with the ball coming off Milner, he cant be offside as he got the ball from an opponent. It happened fast, so i can understand the refs missing the call, but it was a blown call.

Not quite. First of, the ball was played by Karius (punches the ball out) then Milner players it before it falls to Sane so definitely not an offside.

Now if it wasn't Karius who played the ball first, then you can argue if it was a deliberate play by Milner. I actually do think Milner deliberately played the ball as he raises his knee to make contact with the ball. that is a deliberate play but I understand can be interpreted differently

Looks like a deliberate attempt by Milner to play the ball....except the ball didnt go where he wanted. THAT is the issue, it was a deliberate play by Milner.

Guardiola did not manage this second leg well at all. No point showing up against United ,the league could be won on another day.

Souness has been going on and on why City resorted to 4 at the back, unless he is only asking for the benefit of the audience,i thought that was obvious. It showed that City were afraid of their second half form, they knew they have a dodgy second half form.

Unless if Kompany was injured, I cannot understand his playing Dinho as a center half....or I thought Laporte was a center half...

Guardiola panicked with the way he approached this game,his loss to United did not help his preparation...psychologically it affected him and his tactical approach to this game...because united sent an alarm bell off.

As for Pool, they played for the second half....they knew City would run out of steam and run out they did. All Pool had to do was ride the storm in the first half like surfers....they did. It was a plan executed to the letters...perfect!
