All those heavy flags through the whole season and then the refs come up with this in the last minutes of a CL semifinal.

I would've gone total mental if this happened to us.

That has to be one of the worst decisions in champions league history to sub Kane off then

Looks slightly offside here? Not sure though.


de Ligt looks offside, but isn't the player who got the ball. Did he move enough towards it to be interfering? The other player is very tight, wouldn't hate to have had to do the lines for that!

But that is why they shouldn't be raising the flags and letting it play on if it's that tight unless the attack threat is over.

That offside call ..wow. if I were Bayern I'd be seriously questioning the integrity of the referees team as there was absolutely zero reason for that flag and or whistle at that stage.

And then I'd go up to Thomas tuchel and ask him if he intends on apologizing for absolutely bottling it during the game.

How do Madrid always do it?

It's strange how this quality exists over and above the actual players at the club. The players don't just make the team/club, the club makes the players too.

I don't know where you guys are coming from. Step through that replay. It's the DEFENDER who heads the ball back. It's not offside because the two offensive players in question never touched it.

It's still an offside offense if he's in an offside position. He's challenging an opponent.

For all the abuse officials get in the EPL at not blowing up for what appears an obvious offside — this is why it’s in place.

Bellingham a cert for Ballon D'or now? Or maybe Vini Jr?
I'm guessing Bellingham will win it but he was almost anonymous in the last two rounds. Kane was the better player over the two legs but goes away potless again, actually feel sorry for him tbh.
