Quite.

If Mark Lawrenson was a woman the BBC would have put him out to pasture years ago

To be fair to the 7th officials, or whatever they go by, they are mic'd up and I've seen them speaking to the ref via the radio on a number of occasions. They have no whistle to blow, or hand-movements to do, so I think a lot of their 'work' goes largely unnoticed. I'm not condoning the official last night. He should have been straight on the radio to say it went over the line.

As with us versus Germany, it was immediately obvious that it was over the line.

But then, I also thought it was immediately obvious that their guy was a couple of yards offside....

Mind you, I really think they need to address the bollocks "phase of play" stuff in the offside rule, how you can say that Spain's goal against Croatia wasn't EXACTLY what the offside rule was originally brought in to prevent is beyond me.

I'm not sure they've gone our way as such in terms of decisions. The decision not to award their blatant goal was immediately preceded by a decision not to award the blatant offside, so they balanced out.

Septic doesn't see it that way, the fact that a goal was rightly not given against us but for the wrong reason makes goal line technology a 'necessity'... :footinmouth:

I prefer it now. Endless offsides makes for dull football

It's how I'd describe the Navas goal.
