Re: ARTICLE: Under-23s home programme to end at Curzon Ashton

I was talking to a good friend who is an official and who officiated at one of our Under 23 games, he was amazed at Steve Stone's general behaviour towards his own players and the onfield officials.
Mind you, there are plenty of other clubs and coaches who are just as bad and possibly worse.

Re: ARTICLE: Under-23s home programme to end at Curzon Ashton

Very similar to Sunday's game. We had the best of the play, had a goal disallowed very harshly, gave a goal away and missed chances when we were on top and they capitalised because they always looked dangerous on the break. Worked hard to get back on level terms but never looked like winning it. You...

There is nothing in the rules about which way the ball is travelling, to be offside.
