What do the rules say?

 

De Gea wasn't distracted by him--he was moving to his right to stop the shot, so he could see it coming.

 

It deflected off Maguire and he wasn't getting back to it regardless of whether Siggurdson was there or not.

This. It wasn’t offside at all that’s a disgraceful decision now I’ve got to put up with a sulking blue nose twat for the rest of the day. Fuck you VAR

He's sitting in front of the goalkeeper, people need to read the offside rule if they think that should have stood.

 

Mind you, I'm still bitter about that Everton equaliser in the 1989 FA Cup Final.

Imagine if that happened in a derby. The ref would be inducted into Blueshite folklore like Clive Thomas, Mark Clattenburg and Pierluigi Collina.

I think the only question here is whether Maguire tries to play the ball or not. If he does, it's a new phase of play, and the player sitting in front of de Gea doesn't matter. 

 

I guess with Maguire's general slowness he has a pretty good case of not reacting enough to "play the ball", even if there's some movement from his legs/ankles

Correct call as he's in front of the keeper so he's offside. However, every bloo I know I'll be saying it was a travesty and should have stood. The powers that be, including United, doing their best to thwart the rise of the bloos.

They can't even say they're like a Phoenix as that's red. 

 

The conspiracy theory has already started...,Give it an hour or two and it’ll be our fault

If that happened to us we would be going mental and being a patronising gobshite doesn't make it any different. It was a poor decision IMO. It comes off their player. Sigurdsson doesn't touch the ball. De Gea didn't appear to be distracted by it. Subjective things of course but my opinion is that it should have stood.

  • 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 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

He's not "clearly obstructing" De Gea's line of vision, as De Gea reacts to the initial shot.

No, it's just a bog standard deflection. And Iceland is clearly in De Gea's line of sight. I don't even know why it's up for debate.

It's funny though.

But he can't see the ball after the deflection. Because a big grock is in his way.

Why can't people understand that you don't have to touch the ball to interfere with play?

Why can't you understand the rule properly

Because De Gea isn't 2 inches tall.

And if Sigurddson was in the line of sight to the ball after the deflection, he wasn't interfering with De Gea's ability to stop it as De Gea wasn't getting to it anyway.

 

It's immaterial whether De Gea would have saved it or not. To be offside, the player only needs to be in the goalkeeper's line of sight.
