    Hull player hits the post from being both onside and the ball having not been played by a Hull player, anyway. Linesman plays on, which he's not supposed to do and then calls the offside once it's clear United have no advantage, having hoofed it out for a Hull throw deep in United's half.

    Hull giving as good as they've got so far. A good back at 20/1 to win <ok>

    "The in-form Martial, who has scored in both of his last 2 appearances" <laugh> They have to set very low standards to big up United players these days.

    Another interesting article on the BBC highlighting the impact that the Spammers vacation of the Boleyn ground has already had on the local area. Pretty much defines them: financial greed overcoming any possible consideration for the community.

    Do think it's strange that they used a stadium shot from their recent game with Chelsea..... <laugh>

    Can't wait for the BBC headline "Offisde Goal Breaks Stubborn Hull's Resolve".

    "A young British manager, like Thierry Henry, would have won that game for Hull" - Paul Merson :D

    It's too close to call says Phil Neville.

    Thanks for that Phillip. Learn the rules, it was offside.

    Yes, but was the tea cosy washed and ironed?

    I think he was trying to say that the officials could not have called it in real time because it was so marginal and Mata was running back from an offside position. At the point Sky froze the frame - showing the ball on Mickey Taryan's head - Mata had half a leg offside. Those decisions are a lottery without the use of that technology. Should the ref be reviewing the video evidence after every goal to check whether there was an offside - much like they do in cricket after a wicket to check for a no ball etc?

    Why is anyone surprised? We have an increasing body of evidence showing that the offside rule doesn't apply to ManU (or indeed the one about being sent off for dong violent things). But don't worry, it's another win for the "United have turned the corner" narrative (TM).

    City have been charged with breaching anti-doping rules:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38588913

    Sounds like a big deal, based upon the headline, but reading the whole article suggests otherwise.
    I think that they just made a minor oversight on the clerical side and it'll end up being a relatively small fine and a warning.
    Have to ensure that everyone follows the rules, but I don't think it's anything significant on it's own.

    Clubs have to tell officials where players are so they can be randomly drug tested. Similar rules against in most sports so that athletes can't dodge testing and plead ignorance/misunderstanding/bad timing etc when testing is avoided. It probably has resulted from some clerical error, but I'm not sure breaches are treated as minor. Rio Ferdinand knows how seriously missed tests are taken.

    I'm getting so fed up with the awful clickbait style headlines on the Beeb lately. They're by no means the only one but they're becoming as bad as the pile of ****e Mail etc for sensationalist headlines that bear no real truth to the actual article.
    Hey ho, maybe this should be in the Hack Watch post but seemed rather fitting seen as though the topic has been raised here. Quality journalism is rapidly becoming a dying art unfortunately.

    Unfortunate for Clasie to get injured. He and Romeu have been excellent this evening.
