The goal that Newcastle have just had disallowed, don't see how the players offside were interfering. A joke IMO. Interested in your thoughts if ya watching.

Joe Hart appealed for the offside but there was no way he would have saved it. Looked like 3 in an offside position but not interfering.

Pardew telling the Ref as they went off for HT The linesman's right your wrong, I fully agree with him.

All I can think is the ref must've thought it brushed the player closest to Hart.

Make's a change to see other teams getting the rough end of the referee's stick!

A very poor decision. Going to be interesting how Newcastle react in the second half.

I'm of the opinion that if your on the pitch, your interfering with play, especially if your stood in front of the goalkeeper.

How is it not offside? Gouffran was 2 yards from the line and moved out of the way of the ball - hence interfering with play. If he wasn't interfering why did he move? Because he knew the ball would have hit him and he would have stopped a goal. Thats why he's offside.

according to Fifa rulebook...

"Interfering with an opponent means:
making a gesture or movement in accordance to the ball in play"

Gouffran made a 'movement' because of the ball - offside.
