    It needs to be clear cut. If you are offside then you are offside and the whistle goes. Thats that
    Thats pretty much how im starting to think. Fair enough if you are on the other side of the pitch walking back after an injury or something, but imo if you are anywhere near the play then the defence and goal keeper cannot help but keep an eye on you, and if people are having to pay attention to you then you are interfering with play.

    Same sort of thing with hand balls, we need something clear cut. A few games ago Boro got penalised for handball in the box due to a defender throwing himself infront of the ball. There was no doubt in anyones mind that it was an accident as he wasnt even looking at the ball when it struck his arm, nor did he move his arm towards the ball. BUT there is no doubt it struck his arm, therefore he gained an advantage for Boro...

    I have absolutely no arguement with the desition so long as there is consistancy. IMO unless your arms are down by your sides or infront of your face then its your own fault and it should be a penalty. Accident or not if a team gains an advantage...

    I thought the present version of the offside rule was *perfectly* clear.

    If, on 2nd sunday of the month, a striker with the letter 'r' in his name is less than 10 metres away from the goalkeeper and hasn't had his shirt tugged by a defender then his is offside.

    Unless ... the month has a Q in it, you are playing at a ground below sea level or te owner of the club is a dwarf who has had a sex change and is recoverign from bulimia.

    There ... perfectly clear.

    I will start being worried when Liverpool have gone 25 years without winning the league as thats how long United went without winning it. As long as we dont equal that record I'm happy

    Three players? And how many have you got? Tevez, Rooney and Ronaldo and possibly Ferdinand. Take Ronaldo out of your team and you're no better than any of the other big three.

    Who needs Moscow anyway, i'm still recovering from Istanbul and Athens.

    Remember to take your prawn sandwiches and flask with you! I hear it's quite nippy there.

    Actually the head to head statistics (league + cups) for the last 8 years between Man Utd and Liverpool are surprisingly even.

    2000-present

    Matches played : 19
    Manchester United win : 10
    Draw : 1
    Liverpool win : 8
    Goals scored by Manchester United : 20
    Goals scored by Liverpool : 16

    Fairly even really, though of course we all know that technically individual results are fairly unimportant compared to performance over the course of a season
