Sunderland vs Liverpool

with one comment

Yesterday’s game had strangest ever goal seen at The Stadium of Light…..

………but Darren Bent won’t be too bothered.

A  few referees have been on the radio since yesterday afternoon declaring that the goal ought not to have counted, and the game should have been stopped and restarted with a drop ball on the six yard line. At the end of the day match referee Mr. Jones consulted his assistant referee (linesman) and came to a decision – the referee’s decision is final (that’s another rule).

What did you think of it? Video from BBC’s Match of the Day.

  1. As an ex referee and linesman, tell you how long ago that was, they are now Assistants, we were taught unless it’s a blade of grass, if anything like for example another football rolls on to the pitch or a cat or a dog, you stop the game remove the obstruction and bounce the ball.

    The rule states any out side agency enters the field of play or causes a goal the game shall be stopped the obstruction removed and the game re started with a drop ball ( bounce ball ) the goal shall be disallowed….

    That is the law, but I’ve seen again at Liverpool the ball hitting a balloon and the game and goal was allowed.
