Yes but what is mings supposed to apart from launch he can't not touch it because he will have someone running on to him from in front of him , he can't control it because someone sneaking behind shocking rule
Under the law, the decision to give the goal is correct. When the forward wins the ball off an opponent, there is a reset to a new phase of play, and the earlier offside is nullified. If you don't like the law the law can be changed, but it's not a VAR issue.
So is there any instance of an assistant referee seeing a player in an offside position receive a ball (advancing on goal), no matter how far "behind" the 2nd to last defender he is when the ball is played, where he can raise the flag immediately?
They only do it if they are certain the forward is offside. Any doubt at all and the advice is to keep the flag down until the move ends. In either case, the move only ends when the ref blows his whistle. A goal scored by Newcastle against Sheffield United last season is one such example where the ref waved play on while the flag was up. VAR then gave the goal.
The argument against the wait, is that there is a risk of injury to players. I have to yet see one injury in any competition with VAR, caused because the flag didn't go up until the end of the move.
VAR has to go solely of the reason that it destroys genuine entertainment and excitement. I mean you can't emotionally explode anymore on a goal from your team because you know that it might be overturned. Do leave VAR only for those cases where a guy is 2m offside or when some dude does foul someone Zidane-headbutt-style - the real gross things.
Most goals are not overturned. Once the goal is valid, there is no problem. VAR is not about emotion or entertainment, it's about accuracy. Oliver has admitted that it was wrong not to use VAR for the Pickford kung fu impression. As regards us, I knew from Day 1 that a few decisions would go against us, and I would have to be prepared for that. When a big VAR decision goes against us now, I know it's probably right so I don't lose my rag, I just sit down again, as I used to years ago when we would think we've scored, only to then see the flag already up, which was often the wrong decision. Fans used to complain every week about divers winning penalties in the box. It doesn't happen anymore, and the sport is far better for it.
If the league was won by entertainment, you could hand City the league every year. But it's won on results, and the result at the end of 90 minutes must be correct. The alternative is more days/nights like Kiev, with no VAR and officiating still stuck in the 19th Century.
