The A-League, what did we expect really? Terrible defending to go along with that terrible offside call.
The only thing worse than the refereeing decision is the defending. It’s one calamity after the other. The right-back’s leisurely stroll towards the free ball sees him bundled over. Then of course nobody goes to press the now unmarked man. And then there’s the…well what would you call that? A clearance attempt is almost too kind. That’s all without mentioning the goalkeeping at work.
But to top off a terrible exhibition of the game we all love, the goal is called for offside. Perhaps the assistant ref knew it was a goal all along, but felt no team deserved a goal THAT easy. We can only hope.
