The ball was placed at the right spot and the free kick was taken. Although the ball is under hit.
I was sat next to a referee and he stated he would have allowed the goal.
To be honest it was embarrassing watching the players (and supporters) trying to convince the referee otherwise.

Not irrelevant though is it when the law gets overlooked multiple times week in week out? Uphold the rules properly and refs get shouted at for being pedantic. The ball has been placed so the next touch by the team who were awarded the kick makes the ball active!

Like I said if it happened at the other end no-one on here is whinging and we're laughing at Coventry.

I've only seen it on a replay and for me if I was Macca I wouldn't have made an attempt of getting the ball when their player nipped In. Sounds daft but refs go on body language and Macca clearly felt the ball was live

If the player isn't ten yards but doesn't interfere with play then why would it need to be retaken or even mentioned? It only becomes relevant once the player has gained an advantage or disrupted play, like with offside.

The striker today isn't stood between Clarke and McKeown is he? At what point is he active when he starts maybe 120• behind the direction the ball is played to? The active/non-active thing is a huge grey area that it seems the authorities can't change to black and white.

At the time the ball was played I the Ref was making his way to the other side of the pitch. It wasn’t until he noticed the other outfield players rushing towards our goal that he turned around and bolted back like he had witnessed the whole scenario.

Before this incident, I noted that on another free kick being taken, he focused his attention on the players in the box, without a care in the world from where the ball was delivered from.

Rightly or wrongly, but before that  - they had a stonewall penalty turned down but as their striker was about to shoot (can't remember who it was) they just kicked his feet away - so to be fair it did even out,but the ref was pretty awful all afternoon

If you try and take a quick free kick and accidentally pass it to an opponent 5 yards away it doesn't get retaken, because you've chosen to take it. It's a massive error by Clarke.

I'm 50/50 on this one. I can understand why the goal stands, but there's also two or three things going on that don't make it clear-cut for me - most have already been discussed.

The one thing I'm still not sure on is the positioning of the linesman in all of this. He was stood much further back from where Clarke took the free kick - in line with McKeown - so surely that's the linesman indicating where the kick should be taken from?

Keepers always look across to the linesman to check they're taking the free kick from the right place. I can 100% believe that it was a crap back pass by Clarke, but I also think McKeown would've 100% picked that ball up and replaced it in line with the linesman to take the free kick, had it come to that.

As some of you will know I thought the goal was dodgy at the time. But looking at the replay it was a good goal.

When taking a free kick you can get ready and have all players get 10 yards away. Or you can take it quickly no matter where everyone is. Nothing wrong there.

The striker was behind the ball and not in the direction of where it was played. No obstruction.

The ball had been placed. It wasn't moving. It was kicked towards a team mate. Legitimate free kick.

The linesman or ref hadn't said that it needed to go back. So it was in the right place.

I am not surprised that the ref wasn't looking. He was going in the direction that the ball should have gone in. He has the linesmen to help him. He checked with them on if the goal should stand.

One question. What is your GK doing being out that far? Haven't you got an outfield player that can kick the ball?
