The ball has been placed according to the refs instructions. Ball has been played therefore is alive. Striker perfectly within his rights to go for it. End. If Town had done this we'd be praising the attacker for his quick thinking.

The rules state that an opponent must be 10 yards away when the free kick is taken, He doesn't look 10 yards away to me so the ref got it wrong in my opinion and the goal should have been disallowed.

If, when a free kick is taken, an opponent is closer to the ball than the required distance, the kick is retaken unless the advantage can be applied; but if a player takes a free kick quickly and an opponent who is less than 9.15 m (10 yds) from the ball intercepts it, the referee allows play to continue. However, an opponent who deliberately prevents a free kick being taken quickly must be cautioned for delaying the restart of play. from the fa website.

If the striker wasn't 10 yards away then why did he take it so quickly? Clarke misjudged the weight of the pass plain and simple. I have never seen a ref stop play for a player not being 10 yards away after a free kick is taken.

Agreed Clarke made a school boy error for all his experience 1. He failed to notice how close the striker was and 2. it was such a sloppy back pass he nonchalantly flicks it back without looking Macca had no chance.

I wonder if the players eloquently explained that to the ref ?
If they had pointed that out to the ref he may have realised he had made a mistake.
If the player protests were more focussed on the basis that they dont believe the free kick had been taken then the ref clearly saw it as being so as it had been kicked back from the place the ball was placed.

I am not sure that the ref was actually looking at the ball, think he had turned his back to move up the pitch in anticipation of the kick being launched.

I was at the game and saw the clip of the goal again. I struggle to understand how anyone can blame Clarke for a crap back pass - he is clearly laying it back to Macca to take the kick. Then, a player is less than 10 yards away intercepts the ball. And some people on here are blaming a) Clarke, b) Macca, or c) Slade.  Ref made a howler, ruined a good contest, we got beat by a better team. How hard is that to swallow for some?

I reckon Cov would have nicked it 1-0 near the end otherwise. Can see them being promotion contenders but i thought they looked a bit toothless in the box.

If we waited until players were ten yards for all quick free kicks we'd be there all day. You've got to see why the ref has given the goal Les?
