That offside rule comment shows that he doesnt quite get it. It is there so the striker almost HAS to always beat the defence at the point of a pass, through ball, cross etc.
You misunderstood me then.
If player A has the ball, and player B just outruns the defense and isn't even with the second to last defender, by the rules, he fucked up.
What's the point of that entire rule, when they could just make it no standing in "____" for "____" amount of seconds?
"It doesn't matter if Team B's striker is over this line when he receives the ball. The moment to look for is the moment the midfielder passes the ball, which will trigger an offside if the striker is over the last defender line."
You're telling me that's not some unnecessary bullshit?
