Calleri was clearly onside Mr Moyes

moyesSunderland manager David Moyes moaned and groaned over the weekend that Calleri was in  an offside position in his opinion when the 94th minute goal was scored and his team were unlucky to lose at the London Stadium.

Moyes who has lost seven games on the trot told reporters: “The match official thinks it’s onside, I definitely think it’s offside. You could tell by his reaction, he walked towards the linesman, so he was aware there was a problem with it.”

Slaven Bilic disagreed with Moyes in his post match press interviews saying: “There was no offside, It is very difficult for referees. If you freeze the picture, Calleri’s boots are in a position that is not offside.”

Darren Lewis claims in the Daily Mirror that Moyes faces a possible FA charge after confronting referee Bobby Madley about his decision to award the goal. If the referee decides to include the alleged confrontation in his report Moyes could be in hot water.

Below is a freeze frame at the exact moment Winston Reid kicked the ball, Kouyate is offside but not inferring with play, however, Calleri is clearly onside.

  1. He is at his wit’s end… but I understand, bad situation… Sunderland need the help of the , Genius of Dudley… Sam is like Mr Wolf in Pulp Fiction, he’s a problem-solver… lool 😉

  2. If Moyes wants to watch a replay,how about his defenders wrestling attributes, first Oggers is caught with a half nelson,then Winnie is caught with a forearm smash.To add insult to injury the ref was bang on top of both incidents. Now watch carefully Mr.Moyes.COYI

  3. We will have to change Winston’s surname to Cruyff after his control before shooting, I didn’t notice it so much when I was in the stadium but watched a replay on MOTD2 last night and realise what a good goal it was COYI !!! As for the Sunderland manager I guess you could say he was not aMOYESed haha

  4. Yes kouyate not interfering with play I agree. He is just interfering with their player. Ha ha. Strangely ironic that at Sunderland the talk is of allardyce replacing moyes when at West Ham the talk was of moyes replacing allardyce.
