Law 5 - The Referee 3/15/2018

Har Rymam of Athens, Attica Greece asks...

Redacted
I do not understand why you were surprized with the comment the AR allegedly made.
The specific stadium is one of the most difficult to referee. Diego Maradona said after he played there with Napoli, that he had never seen anything...

Law 12 - Fouls and Misconduct 3/15/2018

Salvador Flores of Indianapolis, IN United States asks...

For a deliberate pass back to the keeper and he picks it up, it is considered an IDFK. What happens if a defender dribbles the ball inside the penalty area, can the keeper pick it up if it was dribble?
For example, a player receives a ball from a...

Rob of Leicester , UK asks...

Law 11 - Offside 3/14/2018

AEK Fan Club of NY of New York, New York USA asks...

To answer your question about the AR's initial reaction, the word is that he told the referee 'it is offside, but how can you call it under these circumstances (meaning venue, timing etc)

The same referee allowed the other offside goal, in t...

Law 13 - Free Kicks 3/13/2018

Matt Lawrence of Dallas, TX United States asks...
