The minute the referee over-ruled the linesman, on Saturday, there was the potential for mayhem!

If Huddlestone`s deflected shot had of deflected off William Gallas then we`d, probably, still have our unbeaten Premier League run intact. The fact he flung his foot at it and missed seems to deem that he wasn`t offside even though he was clearly obstructing the view that Mark Schwarzer had.

Naturally Mark Hughes wanted an explanation as t why the decision had been reversed and somebody of a more fiery nature could well have found themselves in hot water with the FA this morning.

All things considering though, Hughes showed a great deal of restraint and it was something, along with the reason why, he discussed with the media afterwards, explaining,

“I didn`t go in an aggressive manner. I just gave my view and very quickly he said come and see me so I just walked away.”

“There is no point in getting yourself in any trouble when really whatever I say and whatever he says won`t make any difference.”

“I don`t think I was in his face. I was about 15 yards away – and maybe that was a good thing.”


Anyone care to start us off with a list of managers that might not have shown such restraint!

  • Water under the bridge. I recall us scoring two offside goals versus Burnley last season. These things happen, though I must admit that we’ve had our fair share of bad luck so far this season. Hopefully, it’ll turn soon enough.
