    So what am I missing on that last goal that says it was not offside? Juninho was past the last defender and the ball was passed forward. Who can help?

  • Inigo Montoya

    Dunno. Looked close to me. Makeup call by the sideline ref who missed Keane being hacked down?

    Maybe Arena should be more concerned about his team’s comical defending in this “circus” setting than the expected bizzar referring which let Saunders stay in the game among other decisions. Great fun none the less, 3-rings forever!

  • Inigo Montoya

    Agreed, Studs. Both Metapan goals came from complete howler breakdowns. First, two G’s defenders backing off on the right sideline and letting the attacker run free. Second, Gaul unnecessarily dragging down an attacker in the box and allowing a PK. Playground stuff.
