I've always had a soft spot for Fiorentina. What a shame.

Sorry, I didn't see the match, but what is that picture supposed to show? It cannot be proof of offsides as far as I can see. Who delivered the ball? For that matter, where is the ball?

It was the best picture I could find, but whoever made this essentially cut out Klose where he was when the ball was struck and inserted him where he would be if he was onside. The ball is being struck by the other player with his head. A simple line would have worked just as well, but here we are. This video (at 0:13) has the line....

Isn't it on-sides if the ball is struck behind the defender in the first place. That is, the header actually occurs between the last defender and the goal. So no off-sides, correct?

(At least, that's how it looks to me.)

the header you see being struck is actually the pass to klose who headed in from the white rectangle...

Well, yeah. Isn't that the pass that is claimed to be to Klose in an offsides position? Klose is offsides because he's between the last defender and the keeper. But the pass comes from another player also between the last defender and the keeper. so no offsides?

No, the teammate playing the ball would have to be forward of the receiving player (Klose) for it not to be offside in this case.

Bendtner leading Arsenal past Porto right now-- 2 : 0. Looks like he might be better than Ibrahimovic after all!
