The offside is not in this part of the play. There is no offside in the above clip.
The offside that was called, was one or two passes previous, where the Shrew winger comes back from an offside position. It was close, but offside was correct.
Right. Thanks for that. It doesn't help when you're not shown the whole picture. The VAR sequence shown on the beeb and LFCTV is as I've posted; and the LFCTV commentators said it was Whalley, who was offside.For some reason the wrong VAR sequence keeps popping up. I watched the FULL VAR sequence on ESPN+ this morning, and the lines were clearly drawn for the two passes previously where the Shrews guy attempts to come back from an offside position but fails to get back before the ball is kicked to him. VAR will always check the entire sequence of play upon initial review. That is the issue, many media outlets are only putting the initial VAR review which is ALWAYS a full length view of the play prior to going to the line drawing escapade. They are just trying to make something fit a narrative that sells clicks.
So it was actually the Shrews number 3, Golbourne, playing the ball after coming back from an offside position.
