Cricketfield does tend to struggle with numbers.

factual decisions such as offsides, and the issue of whether a player is inside or outside the penalty area, are not subject to the "clear and obvious" test

Clear and obvious doesn't apply to offsides. It was an excellent goal, but he was offside. Can't really complain, especially after the first goal, when it shouldn't have been a corner.
