    – A lot of people complain about the offside rule being terrible, but I think it's perfectly fine because it does what it's supposed to do. I think the misinterpretation of the rule makes it bad, especially from referees and linesmen who clearly should know better!
    – I’m aware that it isn’t really a ‘rule change’ rather than an amendment/clarification from FIFA as to when an opponent makes a play for the ball.
    – In English parlance, the second-to-last opponent is sometimes referred to as the ‘last defender’ (as the goalkeeper isn’t classed as a defender). This difference in terminology signifies exactly the same thing and is not incorrect.

    The rule 11 is the epitome of "I can explain it to you, but I can't make you understand it"

    Here's one that I hope you can confirm my decisions when running the line for my son's, and daughter's teams, without me drawing it.

    The defence was high up the pitch in their own half, and the opposition had a player (P1) between the last defender and keeper (At this point I judge the opposition in an offside position, but not interfering in play). The ball was in the opposition's half, and an opposition player (P2) passed the ball to another player (P3) running in the defending team's half, but in front of the defence – So P3 was in an onside position when the ball was played, P1 was still in an offside position at this point. P3 ran with the ball towards goal and P1 ran toward goal also. P3 kicked the ball towards the goal around the 18 yard line and the keeper parried the shot which landed at the P1, who then scored.

    I raised my flag for offside, as P1 was in an offside position when the ball was played, and took advantage from the rebound. If Ref agreed, and goal disallowed.

    Was the ref and I right?

  4. MR W3IRD says

    Thanks man ♥️

  5. Vivechana Chauhan says

    Very well explained

  6. ilRegulator says

    5:27 I like how the attacker just pushes the defender towards the goal to kill the offside trap. I also like how you say "when done badly…." and then use Arsenal as an example

  7. Ian Sanchez says

    Do the rules of rounders

  8. SING VIRII says

    greatly explained. appreciated

  9. Zwe Zar Ni Aung says

    Where is player behind keeper is offside?

  10. Josie Lindström says

    You say allowing players to hang around the opposing goalkeeper would make for a boring game.
    Have you ever watched a professional lacrosse game, which has no offside rule at all? A typical score is 13-11 – nothing at all boring about that.

  11. Bayek says

    I was a centre back and this rule is great for the game 'cause the whole field is large. Imagine strikers just waiting on the goal lol that's just street basketball sht right there. Defenders and Strikers would always just play longball and midfielders would just be sitting in the middle. Plus offside traps are great but very risky I usually call it when the other team's strikers don't know how to predict. If you're a striker you should always have a great chemistry with your team and always give them the best passing opportunities for you. Make good use of follow throughs and remember that offside is based on when the ball is struck not when it is received. Practice timing and stay close to the last defender. Just a nice follow through or cross to you will be an easy goal

  12. nborr258 says

    Ngl this is still convoluted as all hell. Offsides should be offsides

  13. Pinomäki says

    Actually you can be offside on your own half IF

    1. All the opponents are in your half
    2. When the pass is made you were in the opponents half
    3. U touch the ball on your side of the field

    That would be offside on your own half

  14. NASCARFan24Dude says

    2:10 clip kinda threw me off a bit but i understand it alot more now, I see that the rule is to kinda make it more sportsmanlike/fair and to keep the score down.

  15. MAD MADDY says

    Thx a lot this helped I am going into 9 aside and offside but cuz lockdown we have to watch video as my dad( the coach) cant teach us

  16. Pan Lis says

    I know the rule from Fifa because most people suck at explaining this rule and usually do it in a really confusing way which is why I was so suprised when I got it because the concept is super simple

  17. Sabyasachi Mukherjee says

    The best video on YouTube explaining the offside rule. Found this really helpful!

  18. 666kingdrummer says

    I can't believe i'm saying this, but the offside rule in Hockey actually makes more sense. I didn't think it was possible for me to dislike soccer even more.

  19. Thomas Jakob says

    Good video. I think the best and easiest way to demonstrate offside is just showing an extreme example. Like a player being extremely offside so that it's 100% obvious.

  20. James FitzGerald says

    i already know this why am i watching it?

  21. Gojira Beaver says

    Nihn explains VAR

  22. Joseph Garcia says

    2:22 is a rather controversial call, since that disallowed goal kept Atlanta United's 1 point lead in tact in the semi finals (thanks VAR). Not that I'm complaining since we would go on to win the championship, go ATL!!

  23. ⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ says

    I find it hard to explain offside to people who don't understand. It's a very simple rule that's hard to explain

  24. Lee McDonald says

    Sheesh, I have a hard time distinguishing offsides, encroachment and neutral zone infraction in American football.

  25. Ricco Rich says

    Nice I still hate the rule.. I mean they need to narrow the "imaginary" line or specify to the players near the ball
