    There was discussion about this over on P&B a couple of weeks back. The goal that was chalked off for offside was because there was a Saints player standing near the line. There was a Rangers player on the goal line but the keeper had rushed out ahead of the Saints player just before it. In today's game that's never given as an offisde as the man on the line wasn't interfering with play but back then it was off. The linesman was tripping over himself with joy to be able to stick his flag up though, he's even giving it the wee strut. 

    For the other high-profile example of this is in the 1987 SC Final when (I think) Kevin Gallacher scored just before we did but Utd's Iain Ferguson was standing on the goal-line and the goal was disallowed. In modern football it would have stood and we'd have been a goal down in Extra Time.

    The penalty incident in that 1981 LC Semi was absolutely f**king criminal though.

    Nah, Redford was offside when receiving the ball on the left wing.

    Think it’s still called Mirage. Been to it a couple of times years ago. Nothing special. 

    @Eric Arthur Blair is the Indian restaurant guru on BAWA though. 

    Would love to know his current top 3. 

    Aye, it's still the Mirage.

    I haven't tried a sit-in at the "award winning" Indian in Moss St and in fact the only sit-in I've had in the last couple of years was at The Phat Bhuna and it was perfunctory at best.

    Indian Scene has always been excellent although the portions are quite small, The Multan was always consistently good as was the Koh-I-Noor although sadly they no longer do a buffet.
