Happy New Year, Kitties!

Here we are in 2005. I have a birthday this month, I’m in a new life in a new country, (well, the country is new to me- I’m pretty sure the UK has been around awhile. *wink*), and once again, I’ve proven to myself that as much as I loathe the process- a brazillian is so worth it.

Now I’m off to take advantage of the great light outside today, heading off to Henley to take some scenery in. I’ll share some photos when I get back. Kev has pointed me to a Photoblog application that just might be what I’ve been looking for…

  1. erm… uh…ok… here goes: (mind you, I have never watched soccer/football to the point of true understanding of it’s complexities, but here’s what I’ve picked up on)

    Offside Rule and Offside Trap in Football(Soccer) Explained
    It is not an offence in itself to be in an offside position.
    A player is in an offside position if:
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ he is nearer to his opponents’ goal line than both the ball and the second last opponent
    A player is not in an offside position if:
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ he is in his own half of the field of play
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ he is level with the second last opponent
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ he is level with the last two opponents
    Commiting an Offside Offence
    A player in an offside position is only penalised if, at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of his team, he is, in the opinion of the referee, involved in active play by:
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ interfering with play
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ interfering with an opponent
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ gaining an advantage by being in that position
    No Offence
    There is no offside offence if a player receives the ball directly from:
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ a goal kick
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ a throw-in
    ‚Äö?Ѭ¢ a corner kick
    For any offside offence, the referee awards an indirect free kick to the opposing team to be taken from the place where the infringement occurred.

    Hope that helps, nellus.
