Probably one for Pinner...
I was chatting with a friend over the weekend about Man City's 9-0 win over Burton. Jesus scored in the first half (3rd goal) where, in my opinion, he was about 8 yards offside. The ball was chipped over the defence to Gundogan who squared it first time to Jesus who then scored. Gundogan wasn't offside and neither was Jesus when Gundogan passed to him but I can't see how Jesus hasn't gained an advantage from being in an offside position when the initial chip was played.
As far as I know there isn't a 2nd phase of play law, and even if there was then I can't see how one pass later can be a 2nd phase. Is it part of laws that the ball has to go directly to the player for them to be offside?
Can anyone explain or has the offside law been so tinkered with that nothing is clear any more?

For those who went today, what are your thoughts on our last minute free kick.
I understand that a draw is a good result and we didn't want to concede a breakaway goal but I was a little disappointed that we didn't try and put in the box or even have a long range shot. We could have put a couple of people in the box at least. Instead we just went for the corner.
What would you have done?
