    In your own words, how would you define the "offside position" in association football?

    It's basically when there is no opposition players between the attacker and the opposition goalkeeper when the ball is passed to him (in the oppositions half of the pitch.)  Well that is my understanding anyway. Hope this is of help.

    You can receive the ball behind the opposition's defence when it's played, but need to be infront of them before the ball is passed through. So basically, if you're behind the opposition defence when the ball is played through, you're offside.
