Video: Another look at Sunday’s controversial non-goal, and why EJ’s goal didn’t count

Here is the latest episode of MLSsoccer.com’s Instant Replay, which covers a couple controversial plays from Sunday’s Sounders-Galaxy game at the end.

First, there was explanation as to why Eddie Johnson‘s first-half goal was called offside even if it touched LA’s Michael Stephens last.

Also, there was another look at Omar Gonzalez‘ non-goal, which clearly crossed the line before being cleared away by Osvaldo Alonso. Here is some reaction to that play:

“I know we were a bit fortunate on the one that got cleared off the line because apparently everybody is saying that was in. Maybe luck is turning for us a little bit.” — Sounders FC coach Sigi Schmid

“Obviously I don’t see it from where I am, but I was told it was about a yard over the line. For some reason, I think we should be able to see that one. We’re fortunate to get out of it, not using that as a major sticking point in the game.” — Galaxy coach Bruce Arena

“I saw it very clearly. I saw it as clearly as the linesman so for me it was a no-brainer. I was looking right across waiting for him to put his flag up and signal goal but for whatever reason he didn’t. I would suggest that goal-line technology would help but that one didn’t even need goal-line technology. It was real obvious. It’s unfortunate; we’ve had a little hard luck with some linesmen this year but hopefully gets better in the playoffs.” — Galaxy forward Landon Donovan
