Was a clever idea but like somone said above the ball never came out of the corner so therefor the corner asnt been took in my opinion as in the rules i think the ball has to leave the corner before somone else can touch it this is the same for goal kicks the ball as to leave the area before a player can touch it so i agree with the ref and linesman. But...;

If the ball DOES come out of the corner then its ok so i do think they will try it again so yes we have to watch out for this.

Decent idea my mate was telling me about a team in league one i cant remember who it was now but they do a circle around the 6 yard box and all burst out into different positions, anyone know who it is?

I don't think it has to leave the corner area semi circle for it to class as a corner. Think of a penalty, as long as its touched then it counts. The circle is just to show the area it has to be taken in.

Unsporting though i still think. If United scored like that i'd have little complaints though!
