Can you be offside if you receive the ball directly from a goal kick. ?

Don't think so. Goal kicks, throw ins, corners (obviously) are fine. 

Surely you can be offside from a goal kick otherwise players would just stand on the opposition 18 yard box which is the very thing that the offside rule was brought in for? I haven't googled it but I would say it was offside.

Googled it now. @Laudrup1984 is correct. Seems mental to me for the reasons I stated above.

I had always thought it was offside. Growing up playing football I would always make sure the defender was behind me from a goal kick, but yeah I remember checking it and being surprised. To be honest I'm pretty sure i've seen refs give offside for it on many occasions, so not sure if it has changed over the years?

I don't think many actually know the rule. Certainly no one ever uses it to their advantage.

Keepers can hit the ball miles. If a striker just casually walks on 5,10, 15 yards some defenders will think their offside when they're not and all of a sudden the striker is in on goal.

I don’t understand why players don’t sprint toward the opposition goal at goalkicks then.... How many times have we seen a team pushed up the park with all players sitting deep.

Surprised it's taken this long for this kind of speculation!

 

That's next years champions league failure covered 

Seriously why would a club who has just had 2 months to sign somebody then when the window closes they are looking at players. More bluster and pish from the jap
