Obviously Gourcuff plays the through ball Arshavin runs onto it and taps it in.

How is this ever a dubious goal though?

It's annoying though now because it will always be known as a controversial win

Can anyone explain how it is offside though?

Depends if the ball was played at that exact moment, plus the comentator only askes if it was dubious, if they're manager disagrees, then so be it, a win is a win

The ball was played at that moment.

I always thought that when a commentators questions whether a goal is dubious or not means it is dubious

Take it with a pinch of salt ArsenalFan7, view it simply as the commentator's opinion. Quite often they do this in real life, only to realise that it was a perfectly good goal after seeing the replay. :)
