Not Argyle related but this is my favourite disallowed goal for many reasons.

We went mad that day, and it wasn't long after that the idiot known as 'Topsy' was sacked.
That's the one that immediately sprang to my mind. It was actually against Port Vale and the last Home match of the 74/75 season. Rafferty ran with the ball from his own half beating about 6 players as you say and smashed the ball into the roof of the net down at the Barn Park end. We were all astounded when Turvey disallowed it for an offside. He also sent off Colin Randell that day just prior to John Delve equalising for Argyle to give us a 1-1 draw. It was one of the most inept displays of referring I have seen at Home Park and believe me I have seen a few. Alan 'Topsy' Turvey was subsequently sacked by the League.
If we had won that day we would probably be promoted as Champions as opposed to runners up to Blackburn.
