He's the man in charge and just as guilty as the liner.

Subjective, he’d like all refs depend on either Lino to advise, if they flag he whistles, if they don’t he won’t.

He doesn't ultimately make the offside decisions though does he?

He clearly spoke to the Lino and presumably asked him, 1. Did the player touch it and was Williams offside?

Evidently the lino didn't think so to 1 or both and so the ref has to go by his word (which was wrong).

Can't blame the ref here, he's been let down by his staff.

Still doesn't stop him apologising for an inept dickhead on the line.  Everyone in the ground apparently saw it, why couldn't he ?.

The ref was well placed to see the diversion of the ball to Williams, he shuold have asked the Linesman if the play was offside in that situation.  There are only two reasons the linesman could have for not giving it - either he wasn't looking, or he thought the ball went straight to the player from the first pass.  If it's the first, he should never be allowed to officiate again and should say as much himself.  If it is the latter, he needs the ref to tell him there was a touch, in which case the Ref is at fault.  They talked, so they both can take the fault, plus they originally stood by their decision.  Shocking officiating either way.  Fr all it's faults, this is why we ended up with VAR, because people cannot be trusted to focus for 90 minutes.

Also the 4th official should have seen it given his proximity to Wellens who clearly did.
I often think the 4th official’s only role apart from dealing with substitutions is to wind up the benches and take abuse from coaches. They should be proactive in this type of situation where the change in trajectory of the ball made it obvious the player had touched it.
