Many linos appear to think their only function is to flag for offside.

Yeah, but the ref goes on his advice wherever possible. We've not really had to berate a liner in a long while, but good heavens he was poor.

Some refs remove almost any responsibility from their assistants and instruct them to 'go with my decision'. These tend to be the arrogant ones. See Graham Poll for details. The more mature refs tell the assistant to 'referee your quarter' [of the pitch].
You can usually tell in the first few minutes which type they are. Just watch the assistant on the first throw-in decision and see if he waits for the ref before making a decision.

It appals me when linos don't flag for throws until after the ref has signalled. It's one of those "You've got one job.." situations. I expect they do it so that the refs don't look like they are over-ruling them too much but they have to be adults about it.

Well for those of us who witnessed the joke that was the referee at Hungerford... here he is as a linesman http://talksport.com/football/video-hilarious-assistant-referee-fail-during-peterboroughs-clash-southend-160118181595

I'm sure you've seen before, but worth remembering his ability.
