Free Kicks

  • Attackers not allowed within 1m of the wall (if made up of 3 or more defenders)
  • Ball doesn't need to leave defensive penalty area for ball to be 'in play' (same for goal kicks)
  • YC/RC can be delayed if a team wants to take a quick free-kick

    • accidentally playing the ball onto the hand
    • player strikes the ball towards the hand from close range

Penalties

  • Penalty taker can have quick medical treatment before taking the penalty
  • Penalty cannot be taken if the GK is touching the posts, the net or either are still moving

I like some of these.

The sub leaving the pitch at the nearest point is good for elimination of time wasting, but I feel the ref will pull the “reason of safety” clause as the poor sod could be made to walk half the perimeter of an away pitch. Much to the amusement of the possible winning home support.

If the ref does allow a dug out swap the rules must make the player run off, not walk slowly clapping to the fans and shaking hands etc.

Imagine getting a booking for illegal goal celebration, only for it (the goal) to be wiped out!  Doh!

Re handball for "hand above shoulder", I wonder whether that refers to vertically higher, or higher in relation to the body (I'm thinking outstretched arms from a prone/horizontal body!)

I like the banning of attackers from a wall of three or more defenders.  Far too much wrestling going on these days!

Agree that an away sub having to walk around the pitch is just asking for trouble... of Cantona proportions!

I thought the toss winner choosing kick off or direction of play had always been the case?

Why don’t they make it a new rule that the corner flag painted arcs can be extended by about 3 inches.  Drives me bloody mad how many kicks are taken just outside the current allotted area.

Come on, you know it’s the whole of the ball and not the bottom of it don’t you? 🤓

How about the ball must be placed inside the line for a corner kick

I agree with both of you. What I don't understand is why they need to place the ball three inches closer as if it is more likely to reach it's desired destination, and still they hit the first man!

I think you are seriously discounting evolution. Back in the late 1900s a footballer’s body was such that they were perfectly capable of swinging their leg to take a corner without kicking the flag. Footballers are now much more muscle toned, albeit looser limbed. It seems it is impossible for them to not go arse over tit without that extra 3 inches of gained space.

p.s. There are still a small few capable of hitting the ball out of the arc, but they will be the poor mites who quickly take a short corner.

I don't have an issue with any of those changes, on the face of it.

Think they all make sense.

Be interesting if the GK's do ever have any part of a foot on the line, hard to imagine they wont all continue to jump forward.

Doesn't that go against one of the important principles of the game - that the whole of the ball should be over the line? As long as part of the ball breaks the plane of the line, it is in.

Me too - can anyone confirm where we've got it wrong?

Ha - yeah. I guess this one has VAR in mind, where we will see a lot more goals scored, celebrated and then disallowed

An interesting one - I wonder if we'll see any goalies flaunt this one by deliberately messing up a clearance and then picking it up? I can't say I ever remember this situation arising though.

Surprised there are no changes regarding offside  - I'd like to see it changed so that if the ball doesn't leave your half and the attacker runs back into his own half to collect the ball, then it can't be offside. It always seems pointless when refs have to gove offside in that situation

I can.

The winner of the toss chooses ends.

The loser of the toss always kicks off.

This is because choosing an ends is deemed a bigger advantage than kicking off.
