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.

Not doubting you're correct but it does surprise me how rarely we end up kicking towards the North Stand in the second half.

Either we're very good at winning the toss or opposition teams don't believe we achieve an advantage by kicking towards the SS. Come to think of it, it seems rare for the two teams to ever change ends at any game so, perhaps it's not such an advantage after all.

If I was a captain of the away team I think I'd always change just to annoy/disrupt the home team.

Numerous new rules set by the IFAB will be introduced next season. Below is a basic 

Handball

  • Handball given even if accidental when:
    • the ball goes into the goal
    • player gains control/possession and then scores or creates a goal scoring opportunity
    • player makes their body unnaturally bigger
    • touches hand above their shoulder

Has Kenny Burns changed his name by deed poll to "handball" yet?

 

🤣

A very quick google seems to hint at you being 100% correct, sir!

Having played football every single day (although not always to the rules!) between 1972 and 1980, and then weekly for a few years after that (always to the rules!) I'm a little embarrassed to admit that either:

A/ I did not not know that, or

B/  I did know it, but had forgotten!

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.

So why do they make them put a penalty on the penalty spot and not breaking the plane of the line?

Thought I had read somewhere that they were going to outlaw rebounds on penalties doesn’t seem to be on that list though so probably imagined it.

Nice vague handball rule there. If you have your arms by your side but with a gap just small enough for a football to fit through then that's the biggest target you can make. That would be a bigger target than holding your hands above your head. 

What does 'making your body bigger' mean?

Back on penalties

we've been awarded 1 this season.

so therefore we must have been fouled in the box just once in 37 games, and never at home! 😀 👍

 

I noticed that handball no longer counted when we played sheffield united at home.

I hope I’m correct, I’m a referee! 

Done many a toss in my time...

Thank goodness that the IFAB exist, I mean football has really struggled as a spectator sport for the last 140 years and I'm not sure it would survive without the brilliantly though out rule changes.

I'm not against rule changes, if they are significantly enhancing the game but they very rarely do.

In the last 30 years the only changed they've made that has actually improved the game was changing the back pass rule.

I mean who really wants to see players get a yellow card for celebrating with the fans or taking their shirts off? Who genuinely care?!

In my opinion there are 3 things in the game that need addressing right now and I think they are easily sorted. 

1 - Diving - 3 match ban

2 - Wrestling at corners - penalty whether the ball is in play or not

3 - Time wasting - yellow card first time, not 20th time after showing the player your watch and waving your hands at them
