As the football is over until the world cup and no-one has an idea what's really going on with transfers how about a different question.

What 1 or 2 rules would you change/ introduce to improve football?

Only proviso is it must be able to be implemented at all levels, and expensive equipment (so no VAR! )

Personally I'd allow physios on to treat players and subs to be made while play continues. These would both stop the time wasting at the end of games, and in the case of subs maybe managers would use them to try to win the game rather than waste 30 seconds of the last minute.

Over to you guys.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree totally. There's no reason why, with a keeping an eye on things, there can't be rolling subs (up to the 3 limit obviously) . If they can do it in a breakneck sport like ice hockey, there no reason why they can't do it in football.

No more replays and no extra time, go straight to penalties and matches really should end on the day they take place.
Stiffer penalties on diving, playacting etc, it's ruining the game. Maybe bigger club fine and longer suspensions.

{Ed004's Note - Either stop the clock when there is a break in play or allow physios to treat players as the game is continuing on. If ref deems it serious play can be stopped}

Not thought about it too hard, but:

1 - Stop clock when ball isn't in play, which would cut out all time wasting.
2 - Introduce an Orange Card - 10 minute sin-bin. There are too many cases where an incident deserves more than a yellow but less than a red. I especially hate professional fouls when a player is away and the guy pulls their shirt or trips them taking the practically meaningless yellow. I also hate it when a player is on a yellow and miss-times something accidentally in a meaningless position, to then be sent off, when a 10-min sin bin would be more than enough punishment - and doesn't kill the game as a spectacle.

No shaking hands hugging and kissing in the tunnel before a game.

Sin bins/ orange cards.
Physio on pitch whilst game carries on.
Stop the clock if injury is deemed serious.
Subs to cone on whilst play continues.
Automatic red card for dissent.
Post match reviews with cards handed out for diving.

{Ed002's Note - Those of you within easy reach of London should perhaps go and watch some of the ConIFA Football World Cup games and see how they get on with the green card that will be shown for dissent or diving. It means that player has to be substituted right away. The pick of the group stage games will be Northern Cyprus Vs Abkhazia on June 3 Queen Elizabeth II Stadium, Enfield.}

Quite like the rolling subs idea, works in other sports. Also totally agree, no need to stop the game for a substitution except for an injury.

30 May 2018 16:52:13
Give obstruction when players are shielding the ball until it goes out of play. If they haven't touched the ball they are not in possession and therefore are obstructing others from getting the ball.

{Ed007's Note - That does my nut in!}

Stop the clock when the ball goes dead, to stop time wasting.

Then I would do away with traditional penalties which if taken correctly is scientifically proven to be unable to be saved. And instead introduce something similar to the hockey penalties. With the player starting off on the halfway line one on one with the keeper and given a time limit of 30-45 seconds to score. I think its a fairer and potentially more climatic way to settle it.

30 May 2018 17:03:40
Beast - How about automatic penalty for professional fouls no matter where it occurs, and none/ yellow/ red card according to the type of foul? So for example the Solksjaer/ Shearer incident (as much as I love Ole for it) would be a penalty and yellow card.

30 May 2018 17:07:19
Get rid of the official behind the goals cause he might as well be at home watching television.

30 May 2018 17:15:57
Instead of a yellow card if a keeper is time wasting, John O’Shea has to play in goal for 15 min.
If a British player dives, they have to give up their citizenship to conform to the media narrative.
If players spit on the pitch, the ref needs to call their mother and they must tell her what they’ve done.

No crying like big girls when you lose.

30 May 2018 17:37:27
Lol danny and Tony 😂 it's been funny as f**k on here last couple of days.

30 May 2018 19:02:01
give penalties for fouls in the box at set plays to stop all the manhandling that goes on. Not a rule change just referees growing a pair and applying the rules as they stand.

30 May 2018 20:50:59
Put a cap on players wages, starting off at a set wage, then for every year your at a club your wage goes up, No player to earn more 100,000 a week. Agents should be only allowed a set percentage of a transfer fee.
The money in football needs a good look at, it's crazy the way it's going, ruining the game.

{Ed025's Note - im with you leahy..

I played in a game where the ref stopped their watch at every break (throw in, corner, the lot) . It was their first game reffing and I don't think they really knew as much as they needed to know to be reffing a game of football. Anyway we only found out after the match that we played about 70 minutes a half. So if that rule was introduced to stop time wasting you would see the end of 45 minute halves.

In-play subs is a great idea, I'm also a fan of the orange card for a 10 minute sin bin, and a good shout about obstruction if the shielding player hasn't touched the ball.

All of the above should result in more goals and less cheating.
