What about a variation of the 10 yard rule.... the attacking team can choose if they want to move the ball up to 10 yards, forwards or backwards. Avoids the defending team abusing the rule, and gives the attacking team a chance at goal from a more optimal position.
Could work but I think it would also slow the game down. If this is to stop the fouling team wasting time by haranguing the ref, we probably don't need to wait for the fouled team to decide what to do. :hehe:

Defenders shielding out for a goal kick. Hate it.

Isn't that rule in place now?
The rule is if you’re genuinely going for the ball :hehe: basically of you get close enough and you play fot s top team you should be fine

I cant understand how you could get booked for breaking someone’s leg and sent iff for pulling someone’s shirt or gently placing your hand in a players shoulder

Get rid of the off side rule.
Imagine how bad football would be. There's problems with the offside rule, the stupid milimetre line they've been drawing in the Premier League this season for one, but it's there for a very good reason.

I would make referees review the games after they have finished and book players retrospectively for all dives. If you weren't touched you weren't fouled unless you're on a fast run down the wing and had to jump out of the way to stop your legs being broken.
I've been advocating this for years and would use it for serious foul play too. Refs are full-time now and wouldn't be undermined if revising their own games. Could consult with senior refs or former refs if required.

The problem is the refs in this country are crap, they can't even be bothered to go and look at a replay for 30 seconds

There's a reason no English refs went to the last World Cup, f**king shit.

Goalkeeper protection is outrageous there's no longer any point in challenging for the ball in the six yard box, prime examples have been seen this season against Wigan and Brentford

If a player tackles someone in box and it's a red card and penalty, said player will only get the red card IF the penalty is scored

Any teams with Cardiff City in their name receive a 5 goal head start.

Any team that play in white where the majority of fans parents are brother and sister give the opposition a 5 goal head start.

I think these new rules are very fair

When defenders shield the ball out for a throw in/goal kick, they haven’t touched the ball so it’s obstruction

Get rid of VAR

Red card for diving

Yeah, they also said VAR 'could' work. Now look at us!

The turning a blind eye to grabbing hold of players in the area. It's not sodding aussie rules. If it were me, I'd tie their bloody arms to their sides if they get seen doing it
Automatic yellow card for holding a player's shirt anywhere on the pitch. It would disruptive to the flow of the game for a while, but eventually the coaches would get the message that it is not in the football rule book.

If I was a lino and a player was attempting to place the ball for a corner so that just a single blade of painted grass on the outside of the quarter circle was touching the ball i'd raise my flag and tell the ref the player had called him a c**t.

Dinosaurs like me were against var from the start.
VAR works perfectly well in other sports.

Why the refs over here don't use the pitchside monitors as they did in the trials and during WC2018 is astonishing.
