Changes to Football Laws of the game

Recommended Posts

 

Free kicks: No attacking players in wall

"There is no legitimate tactical justification for attackers to be in the ‘wall’ and their presence is against the ‘spirit of the game’ and often damages the image of the game."

 

Don't get this one - the tactical justification is to peel away at the last moment and let a free kick through a 'gap' in the wall, or lift your feet up and let the shot through. Damaging the image of the game? Going a bit too far  I think.

I had to toil over that one myself. Definitely don't see how it damages the image of the game but I can understand the against the "spirit of the game" bit. The only reason they go into a wall is to jostle with the defenders and disrupt the defence to ultimately, like you said, create gaps. I suppose in cricket terms, it's not cricket. Will be interesting to see new tactics being adopted by both defenders and attackers.

 

Not thought it through properly but the one thing I don't understand how they will implement, is how they are going constitute when a wall has been formed. i.e. when a ball is too far out to have a shot at goal, the free kick taker pumps it into or around the box. Usually from that distance a wall isn't officially formed but the defenders man mark or zonal mark. If 3 defenders are stood together has a wall been formed? Will the captain of the defending team have to call to the ref 'wall"?

I wouldn't like to be an away player who's been substituted at Millwall and walking halfway round the pitch.

Maybe they can sprout wings and fly off the pitch. Much ado about very little IMO. The ref is to add time anyhow. Now the ref can add a little less?

Will it be like previous law changes that the players give a damn good ignoring to and the ref gets criticised for ruining the game by penalising them?

My new rule: Taken from basketball where playing the ball back across the centre line is penalised.

I would give a little more leeway and allow a defender in the back half one kick to get it back into the forward half.(if played back by a teammate from the front half)

It is rather boring to see defenders constantly kicking it backwards, often as a time-wasting tactic.

Don't see anything in the new rules for these actions to be more severely punished.

Simple.  If the player asks for a card to be shown then show it to him!

Yep, some other rules could be implemented instead of these petty ones.

 

ONLY the captain and the player involved should talk to the ref. Other players stay 10 yards/metres away and keep gobs shut.

 

Throw-ins taken within say 2 metres of where the ball went out.

 

Scrap the off-side rule. Only brought in to prevent forwards staying on the goal line waiting for a pass. Why not?

 

Ban commentators from ANY statistics of previous matches, or say more than 5/10 years previously!

In my opinion the offside rule should give leeway to the attacker, as such if any part of the attacker is in line with the last defender when the ball is played, not offside. Now video checks are in use, more easily enforced.

"That hasn't changed with the latest update to the rules, which dictate that the shot-stopper must not be moving or touching the goalposts."

 

Not be touching the goal posts?? Eh?

To me the worst aspect of the modern game is the never ending gamesmanship and downright cheating.

Players falling or diving to the ground often with the most minimal of contact, in fact the "conning" of the referee.

Also players pleading with the referee to give opposing players red or yellow cards.

Don't see anything in the new rules for these actions to be more severely punished.

Totally agree and how could they not address the most annoying aspect . IMO a player who has gone to ground and writhes and screams with apparent pain should be removed from the field to be examined for injuries to ensure he is fit to continue . Further more where there is var or TV coverage and the ref; misses an important  incident both tapes should be used to determine the outcome . To me it is important to show the youngsters how the game should be played and wipe out the cheating which can be taken to all aspects of how they lead their lives  .

Not only that but on a personal point when I have had a wager on a game and lose because of a wrong decision or missed incident that is also an injustice .

That would be my new rule too. Once passed the middle line , you cant go back.

Also about time, as in other sports they stop playing time. SO when the ball isnt on the move, stop time and start when ball is running again. Then all the stupid jokes on delaying time not to play, are over and you dont need to add on later some time.

IF you notice, a player is hurt and need assistance, you kick out the ball at nearest point.

Then when starting again , that team gets the ball back, instantly with a throw in.

The keeper holding one foot on the line is ridiculous, dont agree with that one. He must be able to move on his line. The kicker is also free to move.

That's one of the changes mentioned above in the Dropped Ball section. The team who last touched it get possession. What they then do with it i.e. keep possession or pass back to the opposition goalie, I'm not sure
