    I especially like the one for substitutions. So I guess the trend will now be to standing in the centre circle before been subbed.

    The one for handballs is also good, I remember back in 2011, my other half dragged me to a Swans game during Christmas against QPR and there was this debate if Danny Graham deliberately or not handled the ball when he scored.

    At the end of the day its FOOTball, and this rule ensures that even more, while easily solving debates like the one I mentioned.

    Why can't you touch the goalposts before a penalty? What a bizarre rule :laugh:

    I guess you can affect the dimensions of the goal by doing it. How many times have you seen a goalie pull down on the crossbar and it bounce up and down? I’ve always thought they shouldn’t be allowed to do it.

    I’m confused by the handball change.

    The sub one is a good change.

    Wtf? You seriously think that alters the dimension of the goal by the time the kick is taken? It's about putting the player off, nothing else. It's a good change.

    Football is literally decided on millimetres, look at goal line technology. It's not impossible to suggest the crossbar could still be moving by the time the penalty is taken :shrug

    I like the subs rule. It doesn’t bother me if goalkeepers touch the crossbar or not, it adds to a psychological battle between the kicker and keeper. They’ll just scream instead now.

    About the dropball, I wish they’d say automatic booking if someone tried to take advantage of it. I remember Harry Kane doing it this season.

    It’s a shame that the ‘get your two strongest players to push the crossbar up at corners’ routine is dead and buried before it even got a chance. :(

    You realise that the bar might be moving upwards by the time it's taken as well?

    Ummm no...

    Kane kicked it back to Kepa. For some reason Luiz decided to intercept it, at which point the ball is back in play. Kane then closed him down. Had Luiz let the ball go where Kane was kicking it, obviously he wouldn't have got closed down.

    On the rule changes.

    Sub rule - excellent.

    Free kick rule - pointless. Especially their reasoning that is tactically pointless and disrupts the image of the game? It's not tactically pointless at all and isn't unsporting either?

    Drop ball - don't get it. Pointless.

    Handball - good on paper but remains equally as subjective so could cause more controversy, especially with VAR.

    Yes. The dimensions of the goal should not be altered by the players in any way so I'm all for it.

    Handball is subjective, every time. The rule was fine before but people got caught up on the wording rather than what it allows practically. They should just say every handball is down to the ref's discretion.

    So the 'keeper is hoping that the bar swings in just the right manner to narrow the goal by a fraction in a an even smaller fraction of a second?

    No, I think the keeper does it to put off the player taking the penalty. I don't think keepers are doing it to momentarily make the goal smaller :laugh:

    However, that is what happens. And in my opinion, it shouldn't be allowed to happen :shrug

    The free kick one might bring about some interesting routines.

    Probably not. Refs don't care about teams tactically hacking out your best players unless you're Aston Villa down there.
