    Disagree on that. You basically only go in the wall to obstruct the defenders. So tactically it is unsporting. I'm not sure its really to the defending teams benefit though as it means more bodies outside the wall left unmarked.
    It'll stop the barging and pushing you get at free kicks in the wall and let them just get on with playing rather than being twats.

    Don't think that's the case really. Those players by the wall will be unmarked anyway. Some players are clever at standing behind the wall and spinning round totally unmarked alive for a rebound. Kane is a master at it.







    For what it's worth, something like these ones are probably still going to be allowed anyway, as he isn't disrupting the wall at any time.

    Am sure i read that for penalty kicks there will not be rebounds anymore. So if the ball hits the frame of the goal or the keeper saves it we won't have players coming in to either clear it or take a shot at goal.


    Just Googled it and apparently it was an idea but the law makers decided against it

    I heard about that too, it would have been daft though so I'm glad they decided not to enforce it.

    Fair play to the PL, they've done something good for once.

    Nice to have finally some clarity on things like handball.

    The timewasting one is decent as well. Nothing more annoying than watching a player snail-walk from one touchline to the other while the ref does f*ck all.

    most players will now walk to the centre spot and still slow walk so again it's pointless.

    It's halved the maximum distance they can make themselves away from leaving the pitch.

    Exactly. Not pointless at all.

    I do also wonder about the point of how time is managed, I often watch a 45 mins half, where I know is in excess of 10 mins stoppage and then see 1 min pop up (usually first half is one min). Someone pointed out on average the ball is in play 30 mins per half yet we dont see 15 mins added on. Players know this hence timewaste. They know it all wont get added on.

    I'd be in favour of introducing 30 minute halves where the clock stops every time the ball is out of play. I don't think it would make much difference in terms of actual gameplay.
