    Had to smile at the kick up the arse rule, sounds good. Agree with your other suggestion as well.

    As long as the ball is under the control of the player shielding it then there is no problem, but if they are doing it and the ball is out of their reach then I agree they should be penalised...not sure a kick up the arse would be right though...maybe a shove in the back so that they go head first into the advertising hoardings....

    And I agree, diving punishments need to be tougher. It's the only way they will get it out of the game. Red card if the red spots it, 1 game ban if spotted on video after, maybe even a points deduction for the team as well if the offence affects the result. Lets see how his teammates likes that one.....the dressing room could get interesting...

    That's the issue- usually the ball isn't under control, or very 'loosely' under control...

    Kick them into the hoardings seems ok to me...

    Im surprised that one gets so many peoples goat. It does always seem to be a Giant unskilled defender and a tiny skilled striker whos easily fended off.

    You are allowed to sheild the ball and put yourself in between the opposition and ball. I guess theres too fine a line between that and obstructing the player so they just let it go.

    Raise the flag immediately when a player is offside & not wait half n hour !

    That's really griping me too. The lino waited ages last night and raised the flag when Mbappe put the ball in the net, crazy.

    Correct. It's annoying when it's obvious but they're not doing their job incorrectly.

    Yeah if there's something about English football I want changed it's this. Doesn't actually ensure a level playing field at all, as it just ensures that smaller sides can only spend a limited amount whereas the big sides can spend a 10x larger amount.

    How would the modern game cope if we scrapped the offside rule, can immediately think of one benefit.
