      No substitutes in extra time unless a player is injured. These “tactical” substitutions 30 seconds from time really annoy me.....

      And a player having to leave the pitch after the physio has been on...what's that all about!!? A defender could be injured in a challenge that's not his fault, the ball goes out for a corner, and he has to leave the field so penalising the defending team! Nonsense!
      !
      Agree with this, saved me typing here.

      There are no rules in football, only Laws

      Anyway, I’d change the match time to 30 minutes each way but stop the clock every time the ball is out of play of the match is inactive.

      Roll on, roll off subs

      Ditch yellow cards where and introduce 15 minute sin bins for dissent, foul and abusive language or unsporting behaviour including celebrating goals in front of opposition fans and therefore causing inflammatory situations.

      All red card fouls/challenges offences to be reviewed by VAR to remove element of doubt.

      Think there are others I thought of but they are my starters

      Have to say I am deeply suspicious about the motives behind VAR.

      In my sense of the world there has not been a groundswell of opinion by fans etc that is demanding VAR, it seems to be foisted on leagues by their respective governing associations.

      My particular fear is that VAR is the thin end of the capitalist wedge and in 3-5 years the rules about VAR will have morphed into time outs for teams to use or more simply a device that encourage more advertising.

      I may just be getting too cynical, but football fans should be treating VAR with the upmost suspivio

      Defender bringing down an attacker, goalkeeper bringing down an attacker, deliberate handball on the line...you don't need me to explain. Something that the ref feels is an illegal attempt to prevent a direct goal scoring opportunity!
      Yes it does need to be explained. So if an attacker is going towards goal, 17 yards from the goal line, back 4 are in a line with the keeper behind, defender goes in for the ball but miss-times it (or the attacker moves it a little to the side etc) - clear foul, is it a penalty?
      What if the defending team had parked the bus and there were 8 players behind the ball?
      What if there were only 2 behind the ball?
      What are your rules?

      The rule is clear enough for red cards - if it's the last defender, and they foul the attacker, they're off. But if it had to be that bad for a penalty, there'd be loads of fouls in the box just to stop a striker getting a shot away.

      VAR should be used for all penalty decisions.

      Debatable. The current rules would only count such an opportunity when it's the last man - if you did that, there'd be fouls galore, and a lot less goals in open play.

      I think if there were 8 on the line plus the goalkeeper then it wouldn't be a direct goal scoring opportunity. I think my original point of doing away with penalties for those frivolous decisions is getting lost in some technicalities! Jese's 'dive' on Saturday when the ball was sailing out of play no way warranted a penalty. Even if it was a foul, which it wasn't, it didn't deny Stoke a direct shot at goal. I would advocate a free kick, the same as if it were outside the 18 yard box. There may be a few scenarios where the idea is not just black and white but generally with a bit more thought and a bit of tweaking hypothetically it could work and avoid those situations where the attacking team haven't got a Scooby Doo chance of scoring but still get awarded a penalty. I'm fed up with these 'soft' penalties getting awarded which encourages attackers to dive or leave out a leg so there is contact, when they have no hope of actually getting a shot at goal. I wonder if you analysed ever penalty given this season, how many are genuine penalties and how many would have resulted in denying the attacking team a direct goal scoring opportunity? Not many l bet. I obviously know that the current rules are that a foul in any part of the box is a penalty, but more often than not the punishment doesn't fit the crime!
