Hi Eds,

Apologies if this has been answered before, but what do you think about the proposed changes to football which were to be debated at Ifab?


{Ed025's Note - load of crap if you ask me taurus..30 minutes each half! whats that all about?..just leave it as it is..

Agree0 Disagree2

It's like when governments try to micro-manage the economy. they just mess it up even more.

04 Jul 2017 20:47:57
Does 30 min halves mean players get 30% less pay :)

04 Jul 2017 21:25:03
More importantly does it mean the fans pay 30% less?

{Ed025's Note - i cant see it mate can you?..

04 Jul 2017 21:28:27
I like the 30 min each half proposal haha. They would stop the clock when the balls go out so we'd see more football, and less of Mourinho teams taking 30 seconds on a throw in to wind the clock down.

{Ed025's Note - good point MK.. :)

i read about it and kind of like it. its a 30 minute clock each half half and the clock stops everytime the ball is out of play. its suppose to get rid of time wasting as it would have no effect anymore. they worked out if you cut out all the stoppages during a football match, you actually get less than 60 minutes of actual football.

matches would still take about 90 mins but there will always be 60 mins of football in play. teams will no longer time waste as there's would be absolute no point . morinho could be out of a job. still it would be a weird change. it could also be exciting and add a new dimension to football. i can imagine how intense it would be knowing the exact seconds you have left to score a goal.

{Ed025's Note - its american football for me ryan stop start all game, not for me mate..

Given an average match has been shown to be LESS than 60 minutes of game time, I am in support of more football per match. Plus a reduction in feigning injuries and timewasting as they would be literally not wasting time seems great to me.

Ed025. Love your presence on these pages and usually agree with you, however I believe you're mistaken on this occasion. Why would the game be more stop start than it already is? We already have problems with timewasting, which this proposal is an attempt to solve. It's at least worth a trial. The only negative I can see is that some sides are going to try and use stoppages to take a breather. Which may extend the stoppages.
Some of the other proposals, like dribbling direct from a free kick are attempts to keep the flow of the game.
It's inevitable that many will oppose change, I believe some of the changes at least deserve consideration.

{Ed025's Note - im too long in the tooth for all that malarkey andy, its great as it is for me so why try to fix something thats not broken?, but maybe its just me being an old fuddy duddy mate..

04 Jul 2017 22:41:45
Pointless. 1 goal in the first 15 mins of second half and you xab just defend for 15 ibstead of 30.

Be so boring. Mourinho would dominate for all eternity.

I like the self pass rule though. So if there's a foul, the player can just touch it himself and keep running, will stop time wasting free kicks and tactical fouls.

Your spot on there ed.
When the world cup was in America in 1994 the yanks wanted to change the 2 halves into 4 quarters for ad breaks.

Sky would do similar with the above proposals, everytime the ball went out of play there would be an ad.

Thats why they love cricket as after every few overs the have ads.

If they did bring in the 60minute match it would turn into a game of set pieces and drills.

Please leave well enough alone.
The refs just need to punish timewasters by leaving the injured player off the pitch for as long as he was on the ground.

This idea has been floating around in my mind ever since 2013/ 2014 seasons Chelski match. If the average play time is 1hr, then make it minimum playing time.

05 Jul 2017 07:20:59
Have players treated on the pitch whilst play goes on. Only stop for serious injuries.

05 Jul 2017 07:16:53
How is it pointless, Supermane, when we currently only get around 26 - 28 minutes per half of active play at present? The clock stops when the ball goes out.
