  • I read MLS are introducing new rules next season and I think these are some good changes worth implementing:

    Off-field treatment rule • If a player is suspected of injury and remains on the ground for more than 15 seconds, the referee will stop play and call for medical staff. The player will be removed from the field and remain off for at least two minutes for evaluation and treatment.

    Timed substitution rule •Substituted players must leave the field within 10 seconds. If a player doesn't leave within 10 seconds, the incoming player must wait 60 seconds before entering.

    In-stadium VAR announcements •Referees will announce and explain VAR decisions.

    • I actually like the timed sub rule...some of these guys move too damn slow

      • 100% agree. I know it's a time wasting tactic and you kinda expect your team to do it to wind down the clock, but it can be so infuriating when it's the other way around.

        I'm all for having a set time and then it's all square across the park. That being said, the crack down on time wasting in the PL is as effective as a clown at a funeral. If you're going to crack down on timewasting during subs, do it across the park. Especially for some goalkicks...

  • Rumours that we might sign Szczesny from Juventus. I'm not sure how practical that would be for anyone, but my heart says "hell yes!!!"

    • Mmm... I always had a soft spot for him and was sad he left. But yeah... I'm not sure on that one. Maybe depending on price, he could be preferred as rotation.

      He'd probably be a good leader to have in that position in training and in the dressing room. Could even maybe look to join/be part of the coaching staff, if he's that way inclined?

  • Just finished "The Next Doctor" only to realise that there's 4 more episodes afterwards. I kept waiting for him to need to regenerate but no lol. That next Doctor is brilliant though.

    • Which episode is that one? They all blur into one for me now xD

      Get your tissues ready. Tennants last episode hit hard the first time I watched. I think it got me the last time I watched too

  • Leverkusen can't keep doing this 😂😂😂 I dunno who sold their what to whoever, how are they doing this 😂😂😂😂

    • What an astonishing run... who knew Xhaka would play part in an invincibles like team, lol

      4 more games to go, I think? Man... I hope they go on and do it.
