Default Association Football - Official Laws of the game thread

The FA Cup will allow a 4th sub in extra-time, from the quarter final onwards.

On balance it's a sensible change IMHO, as is the FA Cup scrapping replays from the quarter finals onwards.

You'd imagine that both changes have largely been driven by the big clubs with congested fixture lists at the business end of the season.

Will it add to the quality of the game during ET? Not so sure.

For every manager who uses it to throw in an impact sub to chase a winner there'll be one (or more) who will use it to get fresh legs on in defensive positions to try to see the tie through to penalties.

This would mean clubs who have used three substitutes from the seven players named on their bench during the sixth round, semi-finals and Final will then be allowed to introduce a fourth player in extra time. This format was first trialed earlier this summer in the Copa America tournament

Yellow and red cards for referee intimidation and abuse is one I'm looking forward to see in action.

Might be chaotic for the first few weeks but overall it's long overdue.

Didn't have an opportunity to read this but anything for pulling and dragging in the box?

Drives me nuts on corners.

Chris Smalling would give away a pen at every corner kick.

This whole thing is a potential minefield!

◾Visibly disrespectful behaviour to any match official
◾An aggressive response to decisions
◾Confronting an official face to face
◾Running towards an official to contest a decision
◾Offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures towards match officials
◾Physical contact with any match official in a non-aggressive manner
◾A yellow card for at least one player when two or more from a team surround a match official

Also, will there be a Joe Hart exemption?

Hadn't seen much mention of the new 'triple-punishment' rule this season.

But even under the new rules surely Cech should've seen red yesterday?

Watmore had push the ball well past Cech's reach and he followed through to take him down.

Quote:
Players who commit a foul to deny a goalscoring opportunity will no longer automatically be sent off, football's rule-making body has confirmed.

The previous 'triple-punishment' rule required a red card - and therefore a suspension - as well as the award of a penalty under those circumstances.

However, players committing accidental fouls that deny a goalscoring chance will now be cautioned instead.

But deliberate fouls will still incur a red card.

Those include holding, pulling or pushing, not playing the ball, serious foul play, violent conduct or deliberate handball in order to deny a goalscoring opportunity.

We´re into GAA black card territory with deliberate/accidental-first time I´ve seen that in soccer. You often see a mistimed/accidental foul carded which is good as it puts an onus on the tackler to be more careful.
I actually think the whole "denying a goal scoring opportunity" was handled/interpreted poorly by referees when it first came in and that then set precedent.If a team has a penalty kick then they clearly haven´t been denied a goal scoring opportunity so that red card offence should never apply. Also for offences outside the box where a team was denyied a goal scoring opportunity surely a penalty kick would be a better sanction. Same in Gaelic-makes much more sense than a black card and would eliminate cynical fouling at a stroke.

Nothing would eliminate cynical fouling.

Red outside the box, yellow + penalty inside is exactly the correct course of action if a clear one on one is denied.
