Will start with the last post from the previous season..

"Back to normal in the PL next season. 7 on the bench and back to 3 subs. "

VAR

clubs “unanimously approved the implementation of VAR in line with the full FIFA VAR protocol”

I don't know what FIFA protocol is. I presume more use of the screens and I hope no check on an offside/possible handball lasting moe than 30 seconds.

This is going to end in tears, there will be dozens of instances of it looking one way without lines on the replay from the broadcaster that we will see, but another with lines that VAR draw on, but as we won't see the latter it will breed massive discontent and accusations of corruption.

Drinks breaks are also gone. Rightly so, use up time (they never add it on properly), stop momentum, not right to be having managers give instructions as they have been doing.

Sounds absolutely shit.

Yeah, can't wait to get in the ground two hours before kick off and sit on my own, not even able to get a drink.

Absolute suite that the offside lines will still be used, it was my understanding that it was not IFAB/FIFA protocol. Will hope that they step in to over rule that...

Postponed now.

Seems the players picked up the virus in a pub. Top notch from their players

By not spending loads of years at L1 level...oh, no messed that option up.

Well its wage cuts or clear out sale. More than likely they will try and find a clever way to hide wage payments
