  2. Football New Rule and Law Changes Coming. A New Look of Football. These New Rules in Football. The Main Important Changes are. 1. 30 Minute Halves. 2. 60 Minutes Football Matches. ______________________________________ Football reforms: Scrapping 45-minute half to be debated at Ifab http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/40311889 A proposal to scrap 45-minute halves is to be looked at by football's lawmakers to deter time-wasting. Instead, there could be two periods of 30 minutes with the clock stopped whenever the ball goes out of play. Lawmaking body the International Football Association Board (Ifab) says matches only see about 60 minutes of "effective playing time" out of 90. The idea is one of several put forward in a new strategy document designed to address football's "negativities". Another proposal would see players not being allowed to follow up and score if a penalty is saved - if the spot-kick "is not successful", play would stop and a goal-kick awarded. Other ideas include a stadium clock linked to a referee's watch and a new rule allowing players to effectively pass to themselves or dribble the ball when taking a free-kick. Former Chelsea striker Gianfranco Zola is in favour of the proposal to cut matches to 60 minutes. "I personally like this rule because there are so many teams who try to take advantage of it because they are winning and wasting time - so I think it is not a bad rule," he told the BBC. "Football is fast enough. Some of the changes I don't like very much, but this is a good one." _________________________________________________ Football rule-makers to consider reducing games to 60 minutes https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/jun/17/football-rule-makers-reducing-games-60-minutes • International Football Association Board looking at radical rule changes • Attempts to cut down time-wasting and make game more attractive World football’s rule-makers are to consider a proposal to reduce each half of a game to 30 minutes in a bid to prevent time-wasting. The International Football Association Board (Ifab) has outlined a raft of radical proposed changes to the rules of the game in a new strategy document titled Play Fair! Adopting two halves of 30 minutes with the clock stopped when the ball goes out of play is one of dozens of ideas put forward by Ifab in an attempt to make football more attractive. Smolov launches Confederations Cup mission to spark Russia World Cup fever Read more Ifab says the Fair Play! document has three aims – to improve player behaviour and increase respect, to increase playing time and to increase fairness and attractiveness. “Many people are very frustrated that a typical 90-minute match has fewer than 60 minutes of effective (actual) playing time (EPT) i.e. when the ball is in play,” Ifab said in the document. “The strategy proposes measures to reduce time-wasting and ‘speed up’ the game.” Ifab said some of the proposals could be implemented immediately and require no law changes, while some are “ready for testing/experiments” and some are “for discussion”. Among the ideas up for discussion is that of a player being allowed to pass to themselves at a free-kick, corner and goalkick, a stadium clock which stops and starts along with the referee’s watch, and allowing a goalkick to be taken even if the ball is moving. Other ideas up “for discussion” include referees blowing for half-time or full-time only when the ball goes out of play, and a penalty kick being either scored or missed/saved, with players not allowed to follow up to score, in order to stop encroachment into the penalty area. Plans which need no law changes mostly apply to Ifab’s bid to combat time-wasting. The document says match officials should be stricter on the rule which allows goalkeepers to hold the ball for six seconds. Ifab suggests match officials should be stricter on time-keeping, stopping their watch from a penalty being awarded to the spot-kick being taken, from a goal being scored until the match resumes from the kick-off, and from the signal of a substitution to play restarting. The proposals already being tested include the idea of only allowing captains to speak to referees to prevent match officials being mobbed. This is being trialled at the Confederations Cup in Russia, which started on Saturday. Another proposal already being tested is a change to the order of penalty kicks in shootouts, known as ABBA. Instead of teams taking alternate penalties, the new system involves team A taking the first kick, then team B taking two, then team A taking two. “The ‘first’ kick in kicks from the penalty mark has a built-in advantage primarily because there is greater mental pressure on the second kicker (in each round) who often faces instant elimination if they miss their kick (especially once the first four kicks for each team have been completed),” the document says. Ifab is made up of world football’s governing body, Fifa, and the four British home football associations and is responsible for making the final decision on law changes. The Play Fair! document will be discussed at various meetings before decisions are taken on whether to develop ideas further or discard them. ______________________________________________ David Elleray backs 'radical' IFAB proposals for football laws http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/10918689/david-elleray-backs-radical-ifab-proposals-for-football-laws? Penalty goals and 60-minute matches are among the "radical" proposals up for discussion by football's law-making body. The International Football Association Board has developed a strategy document spearheaded by technical director and former Premier League referee David Elleray intended to make football "fairer" and "more attractive". Some of the possible rule changes 60 minutes of actual playing time Penalties when keepers handle backpasses Penalty goal for handling on the line Players can dribble from free-kicks and corners Ball does not need to be stationary for set-pieces Under the proposals players would be allowed to play free-kicks and corners to themselves instead of passing; the ball need not be stationary for a free kick; a penalty would be awarded for a goalkeeper handling a backpass; and a penalty goal could be given if an outfield player handles on or close to the goal-line. Elleray told Sky Sports News HQ: "It's a starting point to say 'can we make the game better?' People will find reasons not to do it but we just want to explore some of these and see if they come into fruition. Some are being tested by FIFA in the Confederations Cup and by UEFA in some of their competitions. "Some of the more radical suggestions may take a couple of years, but we can test at different levels. At youth level, international, we may have some countries that say in their league they would like to try something. "We're not putting a time limit on them, it's a five-year strategy. Some may come in much quicker, some may not come in at all. It depends on what football wants. "What we're saying is can we use the laws of the game to make football more attractive, fairer, to improve the behaviour of players and to gain greater respect." Possible changes to time keeping include the whistle only being blown for half-time and full-time when the ball goes out of play; and using 60 minutes of actual playing time rather than 90 overall minutes as at present. Teams could also be docked points for surrounding a referee. "That's quite an extreme one," added Elleray, when discussing a rule change to reduce playing time to 60-minute matches. "But in other sports the clock is stopped when the ball goes out of play. "We know that in most top-level football you only get about 60 minutes of play where the ball is actually in play. "It's often [late in the game] when we see the most time wasting, time lost, because a team is winning 1-0 and want to preserve their win no matter what. This is certainly quite extreme and something we might move to more gradually." Minor amendments include a goal kick not having to leave the penalty area before a defender touches it and a goal kick being awarded if a player misses a penalty kick, instead of any follow up being allowed. The strategy document, called Play Fair, will be discussed over the next few months, before the 2018 IFAB annual general meeting in March, which will decide which proposals should be trialled in competitive matches. "The underlying philosophy of 'Play Fair' is a call to the conscience of everyone involved in football," said a statement on the IFAB website (www.theifab.com).

  4. The English Football Thread

    Man city can pay and buy All The best players. But there is a thing called chemistry and not having to many good Players with big egos and huge wages for every player. Fatigue and Injuries will happen and paying players huge expensive contracts with being injured during the season. It will be even more laughable when man city don't win trophies and cups with a huge wages for every player.
