Subs bench back to normal next season

Post by 1964white »

Premier League clubs reject the adoption of the five substitutes rule for next season at shareholders' meeting today. Back to three subs next season.

Not sure how that will work out for us, on one hand we dont have a particularly deep squad, on the other it gave us that free half time Pablo sub.

You mean time outs?
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

I'm fine with it. Personally, I'd rather not see Man City bringing on sub #5, probably a player worth 100 gazillion pounds.

Thats good news, the 5 subs made a big difference to our opponents, can Man scum still sub the ref if they are losing ? LOL

It seems that the vote was 11 V 9 to go back to three subs and no water/coaching breaks. The top six teams voted to keep both while the “lower” teams were against them. Leeds and Sheffield United voted against keeping them, according to The Yorkshire Post.

I thought that the new sub rules were only temporary measures for the remainder of last season. I assumed that they'd go back to normal automatically. Three is enough anyway.

To be fair Bielsa often made half time subs before those rules came in.

So pleased with this. One of our major strengths is being fitter and working harder than other teams. The less fresh legs they get on the better
