5 subs now allowed

Recommended Posts

Just heard the news on Talksport IFAB have now allowed upto 5 subs to be used in a game ,Used in a maximum of 3 times during a match including half time ,
 

Reason behind it is to reduce player fatigue 

All well and good but for me this just makes the strong teams stronger ,Back in the day when only 2 subs were even allowed to be named squads didn’t need to be so big ,as the amount of named subs increases the more players of similar quality is required to fill these bigger subs benches and as a result weakens the completion on 2 folds ,a lower level team now has a greater chance of their better players being scooped up to fill a stronger teams bench and their own bench now has players that wouldn’t normally be deemed good enough

5 subs, neutral venues, empty stadiums, halves less than 45 mins, players potentially wearing face masks.

Different game ,leagues need voided if they can’t start and finish with the same rule set

And then you add in the discussion about not using VAR as they don't want a room full of officials covering each game. 

So the first 10 or 15 games of the season were refereed to a different standard than the next 15 on terms of the use of VAR. And now the last 10 or so games won't. Have the system used at all. How in any way shape or form is that fair at all?

The game has completely sold out to TV
