Premier League 2019 / 2020


Recommended Posts

General PL thread, i'll start with the rule changes

  • Obvious one and biggest in the introduction of VAR, will look at mistaken identity, goals, penalties and red cards
  •  Handball - goals scored via accidental handball are now automatically rules out, "accidental" also removed if the arm is raised above the shoulder 
  • Subs leave the pitch at the nearest point rather than trudging to the dug outs
  • Goal kicks can be taken with players still in the box
  • Theres a change to taking free kicks while a yellow / red card is being dished out which i don't fully understand, if during the process of a red card being given the team decide to take a quick free kick then the offence drops down to a yellow card
  • Attacking players have to be at least a yard away from a defensive wall on a free kick
  • Team that wins the coin toss can defer kicking off
  • drop ball if the ball hits the ref leading to a possession change

Fifa think the opposite, they think it will lead to quicker goal kicks, you don't have to wait for everyone to clear out, can imagine good footballing teams like city will use it to their advantage 

Alex mcleish would love it. 

"right lads no attacking today, just play for goal kicks for us and the keeper hoof it to the big man up front and we'll get a 0-0 win"

I think that more teams will start from the short  kick off 'man city style'.

And many will concede right away, as most defenders aren't that comfortable on the ball. That's why only a few elite teams (man city, Bayern, Liverpool etc) do it these days.

It's been in football quite a while now but generally fascinated how grounds will cope with VAR implemented.

Think I'm right in saying we haven't had one yet in a game at VP. It will certainly be odd seeing us score a goal, thinking "he looked half a yard offside there", not knowing whether to fully celebrate (I also tend to have a quick glance at linesman before fully celebrating if there's some doubt) and then you get the dreaded signal and two minute wait.

On the plus side hopefully we'll get more decisions v top 6 as you could probably get to 20 pages in 10 minutes with all decisions that have gone against us v them in last 15 years.

Certainly needs to be more communication when decisions are being reviewed.

Liverpool have a lot of big players away at the moment. Firmino, Allison, Salah, Mane. City only really have Aguero and Fernandinho. Ederson too but he is not playing

I haven't been this hyped up for a Premier League season in years. These initial handful of games are going to all seem so huge. Hopefully Dean has the team playing loose, because **** the pressure. UTV

If they do, they will be following Huddersfield Town, Arsenal, Liverpool and Man Utd in winning the title 3 times on row.

the detractors wont see it that way but to me that's probably peps target for the season not the CL

dominate English football, do well in the CL, play a style of football that grows the brand
