    Studs leave the ground at all sorts of times in a match for all sorts of 100% legitimate reasons. The fact that studs exist doesn't mean...

    GraemeS replied to the thread Player not on teamsheet.
    The section of law quoted specifies team sheets - not a scrap of paper with 3 subs names, or a verbal listing of subs names, but a full...

    GraemeS replied to the thread Player not on teamsheet.
    Exactly. Although if we're talking "as standard", I'd echo the point previously made about why the referee/junior AR should take any...

    Is this a recent change? How do leagues operate without team sheets then?

    GraemeS replied to the thread Player not on teamsheet.
    Agree in general, but I assume what's happened is he's committed a YC offence (which we see in the video, stonewall yellow, don't know...

    I don’t think they should be down to 9 from what is described. If the outside agent came in for a player, it wasn’t an actual sub, and...

    Yeah, I struggle to justify red where a huge part of the impact force comes from the yellow player missing the ball and initiating...

    GraemeS replied to the thread How to get a free kick.
    If the player in that position is focusing on the AR rather than the ball, they're not doing their job IMO. We talk about "playing to...

    GraemeS replied to the thread How to get a free kick.
    Why wouldn't there be doubt? There's no mandatory audible signal to tell the players the ball is out - so by your logic, every time the...

    GraemeS replied to the thread How to get a free kick.
    The law doesn't require a whistle for a ball going out of play. I wonder if there's another method of communication that we could use...

    Think about it in terms of where the ball is going to end as a result of the kick. Does the exact position of the restart affect the...

    GraemeS replied to the thread Level 4 Observer Reports.
    Yeah, it really depends on the game. That traditional "left wing" position is terrible if they always play short for example, as you're...
