Yeah that is true. It keeps games better. Obviously at the same time it benefits teams with good depth (big teams) but whatever.

I actually like the 5 subs rule. Makes the second half of matches more exciting imo and you get to give more minutes to your squad. Keeps more players sharp.
There are too many matches being played to revert back to the 3 sub rule. And we all know the additional matches will never go away, because that would mean the revenue also goes.

Don't know where to post this, but are we not going to talk about Romain Molina's Space?

He also talked about Fifa wanting to change the age to sign players to 16 to avoid the issues that faced Davies.

What issues is he talking about?

Apart from the serious pedophilia stuff, everything else is little or more known to happen, just without specific examples.

You could fill this up with just the last 10 seasons of Greek football, nothing really big there other than the criminal stuff. But if you only talk criminal stuff, you could fill up 5 times as much stuff with Greek football stuff since the mid-90s. It's an unfortunate side effect of opening up a lucrative "global business" in places that do not have the infrastructure to not view this as a chance to corrupt themselves. I'm pretty sure Africa, Asia and American countries have tons of shit that's known over there but no one else pays attention, just like we have it in at least 1/3 of Europe..



80% of the players smoke shisha? So what? :lol: Half of them are smokers anyway...

I saw an interesting post on Instagram and thought it'd be fun to do one on our own. The idea is to make a "loyalty XI". Not necessarily a starting 11 of just 1 club men, but players who remained loyal to the shirt that gave them everything and vice versa. Formation doesn't matter but I'll start off with some players I think worth mentioning:

FB: Zanetti
FB: Maldini
FW: Totti

Let's try to keep it top 4-5 leagues only. Extra hard mode: try not to add players who were forced out the club like messi, del piero, ramos, etc. :) that could make it interesting but also a bit harder as that excludes some really good names. Up to the general consensus I guess.
