FIFA, EUFA, when are the footballing countries of the world going to tell these peoiple to shove their propososals where the sun doesn't shine and take back the control of domestic Football. What the F*ck does a non league side fielding 24 or 54 players in one match have to do with them.........NOTHING!!!!!!!!!COME ON FOOTBALL LEAGUE, FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION...........TAKE BACK CONTROL OF THE GAME IN THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!!

Those who find the new FIFA ruling intrusive and unnecessary might like to answer the following questions:

a)What possible benefit can be gained from two sides using 40 substitutions (as Fulham and Watford did in the game mentioned above, according to the BBC)?
B) Would you really pay good money to see a match if you knew it would be played out like this?

As suggested by hoagy on confguide, if clubs are going to make such a ridiculous number of changes in friendlies, they should call them training games instead and play them behind closed doors.

Thats what pre-season matches have been about ever since i can remember, if you don't like this format then best you don't go and waste your "good money"!

It seems that this has been changed to only apply to international matches.

Please don't take this as an excuse to play Jeran Meah or Leroy Huggins.
