hi I'm in London on holiday and went to the hammers man city game yesterday awesome day.there are at least 2 new rules brought for this season.1 goal kicks don't have to go over the 18 yard line to be deemed in play.Makes for  a much faster game.2 if a ball strikes a defender's arm in the penalty for whatever reason it's a penalty if deemed a fact by the var.

In another note there were what appears to be a tidied up set of rules around the role of the VA announced which I thought were quite good.there's a good you tube explanation on them in the hammers website.

My question is - are these worth a new topic and some discussion before the new a league season?

Anything under Laws of the Game are FIFA rules and supposed to apply to official leagues where the new season kicks off after June 1st.

VAR is not mandatory, nor is allowance for 4th sub for extra time games.

The goal kick rule, new handball rules, attacking players 1m from wall, uncontested drop ball for injury stoppages or ball hitting refereee are all supposed to apply.

Edit to add:  except where permission given by FIFA to federation to modify rules for internal competitions.

What's the attacking player 1 m from the ball rule? Not sure about how I feel about the ball not needing to leave the box after a goal kick...

What I would REALLY like to see is a mandatory rest period of 5 minutes after injuries requiring treatment! That will speed up the game and weed out all the divers...

Attacking players have to be at least 1m away from the wall (i.e. they can't join the wall anymore, so you don't have to have all the jostling/pushing/shoving that used to take ages to sort out before a free kick is taken).

it's 1m from the wall - at free kicks ie when a defensive wall has 3 or more players in it attackers are not allowed within 1 meter of the defensive wall.

2. Opponent in the penalty area when a goal kick is taken

Law 16 requires all opponents to be outside the penalty area until the goal kick is taken and if an opponent remains inside or enters the penalty area before the kick is taken and plays, challenges or touches the ball, the goal kick is retaken.

However, Law 16 also applies the ‘quick’ free kick principles outlined in Law 13 – Free Kicks, 3. Offences and sanctions that if any opponents are in the penalty areas because they did not have time to leave, the referee allows play to continue.

In practical terms, this means that referees should manage goal kicks (and defending team free kicks in their own penalty area) in the same way as they manage free kicks:

- Unless the kick is taken quickly, opposing players should be required to be outside the penalty area and remain outside until the kick has been taken.

- If the kick is taken quickly and an opponent genuinely did not have time to leave the penalty area, the opponent may not interfere with or prevent the taking of the kick but may intercept the ball once it is in play. This is allowed because the defending team, as at a quick free kick, tried to gain an advantage by taking the kick quickly and if this ‘goes wrong’ the Law is not there to ‘save’ them.

- Players who deliberately remain inside or enter the penalty area before the kick is taken should not gain an unfair advantage, even if the kick is taken quickly.

If an opposing player commits an offence (as outlined above) the goal kick is retaken; there is no disciplinary sanction unless the offence occurs a number of times (persistent misconduct).

Referees are skilled at managing 9.15m at free kicks and they should apply these skills and principles to the management of goal kicks and defending team free kicks in their own penalty area.

More players get kicked just enough so the team is down a player (or 3). 

It is a problem but don't think that is the solution.

Thanks for the overview. I guess quick goal kicks could we useful when you're losing etc. There will probably be more attacking opportunities as well when the quick goal kick is taken poorly or possession is lost.

Re: 5 minute suspension, I know it's not a new rule, just speculation so feel free to move the post.

I think giving 5 minute (or 3, 4...) will significantly reduce injury stoppages. Nothing irks me more than seeing a player go down and stay down, only to trot off the pitch  and go straight back on after receiving 'treatment'.

The way I see it, if you're genuinely hurt, you probably need treatment and a short rest anyway. And of course this rule would need to go hand in hand with safeguarding the better players so that Messi doesn't spend half his game on the sidelines because he's getting kicked to shreds.

Thanks for the update guys.The other rule changes are interesting.

Re the VAR.

These were explained pre match and at half time at the match I was at.Also found a YouTube video on the Hammers web site in which Alan Sheared explains how it's going to work in the EPL this year.Can't provide the link as using a Kindle.If someone can post the link that would be helpful.

Read somewhere last year's A -league season was one of the first comps to trial the VAR.

1. The rule that required the ball to leave the box was a good one. Made it harder to play out from the back. It was abused by teams who, when pressed on a goal kick, would just step back into the box to receive the ball forcing a retake. Solution here is simple - if the ball doesn't leave the box it's an indirect free kick.

2. Don't like subbing off anywhere, just feels a bit awkward I'm sure it'll be abused somehow (player being subbed and talking shark to fans, other players, something). Mitigates a problem which wouldn't exist if referees applied stoppage time correctly.

3. Drop ball rule has also been removed. Fair enough. I was disappointed that I never got to exploit it in a rule match - previously there was no requirement that one player from each team could contest. You could have all 11 players contesting if you wanted.

4. Changes to penalties and goal keeper's feet are really really stupid though. So stupid in fact that VAR isn't allowed to rule on it.
