Hmmm, that's different.

While out at the local supermarket the other day with 'my little treasure' ,(I call her that because people keep asking me where I dug her up), I bumped into a long lost old workmate.

In truth,I tried to avoid him by hideing behind the discount toilet roll mountain,but he still spotted me anyhow.

An unusal chap,with 'morning beer breath' that could melt glass,(not me, him),but, stopping for a chat was still better than the usual tossco's borefest.

After the usual guff,the topic soon turned to football,(he's a Southend fan,the pier I think,not the football club) & some of his ideas to 'shake up' the game.

Well,this is a summary of his/my ideas:

1. To shake up the League cup,bring in Scottish clubs from the Jock Premier League & maybe if (they supply enough Guinness),the Irish one.The comp needs a lift.

2.Make the youth players clean the boots/changing rooms like they did in 'the good old days'.In return,for players 18 years or over,make it a legal part of their contract that they MUST feature in a least 10 league games a season.That might shake things up a bit in academys across the land.

3.Subs time wasting?,don't stop the game at all,teams can only make a sub when the ball is in their final third of the pitch (i.e. with the keeper),the new player can't touch the ball until the subbed player is off the pitch,(if he does,then it's a yellow card.) Make the third official do something usefull for a change.

Mind you,he also said that in league games that are 0-0 after 85mins,the managers should be made to remove the goalkeepers!.

Maybe I should have ducked down a bit more!.

well, trust THIS woman, anyway! But I bet fouls would decrease rapdily if the perpetrators had to reveal their danglies!

P.S. on a more serious note, with the Scots looking to gain their Independence, it may not be the best time to suggest that their top clubs join the English league.

Yep, I think revealing their 'danglies' might make a difference,but,it's a horrible thought though!.

Regarding the independece vote,If the scots think that that's the best way forward then go ahead by all means.

Personally,I think its a case of all together or f*ck it & look after number one.

I'd prefer the former,but,i'd put up with the later.

It sometimes amazes me that folks in Scotland, (or else where), think the streets of London are paved with gold.

In a previous life, I worked for a leading breakdown firm,(3 letters,orange vans) & some of the worst poverty I've ever seen, (gangs,drugs etc) was within 1/2 mile from Canary Wharf!.

haha a scenario I know all too well.... running into an old aquintance when you both know you dont keep in contact for a reason, yet you arent on bad terms with.... Its an ackward feeling of obligation once they spot you to have a little chat, and they are probably as disinterested in it as you are to start with

2.Make the youth players clean the boots/changing rooms like they did in 'the good old days'.In return,for players 18 years or over,make it a legal part of their contract that they MUST feature in a least 10 league games a season.That might shake things up a bit in academys across the land.

Make the third official do something usefull for a change.

The sub idea is intriging, exactly how its done in hockey where there are unlimited "subs" and subbed players can come back on and off indefinately. I would encourage a system where the new player can not come on until the other comes off, but the sub can be done anytime and instead of having to come on/off at the half line, they have section in the middle third in which the sub can be made anywhere in that section. The other proposal would allow 12 on the pitch, with the new player able to push up on attack and the removed player could hug the byline and jump off once the ball goes toward the sub. Would be the end of the "run to the far corner flag then slowly walk to the by-line when your up a goal with a fe minutes left" tactic.

I think a funky idea would be that if a player was booked with a red, the team which the foul was committed against could either choose to uphold the red and have the player sent off or instead choose to have a penalty instead of having the other team go down a man. Obviously a red in the box would equal both a send off and a penalty. Its a pub league idea, but it would certainly mix things up!

edit: you could also include it so the player earning a red has to be removed and replaced by a player on the bench.

Yes, I think Independence for Scotland is an amazing backward step! I very much hope they will not take it.

You might not agree with me, but the issue belongs in the same bucket as the Terry discussion. Very strong instincts at work. They're the bane of many an existing country and the doom of many previously extant nations.

Based on that expression, she must be ugly as sin. Did you really mean to put it that way?

You've got a nerve Phil implying my missus is ugly as sin,'facially challenging' is the way i'd put it......

'Tis fact that she has 'movie star' looks,it's just a shame that the movie star is Borat.

I liked the last one, but make it compulsory rush goalie, i.e the goalie's not allowed in the six yard box.

Displaying tackle is not a good idea Moisette, I for one would not like to see Barton's willie

Indeed not! I thought of it as a deterrent, but of course many of these exhibitionist prima donnas would rejoice in the opportunity to display their little bits of equipment. Back to the drawing board, moi! Not one of my better ideas!
