Astounding... a sensible decision finally!

What could be more ridiculous than having not one but two goalies on the bench! Everton that!!!

There were games last season when I'd have been happier with them allowing 11.

While I get the initial concept of the 5 subs, it just seemed by the end of the season teams were just making the subs for the sake of it. A lot of the time, bringing on 3 players for the last 5 mins just didn't make any sense.

Good call!

The bottom line is football is about fatigue and how the game changes in the latter stages. More substitutes dilutes that.

Not to mention the enhanced ability for time wasting by using all the subs as a matter of tactics.

I presume they will drop the ridiculous water breaks too.

Anthony, I'll be sorry to see that. We may have sucked in other areas, but we've been the best water break club in the Premier League. Good pre-drinks preparation, highly organized bottle passing, and good deep-gulp finishing with very little unsightly slurping.

It was kind of fun for the restart, but I wouldn't want to see it implemented permanently.
