5 sub rule scrapped for 2020/21 season

Nice that common sense has prevailed.

Good. Less advantage to the huge squads of the big teams.

And Bruce hates subs anyway

I quite liked the 5 sub rule as it gave us the opportunity to swap out lots of our defence when they injured themselves.

It did, but it also gave us the opportunity to get more subs injured per game. We'd need a 40 man squad to last the season.

Still think the way forward was 3 regular subs +2 academy

I like it in principle, but I don't think it's a lack of available subs that keeps managers from playing youth players, it's that they don't trust them. With how little rope managers have anymore, they tend to be so (understandably) shortsighted.

I mean, it feels like every manager we've had for the past decade barely trusted his bench enough to use the 3 available to them.

I saw something that there have been more goals by teenagers this season in the PL than ever, so maybe the tide is turning.

Hopefully! But I also wonder if it's because clubs are making big investments in younger and younger players, so they're motivated to play them.

This would have been a great idea and a lot of clubs would have voted for it I'd say

I'll Hazard a guess

I like the idea, but think we'd use it for 5 minute cameos and running down the clock

Nah we’d just leave the young players on the bench and never use them.

You were still only allowed to make substitutes 3 times in the match so I don't think that would have been any different.
