The sub one will just be negated by the player moving to the centre of the pitch anyway, so I doubt much will change. They should make the player run off and issue a yellow card if they don’t, but then of course they’ll feign being injured and we’ll end up having even more time wasted

All of those are reasonable changes, particularly the hand ball rule. Will likely be more changes once VAR is fully implemented and they need to remove the subjective aspect/grey areas from certain laws.

Mangala gets a contract extension. Be like a new signing.

No, I have no idea either.
his contract was up. presume it's to try and sell him. no idea who is buying. he's 6th in line now with sandler making the bench before him.
Is the Chinese transfer window still open? Or will it be waiting until the summer for his £250m transfer to Sichuan Jiuniu?

Pjanic has received a second yellow card a minute into the second half of the Juventus/Napoli match and the commentator absolutely erupted like it changes the match. Juventus are leading 2-0 and the Napoli keeper has been sent off already lol.

You don't like them?
I don't like the wall one about the attackers.

I think the arm one will cause a bit of controversy (logically speaking), the sub one is a bit eh, and as moomba said, if refs enforced things properly and consistently it wouldn't be a problem.

And the goalkeeper one is crap, keepers are meant to stay on their line and they never do.

Why don't you like the wall one? If defenders can't encroach on the attacker, why can attackers influence them?
