Booo, they've been allowed to postpone the game. Should have been forced to play a scratch team of under-23s, Jossy's Giants, and Gazza (KFC and Razzle optional).

Post-Brexit guidelines are out:

quote:

The FA, the Premier League and EFL have come together to agree a plan for entry requirements for overseas players post Brexit.

Football’s Governing Body Endorsement (GBE) proposal was submitted to the Government last month by the FA, as the governing body for football, and has now been approved by The Home Office.

The criteria will provide the framework for Premier League and EFL clubs to sign overseas players when the UK leaves the European Union (EU) after 31 December 2020.

Post Brexit, clubs will not be able to sign players freely from the EU. Players from EU countries who want to play in the Premier League or EFL will be required to gain a GBE, like all other overseas players without the right to work in the UK.

The GBE will operate a points-based system, where points are scored for senior and talented young players based on:
• Senior and youth international appearances
• Quality of the selling club, based on the league they are in, league position and progression in continental competition
• Club appearances, based on domestic league and continental competition minutes

Players accumulating the requisite amount of points will earn a GBE automatically, while players just below the threshold may be considered for a GBE by an Exceptions Panel.

The system meets the joint objectives of the Premier League, EFL and the FA allowing access to the best players and future talent for clubs, as well as safeguarding England teams, by ensuring opportunities for homegrown players.

In the Premier League, the number of overseas U21 players a club can sign will be limited to three in the January transfer window and six per season moving forwards. This enables the recruitment of the best players from around the world to train and play together with homegrown talent. Under FIFA’s rules, the UK’s exit from the EU will also mean that clubs will not be able to sign players from overseas until they are 18.

The leading football bodies have also agreed to work together to continue to improve the player pathway system.

The Women’s game has also had their GBE proposal approved by the Home Office. This will also operate a points-based system, where points are scored on:

• Senior international appearances
• Quality of the selling club, based on the league they are in and former league position
• Club appearances, based on domestic league and continental competition minutes

The agreement is in accordance with the Government’s required criteria and will come into effect when the UK leaves the European Union, in the new year. It will be implemented in the January 2021 transfer window and reviewed in full ahead of the summer 2021 transfer window.

Mark Bullingham, our chief executive officer, said: “Despite having different starting perspectives on how Brexit should impact football, this is another example of how the football authorities can work effectively together for the greater good of the game.

"We have a strong working relationship with both the Premier League and EFL and will monitor this new agreement together to ensure it evolves to best meet our joint objectives over time. We will also discuss improvements to the player pathway for the mutual benefit of football clubs and homegrown talent in this country.”

Richard Masters, the Premier League’s chief executive, added: “The Premier League has worked with the FA to come to an agreement to ensure no part of Brexit should damage the success of the Premier League, or the prospects of the England teams. We welcome the news that the Home Office has approved the Governing Body Endorsement plan for the January 2021 transfer window.

“Continuing to be able to recruit the best players will see the Premier League remain competitive and compelling and the solution will complement our player development philosophy of the best foreign talent alongside the best homegrown players. Following the January transfer window, we look forward to reviewing the agreement with the FA.”

EFL Chief Executive, David Baldwin, said: “The EFL has contributed to the discussions with our colleagues across football as the game prepares for the UK’s exit from the EU, and it is helpful to be able to provide clarity for EFL Clubs by having an established position to a long-standing issue ahead of the January transfer window, albeit in the short term.

“The objective of the EFL throughout this process has been to ensure EFL Clubs continue to have the opportunity to sign players from overseas to enhance the quality of their playing squads, while recognising the need for restrictions, and we will continue to assess the application of these rules and consider the long-term implications early in 2021.”

The necessary documents for players, coaches, assistant coaches, performance managers and directors of football can be seen below.

Gonna be fun to see the VAR lines shrink so they can fit them between the strikers trailing foot and the defender

Is it really that difficult to just give the var maximum 30 seconds and if they can't overturn the ruling on the pitch by that time it stands?

Apparently yes.

Bin the loving pixel lines, do a "clear and obvious" error.


I do kinda think the offside rule atm is poo poo where 1mm difference is considered an advantage. Especially when say the striker is on the other side of the pitch from the defender.

I think Arsenal’s problems as much as anything now is the formation Arteta has them running. All the offensive patterns of play have to go down the wing where the sideline effectively functions as an extra defender. There is absolutely no threat through the middle of the field to the point where the defense doesn’t even have to consider the possibility. Then when arsenal do get it down the wing their only real possibility is a cross into the box where there is no longer a Giroud type player who is strong in the air. It’s all just seems deeply flawed. There needs to be at least a threat of a pass through the middle.

Yeah this is right. The formation Arteta has been using has made the defense better, which is cool and all, but at some point Arsenal need to score goals to get points and they’re not doing that.

The biggest problem IMO is that he's trying different things structurally but everyone always seems to be playing the same way and when players put in god awful performances week after week they just...start the next game. There's no accountability. Why in the world are Xhaka and Willian still starting at this stage? Why can't Nelson even get on the bench in the league? Yeah, most of the young guys are not ready and the quality of the competition in the Europa League is much lower, but at the very least they play like they give a poo poo and they know what it looks like when you score a goal.

Mesut Ozil sucks rear end and would make this team even worse FYI
