There's times when Sunderland are totally lost and 5 fresh pair of legs could work.
This is going to be weird.
The funny thing is though that the Championship clubs can name 9 substitutes and play 5 but Leagues 1 and 2 can only name 7.
It's not that funny really is it :crybaby:
How come this league gets all the 💩 rules and the ones above don't have to go through this 🐮 💩?

Have we got enough players to have 9 on the bench :lol:
I wonder if we will get to the stage when you can play one team in the first half and a completely different team in the second half.

What are the rules with 10 possible substitutions in the game?

What about winning 1-0 or hanging out for a draw and then using 5 subs in the last 5 minutes?

There's some rules but I can't remember so I won't even try and explain.


I might have the day off today!

5 individual subs at 30 seconds each is 5 minutes.

It would benefit us better if we could have nine substitutes but some would argue that Phil Parkinson is not a good strategist to be able to get the best out of the new rules.

I have no idea why only the Championship got that concession.

Why does the championship get away with the salary cap as well?

Seems as though any league below will get 💩 on.
