    Yea so the defending team would have to keep some players back ~ open the game up. More goals all round and both teams have the same benefit.
    And exactly how long would it take to perfect the same defensive play again until Inter Milan wins the next Italian championship with a 5-33-0 and a goal difference of 5:0?

    What about the points for goals?
    There is nothing I needed to comment there, because I already proposed something similar a few posts above, i.e. bonus points for high-scoring teams.

    This would be a problem, considering that a team is allowed a maximum of 3 substitutions per game. If this counted into that quota, the players would still get essentially sent off (as there are no subs left to replace them) --- or, if it doesn't count towards the quota teams could abuse it in a tactic to have their most powered-out players commit horrific fouls just so they can bring a new and fresh player even after exhausting their allocated quota.

    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    A smaller player would just need to find a bit more space between them and the opposition, but I take your point and agree.

    This would be a problem, considering that a team is allowed a maximum of 3 substitutions per game.

    Well obviously the amount of substitutions would remain at three aside from those sent to touch for a bit. Well if its that bad they should of course go off, but you can get red for lesser fouls [last man rule], but I am more saying about collective yellows esp, as collected over a number of games. Also the fouls should be looked at more closely after the game, refs can make mistakes. I know they sometimes do this but I didn’t see much of it in this cup.

    Fresh legs may be good, but usually you already have you best players on the field, therefore it is suitable enough for lesser fouls to loose your better players for the game but have less men.
