    I really prefer the game to be decided by the players that the so-called cleverness of managers during a game.

    Obviously, choosing 5 subs is also a manger choice but a less precious one. I prefer the manager having most of their impact on the training field or at halftime.

    Fine with it but as long as it is done in 3 rounds of subs.

    Why not 4? What's with the odd numbers?

    I assume its to prevent any further time wasting by making late substitutions as currently exists.

    I never understood the time wasting thing with subs. The ref can just pause his watch and add on. Makes no sense at this level.

    How about 5 subs but 2 of them have to be under 21?

    The other negative is time wasting subs towards the end of the match to break momentum under pressure. I rarely see the correct allotted time added on. I love a ball in play clock instead of the current elapsed time rule.

    Yeah, I've been calling for that for years.
    Problem is, if that clock is implemented we don't see Alisson scoring a goal in added time.
    The game would be stopped in the middle of a last minute attack.

    Small price. It’s absolutely the fairest and best way to do it.

    I'd go along with it as long as the rule is that the additional 2 players must be homegrown. That way you prevent it from blatantly being used by teams who stockpile talent, it would level the playing field a bit more and encourage clubs to keep a healthy supply of homegrown talent on their books.

    How many mins would be on the clock. The average game must only have the ball in play for about 60 mins

    Even less I think but 60 mins of action would be good.
