It's difficult. The changes that i think would benefit the modern game would only take it further away from the game we all fell in love with. So these are what i think would help make the game better, i don't necessarily want them in.....if that makes sense.
1. Use of video tech. Part of that is goalline, part of that is refs being able to review an incident before awarding a peno/goal/red card/whatever and part of that is an independant body who reviews all the games of the top 2 leagues and issues out retrospective action for dives, off the ball incidents, etc.
2. Change the yellow. What i mean by that should have been, make the yellow a 10 minute sin bin. Would a) cut out a lot of diving if someone knows that if they're caught not only are they punished, but their team is as well and also might help to calm players down so they don't get a couple of yellows in quick succession (not that you see it all that often these days, but still)
3. Refs to be accountable. IF the refs had full access to tech, for me it would mean that they should then be utterly accountable for their actions. Take Essians nailed on red against us, or Jonjo's couple that he could have seen red for (depending on what rulebook you look at). Friend is looking right at the incident. If (like on tuesday) he chooses to just book the player, then after the game Friend gets a punishment. Be it a fine, or a dropping from prem games for a week, or something. But they have to be more accountable for their decisions which have, this season especially, gone a long way to make the league pretty shite.
4. Wage structure throughout world football. 16 and under only allowed to be paid so much per week. 17 - 21 so much, 21 up only so much. ANd make it a figure that the working man can understand. 250 grand a week should be criminal for kicking a ball about, and it would lead into the last point which is the only one that should be implemented immediately for me...
5. Fixed ticket price. The charge should be the same around the prem, and by that i mean an affordable price. None of this 45 quid just to go to the match before you've even thought about having a drink rubbish. With the lowering of wages it would mean that clubs could afford to charge the fans less and still make their cash. i dunno, 25 quid tops for the good seats? Have an across the board price for under 18's as well, say no more than 15 quid?
That's what i think anyhow.
