Last season in Italy and Spain, 48 and 57

penalties given wholes season respectively, since the introduction of this new handball rule.

Already 6 given in the EPL, and it has just been introduced here.

What a madness!

Surely this is not benefitting football and making a mockery of the game?

Yeah this what has happened. It's to bring us in line with them, I think only 19 were awarded last season in the Prem.

They want to turn football into rugby.
23 - 10 will be a normal scoreline.

Beggars belief though!

I don't blame the refs who have been instructed to apply this rule- tbh. In fact, I take back my insults to them - rare event

I kind of get why they want it but personally I like the differences in the leagues. Clubs are already becoming identikits of each other, just with some doing it better than others, and I miss the variety.

As a fan, I am guessing it is nice to have each league with its quirky and controversial footballing rules, but players and managers want a uniform rules, so they know how to coach/ train their players and players know what to expect.

This handball rules is the most fanciful decision I have seen in this game. Defenders need their arms to jump and they do raise arms to get a leverage when jumping - they can't just cut their arms off?

Maybe send the defenders with arms tied at the back?

Football has seriously lost the plot with this stupid handball rule.

Been watching the Italian league quite alot since lockdown and the amount of handball penalties which are given is unreal.

Only good thing about it is no matter which team you are they will be given against u. Since some very dubious ones given against Juventus and they are supposed to be untouchable.

VAR, players missing with Covid, no fans, comedy hand ball rules, incompetence, bias and corruption, media agendas etc, it all renders football a complete sham these days.

Many people have lost interest in it, the enjoyment has been taken away and replaced with a parody premier league.
