  1. What was the outcome for you on this? I was told can't do it, have to wait until 16th March and that was that. System not set up to allow it apparently
  2. I've made other plans already since the Derby loss so I'm a bit late for that
  3. If we make it, our home game will be Saturday 11th at 17.15, as confirmed by the EFL today (https://www.efl.com/news/2019/may/sky-bet-efl-play-off-semi-final-details)
  4. Due to league restructuring, the FA are only allowing 5 of the 7 play off winners to be promoted. They've decided that the 5 that go up are the teams that got the best points per game in the regular season, and as it stands Yate fall outside of that top 5. Someone's put together a really useful spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13xevutBR_9D5P27f9cBbVc_6icDZi5tfwuVQhc7msLM/edit#gid=0) showing what the situation is for each team.
  5. An astonishingly stupid rule this season means that Yate can win the play off final and still not go up, and are relying on the results of other play off finals at their level to fall their way. Cinderford are in an even worse position in that they are coming into the final knowing that even if they win, they will 100% not be going up through no fault of their own.
  6. Derby v West Brom confirmed as the selected Sky game on Sunday (only one)
  7. Yeah, I didn't specify but it does only apply to attackers
  8. At the moment the law is interpreted in a way that the goal is fine, but the law is changing from next season to any handball, whether accidental or deliberate, that leads to a goal is a foul. As a result, if this situation happens next season the goal would have been ruled out.
  9. The explanation given by IFAB is: The experiment that at a goal kick the ball is in play once it is kicked, and does not have to leave the penalty area, has created a faster and more dynamic/constructive restart to the game. It has reduced the time ‘lost/wasted’ including stopping the tactic of ‘wasting’ time when a defender deliberately plays the ball before it leaves the penalty area knowing that all that will happen is the goal kick will be retaken. Opponents must remain outside the penalty area until the ball is in play I would agree with you that it probably won’t
  10. Yes they have changed it from next season
  11. Hmm, good question - I'd have to guess here and say that in that case, the ref wouldn't allow a quick restart and would send the defending player off to ensure he doesn't have a further impact on the match, but I can't be sure of that and I can't find anything that covers something like this
  12. I'm afraid it's the other way round, we'd have to finish 3rd or 4th to be away on the Saturday (unless of course you're aiming high and are counting on us getting in the top 4 )
  13. This Law was introduced last season and is (meant to be) used in the EFL. The fact that you, like myself, haven't noticed it happening in our games means that refs are either not implementing the Law correctly or there just haven't been incidents where this has been the case (and tbf I can't remember any happening recently)
  14. It's a good point, but in theory it shouldn't work like that. This is a simplistic scenario but the Law has been designed to work as such: attacking player is through on goal 1 on 1 with the keeper, gets taken out by a defender who has denied an obvious goal scoring opportunity, hence deserving a red card. If the fouled player quickly gets up and plays the free kick, there are 2 possible scenarios; the attacking player that receives the ball is in a situation worse that the original play, therefore ref stops play and sends defending player off, or the player that receives the ball is in the sa
