Marco van Basten’s 10-point plan

Marco van Basten suggests 10 changes to football as it stands now.

1. Abolish offside.
MVB: “I am very curious as to how football would work without offside,” he said. “I fear many people will be against it. I would be in favour of it, because football is increasingly resembling handball… This would make the game more attractive, the attackers would have better chances, more goals would be scored. That’s what the fans want to see.”

2. Time penalty instead of a yellow card.
Van Basten: “One idea is to replace the yellow card with a time penalty of five or ten minutes. That frightens. It is more difficult with 10 against 11, let alone with 8 or 9.”

3. Take-ons instead of penalties.
Like the old school style adopted by the MLS. Instead of penalty shoot-outs as we know them today, players would take on the goalkeeper in one-on-one style, running at the keeper from 25 metres out.

MVB: “The action must be completed within eight seconds. The goalkeeper may not leave the penalty area, if he parries, it is over. This is spectacular for the viewers and interesting for the player. In the shoot-out, he has more possibilities: he can dribble, shoot, wait, as the goalkeeper responds – this is more like a typical playing situation.”

4. Effective playing time in the final 10 minutes.
This is to ensure there is no time wasting. Van Basten: “We therefore also discuss making the last ten minutes of the game a period of effective playing time… The ball must roll for the full ten minutes. Because when a team is winning near the end, they do everything they can to take up time, for example through substitutions.”

5. Flying changes.
Unlimited substitutions with players able to come on and off. Van Basten: “We are also discussing this, which is a possibility. However, only for youth competitions. But we must also think of the referee, he must always know who is on the pitch.”

6. More than three substitutions.
MVB: “There are good reasons for this as a coach, but that would mean a maximum of twelve substitutions. This would waste a lot of time. We also talk about one or two additional substitutions in the extension, which I would find good… However, the game and the game flow should not suffer from it and should not be fundamentally changed.”

7. Prevent the formation of packs arguing with a referee.
Van Basten: “There can be too much complaining about the referees, which costs time. It would therefore be a good idea if, as in rugby, only one player of the team – the captain – should speak with the referee.”

8. Maximum number of fouls.
Van Basten: “I’ve had the idea that a defender like in basketball can only commit five fouls, then he has to leave the field.”

9. 8 against 8 on a small field instead of 11 against 11.
Van Basten: “We should stay in professional football at 11 v 11 on a big field. But in the youth or with senior citizens over 45 years, 8 v 8 would be perfect in a small place. They would have the ball more often, would have more play in the game, have more fun, because they have to run less.”

10. Less mandatory games per year.
Van Basten: “We do our best every day to generate even more money in football. But there is no money problem, there is already a lot of money in football. We need to focus on the quality of the game. We should reduce the number of 80 games at a level that is not the highest to 50 games at the top level. We have to help the top stars like Ronaldo, Messi and Ibrahimovic, who want to see the fans, so they are mentally fresh and physically fit because they have fewer games to complete.”


Wint mind change in penalty...

Penalties are fine they are a last resort to settle a match changing them is pointless a one vs one wouldn't be more exciting than a penalty shoot out imo it would just be different

I think an extra sub should be allowed in extra time and I'd also suggest that if you have to sub the keeper due to injury then that should be a free substitution if your keeper gets sent off and has to be replaced that would still count as using a sub. I think the extra time sub has been used in a trial somewhere.

The core rules of football imo are fine they don't need to be changed the game has already changed enough to favour attacking players anyway why would anyone want to be a defender the fun in defending used to be kicking people and slide tackles which are basically banned now. No offsides would just mean huge gaps between the two teams defences as you be forced to have a goal hanger who'd stand up top forcing 2 defenders to be back all the time. I think they've finally got the offside rule about right.

Roll on Roll off is bullsh*t at the top level you'd just have a free kick specialist on the bench who'd come on and off every time you got a free kick we don't need NFL style special teams.

I agree on the mandatory games I think to ensure quality they need to reduce the number of games that means shrinking the European Competition formats by getting rid of the group stages (good luck with that).

Cant agree on 1 change. Any of these will spoil the game. Van Basten no doubt one of the greats but his suggestions / recommendation are plain stupid. I would agree on Goal sub when injured shouldnt be counted but soon noises will be made why it should be limited to GK.

My argument with the keeper is its such a specialist position it's not comparable to outfield players who can play more than 1 position plus you have 6 options on the bench.

Keepers never get changed in game for tactical reasons

I quite like the idea of more players on the bench and or more substitutions being available during a match, but with the rules that a certain amount of the players must be under 23's or something similar?

I'm not sure on his ideas, I don't think he's necessarily thought of ideas to improve the game he's just come up with things to change it. In one instance he's saying take away offsides to make it easier to score then changing penalties to make it more difficult.

I also don't think there is anything wrong with the yellow and red card system we have as long as the refs are implementing the rules fairly and correctly.

Dont' be so pedantic :p

Changing the keeper 30 seconds before a penalty shoot out hardly counts.
