Arsene Wenger at it again.

Only way I could see it working is if you have to kick it backwards.

I know where you're coming from - so that its not the same as a free kick - but its a great excuse for a defensive minded team to keep putting it in touch if the opposition have to go backwards.

If the purpose of this is to speed the game up, which I'm sure most of us would be in favour of, why don't they just give you 10 seconds or whatever maximum for a throw? 

We'd be spared all that drying the ball, getting the big lads into the box while they attempt a 30 yard throw.  I'd be in favour of firing them off as we can neither defend nor attack them *

* If we sign Andy Carroll and Mitrovic, ignore the above.

Load of bollocks. Even if you have to kick it "backwards", every time a defender deflects the ball out of play near the corner flag, it's basically an opposition corner.

It's bollocks.  If the aim is to speed the game up then, as said above, just put a time limit on how long a player has got to take a throw-in ... just like how goalkeepers are supposed to have a time limit (although, as we all know, only one goalkeeper has ever been penalised for that).

If they want more in play minutes, make any player injured immediately leave the pitch without stopping the game. No ifs or butts, off.

Also countdown clocks on goal kicks. Take too long and it becomes a corner. Just need a bag of balls behind the goal to avoid the crowd keeping hold of it etc (this was a recent introduction in rugby and has worked well on that front)

Despicable treatment of a country's second tier of football.

Best thing I heard this week was a suggest that whoever gets brought down in the box and gets given a pen, they have to take the penalty rather than anyone else on the team. 

I love that idea.

Great idea until someone is tackled so robustly he (or she, obviously) is required to leave the pitch.

Not sure if this is already the concept but if the kick ins were limited to being played on the ground. ie can’t take it like a corner or free kick. Has to be a 5 yard pass along the floor.

wouldn’t mind that but would get rid of the long throw specialists

Don't know the figures so wouldn't want to make it up but would imagine we'd be lower than 50% on having possession after one of our throw-ins, that's how it feels anyway.

If you've a man taking a throw then unless you're  playing against thick cunts they've a man over to mark players.

Plus its just a cue for situations where someone plays a long ball cross field directly in front of them, so then when summat comes from it, VAR then spends ages working out if it went backwards just a little or not.
