Rule Change: 

VAR, thicker lines, armpits and handball rule changes for new season

 

VARs

Premier League set to use 'thicker lines' in games this season to determine marginal decisions. This should rule out instances where a player's toe has led to a goal being ruled out, cases which many fans, players and pundits felt were ruining the game.

 

Armpits and offsides

A brief clarification from FIFA about where offside lines start and stop: they say the bottom of the armpit is now being classed as the part of the body where offsides will be measured from.

 

Handball language changing

Accidental handball in the build-up to a goal will no longer be deemed an offence. The crucial word here is 'build-up'. It will still be an offence if an accidental handball directly creates the chance that scores the goal, or scores the goal itself.

 

New approach to penalties

There will also be a tweak in the approach toward penalties after a record high of 125 were awarded last season. This season, referees should not only establish whether there is clear contact but whether it had enough of a consequence in order to award a penalty and whether the player used the contact to try to win a foul or a penalty.

 

(European Games Only)

UEFA abolishes away goals rule in Champions League and Europa League

The governing body has announced that, as is common in many elite level football competitions across the world, if the scores are still level over a two-legged knockout tie there will be two 15-minute periods of extra time. Should the teams score the same number of goals, or if no further goals are scored, during extra time, a penalty shootout will take place to determine which team will go through to the next round.

DAVE DUNMORE (1960-1961) Passed away aged 87

 

Dunmore spent a prolific year with the Hammers between March 1960 and March 1961, scoring 18 goals in 41 appearances, including a memorable hat-trick in a 6-0 First Division win over Arsenal at the Boleyn Ground in November 1960. The 1960-61 season proved to be Dunmore’s only full campaign for the Irons, but he made sure it was a memorable one by netting 16 goals in 30 games, including 14 in the league and one each in the FA Cup and Football League Cup.

EDDIE PRESLAND (1965) Passed away aged 78

 

Born in Loughton in Essex in March 1943, defender Presland joined the Academy of Football as a schoolboy in the 1950s and signed his first professional contract in October 1960. However, with the likes of John Bond and then Jack Burkett holding down the left-back position, Presland had to wait patiently for his chance to play for the first team. When his debut did arrive, though, the 21-year-old marked it in style, scoring the equaliser as West Ham came from behind to defeat Liverpool 2-1 in the First Division in front of 25,780 fans at the Boleyn Ground in February 1965.

West Ham United roared back in the second half to overwhelm Newcastle United and triumph 4-2 in their Premier League opener at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon. Twice the east Londoners trailed to Newcastle headers in a see-saw first half, first to Callum Wilson and then to Jacob Murphy, but they kept going and ensured Aaron Cresswell’s equaliser in between would be built on. David Moyes’ men emerged for the second half at real pace and had the game won before its mid-point. First Saïd Benrahma nodded home to level up for the second time of the contest, before quickfire goals from Tomáš Souček and Michail Antonio left a stunned Magpies side on the ropes. It was a truly thrilling start to the campaign, as 3,000 Hammers high in the St James’ Park stands more than enjoyed their return to full houses in the Premier League.

West Ham United celebrated the return of a capacity crowd to London Stadium by storming to the top of the Premier League with a sensational 4-1 win over Leicester City. The Hammers were at their very best on a celebratory night in east London, as 59,901 supporters returned home for the first time in 541 days. Pablo Fornals sent the West Ham fans wild by opening the scoring midway through the first half, before Saïd Benrahma made it two after Ayoze Pérez had been sent-off. And, after Youri Tielemans had pulled one back for the Foxes, Michail Antonio ensured he would make history on this memorable evening, netting two second-half goals to break the Club’s all-time Premier League scoring record.

West Ham United maintained their unbeaten start to the season but were twice pegged back in a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace at London Stadium. The Hammers struck first through Pablo Fornals shortly before the break, and although Conor Gallagher levelled for the visitors on 58 minutes, Michail Antonio’s fourth goal of the season ten minutes later had home fans dreaming of a third straight win. However, Gallagher had other ideas, scoring his second goal of the afternoon just two minutes later and ensuring the spoils would be shared in East London.
