  1. In all my years of 5-a-side and the last couple of years of WF, it's always been play on after goalkeeper deflections once the ball comes below head-height. i'll not be convinced otherwise.
  2. Unable to agree this proposal. Having said that, also don't agree with the FA's distinction between direct & Indirect.
  3. The misjudged (imho) posting on the WFU site referring to "investigation" has been removed. Can we now archive this thread.
  4. ... and the Website has a new title "Super Vets United". Not sure what Noel Fitzpatrick will say about that!
  5. Seen on the WFA site today. THE WALKING FORMAT HAS PROVEN TO BE FAR TOO ILLUSIVE FOR PLAYERS 50+ SO THE TIME HAS COME TO CONVERT TO THE GAME ALREADY WIDELY PRACTICED - REGULAR FOOTBALL FOR THE SENIOR PLAYER. RUNNING, CONTACT, PHYSICALITY ACCEPTABLE.
  6. I see that the posting on the WFU site about WW has been removed.
  7. I've had enough. Is it possible to issue Yellow Cards to "WW" & "SR" and call time on their exchanges.
  8. Didn't enter The People's Cup because the WF Laws for the competition weren't available in advance of the last entry date. Shin pads are compulsory, the rest are optional. spikes prohibited.
  9. Firstly, lets congratulate the FA for publication of WF Laws of the Game and their recommendation that WF competition organisers adopt them. Whatever we do in our own backyard when we put jumpers down for goalposts is unaffected. The FA’s take on the Laws doesn’t surprise me; they have to fit WF (and its underlying philosophy) into the rest of the Game & maintain the principals of the Laws overall. I suppose I was expecting a little more on the walking and contact aspects. WF is much MORE than Football without running. The cynic in me could say that the FA have sanctioned a game that has to be played below 6 feet high with one foot on the ground at all times, but with everything else we see on MOTD. Anyways, I’ve never played in any tournaments, only a couple of competitive “friendlies’, so it’s of no consequence apart from wishing WF to continue in a positive fashion. So its back to our own pitch, discuss stuff, maybe experiment, maybe adopt & adapt, and then observe what occurs tournament wise. On a technical matter;- I see nowhere in the Laws to prohibit an attacker entering the penalty area (its only mentioned in the Player’s Guide) or the penalty for entry.
