  1. Well it's good luck from me Stuart, from someone who only plays at the recreational level. Pleased to hear that you wish the players in your squad "to play the right way." Please include " with a smile on their faces"
  2. FA Walking Football Laws Of The Game Quiz 1

    I just completed this quiz. My Score 88/100 My Time 61 seconds  
  3. You are the Referee

    Definately 'Running" or "Not Walking" if you prefer. Looks like both feet off the ground at the same time, although I haven't bothered with any slo-mo. Recreationally, I'd blow for the infringement, and we'd all have a good laugh, because I bet he's a persistent offender. If it was the last minute and the team were 6-0 down or up, I'd probably let it go, and again have a good laugh.
  4. WFU Site ball in or out?

    Never considered the line being part of the penalty area, in all my years of playing.. Perhaps thats the difference between players and referees. So regardless of what referees are advised, I beg to differ.... In my opinion....Its always going to be " the whole of the ball across the whole of the line ".... so any part of the ball on the line is going to be fair game for both attacker, defender & goalkeeper. Once the ball is wholly over the line only the goalkeeper may touch it. Defenders & attackers encroaching into the area, meanwhile, should be determined by where the footprint is. Any part over the line is in the goal area. "Ball at its base" in the WFA rules is nonsense for all forms of Football.
  5. Overhead height from goal keeper

    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.
  6. Indirect Free Kicks

    Unable to agree this proposal. Having said that, also don't agree with the FA's distinction between direct & Indirect.
  7. Stop Press

    The misjudged (imho) posting on the WFU site referring to "investigation" has been removed. Can we now archive this thread.
  8. Stop Press

    ... and the Website has a new title "Super Vets United". Not sure what Noel Fitzpatrick will say about that!
  9. Stop Press

    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.
  10. Yellow Cards

    I see that the posting on the WFU site about WW has been removed.
  11. Yellow Cards

    I've had enough. Is it possible to issue Yellow Cards to "WW" & "SR" and call time on their exchanges.
  12. The People's Cup

    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.
  13. FA Launch Comprehensive Laws For Walking Football

    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.
