Moyes against the use of five substitutes

The Premier League is meeting again today as they move closer to a restart on 17th June with West Ham due to play their first fixture against Wolves on Saturday 20th June.

On the agenda will be whether top-flight clubs will be willing to play certain matches at neutral venues on police advice based risk assessments.

They’ll also try to come up with a plan to finalize the league table if the season cannot be completed using unweighed points per games but the potential for scrapping relegation is not expected to be on the agenda.

Clubs will also vote on whether to allow up to five substitutes during games. West Ham manager David Moyes is reported as he doesn’t want the Premier League to approve the use of five substitutes during games. Moyes believes rules can’t be changed halfway through a competition.

A statement is expected later as to what decisions have been made by the twenty-member clubs with fourteen votes required to pass any decision.

  1. Completely agree with Moyes on this. It would just give the bigger clubs more of an advantage over the lower clubs of the league. If you have the talent on the bench like city it would be great but how many players could we bring off the bench to make a difference, certainly not 5.

  2. I don’t agree with Moyes, typically stupid stuff from Moyes. If he was in any way positive he should embrace this. It just reflects on how old school he is. I would say if you look at the games he has been in charge since he came back, there would be games where he would not have even used his 3 subs, or if he has he has used them very late. Has someone not told him yet that football is now a squad game. Absolutely clueless remark from a clueless manager. I see he is talking up players like Snodgrass, Fredericks and Wilshere again, this guy and his sidekick Nolan could bring us down. Moyes wont be around next season as manager but I have to say I would appoint him as a director of football. he has certain attributes I like in terms of this role.
