Does anyone else really like the 5 subs? I think it makes the game more exciting 2nd half when there are more fresh legs out there. I would not be opposed to making 5 subs permanent. I am sure the football purest everywhere would freak out. Just wondering how others feel about it?

I have always supported the idea of 5 subs, but that each team can only stop the game 3 times to sub (so you can do multiple subs at one time or make subs at halftime to get to 5, but not 5 separate stoppages in play to sub).

I think the difference between club and International play in this is for club where everyone practices the same thing all the time it allows for the game flow to be smooth whereas international soccer it seems like the games get weird with too many subs. I like it.

I think only three times to have subs. I still find the the idea of going the distance with your best eleven. However, I think more strategy can be deployed with more substitutions.

I think with the number of competitions teams are expected to play and with some players going for international duty it helps keep some players rested and possibly reduces the risk of injury. I wonder if extra subs might extend the career of some players too. I really hope it at least goes up for discussion with FIFA.
