Speed Soccer.

Yesterday I tuned in to the last few minutes of the F.A. Soccer Cup Final on TV.
As I waited for the news, it occurred to me that it would be wonderful if all soccer matches could be decided by the type of goal shoot out that we witnessed. Five shots at goal for each side. Winner take all.

Just think of the advantages: -
  • Recovery of many prime time television slots - though not much to fill them with.
  • No requirement for large football pitches.
  • Faster games.
  • Huge savings on players wages. Teams would only have to employ a striker and a goal keeper. Perhaps one man could be employed to do both, if the Unions would allow it.
  • Less newspaper coverage of the subject, therefore more forests saved.
  • Teams would be less likely to hold nightclub raves. Just a quiet drink for two instead.

I'm sure there must be many more advantages. Can you think of any?
