Seven Subs A Charm For Pearson

Nigel Pearson has reacted positively to news that seven substitutes will again be allowed this season, after reverting to five last campaign.

Speaking to the Leicester Mercury Pearson said it would make it easier to give chances to youngsters and would mean he wouldn't have the headache of worrying about the goalkeeping position.

'I didn't use a goalkeeper on the bench for the last two months of last season because I just felt we needed more options to try and win games. The seven subs allows us to get a better balance on the bench. Some people think it's too many, I just felt the decision the previous season to go to five subs without talking it through was not a very good one, in mind of the fact that we are trying to get more home grown players into the system.'

I'll hold my hands up and say I don't agree it, five substitutes are more than enough to allow for tactical changes, sendings off and injuries and what was wrong with putting a striker in goal when needed - always added a bit of entertainment to a game didn't it. And 72 members of the Football League voted for the change so there was enough discussion.

Of course you have to make the difference that money is involved now to a ridiculous extent in the game, and a striker going in goal for the final 20 minutes could be a difference of up to 100,000 in league placing revenue, but with money tight at the lower leagues 7 subs is an extra strain they don't want and I really don't see the problem with 5.

How long before clubs argue they should be able to make 5 changes?
