Will the new handball rule be changed again? The Premier League has been particularly vocal in its opposition to the handball rule as it stands and the English organisation will be at the fore of any agitation for change .

So what is the new rule and what has changed ? It was also clarified that an "accidental" handball by an attacking player is only penalised if it occurs Why are we seeing more handballs then? For starters, VAR means referees are now having to judge incidents that they otherwise may have missed.

Change in any realm of life can be difficult to adapt to and football is no different as teams come to terms with the updated handball rule.

The new handball rule was rolled out by the IFAB ahead of the 2019-20 season and there were some minor tweaks made to the wording ahead of the 2020-21 season after widespread annoyance among those involved in the game.

Handball decisions have been the source of some of the most controversial moments in football, such as Diego Maradona's 'Hand of God' against England at the 1986 World Cup, or Thierry Henry's 'Hand of Gaul' against the Republic of Ireland in the 2010 World Cup play-off.

For more than 35 minutes, the players of Alberto Entrerrios offered a very nice spectacle to the nearly 4,000 spectators present in the Beaulieu room, back for an official match after the break forced by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The intricacies of the new handball rule have got people angry and frustrated - but is it working correctly under the VAR system? "I'm at pains to tell people that the rules changed in the summer because of reaction to goals going in off hands last year. The rule is clear - it has to be disallowed

Rules are important because they are guidelines to what is acceptable and what not. There would be no civilization without rules . It is not acceptable in a society that has established the rule that sex between two people of such an age difference is not acceptable---and so this is made a law.

The rules were changed in an attempt to avoid such controversy by making things cut and dry, so why has there been so much disquiet regarding the changes?

Why is the new handball rule so contentious?

Former England striker Gary Lineker asked, "Can we have our game back?", while Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson declared that the new handball rule is "ruining the game".

The new rule has been a source of so much consternation because it effectively removed the need for a handball offence to be deliberate and more penalties have been awarded as a result.

Perceptions such as those expressed by Lineker and Hodgson have been coloured by incidents where penalties have been given when a player has accidentally handled the ball inside the area while defending.

Tottenham falls foul of handball rule to draw with Newcastle

  Tottenham falls foul of handball rule to draw with Newcastle LONDON — Tottenham fell foul of the Premier League's newly adopted interpretation of defensive handballs, conceding a penalty deep into stoppage time to draw 1-1 at home to Newcastle on Sunday. A header by Newcastle substitute Andy Carroll struck the outstretched arm of Eric Dier — who was looking the other way — inside the area and the referee awarded a penalty after viewing the incident on the pitchside monitor. Callum Wilson converted the spot kick in the seventh minute of added-on time, leading to Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho storming down the tunnel in disgust.

“ That ’s too fast for it just to be a genetic effect,” said Barrett, although she believes natural selection played a part. Indeed, her study found that the most fertile couples in the Netherlands – those who have the most children – are tall men and average-height women.

As well as penalties, many have been exasperated by the fact that a number of goals have been ruled out after the identification of an apparently innocuous accidental handball in the lead-up.

In the past, some marginal handball occurrences may have been missed or a referee may have made a judgement call on the matter.

However, the fact that such incidents are now closely monitored by VAR during each game, along with FIFA's insistence on the strict and consistent application of the rule, means that they are inevitably highlighted.

Handball offences have thus risen across the game, including in the Premier League, Serie A and La Liga.

What is the current handball rule?

The IFAB defines a handball offence in the following terms for the 2020-21 season:

A handball offence occurs if a player:

  • deliberately touches the ball with their hand/arm, including moving the hand/arm towards the ball
  • scores in the opponents’ goal directly from their hand/arm, even if accidental, including by the goalkeeper
  • after the ball has touched their or a team-mate’s hand/arm, even if accidental, immediately:
    • scores in the opponents’ goal
    • creates a goal-scoring opportunity
  • touches the ball with their hand/arm when:
    • the hand/arm has made their body unnaturally bigger
    • the hand/arm is above/beyond their shoulder level (unless the player deliberately plays the ball which then touches their hand/arm)

The above offences apply even if the ball touches a player’s hand/arm directly from the head or body (including the foot) of another player who is close.

Language change enables us to accommodate new ideas, inventions and technologies. It 's not just the words themselves which change ; the way in which we use them can shift too. Language isn’t fixed; it is always evolving. The English language has changed dramatically over the last millennium.

Essentially, he becomes a different person: new looks, new personality, new everything. But one thing that never changes is his genius, and Another reason the show has been running for so long is that there is no main storyline, it is very much episodic, each episode telling a story of a separate adventure.

It is not a handball if the ball touches a player's hand/arm

  • directly from the player’s own head or body (including the foot)
  • directly from the head or body (including the foot) of another player who is close
  • if the hand/arm is close to the body and does not make the body unnaturally bigger
  • when a player falls and the hand/arm is between the body and the ground to support the body, but not extended laterally or vertically away from the body

In determining a handball offence, the area of an arm from the bottom of the armpit - essentially where a short sleeve ends on jerseys - counts.

Will the new handball rule be changed again?

It is entirely possible that pressure will mount on football's lawmakers, the IFAB, to the point where it is sufficient to prompt further change or clarity on the handball rule.

While it may take some time for any changes to be considered and brought into effect worldwide, national associations have the option of modifying some laws, but must inform the IFAB.

The Premier League has been particularly vocal in its opposition to the handball rule as it stands and it looks likely that the English organisation will be at the fore of any agitation for change.

According to a September 2020 report by ESPN, for example, Premier League referees will be instructed to 'soften' the application of the handball rule and use a more lenient approach.
