The new goalkick law

Can anyone explain to me the benefit to the game of the new law allowing a goalkick to be received by a player inside the penalty area?

Also is the ball in play once the keeper has kicked it, or once the player has received it? I understand that an opponent cannot enter the penalty area until the ball is 'in play'

Anyway, why would a defender want to receive a pass from the keeper so close to his own goal with an attacker in such close proximity. Its a recipe for disaster imho.

For once footy's higher authorities have brought in a new law that may directly benefit us wints.

It will hopefully reduce the chances of Son Of Peter's default hoofing of his goal kick in the general direction of Chilwell which either a) goes straight into touch or b) our one-legged pirate(cf. Danny Tiatto) in the No. 3 shirt heads aimlessly to no positive effect.

On the other hand I think it may well increase the chances of SOP dropping a bollock and thinking he's the Messi of his own 18 yard area. At some point it will end in tears.

It's all in Law 16

Although some of it is baffling. I can't make sense of the second part of this sentence - A goal may be scored directly from a goal kick, but only against the opposing team; if the ball directly enters the kickerís goal a corner kick is awarded to the opponents if the ball left the penalty area. ... Surely if the ball finishes up in the net of the team taking the goal kick it must have left the penalty area to go in the goal!

I presume they changed the law because they saw it as petty to ask for a goal kick to be retaken if it didn't leave the penalty area.

It is a license to waist time. The goalkeeper puts the ball down, he then pretends to want to pass it to one side of the box then to the other side then back again. He then tells both fullbacks to leave the area, then faffs about a bit longer before passing it to a defender just outside the area.

1min 30secs waisted.

Rubbish law.

The new law benefits Man City greatly, gives the defender at least 10-12 yards breathing space to pick the next pass and opens the opposition right up. Or the GK can pick a pass out halfway up the park.

We're trying to do the same thing, trouble is we have Kasper who thinks he can ping a ball with the same accuracy as Ederson.

He can't.
