It takes too long in league 2 to put the ball into play. In Sweden in the highest series there are 6 extra balls 1 on each long side and 2 behind the goal one on each side of the goal. More flow in the game, more fun to watch. Wonder what Grimsby's effective playing time looks like.                                                                                                                                          https://football-observatory.com/IMG/sites/b5wp/2019/wp272/en/

It feels like we’ve not had any effective playing time for ages

We have the option of multiball i think, i am sure you just have to inform the opposition that it is in operation and you can use it....but that would mean having ballboys who actually understand what they are there for, ie retreiving the ball.....ours just sit in pairs chatting to each other and ignore the ball by and large.

Some years ago Sky would put up actual ball in play time at the end of the game, the minutes were always between 40 and 50 minutes, so basically we sit there having to whatch the boats on the Humber for halve of the 90 minutes.

I have been to quite a lot of games over the years, where watching 90 minutes of boats in the Humber, was far more interesting.

Indeed. The relatively simple task of getting ball boys who know what they are there for seems beyond our club. Like everything else it is a bloody joke.

Don't understand why football cant copy rugby. When there's a stoppage the clock stops. Simple!

Also the ball has to go out of play to end each half instead of the ref deciding when to blow.

What you have to understand Sweden is,

We play better when the ball is out of play.
