Surely that would encourage defensive players at least to use the whole of their arm as a defensive shield knowing that a ref is going to find it very difficult to spot the ball having 100% contact with such a small part of the body with the ball travelling at very high speed in a game where players are moving very fast in free flowing football or in a crowded penalty area. You’ll have to use VAR, which in the next sentence you would like to see only used for ‘goal line & off the ball incidents‘. Add in the ‘was it deliberate’ or ‘ball to had/hand to ball’ element and you’re potentially opening up a can of worms.

Then it needs renaming to arm ball😁 We never had this problem during the 70's,80's & 90's etc and it can't all be blamed on having more camera angles.

I've always argued that the simplest way to handle this, pun intended, is to treat it like the ball hitting a foot in Basketball.  If people want to spend the game trying to force a handball from someone, let them, they'll soon lose their place as they'll be next to useless in the game as a result.

You probably should just limit it to the actual hand - after all, it's the only part of the body that provides greater control and therefore an advantage, so it makes sense to rule that out.  Hitting your elbow is a game of chance, you get no real advantage in the grand scheme of things than you do my using your foot or your head.

So - handball for hitting the hand ONLY but given regardless of intent.  Sorted.

Jimmy Greaves finally receives recognition for his contribution to England's World Cup '66 exploits by being named in the New Year Honours list fto be made an MBE.

Long time coming that. He always used to have a good thing or two to say about Town so hat's off to you Mr Greaves. Muchly deserved.

I think that as it is the handball rule is fine. You need the elbow etc inlcuded otherwise players will just start blocking shots with them.

The law says that it's handball when deliberate. That means moving your hand/arm towards the ball on purpose, or having your hands/arms positioned so that they can block the ball. The ones you see given where a striker blasts a ball and it hits a hand of a defender, close to their body, who's charged it down, with no possible way of it being deliberate, are just ridiculous and I've not idea how they can be justified as 'deliberate'.
