Thoughts on this and some of the other proposals?

No. Absolutely, No. No. No. No. No.

Am I clear?

Interesting. Of course this would then add different types of problems and strategies. So, no for me also.

Dont mess with the sport.

The US tried it in the seventies with deciding there would be no drawn matches and the awful 1 on 1 with the GK crap was introduced.
The structure has always been 90 minutes split into 2 x 45 minutes for older youths and adults

What next?;
 - Goals 15yds wide, 10ft tall??
 - No tackling?
 - First goal wins?

It sounds like someone has been watching field hockey the past few years. They went from 2x35 to 4x15, and you can now take your own free hits.

The only change I could support is the penalty goal for handling on the goal line. The defender receiving a goal kick inside the area might make sense for u10, but I prefer opposing players having to drop back to midfield. All the others are a full NO.
