    Six play-off places, sin bins, kick-ins, three points for an away win and two for a home win and the golden goal in the play-off final - The Conference and below has long been a guinea pig for shit gimmicks...

    What would you introduce to liven the league up next season?

    A bonus point for winning by 3 goals or more. Sadly I could see the FA trialing that too.

    Any team that takes less than 100 supporters away from home on average across a whole season has to start the following season on -15 points.

    Whenever a team releases a tinpot statement they automatically forfeit the next match*

    *That's Orient and Boreham Wood fucked, then.

    Teams to be docked a point whenever a player tweets 'We go again next week'.

    Make every team install a 3G pitch, to counter our "home advantage".

    If you knock a league 2 side out of the FA Cup you get a bonus 5 points, 10 for a league 1 side, 15 for a championship, 25 for a prem side.

    Also if the away fans outnumber your support in a league match then you get a 15 point deduction.

    There should be up to 10 points up for grabs based on an independent assessment of the food/ales you have on offer. 0 for a shrivelled poverty burger and Carling, 10 for home cooked awesomeness and proper ale. I don't think we'd fare too well, but it should still be a thing.

    nominated players to go in nets when there's penalties - the team taking the penalty gets to pick from any of the outfield players from the opposition

    If a shot that goes wide is caught by a fan then that fan is allowed to play as a 12th player for their side

    All clubs have to swap names with another one. That way Guiseley go up to the Football League and fans of another club enjoy watching their team play at a higher level again.

    One free penalty each just before they go in for half time.

    Managers have to play themselves for a minimum of 10 mins each match.

    One season ticket holder picked at random allowed to join the field of play if an injury occurs when all three subs have been used.

    If the first goal scored is by player wearing traditional black boots then it counts double.

    Fines for clubs whose tannoy system can only be heard in the dozen or so seats surrounding the directors box.

    Each team is allowed one midfield enforcer who is immune from being booked. Cue 40 yard dashes to boot a flair player into the stands.

    Multiball. If the first half is goalless, the second half is played with two balls.

    Make it mandatory that Richard Brodie has to represent each and every club at some point during the season.

    Referees to be sin binned for 5 minutes every time they make a terrible decision, and replaced for this period by a fan of the team their decision went against.
