Dissatisfied officials of the Premier League could have argued for the reintroduction of five reserves this season, although the concept has been rejected twice.
More and more leaders are expressing their dissatisfaction with the return to three people for 2020-21, after five people were brought in in June to participate in the re-launch project.
The Premier League is the only major league in which there are again three leagues.
Some senior managers are of the opinion that the current limitation on replacement contributes to the damage problem.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City colleague Pep Guardiola said the decision was partly responsible for a large number of muscle injuries at higher management levels.
Sport knows that this issue has been raised twice before 20 clubs – and in no case has the offer of 14 clubs received the minimum support required.
Last time, about 11 clubs voted in his favor and on Friday, West Ham boss David Moyes said he had changed his mind after initially supporting the return with three replacements.
However, Aston Villa manager Dean Smith believes that the Premier League should respect the permission to use three spare parts.
After the 3-0 victory of his team in the Arsenal on Sunday, Smith spoke live on Radio 5 : I only made one change today, at 88 minutes. For me came the intensity of our players.
We don’t have the best team in the world and we have to manage our players.
I can sympathize with the teams that are in Europe, but there are great teams.
I’ve felt from the beginning that it’s good to stick to the three corrections, and now that we’ve started, we should definitely get on with it.
Clubs have the right to make proposals to vote. However, it is unlikely that a club will try to do this unless it is convinced that it will change the current situation.
It is clear that Mr Klopp believes in particular that the general director of the Premier League, Richard Masters, should have taken the initiative to return to the top five and not leave the clubs that were later accused of wanting to occupy a position that was advantageous to them.
Another reason to worry about the weekend is work planning.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was furious that his team Everton would play at 12.30 GMT on Saturday and only came back after a Champions League game in Turkey on Thursday morning.
Similarly, Tottenham started Sunday’s game at 12.00 GMT in West-Brom after a draw against Ludogorts in the Europa League in Bulgaria at the end of Thursday.
These issues are not new to Premier League officials and derive from the rules of the league that require clubs to have two days off between matches – but as soon as those days are available, broadcasters can still opt for individual matches.
In the case of Manchester United, BT Sport chose the Everton device for lunch on Saturday.
For Tottenham Hotspur, who played four games eight days a week in September because they juggled three leagues, it seems they got a lunch break on Sunday because their game in West Brom did not have the same potential audience as the game between Arsenal and Aston Villa, which started at 19:00 GMT.
Both games were presented at the box office of Sky.
