    Whilst I agree with Red Bill that the laws should be enforced, I think the sanctions should be of a nature to deter the breach.

    To take one example, a goal keeper wasting time gets the perfect result when eventually, after much messing about, he gets booked in the 94th minute. That does no harm to his team's prospects - indeed the opposite because of the time involved and momentum effect that Bill has described. We also have too many occasions where a player 'takes one for the team' by taking a booking (Lloyd James on Saturday for example) when the penalty exacted should be higher than and related to the gain that the offender seeks.

    So .. punishments to make the crime not worth it.

    Time wasting at a dead ball situation - the set piece is awarded to the opponent ( a goal kick becomes a corner). Throw ins awarded the other team.

    Failure to retreat ten yards after a free kick - the kick gets moved forward 10 yards

    Punching away a certain goal on the goal line (a 20% chance the penalty will be missed, but a sending off in the 94th minute is meaningless) - award a penalty goal and a yellow card.

    Being too slow to leave the field when being substituted - the substitute isn't allowed on for the next ten minutes.

    Failure to get back in your own half after scoring a goal. We see refs ineffectually encouraging players back, nowadays it takes over a minute from the ball hitting the back of the net until the kick off - remedy is any player not back in his own half within a reasonable time has to stay off the pitch until the next goal is scored. (we could have great fun with this on games where VAR is used. The recording will show who is not back within the allotted(30 seconds?) time and they then all get excluded. Mucho excitement!)

    Generalised time wasting (a booking doesn't achieve much and is often counter productive) - sanction should be an option for the opposition to extend the game time by 5 minutes.

    How about that the team conceding the goal can kick off again as soon as they are ready! And no the scoring team cannot grab the ball from the goal and hold onto it.
    That would get the scoring team running back into their own half at lightning speed!
