The FA Cup are going to allow a fourth substitute from the quarter finals onwards:

BBC

Apparently that will add "intrigue and interest".

Give it a rest. It'll allow teams to change one extra player should they need to, which I don't have a problem with. But add "intrigue and interest"? What are the FA on?

(At least they also say player welfare was a consideration.)

The player has to be kept in a windowless sealed box until used, wearing a mask of Greg Dyke and listening to Mantovani so they have no idea what's going on.

You misheard - it's a mask of Dick Van Dyke while listening to Montiverdi.

4th sub must also have had a chicken vindaloo, and 10 pints of Cobra before being allowed on the pitch - that WOULD add intrigue and interest
