We very rarely hear of 10+ cards brandished in matches…we’ve had three such occurrences  (that have been reported on here) inside the first three weekends of the season.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the return of crowds, a change of disciplinary policy in the EFL or incompetent refereeing.

Bit of all 3 tbh. Seems incredible that yellow cards handed out this season is up nearly 150% on the same time last season

That is without Brett Huxtable and Alan Young.

I’m sure the yellows will return to around the normal rate soon.

Quite. I've been to four games and seen only six yellow cards.

Trevor Kettle and his team changed from black to red at HT at Harrogate. Couldn't see why as there didn't seem to be a colour clash. Maybe they ended up soaked as the heavy rain fell throughout the first half and they decided to change into something drier for the 2nd half!
