    Reading submit their teamsheet week in week out with the number 13 on the substitutes bench labelled as 'Reading Fans'. http://imgur.com/a/zJZOp (Image cuts off the number, but you get the jist)

    Now I understand the tongue in cheek nature of this in relation to the fans being the extra man. However with regards to any of the laws that have a different sanction based on whether the offender is a 'Team Official' or an 'Outside Agent'.

    How would you restart play if a Reading fan interfered with play?

    Good hypothetical question. However, it's quite simpe. As the referee, you cross the name of the list with both secretaries present. Anyway, they've named 8 subs when they can only name 7. And this is the match programme team sheet, not the official team sheet.

    It probably wasn't on the official team sheet and was done for the cameras.

    Hence my comment "And this is the match programme team sheet, not the official team sheet" :)

    The official team sheet wouldn't even have space for an 8th sub.
