Update: saw someone mention this on twitter. The old opta charts are available if you enter in matchcenter.(team name).com. Find the match you want, and the old chalkboard is available there, at the original size, time filters, etc.Oh they did. I hadn't even gotten that deep into it yet. I was pretty excited just to find it.
Also I think the player numbers boxes are bigger proportionally to the size of the pitch, so everything is more cluttered. Basically, I think they made the field graphic smaller, but the numbers have to be big enough to read and were already as small as reasonably possible.
