Not on a sub they cannot. They have to wait for the whistle, and the ref has a responsibility to get agreement from the side making the change that they are ready...or at least give them a warning he is going to blow the whistle if he thinks they are purposefully taking too long.
That’s what should happen, but if the ref doesn’t do his job we can help ourselves by having a man standing on the ball to prevent a quick free kick. Even if he gets a yellow it is worth it, especially for a free kick at the edge of your own box.

Atkinsons fault, 100%, but we can help ourselves by being more cynical.
