Found some info on Wiki...

"Unadopted experiments

During the 197374 and 197475 seasons, an experimental version of the offside rule was operated in the Scottish League Cup and Drybrough Cup competitions. The concept was that offside should only apply in the last 18 yards (16 m) of play (inside or beside the penalty area). To signify this, the horizontal line of the penalty area was extended to the touchlines. FIFA President Sir Stanley Rous attended the 1973 Scottish League Cup Final, which was played using these rules. The manager of one of the teams involved, Celtic manager Jock Stein, complained that it was unfair to expect teams to play under one set of rules in one game and then a different set a few days before or later. The experiment was quietly dropped after the 197475 season, as no proposal for a further experiment or rule change was submitted for the Scottish Football Association board to consider."

And also this, on a similar theme.

"In the 198788 season, the Football Association was authorised by the International Football Association Board to test an experimental rule change, whereby no attacker could be offside directly from a free-kick. The competition chosen for this experiment was the Football Conference. The change was not deemed a success, as the attacking team could pack the penalty area for any free-kick (or even have several players stand in front of the opposition goalkeeper) and the rule change was not introduced at a higher level."

You can prove anything with facts.

I would draw two extra lines on the pitch and have offside only counting in the final third of the pitch. The offside trap is a shit defensive policy that ruins the game, in my arrogant opinion.

A bit like the "Shooting Area" in subbuteo ?

How will this work with the return of prmwoe league football?

The talk is of mobile units containing small number of people rather than using stockley park control room with more people

Either way the social distancing going to be difficult.
Would the premier league be daring to scrap it due to circumstances
I thought VAR was here to stay.
