    FIFA president Gianni Infantino confirmed IFAB will be looking to conduct trials over a new interpretation of the offside rule proposed by former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
    Wenger, now FIFA's Chief of Global Football Development, wants to introduce fresh criteria whereby if any part of an attacker's body is onside, he will be deemed as being onside.

Offside should only count if a goal is scored or created during the move, otherwise...what's the point in giving offside at all.Offside rule should only count if the players feet are beyond the oppositions feet,on the ground,not if their leg or arm passes the defenders body to strike the ball or to move away from the defenders.

I always hated the offside rule and always thought it should be the way it was explained in this video, if any part of the player is in inline with the defender it should not be offside, it prevents strikes from making timed runs behind the defence because it is almost impossible to time it with the offside rule as it stands now.

Your right shoulder is off side when breaking through your score with your left foot that was onside it’s a goal. Simple logic should prevail. Armpits have been off side when running through when was the last time you saw someone score with their armpit after being played through.

Exactly. If you're arm or hand is in front of the defender (or "offside"), it shouldn't count as offside since you can't score with that part of the body. There is no advantage if that part of the body is "offside".

Make a line 20 meters parallel to the goal out line and if ball is inside this part of the field, there is no offside. That would make it easy to judge and there would be much less "hunting" for offsides from difference.

are we sure that this system could avoid millimetrical decisions? IMO this kind of solution could only MOVE the problem a bit "forward" in terms of offside line (I don't know how to solve it, maybe counting offside only the body parts on the ground /only the feet...)

We should change penaltys. Sometimes the penalty kick is too much of a punishment. Not every fault inside the area should result in a penalty kick, only when the fault is to prevent a goal oportunity. It's difficult to change but something needs to be done, as a football fan I'm tired to see stupid casual handballs or silly fouls away from goals deciding the matches.

My solution to the VAR mm issue is to have a "referee's choice" area similar to the way cricket implemented the technology. In cricket this area is effectively half the width of the ball, which would probably work well enough. In terms of reducing the impact of offsides on attacking play, my idea since childhood is to add a 25 yard/20 metre line to start offsides rather than the current half way line. This would slightly increase the space available in midfield while still achieving the aim of the original law. For me, the biggest issue facing football lawmakers currently is the quick tactical foul, where the benefits of doing this far outweigh the penalty. This one strikes me as a much more difficult problem to tackle than offside, handball, VAR, simulation or any of the other known on-field issues.

This will probably make teams sit back further disconnecting the defense from the rest of the team or just having teams play on the break only. It will make it much harder to rely on the offside trap.

Don't change anything, just put a 10sec clock on VAR. If the VAR referee can't make a decision in less than 10sec, then it's not offside. The offside rule is meant so the offenders don't take clear advantages of the defenders. If you're looking at millimeters then the advantage is not clear and you should allow it.

Years ago - 1970s - my team played in an 11-a-side tournament, 15 mins each way. To make goals more possible, there were NO offsides. Each team played a goal-hanger in their 1st games but they were always man-to-man marked and it didn't work, so spontaneously thereafter every team just played football. It flowed, no offside appeals, no aggro to linesmen or refs about offsides. Fewer hold-ups in the game so more play; it WORKED. Linesmen still needed for ball in or out of play and goal-line decisions - but I have never heard anyone propose scrapping the offside rule.

1 The technology is not accurate enough to determine a literal 'to the mm' rule for offside. It simply can't say exactly when the ball was kicked vs where the attacker is vs the defenders. Cricket has the same issue with ball tracking hence Umpires call. Even though the ball appears to be hitting the stumps the technology has a margin of error so can't definitively state the ball was hitting. 2. Simply add a margin of error to the offside var process so although the player is shown offside, it is not conclusive ie not BEYOND the set margin of error ergo the goal stands. Attackers can't game the system really either. No need for rule changes (although for me only the legs and torso should decide an offside). If the technology improves, reduce the margin of error. This is in harmony with how real a/r's decide. They have to see or hear when the ball is kicked vs the position of the attacker/last defender. That in itself has an error margin, VAR should just be a more accurate version of that.

Offside was introduced to prevent goal-hanging. Souness is right. If you're the last defender and any part of the attacker is further away from the goal line than any part of you - ONSIDE. If all of the attacker is clearly past you - OFFSIDE.

How to fix VAR: 1) Thicken the offside measuring lines giving you a margin of error. If the lines overlap at all it's onside. 2) Give each team 2 VAR reviews for fouls, handballs, penalty claims etc that you lose if you make a wrong review. That way we dont get these ridiculous situations where the play gets stopped 2mins after the incident. 3) Keep goaline tech as is. It's perfect

This is a rubbish idea. Instead of checking to see of a millimetre of the striker is in front of the defender it'll be checking to see if a millimetre is behind the defender.

If any part of your body that can score a goal with is deemed offside, that still means a mm of foot can still be offside (e.g. Mane v EFC at Goodison). I agree with Souness....and this is coming from an Evertonian!

I don't see how differentiating on body parts will remove the millimeter discussions. It will only make matters even more difficult for the linesmen who now also have to process in that millisecond if the body part they observe to be offline is a goal scoring candidate and later when the goal is scored, if it was that body part which was offside (IIUC). Also, I don't know why this is on the table in the first place. The VAR has removed many of the blatant errors of the past, so now we're down to millimeters - there's no way you can improve on that except by abolishing offside altogether (which I would favor but it changes the nature of the game). The big frustration today is the handsball rule, which HAS changed the nature of the game and we have to get back to penalizing only when a defender deliberately uses his hands to prevent a goal. That's subjective, but today's rule makes attackers aim for the defender's hands - and that can't be the objective of the game.

Some of the offsides were really really stupid, and the problem mostly was refs and vars interpretation of the offside. Generally level is onside, but they look for any kind of mm, where the player can be offside, and they can literally take the offside reference point from what ever body part they want to on the players, at the time. Which often leads to offsides or onsides being inaccurate by mms, some are clearly not offside, where as some are, and are not given, because of refs choices but what Souness is suggesting is madness, you will never get another offside again if they play it like that. Maybe Wengers idea will improve it, who knows.
