Football had been invented this season instead of 1863. What fundamental differences would there be now? Say bigger balls, or wider goals, two refs, time outs... etc etc

It would be played on games consoles as nobody could afford a ground!

It would be played by 'celebrities' of both sexes and the object would be not only to 'score' in the traditional sense, but also pull the man/woman marking you.

Fouls in the box would result in forfeits or challenges like Bush Tucker Trials, awarded by Andrew Lloyd Webber and a panel of 'experts' and instead of coming from towns, all football clubs would be affiliated to whatever programme the celebs are from... so Coronation St United would play Westlife City or Hollyoaks Rovers, etc etc.
