The English Premier League needs more clubs like Leeds and Sheffield United and less of the Bournemouth and Brighton.

 

But watching them implode so magnificently is brilliant.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Away_goals_rule

 

"Originally, the away goal rule was introduced in football as an expedited way of doing away with playoffs or tie breakers on neutral grounds to resolve a logistical, physical and calendar problem when two teams were so closely matched the final score over the two legs remained in absolute parity, which could remain even after a third game tie breaker. Now, the away goals rule is intended to encourage the away team to be more aggressive."

Because it adds to the drama. They know away goals is unfair (and shite).

I think not having the away goal rule has added much more to it.

Good article here about how the away goal rule is outdated and actually anti-football.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45460290

 

 

The rule's critics argue that things have now tipped too far in the away side's favour, forcing home teams to adopt increasingly defensive tactics out of fear of conceding.

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been banging this drum for a decade. "I believe the tactical weight of the away goal has become too important," he told a conference in 2008.

"Teams get a 0-0 draw at home and they're happy. Instead of having a positive effect it has been pushed too far tactically in the modern game. It has the opposite effect than it was supposed to have. It favours defending well when you play at home."

Teams are certainly scoring less at home now than they have in any previous decade of European club competition...

 Haha  that would be ace.

 

If it were to happen anwhere first though, it would be Scotland.

 

Probably involving a decision against Steven Gerrard's Rangers.

Cheers, interesting read. I quite like the away goal rule as it cuts down on teams playing for extra time and penalties as that scenario can occur less often.

 

Edit: didn't realise there was so much more content in the link. I'll have a read of that, might change my opinion of the rule.

Were we not after that Leeds keeper when he was at Real or was that another one?

 

He’s been poor tonight.

 

Hope Leeds win as hate the media love-in for Lampard.

Brilliant game. Sending off(rightly so) has messed Leeds up.

 

Loads of young players in both sides.

 

The play offs are better than cup finals!!!
