    Away goals double

    Assume this came in, in the days of away teams parking the bus. Surely with the way the top sides play now, this rule is no longer needed

      It would just mean a return to teams parking the bus. You would give up this season's champions league drama, for that?

      They'll keep it just in case we win the League Cup next year.

      I still personally love the away goals rule. Adds some extra spice and excitement to two legged ties.
      Barndoor Gatting, Barndoor Davies, Barndoor Holroyd, Barndoor Paynter. Who is next for this coveted title? Barnes is currently favourite to take the crown from Billy Paynter.

      Absolutely right, time to introduce it in the Premier League. That would put a spanner in the works of the anti football aficionados.

      Indeed it does, and never more dramatically than at tonight's semi in Amsterdam. If the rule wasn't in place, the tie may well have just gone to a penalty lottery. Do you think that is more desirable?

      Now there's a thought. You score points based on the aggregate score of your home and away result against each opposition. I'm sure there is an anorak out there that could work out what the table would like at the end of the season. Question would be whether you play the home and away games consecutively rather than spread out like they are now.

      Wasn't there a time / competition when extra time was played if a draw and THEN away goals counted? Gave the home side a bit of an advantage though but then again so does a true draw situation with for example (if it involved us) 0-0 and 0-0.

      Same system as now but an extra two points awarded to the winner over two legs once the return is completed.
