Sorry to start this thread so early, but I didn't know where else to put this.

UEFA is scrapping away goals in all tournaments effective immediately. How the hell this will affect things, I don't know, but I'm all for single-leg knockouts on neutral grounds.

I hope not (I don't think that part is confirmed), but otherwise, your sarcasm is on point.

I suppose the argument could be made that the higher-seeded team should have that homefield advantage but it really puts a dagger into the chances for the lower-seeded teams IMO. Maybe it'll work? I don't have confidence in that though.

I feel like this is being done to somewhat placate the ESL knobs by making it easier for them to advance.

I guess it's worth an experiment. It has felt in recent years that the away goals rule is a bit overpowered at times. I don't really remember how it was before though.

Think they should get rid of extra time too based on that so no advantage re playing at home for longer

Who would come up to replace them?

Someone from league 1 or one of the relegated teams from the championship last season?
