Also when it comes to cup games the team in the lower league should get to play at home first so they can make some money. I'm assuming they make more money at home than play away to a prem team for example. If not then, forget it.

When you say no extra time do you mean no added time?

Actually I don't think this will work. It's all about fairness and it only takes one team to claim they lost out on goal difference because they were denied their 7 minutes of added time.



I never thought about scoring for goal difference. Can't remember the last time it came in to play, but still a valid point.

One more sub during extra time as well would be good. Think it has been mentioned before.

As for the time wasting. The clock not stopping until a team goes ahead is another suggestion. Once it gets back to a draw, the clock runs normally again. Though some teams would be playing for a point anyway.

Teams can select fourth sub in Champions League, Europa League knockout games next year


Yes, I like this. Just hope managers use it to put on an attacking players instead of a defensive one to make through to penalties.

Why are more subs a good thing? Substitutions tend to beak up the flow of the game.

It's just for extra time. Give the game a possible fresh pair of legs.

Ah okay. I can see the sense in that.
