As a newer fan to football the one thing that drives me nuts is how in Tournaments like UEFA or the FA they give more weight to "Away" goals and what kind of football it leads to.
What Chelsea did to the "beautiful" game yesterday at Camp Nou was a crime against nature. Once they got their away goal they parked every bus in London in front of their goal and stop playing football and went into the football version of the four corners "offense" It was painful to watch to be honest who other than fans of the Plastics could have enjoyed what was happening on the pitch yesterday?
Because away goals count basically as 2 goals when it comes to the aggregate once the Chelsea got their lighting strike goal they did not have to try to score anymore and this allowed them to plant that ugly 9 man wall in front of their keeper. It is stupid they are just trying to avoid these series coming down to PK's but it leads to ugly ugly football
A goal should be worth a goal no matter where you scored it that would force team like Chelsea to actually play football not do their imitation of the Great Wall of China. I think it is games like this that drive a lot of casual Americans from football they tune into a hyped game like yesterdays semi and instead of seeing the beautiful flowing game they see Barca trying to wrestle a Tar Baby and my guess is they say this is boring and change the channel
I would much rather have the series decided by PK's or a golden goal sudden death system over the current system.
