    I'm not the one splitting hairs trying to claim jod said something that he didn't say :)

    Do you even know what splitting hairs means?

    Hint: Claiming someone "didn't say something" when they said precisely that, just using a slightly different word is hair splitting.

    Bit of a cagey affair, think we'll be the happier of the two teams especially considering how weak of a team we had on the pitch. VAR seemed to do it's job, although overturning an incorrect decision will be the bit litmus test.

    I was thinking the same thing. Would the decision have been reversed if a penalty was given? The circumstances were near identical to the Hazard penalty that was awarded.

    Do away goals count for extra in these ties?

    Only at the end of extra time. Not after 90 mins.

    Yep. It's a unique rule to the league cup. I like it as I am not the biggest fan of the away goals rule.

    It must be the lower standards of training and expectations kicking in.

    But also depends on what they're feeding him. When I was watching him he was only getting fed a scrap or 2 every now and then from their fullback.
