A good move,but it does give an advantage to teams playing at home in the second leg.They now get a possible 30 minutes of extra time with home advantage,without losing out if extra time is a scoring draw.

Ah, very good point.

I wonder if that is part of the reason we have been using away goals rules to start with.
 
Yeah, okay I’m interested. I’d still read some blogs about it and see what they have to say but personally I think this is a good decision overall.

I think it's a good move, I never liked the rule because to me it doesn't make any logical sense from a sports point of view. It wasn't a rule designed to reward the better team.
