I think, having 2 legs will be in our favour as it is less likely they could perform a snatch and grab and over 180 mins one would hope our class will shine through.

Worst draw you could have got. It's still your competition to lose though.

But you could look at it as having our toughest game first, so if we win it the final should be easier.. (in theory).

Swansea is the best team out of the 3, so its good for us to play them in 2 games and not in the final. that way there's a bigger chance for us to show we're the better side. I dont know why you're upset. i wanted us to get swansea.

100% this... :)

But bradford over 2 legs would have been fun. Real chance to get an aggregate score of 10... :)

Yeah, maybe toughest would have been a better word rather than worst.

Yeah not bad for a change. Too much pessimism. Our quality shone through luckily. Hopefully it's onwards and upwards from here. :)

Hopefully. :) Too much pessimism can be very tiring.

Of course, we got Swansea. We all wanted the easiest opposition left in the competition but ended up getting the toughest. Typical. Need to win the first leg at home and hope we can take a healthy lead to Liberty Stadium.

And in this two legged semi final tie against Swansea, the away goals rule is in place BUT will only count after extra time if the score is leveled on aggregate.

seriously? how does that make sense. if the fa actually wanted to change anything then it should have been away goal rule till normal time and if both the teams score in extra time then nothing changes as the rule would then be for 90 minutes of play for both the teams.

so we have an extra 30mins to score an away goal, yes?

If the score on aggregate is level after 90 minutes in the second leg, then it will go to ET. The away goals rule will count after that if the aggregate score is still leveled.
