I adore the away goal rule. Man city knew the stakes yet failed to score at WHL.

Away goals is European football. It would be mad to discard this rule.

Agree, it would make it too much of an advantage playing second. Imagine if that game went to extra time, City would have had an extra half our in their own stadium. And you'll just get more games going to penalties, which is shit. And you lose that moment of one goal changing going though instead of out.

I can see them scraping it then realising they've made a mistake and bringing back in a couple of years. It's a fair rule and adds greatly to the drama.
