FA Trophy - No PKs after ET

Recommended Posts

I'm managing a team in the Vanarama South league. I've just played my first FA Trophy fixture and at the end of 90 minutes, the score was 0-0. The game proceeded into ET and after an additional 30 minutes, it remained 0-0 and the match ended.

Should there have been a penalty shootout? Instead I have a replay of the fixture.

Somewhat surprisingly, this seems to be correct.

I did wonder. What a ridiculous rule!

It appears as though clubs can arrange whatever combination of extra time and penalties that they want in the original tie as well as the replay.

So should this have been included as an option in FMM?

I wouldn't personally see this as the function of the manager to decide.

So, the description of the rules of FA will be updated?

Personally I think there are two options for this:

  • apply a fix that enables the manager to decide the rules of the tie; or
  • apply a fix that uses the sames rules from a similar knockout competition

I just think having extra time and then having to go to another replay is silly. No manager would agree to this format.

I'll put in a feature request to enable the manager to decide, though I'm not sure where this is done in FMT and whether it's something we can share from them or not.
