with all the moaning of away setting up for a draw the the way forward would be for the FA to change the ruling and award 4 points for an away win

So you'd prefer to see home teams setting up for a draw then. Much better  Doh

Do teams set up for a draw, or because they know the emphasis will be for the home side to attack, set up accordingly?
I think it's the latter. Teams will be trying to win but are usually more cautious when on the road so it may appear they are playing for the draw.

That's why the 4 points for an away win would encourage a more open game

A 'defensive' set-up could be with winning in mind. Doncaster have quite a few wins away this season. Perhaps they are setting up the way that they do with the intention of winning? It certainly seems to be quite effective for them.

Hey, I just discovered you have an auto-replace of "Franchise" with "Franchise". Not happy with that, actually...

Me neither. I'd have gone with Club Stealing Cunts.

It's a form of censorship. I wrote the name of the team.. that is what should appear, not what a moderator has decided should appear. It's a principle thing...

Disagree. If I wanted to write that, I would have written it. I didn't, but it appears as though I had. Don't want to make a big deal of it, but I was surprised when I noticed it...Any other auto-edits that we should be aware of?
