I thought they'd brought in 3rd round eliminators, I suppose they will eventually. But yeah it seems 5th round is new this year. Not even a good enough game to make a VAR call, another think that I think should be 100% in at least PL and Championship as well as cups.Just a fyi if you had managed to get a equaliser, you wouldn't have played extra-time you would have had to do a replay, from the 5th round this season is when ties have to be decided on the day.
(I don't agree with replays being scrapped in the 5th round though, I can understand the 6th round/quarters being decided on the day but with lower league sides that sometimes get to round 5 I think they deserve the chance to potentially get a day out or big payday if they manage to draw with one of the big clubs home or away in a game.)
And yeah that's what all managers are judged on. (results - well normally)
