Was there not a tie where it was a draw, and we got knocked out on a coin toss but then the ref realised we had actually won on away goals anyway? 1972 Semi?

We lost on penalties I think before the mistake was pointed out to the referee.

Cheers, was sure it was something odd like that.

Toss of a coin did not happen in this game. What happened was Rangers won home leg 3-2 and then lost away leg 2-3 and it went to extra time. Both team scored in extra time. This was the first season away goals counted double and ref did not think away goal in extra time doubled up so it went to penalties.

Rangers lost the penaties but ask UEFA for a ruling on the extra time away goal and they ruled it did count double so Rangers got re-instated and Sporting were out. I was 12 at the time and remember going to bed thinking we were out only to find out next day we were back in. For the record it was the quarters, we play Bayern in the semi.

The uefa officials did not know the rules that night were lettin sportin go through on penalties but a jambo called John Fairgrieve allerted Willie Waddell to the change of rules and Deedle took it from there waving the rule book in the officials faces. Often wonder what would have happened if the officials did not know to the next day what the outcome would have been ! :sherlock:

Also as well there was the 3rd leg if it finished level over 2 legs, pretty sure we had to play the 3rd leg at Highbury against someone-Anderlecht perhaps?

Cheers BD! How was the pizza? heard you were spotted in Asda :sherlock:

kinda off topic, but i mind in a book about shankley, when he was in charge of liverpool, their euro cup tie went to a toss of a coin, but in this case the ref had a disc that was red on one side and white on the other

seeing as liverpool were playing a team in white (canny mind their name) the ref didnt give anyone the chance to call, he went with teams colours

liverpool went out and when the team went into the changing room shankley asked ian st john

"what did you call"

st john told him the story and shankley went and complained as he felt the ref should have allowed someone to choose a colour
