  1. 20/08/2019 : The financial problems afflicting Bury Football Club should be alleviated and below I show how this might be done. This is not just for Bury but for all clubs. The travel industry has a scheme (ABTA) to cover costs where a company fails. Football should have a similar scheme. The scheme must cover all clubs in the league and must not be a means for irresponsible owners to profit from their mismanagement of football clubs. The ten points I list below are a loop, going from 1 to 10 then returning to one. 01} Integrity of the league - its ability to provide the framework within which its clubs compete. 02} Clubs make the league - and Fans make the clubs. 03} Abta scheme for football clubs - to maintain the integrity of the league by supporting its clubs. 04} The league sets-up an operating company to run its abta scheme. 05} All clubs pay into the abta scheme to capitalise its operating company - this is a condition of league membership. 06} Ownership of a troubled club transfers to the abta scheme operating company - this is a condition of league membership. 07} A transfer of ownership to the abta scheme operating company is without compensation to the previous owner(s) of the troubled club. 08} The abta scheme operating company covers the costs of a club in trouble, so it can fulfill its fixtures. 09} The abta scheme operating company is to sell the club, but any new owner must first show current and ongoing proof of funds. 10} The proceeds from the sale of a club goes to the abta scheme operating company and not to the previous owner(s) of the club.

  4. 18/08/2019 : Prediction League Table for Game 02, Wk02 (Bournemouth). The table as posted on AVF through the image hosting site is shrunk by that site and becomes unreadable. To avoid this I have linked my original table posted on Twitter to AVF. Click on the link below then click again to enlarge the image. Table Sorted by Player Name (ascending) within From (ascending) within Played (descending) within Score (descending) within Total (descending). 19/08/2019 Update, late scores incorporated. Wk02 shows who played in this game (Y or N); there were 47 active participants out of 80 players this time. Nobody scored any points and all movements are based on who played. EPL (Premier League), Saturday 17/08/2019 : Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth Original table on Twitter, link : https://pbs.twimg.com/media/ECV-USgWkAEeOAl?format=png&name=large : AVF-2019-Gm02-Wk02-V2.png 19/08/2019
  5. 18/08/2019 : I agree that one of the few drawbacks of being in the EPL is having to suffer MOTD ! EPL (Premier League), Saturday 17/08/2019 : Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth After this result AVFC's total Form Points remained 0 ... that is, points after 38 games. The maximum available is now 108 points, with 108 points left to play for. AVFC are below par and 17th in the table, with 0 points and GD at -3 from 2 games. Hopefully, this will be the lowest we ever go this Season !

  8. EPL (Premier League), Saturday 17/08/2019 : Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth Christmas form by the looks of it, giving away a penalty in the 1st minute. A Luiz error enabled Bournemouth's 2nd, although he atoned for that by scoring in the 2nd half. So no home win at Villa Park today and at the cricket, England are not doing too well either. One of those days ! Attendance : 40,996 (SSN)
  9. EPL (Premier League), Saturday 17/08/2019 : Aston Villa 1-2 Bournemouth Avfcjamie: 2-1 CarlReevesAVFC: 3-1 DareToBlock: 2-0 stellaciderman: 2-0 Tom12399: 1-0 davidfortnam1: 2-1 kieranbeck_: 1-0 Thread Locked.

  11. Scottish League Cup Round 1, Sunday 18/08/2019 : East Fife v Rangers, KO 15:00 hours, BT Sport. 16/08/2019 : It is the League Cup instead of the League this weekend.

  13. 14/08/2019 : Going by last Season I think the table put through the image hosting site will be unreadable on AVF, so I shall just link on here to my original table on Twitter.
