  1. 25/06/2019 : New thread to cover EPL matters away from AVFC for Season 2019-2020. The big news in the EPL is the pending departure from Newcastle United of Rafa Benitez. He will leave NUFC at the end of his contract due to failing to get agreement on transfers, etc., with the Club's owners, of whom the principle one is Mike Ashley. Message to Mr Ashley : Keep your hands off Dean Smith !

    John Terry

    19/06/2019 : Excellent news today regarding John Terry. The extension to 2021 shows ongoing commitment by JT and by AVFC too. This is the sensible way to manage the Club.

    Pre-Season 2019

    12/06/2019 : AVFC have announced another pre-Season Friendly today : We've added a European friendly to our pre-season schedule. Saturday 3rd August Red Bull Leipzig (A) KO: 3.30pm (local time)
  10. 11/06/2019 : European Championship Qualifying. Saturday 8th June : Scotland 2-1 Cyprus Tuesday 11th June : Belgium 3-0 Scotland
  11. 11/06/2019 : There are three things that negatively affect a forum and not just this one. 1} Entirely legitimate and understandable are real life commitments, which leave the Member with less time to spend on the forum. Sofa and Apollo have cited their real life commitments as examples of this. For AVF another real life reason was the closure of the pub(s) that several Members used to meet up in on match days. 2} Alternative internet options, 'Social Media'. This is a matter of choice for those who are internet active. Personally I have found Twitter useful for expanding the reach of AVF via the Prediction League. However, Twitter's 240 character limit means it is not the medium for thoughtful debate ... but it is useful for honing one's skill at precis ! Other options are FB and a personal Blog. Both do allow for article length postings but neither can guarantee the ongoing debates that can be had in a forum. One can easily be left talking to oneself ! Personally I have a FB account but I rarely use it and I have not created a Blog. 3} Trolls. These are the charlies who have nothing positive to offer to a forum and just seek to undermine it. Below is my response to a troll on AVF and I recommend this response (if any) to all our genuine AVF Members : 'You are evidently a troll. No further communications henceforth.' To sum up, I have enjoyed using AVF for several years now and hope to continue using it. We Villa Fans have been though some 8 years of torment since MON left. Now, with Aston Villa playing decent football again and back where it belongs, closure of this forum, our forum, is the last thing we need. No Surrender to trolls !

  15. I agree that Dean Smith has to prove himself in the EPL, Rog. DS's record so far is so far, very good, but it is just the start. I hope he will be with AVFC for longer than MON was and as for 'we could lose him', I do not see who we could lose DS to, apart from England.
