    Scottish Football Thread 18/19

    20/06/2018 : Have this here for the record, from Rangers' website today. RANGERS have been drawn to face Shkupi of Macedonia in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League. Based in the capital of Macedonia, Skopje, FK Shkupi are competing in European competition for the first time having finished fourth in the Macedonian First League last season. They play at the Cair Stadium, which has a capacity of 6000, although only around 2000 of that is seated. Skopje itself has a population of over half a million people, and has history dating back to Roman times. The first leg is scheduled for Ibrox for Thursday July 12, while the away leg is scheduled for Skopje for Thursday July 19. Supporters should however wait until the venues and dates for the ties are confirmed prior to making any travel plans. Ticket information for the Ibrox leg will be confirmed in due course. Should the Light Blues be fortunate enough to progress from the Shkupi tie, they will face one of CS Petroclub of Moldova, or NK Osijek of Croatia. The dates for that currently stand as July 27 and August 3. UEFA Europa League first qualifying round (provisional dates). Thursday July 12 : Rangers v FK Shkupi Thursday July 19 : FK Shkupi v Rangers UEFA Europa League second qualifying round (provisional dates). July 27 : CS Petroclub or NK Osijek August 3 : CS Petroclub or NK Osijek Also for the record, 'Macedonia' has just agreed with Greece (and others) to be known as 'North Macedonia', to differentiate itself from the Greek province of Macedonia (based around Salonika). Hibernian have been drawn against NSI Runavik (Faroes) in the 1st qualifying round and Aberdeen will face Burnley in the 2nd qualifying round. Bye-bye Aberdeen !

    2000 FA Cup Final match ball

    07/06/2018 : Welcome to AVF, Ox. Don't worry about Dimitri, he usually talks balls ! Further to that, I cannot help you with a match ball. Regarding the 2000 FA Cup Final itself, I said at the time that if we had won it off that performance, then it would have been an embarrassment. It was a dismal display by AVFC that day ... with deja vu in 2015 !

    Missed tax payment

    That is a good sign. Dr Xia is reported to be flying in from China, so he will need to get to his office at Villa Park and then review the situation. Yes, he could do all this online, but there are security risks (hacking of signals). He will be better placed being here to make whatever decisions are needed, which means 'wait and see' for all of us (and Wyness!).

    Summer Changes

    05/06/2013 : I started a new session in Firefox and came here at 21:03 hours to see I had a new notification. When I went to it I found it was my post of May 6 showing the final Prediction League table ! I cannot remember who the notification was from.

    Dr Tony's statement.

    What was the source, Stu? If 'no debt and close to making an operating profit' was accurately based on AVFC's accounts then the financial claims may be trusted, but if the claims are not based on the accounts then it will just be an assessment (or guess) by the author.
