  3. Europa League Group D Round 6, Thursday 10/12/2020 : Lech Poznan 0-2 Rangers

    Any worries about SG's team selection were banished in a game that Rangers started tentatively and grew into to dominate. Picking up steam then maintaining the pace, relentlessly. Cedric Itten's well taken opener provided a half-time lead and Hagi made sure Goldson's header went over the line for the 2nd goal. So Rangers top Group D undefeated and will be seeded in the Round of 32 Draw on Monday. Well Done to all.

    Lech Poznan v Rangers

    06/12/2020 : Until this very year Poznan was the home of regular steam railway services, which makes it an appropriate host as the end of the line in Rangers' successful campaign in Group D. Let our Flying Scotsmen leave a winning impression from their visit (and the famous locomotive is as international as our team !).

  9. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 06/12/2020 : Ross County 0-4 Rangers

    Sportsound and my Twitter feed for this one. Rangers' 1st half opener (shown on Twitter) started from Davis' visionary pass to Tavernier, whose accurate cross was deftly diverted into the goal by Roofe. Tavernier scored early in the 2nd half and later forced a Ross County OG to make the score 0-3 and after multiple substitutions, Defoe scored in the 90th minute to make it 0-4 to cap a bright performance on a bright day.

    04/12/2020 : Ross County - Celtic's League Cup nemesis. It looks like Sunday will be a bright but cold day at Dingwall. Let us have a bright performance there from Rangers and see our 7 game SPL winning run extended.

  11. Europa League Group D Round 5, Thursday 03/12/2020 : Rangers 3-2 Standard Liege

    Against adversity Rangers turned this match around and thereby qualify for the KO Stage with a Group game to go.
    It was a stuttering 1st half which nevertheless ended level (Goldson header and Tavernier penalty) and was decided by Arfield's well worked 2nd half winner. Standard Liege played well throughout whereas it was a game of two halves for Rangers. A draw would have been a fair result, but I am not complaining about the win !

    Result from Group H, Thursday 03/12/2020 : AC Milan 4-2 Celtic

  12. EPL (Premier League), Saturday 12/12/2020, KO 12:30 hours, BT Sport :

    Wolverhampton Wanderers v Aston Villa

    02/12/2020 : With the postponement of the Newcastle fixture AVFC now has ten days until our next match. This time should be used by DS to reflect on AVFC's performances to date (in a 'mini-restart') and iron out any deficiencies that have crept into our play.

  14. 01/12/2020 : The date for Rangers' League Cup tie at St Mirren has been announced today.

    Rangers Football Club @RangersFC
    FIXTURE UPDATE: St Mirren v Rangers | Wednesday 16th December | 8pm (UK)

    Unfortunately this match will not be on RTV in UK/ROI as once again, Premier Sports have the broadcast.

  15. 01/12/2020 : Due to an outbreak of Covid-19 at Newcastle United, our EPL game scheduled for this Friday, 4th December, Aston Villa v Newcastle United, has been postponed.

    We now have two postponed games, with both awaiting re-arranged dates.

    Sat 12th September : Manchester City v Aston Villa - Postponed : Man City Euros.
    Fri 04th December : Aston Villa v Newcastle United - (Sat 05th) - Postponed 01/12/2020, Covid-19 at Newcastle.

  16. EPL (Premier League), Monday 30/11/2020 : West Ham United 2-1 Aston Villa

    I followed this on the radio. West Ham won through two sucker punches, one at the start of each half. Grealish equalised their first then Watkins missed a penalty (he hit the bar) and had his late equaliser disallowed by VAR for offside.

    After this result AVFC's total Form Points fell from 71 to 63 ... that is, points after 38 games.
    The maximum available fell to 102 points, with 87 points left to play for.
    AVFC are above par and 10th in the table, with 15 points and GD at +7 from 9 games.
