  2. 17/09/2020 : The League Cup 4th Round Draw was made today, giving AVFC a Home fixture if we win at Bristol City next week.

  3. Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round Thursday, 17/09/2020 : Lincoln Red Imps (Gib) 0-5 Rangers That was a comprehensive victory in what had all the atmosphere of a training match. The goals came from Tavernier, Goldson, Morelos, Defoe and finally Morelos again. The game and result far exceeded the quality of the video, which was like watching an illegal stream. It had blocking, smearing, false colouring, buffering interrupts both video and audio, all capped by a blue screen blackout just as Defoe scored our 4th goal ... RTV must do better ! I had purchased this match earlier today but
  4. 16/09/2020 : The 4 year deal for goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez has been done today.
  5. 15/09/2020 : This day cannot pass without comment, it being the 80th Anniversary of Battle of Britain Day. I said in my post about VE Day that we held the line for Liberty ... the 'we' is true for us as a Nation, but it was they, the Few, backed up by the many support staff, who actually held that line. We today are forever in their debt.
  6. It should be nothing less than restoring AVFC to its No:1 position in English football. If that is not the ambition then it will not be good enough.
  7. Football League Cup Round Two (North), Tuesday 15/09/2020 : Burton Albion 1-3 Aston Villa Banana skin avoided, goals from Watkins, Grealish (a belter!) and Davis took AVFC from 0-1 down to 3-1 up. Our Third Round opponents play tomorrow, I will update their score in this post. Update 16/09/2020 : FLC Round Two (South) : Bristol City 4-0 Northampton Town
  8. Yes, either as a member of AVillaFan or as a Twitter player, but not both. Each player can only have one online Username.
  9. 15/09/2020 : The AVF Prediction League for Season 2020-2021 will start from Monday 21st September with our EPL game, Aston Villa v Sheffield United. I was not sure if we were going to run the PL this Season as Stu had issued a tweet on September 5th inviting participation in the Super 6 competition on SKY and had retweeted this on September 11th too. However, Stu sent me a PM yesterday asking if I was prepared to run the PL for 2020-2021, so we will go again but as I said, from September 21st, which means our League Cup match at Burton Albion today will not be covered. As befor
  10. 14/09/2020 : Final Table from the 2019-2020 Prediction League.
  11. Stu has not been on AVF since last Tuesday, so here is the match thread. Football League Cup Round Two (North), Tuesday 15/09/2020 : Burton Albion v Aston Villa, KO 19:45 hours, SKY. 13/09/2020 : All of these League Cup games are one-offs with if needed, no extra time, just penalties to get a result. Due to the postponement of our EPL game at Man City yesterday, this is AVFC's first game of Season 2020-2021 and as ever with Cup games like this, is a proverbial banana skin. The winners of this tie will meet the winners of the tie shown below in the third round next week. F
  12. 13/09/2020 : Two 'bounce' games and two victories for AVFC, 3-2 on 05/09/2020 at Arsenal and yesterday 1-0 against Man United. Let us see these results repeated in the EPL, that will be the true test. Aston Villa @AVFCOfficial Ollie Watkins scored the only goal as our pre-season schedule was completed with a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Villa Park!
  13. Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round Thursday, 17/09/2020 : Lincoln Red Imps (Gib) v Rangers, KO 16:00 hours - RTV. 13/09/2020 : Rangers (sans Fans) travel to Gibraltar for this one-off match while RTV will cover it worldwide from Ibrox. If needed, there will be extra time and penalties to determine the result. Rangers' Third Qualifying Round opponents will be one of the two shown below, but let us get through this one first. We should progress on Thursday, but stranger things have happened ! Update 16/09/2020 : Europa Lge 2nd QR : Progres Niederkorn (Lux) 0-5 Willem II (NED
  14.

  16. 10/09/2020 : Update. Rangers v Dundee United will be live on RTV worldwide on 12/09/2020 and I have purchased the match today (£9.99).
  17. 09/09/2020 : Ollie Watkins' deal is for 5 years, when he will be 29 yo. Let us trust he does for AVFC what he has done for his previous clubs and thereby earns extensions to this deal. Welcome to AVFC, Ollie Watkins.
  18. 08/09/2020 : SSN have reported tonight that Ollie Watkins will be having a medical at AVFC tomorrow.
  19. UEFA Nations League Group A2 : Tuesday 8th September : Denmark 0-0 England Well, Jack did come on as a Sub on 76 minutes. But will he be given another opportunity ?
  20. Interesting background information below on Ollie Watkins, Dorset, 'psychological repositioning'. This was at Exeter City, where he started his career before moving to Brentford ... and now hopefully to AVFC. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11688/12038340/ollie-watkins-psychological-repositioning-under-paul-tisdale
  21. SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 12/09/2020 : Rangers v Dundee United, KO 15:00 hours. 08/09/2020 : Per Rangers' website this match will be on RTV.

  22. Either it is lazy journalism, or maybe AVFC is copying Russian tactics ... Mazkarovka - deception policies ... ... to put the journalists off the scent.
  23. UEFA Nations League Group B2 Monday 7th September : Czech Republic 1-2 Scotland
  24. Update 07/09/2020 : AVFC on SKY Aston Villa's match against Burton will begin Sky Sports' live League Cup coverage for the week when they travel to Burton on Tuesday 15 September with a 7.45pm kick-off.
