  1. 06/09/2020 : The Draws for the Second and Third Rounds of the League Cup have been made today. Last season's runners-up Aston Villa are away to Burton Albion in the Second Round (North Section). Second-round ties are to be played the week commencing September 14 with third-round matches the following week. Per AVFC today : 'The tie will take place either September 15/16.' Third Round : Bristol City or Northampton Town v Burton Albion or Aston Villa Second Round Draw North (alpha sorted) Bradford City v Lincoln City Burnley v Sheffield United Burton Albion v Aston Villa
  2. UEFA Nations League Group A2 : Saturday 5th September : Iceland 0-1 England No surprise today, Jack stayed on the bench.
  3. 05/09/2020 : Rangers have just advised that our Europa game against Lincoln Red Imps on September 17th will be shown live on RTV worldwide. Further details to follow.
  4. UEFA Nations League Group B2 Friday 4th September : Scotland 1-1 Israel
  5. This is a thread for International Football, Dimitri, not international politics. Your post now is in a more fitting location.
  6. 03/09/2020 : Christophe, I have created my own Football League on my computer (years ago) and have experience of creating league fixtures. Ideally the sequence for each team would be a Home Away or Away Home alternating sequence throughout the Season. However, that is mathematically impossible to achieve. The best that can be done is for all teams to have one of those alternating sequences, but with two consecutive Home and/or two consecutive Away fixtures interspersed. The alternating sequence can be maintained with a 4 team league but problems arise with greater numbers, even if t
  7. 03/09/2020 : UEFA Nations League (all on SKY) Nations League Groups, Home teams' Groups only. Group A2 : England, Belgium, Iceland, Denmark Group B1 : Northern Ireland, Austria, Norway, Romania Group B2 : Scotland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Israel Group B4 : Wales, Ireland (ROI), Finland, Bulgaria Group D2 : Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, San Marino I will update all the scores in this post. Thursday 3rd September Bulgaria 1-1 Ireland (ROI) Finland 0-1 Wales Friday 4th September Romania 1-1 Northern Ireland Scotland 1-1 Israel Saturday 5th September Gibraltar
  8. 01/09/2020 : I think the situation with JG and England is similar to that of another JG and England ... Jimmy Greaves. In the 1966 World Cup JG was injured and could not regain his place as Sir Alf Ramsey had chosen a tactical method that JG did not fit into, unfortunately. SAR was vindicated with England winning the World Cup. Whether Gareth Southgate will get vindication for his tactical approach, which sees our JG frozen out, remains to be seen.
  9. 01/09/2020 : I do not claim prescience, but my decision to include Progres Niederkorn's fixture in the otherwise Home teams' 2nd QR fixtures has been vindicated. Third QR Draw details from the UEFA website today : Europa League Third Qualifying Round Draw : Third qualifying round ties: 24 September Champions Path Sheriff (MDA) vs Inter Escaldes (AND) or Dundalk (IRL) Riga (LVA) or Tre Fiori (SMR) vs Celtic (SCO) KÍ (ISL) vs Connah's Quay Nomads (WAL) or Dinamo Tbilisi (GEO) Djurgården (SWE) or Europa (GIB) vs CFR Cluj (ROU) Linfield (NIR) or Floriana (MLT) vs Flora Tal
  10. Thanks for creating this thread, Freddy. Have this here too, from the England Schedule thread. We can follow Jack's England exploits (assuming he is picked to play ! ) here. Let us trust our Jack returns to AVFC fully fit.
  11. 31/08/2020 : Jack Grealish (finally) called up by England today, but only due to injury withdrawals by other players. We now face the danger of our main man getting crocked whilst away !
  12. 31/08/2020 : Season 2020-2021 Euro matches (Home teams only). Fixtures and results from the UEFA website, formatting, mine. I will update all the scores in this post. Europa League 2020-2021 Second qualifying round : Wed 16/09/2020 B36 Tórshavn (FRO) 2-2 The New Saints - AET, FT 1-1 - B36 5-4 on penalties.

    COVID-19

    30/08/2020 : Optimistic conclusions from the crowd test pre 2020-2021 Season friendly at Brighton yesterday (Brighton 1-1 Chelsea). https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11661/12059691/brighton-vs-chelsea-crowd-test-encourages-premier-league-chief-richard-masters All very well, but we are not out of the woods yet and will not be until a vaccine has been produced and administered.
  14. 29/08/2020 : This is still the Charity Shield in my book. Saturday 29th August, FA Community Shield : Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool - FT & AET, Arsenal 5-4 on penalties.
  15. SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 29/08/2020 : Hamilton Academical 0-2 Rangers Another win and 6 clean sheets in a row for Rangers, equalling Celtic's 1906 record. We should have had more than the 2 goals scored today by Hagi and Tavernier, as several chances were missed. We were denied a penalty too. SPL matches, 29-30/08/2020 : Saturday 29th August Hamilton Academical 0-2 Rangers Kilmarnock 4-0 Dundee United Livingston 1-0 Ross County St Johnstone 1-0 St Mirren Sunday 30th August Celtic 3-0 Motherwell Hibernian 0-1 Aberdeen
  16. UEFA 'Champions' League 2020-2021, Second Qualifying Round : Wed 26/08/2020 : Celtic 1-2 Ferencvaros (Hungary) Normal service is maintained.
  17. 26/08/2020 : England Schedule, 2020 & 2021 I will update this schedule when further fixtures are arranged. Nations League Groups, Home teams' Groups only. Group A2 : England, Belgium, Iceland, Denmark Group B1 : Northern Ireland, Austria, Norway, Romania Group B2 : Scotland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Israel Group B4 : Wales, Ireland (ROI), Finland, Bulgaria Group D2 : Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, San Marino UEFA Nations League Saturday 5th September : Iceland 0-1 England Tuesday 8th September : Denmark 0-0 England Sunday 11th October : England 2-1 Be
  18. SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 29/08/2020 : Hamilton Academical v Rangers, KO 17:30 hours, SKY. 24/08/2020 : The Roofe (not 'Roffe'!) Itten partnership is worth continuing and I hope we see it again at Hamilton. Whether we will see Morelos again seems doubtful. In any event, let us see Rangers win again, with another clean sheet as a bonus, on Saturday. SPL matches, 29-30/08/2020 : Saturday 29th August Hamilton Academical 17:30 Rangers - SKY Kilmarnock 15:00 Dundee United Livingston 15:00 Ross County St Johnstone 15:00 St Mirren Sunday 30th August Celtic 15:00 Motherwe
  19. SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 22/08/2020 : Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock That was a much more direct performance from Rangers today, the dithering play of late was gone. It seemed a touch frantic at times, but I am not complaining. Second half goals from Roofe and Kent won this match, but there could have been more than just two today. I will update all the other scores from this weekend in this post. SPL matches, 22-23/08/2020 : Saturday 22nd August Dundee United 0-1 Celtic Motherwell 0-1 Hamilton Academical Rangers 2-0 Kilmarnock St Mirren 1-1 Ross County Sunday 23rd August
  20. 21/08/2020 : The Season 2020-2021 fixtures for the EPL and EFL have been released today. Apart from the copyright issue, there is no point posting AVFC's fixtures here as many will be moved for TV or as with our first match, postponed because our opponents are involved in Europe. Link to AVFC's fixtures on the SSN website : https://www.skysports.com/aston-villa-fixtures
  21. 21/08/2020 : The Season 2020-2021 fixtures for the EPL and EFL have been released today. These are the Tables (alpha sorted) for the top 6 levels, EPL, EFL and Conference. Level 1 (Premier League, EPL) Season 2020-2021 01 Arsenal 02 Aston Villa 03 Brighton and Hove Albion 04 Burnley 05 Chelsea 06 Crystal Palace 07 Everton 08 Fulham 09 Leeds United 10 Leicester City 11 Liverpool 12 Manchester City 13 Manchester United 14 Newcastle United 15 Sheffield United 16 Southampton 17 Tottenham Hotspur 18 West Bromwich Albion 19 West Ham Uni
  22. 21/08/2020 : These are the Season 2020-2021 Tables in Scotland (alpha sorted). I have added the Tables to the OP.
  23. SPL (SPFL1), Saturday 22/08/2020 : Rangers v Kilmarnock, KO 15:00 hours. 20/08/2020 : I have been waiting for Rangers to let us know whether we in UK/ROI will have RTV for this match, but there has been no information to date. In any event, let it be a game with goals (more than one, please) that gets Rangers back to winning ways. Update : Rangers v Kilmarnock is live on RTV in UK/ROI and I have purchased the match (£9.99) today. SPL matches, 22-23/08/2020 : Saturday 22nd August Dundee United 17:30 Celtic - SKY Motherwell 15:00 Hamilton Academical Rangers 15:00 Kilmar
  24. Some commentators have stated that Rangers are playing in the 'Liverpool' way, through the centre, Mark. From what I have seen of our games, that is true in part, but wing play is also used. I think SG does know the root cause of the problem, too many touches/passes when faster and more direct play is required. The problem is getting our players to do this ! Regarding the Opposition, I am surprised Dimitri has not posted about their result from yesterday (he is probably too busy setting up his Scottish Soviet Socialist Republic !).
