  1. EPL (Premier League), Sunday 05/07/2020 : Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa The result that most expected but not the drubbing that many had feared. Indeed it is unfortunate that it ended 2-0 from a virtually last-minute goal, after it had taken Liverpool 71 minutes to score their opener. After this result AVFC's total Form Points fell from 32 to 31 ... that is, points after 38 games. The maximum available is now 42 points, with 15 points left to play for. AVFC are below par and 18th in the table, with 27 points and GD at -26 from 33 games.
  2. 04/07/2020 : AVFC's final three matches in July now have fixture changes to suit TV too. July 2020 Sun 05/07/2020 : Liverpool 16:30 Aston Villa - SKY Thu 09/07/2020 : Aston Villa 20:15 Manchester United - SKY Sun 12/07/2020 : Aston Villa 14:15 Crystal Palace - SKY Thu 16/07/2020 : Everton 18:00 Aston Villa - Date & KO time - SKY Tue 21/07/2020 : Aston Villa 20:15 Arsenal - Date & KO time - SKY Sun 26/07/2020 : West Ham United 16:00 Aston Villa - KO time - TV ?
  3. I have been asked this question on my Rangers forum; English Footy News there is like our Scottish Football thread here. My reply (or non-reply, really !) : Going into July, AVFC's total Form Points are 32 ... that is, points after 38 games. The maximum available is now 45 points, with 18 points left to play for. AVFC are below par and 19th in the table, with 27 points and GD at -24 from 32 games. Edit 03/07/2020 : AVFC up to 18th after all teams had played 32 matches. Below are AVFC's remaining games and my guess as to how many points AVFC may get per game. The total i
  4. 28/06/2020 : FA Cup 7th Round (SF) Draw (alpha sorted) : Arsenal v Manchester City Manchester United v Chelsea Both Semi-Finals and the Final will be played at Wembley, sans fans. The Semi-Finals on the weekend of July 18th & 19th and the Final on Saturday August 1st. (FA website)
  5. EPL (Premier League), Sunday 05/07/2020 : Liverpool v Aston Villa, KO 16:30 hours, SKY. 28/06/2020 : A week today AVFC visit the new EPL Champions, an honour Liverpool have earned well and thoroughly deserve. Now from fact to fantasy, my Prediction (in Prediction League), made today : Liverpool 1-2 Aston Villa
  6. EPL (Premier League), Saturday 27/06/2020 : Aston Villa 0-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers After this result AVFC's total Form Points fell from 33 to 32 ... that is, points after 38 games. The maximum available is now 45 points, with 18 points left to play for. AVFC are below par and 19th in the table, with 27 points and GD at -24 from 32 games.
  7. EPL (Premier League), Saturday 27/06/2020 : Aston Villa 0-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers Alas my optimism, hopes, were dashed today. We do not lack effort, we lack direction, going circular instead of forward.
  8. EPL (Premier League), Saturday 27/06/2020 : Aston Villa v Wolverhampton Wanderers, KO 12:30 hours, BT Sport. 27/06/2020 : I hope to witness AVFC taking this game to our opponents today and get the win that is so much needed ! Prediction (in Prediction League), made today : Aston Villa 2-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
  9. EPL (Premier League), Wednesday 24/06/2020 : Newcastle United 1-1 Aston Villa After this result AVFC's total Form Points remained at 33 ... that is, points after 38 games. The maximum available is now 48 points, with 21 points left to play for. AVFC are below par and 19th in the table, with 27 points and GD at -23 from 31 games. Also, AVFC missed out on getting our first double of the Season today.
  10. EPL (Premier League), Wednesday 24/06/2020 : Newcastle United 1-1 Aston Villa Not much of a match, we had the most chances early on but failed to convert any. NUFC's 2nd half opener was gifted, our defence was AWOL. Fortunately Elmohamady equalised late on from Hourihane's corner to save a point, but it is wins that we need. We are holding back too much and not pressurising our opponents; with some extra effort we could have won this game.
  11. EPL (Premier League), Wednesday 24/06/2020 : Newcastle United v Aston Villa, KO 18:00 hours - BT Sport. 24/06/2020 : As this match is on BT Sport I will be able to see all of this match live. I hope it will not be 90+ wasted minutes of my time ! Prediction (in Prediction League), made today : Newcastle United 0-1 Aston Villa
  12. EPL (Premier League), Sunday 21/06/2020 : Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea After this result AVFC's total Form Points fell from 34 to 33 ... that is, points after 38 games. The maximum available is now 50 points, with 24 points left to play for. AVFC are below par and 19th in the table, with 26 points and GD at -23 from 30 games. This was AVFC's 6th conceded Double too.
  13. EPL (Premier League), Sunday 21/06/2020 : Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea AVFC seem to have played this game Steve Bruce style today, with the usual non-result. This despite taking a half-time lead, but losing after taking the lead was common in SB style games too. Not good enough !
  14. 21/06/2020 : 'Avstu cannot receive messages', so I am posting the PM I have just composed here instead. Americanisms Stu, Can you correct the date format on AVillaFan. It is currently showing the date in the USA format, MM-DD-CCYY. The correct format is DD-MM-CCYY as in 21-06-2020 and if it is to be shown in reverse it would be 2020-06-21 for today's date. Other Americanisms I have noticed are 'curb' instead of 'kerb' in the Jack Grealish arrest article and regarding cars, it is 'tyre' not 'tire' ... the latter applies for when we lose energy and has nothing to do with
  15. 19/06/2020 : Regarding Sheffield United's 'ghost goal', I commented about it yesterday in the Telegraph thus : The basic fault is the lop-sided camera arrangement, which I posted about on my football forum when cameras were first introduced. There should be two cameras to cover each goalline, from both wings. Doing this would raise the total cameras from 7 to 9 and provide total coverage of each goalline.

  16. EPL (Premier League), Sunday 21/06/2020 : Aston Villa v Chelsea, KO 16:15 hours, SKY. 19/06/2020 : I do not share DV's optimism about this game, but I have gone for my default prediction nevertheless. Prediction (in Prediction League), made today : Aston Villa 2-1 Chelsea

    18/06/2020 : Stu, your PM box is full so this is what I tried to send you. Stu, I see you have marked your Covid-19 thread for deletion ! Why is this, or did you just mean to delete a post within it instead ? Accidentally deleting a thread when just meaning to delete a post within the thread is easily done. I nearly did that myself the other day with my League Cup thread, when zapping a spammer. There are too many posts of quality (Dimitri apart !) in the Covid-19 thread. You could lock it instead if you feel its purpose, how should football deal with coronavirus, has

The maximum available is now 53 points, with 27 points left to play for. AVFC are below par and 19th in the table, with 26 points and GD at -22 from 29 games.
  21. EPL (Premier League), Wednesday 17/06/2020 : Aston Villa 0-0 Sheffield United No change for AVFC after this result, still 19th. We have to hope the restarted Season is completed now and we take our chances to get out of the bottom three ! * * I see the same thought has occurred to Dimitri !

  25. EPL (Premier League), Wednesday 17/06/2020 : Aston Villa v Sheffield United, KO 18:00 hours, SKY. 15/06/2020 : That old cliche, 'a must win game', certainly applies here. I was briefly tempted to predict against AVFC on the basis that whatever I predicted would be wrong(!), but have stuck with my default score instead. Here's hoping for that win ! Prediction (in Prediction League), made today : Aston Villa 2-1 Sheffield United
