  1. 23/09/2020 23:00 : Once again having left AVF whilst logged in and then closed FF, on opening FF and returning to AVF I have had to go through the rigmarole of logging in, getting rejected (twice) then going to the Forum Community Page, where I find I am logged in. The URL on my Bookmark for AVF is identical to the URL shown in the Forum, but instead of opening the Forum with me logged in, something (wtf what?) is redirecting my login URL to the AVF main page with me logged out. It has been doing this since AVF returned following the hack attack and therefore precedes the upgrades being m
  2. Good question ... it is missing, but it used to be on a button above the 'Submit Reply' button.
  3. That is a long awaited correction ! Can you get the post Preview function to work, currently it just shows a blank box. Cheers.
  4. No problems Stu and thanks for your swift response to my request.
  5. Stu, Can you put the info bar (at the top of the screen) back to where it was, right justified. This sudden change to left justified means its gets in the way of thread titles and post data.
  6. Moved AVFC (test) Test : AVFC retest : AVFC Test : AVFC Test again : AVFC ... and again : AVFC Checking. 21/10/2020 : The 'AVFC' items I added after my original posting on 23/09/2020 showed the control characters as text, until I updated this post today, where they have worked.
  7. 23/09/2020 : AVFC have announced two more fixture changes today. 02 : Mon 28/09/2020 : Fulham 17:45 Aston Villa - SKY (Sat 26/09/2020) & 23/09/2020 KO time changed 03 : Sun 04/10/2020 : Aston Villa 19:15 Liverpool - SKY (Sat 03/10/2020)
  8. Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round, Thursday 24/09/2020 : Willem II (Ned) v Rangers, KO 20:00 hours, RTV. 23/09/2020 : Despite the problems RTV had with Lincoln Red Imps, I have persevered and purchased this match today (£9.99) which, per Rangers' website, will be exclusively live on RTV tomorrow.

    23/09/2020 : How quickly things can change, from the optimism following that Brighton v Chelsea friendly, to now. What seems to be overlooked is that regarding Covid-19, nothing has changed, the virus has not disappeared. Nothing will change either, until an effective vaccine has been created and administered.

  10. 23/09/2020 15:04 : I had the same thing happen when I returned to post the Prediction League Tables this afternoon.
  11. 23/09/2020 : Prediction League Table for Game 01, Wk01 (Sheffield United). 25/09/2020 : Due to a Typo I have REPOSTED my original table for this game onto Twitter under #AVLPL, new link below. To view the Table click on the link below then click again to enlarge the image to full size. Table Sorted by Player Name (ascending) within From (ascending) within Played (descending) within Score (descending) within Total (descending). Wk01 shows who played in this game (Y or N); there were 25 active participants out of 25 players this time. Previous Players who have not played yet are sh
  12. 23/09/2020 01:42 : I do not know WTF is going on, but I closed Firefox with me logged into AVF yesterday and I opened FF to visit AVF again just now. AVF came up but with me NOT logged in and I could not get back in either. I then messaged Stu on Twitter about this. Rather than leave things there, I decided to try to log in again. This time I had the same rejection but then went to the 'Contact Us' page and sent the message - I cannot log in' - and then I find my login has been accepted. I will log out of FF with me logged into AVF ... and see what happens when I return later today.

  14. League Cup Third Round : Thursday 24/09/2020 : Bristol City v Aston Villa, KO 19:00 hours. 22/09/2020 : A game AVFC as an EPL Club are expected to win, so let us see this fixture through as expected. Fourth Round, winners home to : Stoke City or Gillingham - Killum, Gillum ! - personal bias, my Kentish roots. Prediction (in Prediction League), made today : Bristol City 0-3 Aston Villa
  15. Thanks for setting-up this thread whilst I was locked out, Stu. Bristol City 0-3 Aston Villa
  16. 22/09/2020 : Thanks for your efforts in getting the Site back up, Stu. As you can see from this post, I have finally been able to log back in (after all the earlier hassles).
  17. 22/09/2020 : I am back in to AVF, Finally ! EPL (Premier League), Monday 21/09/2020 : Aston Villa 1-0 Sheffield United I had to rely on the SSN Live Commentary and my Twitter feed for this match. The latter showed Martinez's 36th minute penalty save and Konsa's 63rd minute goal, which delivered the victory tonight. The Blades received an early yellow card for a foul on Grealish and a red card for denial of a goal-scoring opportunity, reducing them to 10 men from the 12th minute onwards. That early yellow card was welcome, too many opponents think they can beat AVFC by fouling JG
  18. 20/09/2020 : 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 Third qualifying round : Thursday 24/09/2020 Hapoel Beer-Sheva (ISR) 3-0 Motherwell Riga (LVA) 0-1 Celtic Sheriff Tiraspol (MDA) 1-1 Dundalk - FT & AET, Dundalk 5-3 on penalties. Shkëndija Tetovo (MKD) 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur Sporting Lisbon (POR) 1-0 Aberdeen Willem II (NED) 0-4 Rangers This season all qualifying ties will be single-leg matches behind closed doors with extra time and a pena
  19. Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round, Thursday 24/09/2020 : Willem II (Ned) v Rangers, KO 20:00 hours, RTV - including UK/ROI. 20/09/2020 : I checked out our opponents' name and share my findings and sources below. Rangers' opponents are named after King William II of the Netherlands (born in 1792 and Reigned from 1840 to 1849) and were formerly known as Tilburg. They are not named after William II, Prince of Orange, nor after his son King William III (William II in Scotland), who Reigned in Great Britain from 1688 to 1704 and is known colloquially as 'King Billy'.

  20. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 20/09/2020 : Hibernian 2-2 Rangers Per Sportsound and my Twitter feed today. Rangers missed early chances then fell behind after 22 minutes, but equalised (Morelos) at the end of the 1st half. Arfield gave us a 2nd half lead, but Hibernian equalised (offside not given) and it ended level. So we play 7 games before conceding a goal, then two come along at once. Back on top of the table, but two points dropped. SPL matches, 19-20/09/2020 : Saturday 19th September Celtic 3-2 Livingston Dundee United 2-1 St Mirren Kilmarnock 2-1 Hamilton Academical St John
  21. 19/09/2020 : Traore has now signed for AVFC, on a 4 year deal ... his Chelsea connection to John Terry probably helped !

  23. EPL (Premier League), Monday 21/09/2020 : Aston Villa v Sheffield United, KO 18:00 hours, SKY. 18/09/2020 : Stu has posted this fixture in the Prediction League, so I return the favour by posting the match thread here ! We see AVFC start the EPL campaign one week behind all the other teams due to the postponement of our opening game at Man City ... no info as to when that game will be played, atm. Let us see AVFC start with a win on Monday, setting the stage for a successful Season with the minimum league target of a top ten place ... and all the way in the Cups ! Prediction
