    EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 18/03/2017 : Wigan Athletic v Aston Villa, KO 15:00 hours.

    Let us trust that AVFC's recent improvement in form (4 wins in 5 matches) continues at Wigan this Saturday.

    My AVF prediction, made on 15/03/2017 (today) : Wigan Athletic 1-2 Aston Villa

    EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 18/03/2017 : Wigan Athletic 0-2 Aston Villa

    This is more like it, 5 wins in 6 matches now and only one goal conceded. Think of this as Aston Villa's Battle of Midway. AVFC are 12th with 51 points, the GD is zero and the gaps to the play-offs and the drop zone are 11 points each. I expect the former gap to shrink as the other gap grows.
    AVFC's goalscorers today were J Chester (73) and S Hogan (84).

    The goal attempts were 7-8 & 6-6 = 13-14 (Bannockburn!), but the ones that mattered were 2-0, making this AVFC's 6th win in the last 7 games. AVFC are now 11th, 10 points off the play-offs and 14 points clear of the drop zone.

    EFL1 (Championship), Tuesday 04/04/2017 : Aston Villa v Queens Park Rangers, KO 19:45 hours.

    03/04/2017 : For the third time this Season AVFC has the opportunity to get 4 consecutive wins, so let our lads make it 'third time lucky' ... although I trust it to be down to good organised play rather than luck.
    This is the first of 5 games where AVFC can do the double over the opposition, which of course means we have already beaten them once.

    My AVF prediction, made on 02/04/2017 : Aston Villa 2-1 Queens Park Rangers

    Another positive result tonight, making it four consecutive wins, five consecutive home wins and the third double of the Season for AVFC.
    The goal attempts were 11-5 to AVFC, who remain 11th in the table, now with 57 points, which is 9 short of the play-offs and 17 clear of the drop zone.

    The goal attempts were 2-3 & 4-7 = 6-10 to AVFC ... but it was two points dropped today, which could be costly.

    Attendance : 6,716 (SSN)

    After this result AVFC's total Form Points fell by 1 to 65 ... that is, points after 46 games.
    The maximum available as of now is 73 points, with 15 points to play for.
    AVFC stay above par with GD still +3 and stay 11th, now with 58 points.

    The gap to the play-offs is still 9 points and the gap to the drop zone is now 18 points, which means Aston Villa cannot be relegated.

    13/04/2017 : This is another match where AVFC can do the 'double' over the opposition.

    My AVF prediction, made on 13/04/2017 (today) : Aston Villa 2-1 Reading

    I finally received a ticket EMail from AVFC today ... there was one seat left in Upper Trinity Row A ... but not now, I have booked it !
    Sod's Law has dictated that AVFC v BCFC and the SFA Cup Semi-Final Celtic v Rangers are both on St George's Day and both KO at 12:00 hours. No worries, I will watch the Semi-Final later, on my RTV account, hopefully celebrating a double win as I do so.

    Both of the stream links I posted today were duff so I had to rely on Jeff Stelling and Co to keep me up to date with the games today. We are still waiting to see AVFC win 5 games in a row but more importantly, the combination of results last week and this means that Aston Villa cannot reach the play-off places.
    After this result AVFC's total Form Points fell by 1 to 64 ... that is, points after 46 games.
    The maximum available as of now is 70 points, with 12 points to play for.
    AVFC stay above par with GD now +1, but slipped to 12th in the table.

    That is two consecutive 1-3 defeats now, in a winless run of 3 games ... this has been a Jekyll & Hyde season. It was a good equaliser from Grealish, but these events are all too rare !
    After this result AVFC's total Form Points fell by 2 to 62 ... that is, points after 46 games.
    The maximum available as of now is 67 points, with 9 points left to play for.
    AVFC drop to level par with GD now -1, but stay 12th in the table on 58 points.

    This match is overshadowed by the early and untimely death aged 44 of former Aston Villa centre-half Ugo Ehiogu, R.I.P.

    Watching the game from Upper Trinity Row A, I was thinking that this was drifting to a 0-0 under the 'Old Pals Act' ... until Steve Bruce introduced Gabby Agbonlahor on 58 minutes, afterwhich the game exploded into life and Gabby scored the winner too. My man of the match though was Jedinak, who seemed to be everywhere and Hutton had a good game too. The attacking tactics need to change as Scott Hogan was alone up front and always had to contend with 2 or 3 opposition defenders, with no teammate to pass the ball to. No wonder he finds scoring difficult !
    After this result AVFC's total Form Points rose by 2 to 64 ... that is, points after 46 games.
    The maximum available remains at 67 points, with 6 points left to play for.
    AVFC go above par again, with GD now 0 and retain 12th place, on 61 points.

    EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 29/04/2017 : Blackburn Rovers v Aston Villa, KO 15:00 hours.

    27/04/2017 : Many Villa Fans are hoping AVFC will lose this game and see Blackburn escape relegation at the expense of Birmingham City in consequence. I say, be careful what you wish for; if Villa lose and Birmingham win their match, then all that really matters is that AVFC will have dropped 3 points. I want Aston Villa to win this match, like I want AVFC to win every match, irrespective of the situation the opposition are in, or whatever predicament the Dummies find themselves in.

    The stream was stuttering in the 1st half, but worked better in the 2nd half. The defeat some Villa Fans wanted happened, but elsewhere BCFC won their match 2-0, so AVFC has gained no benefit whatsoever from the results today. AVFC remain 12th, with GD now -1, on 61 points.
    Despite lots of possession AVFC failed to utilise it positively, passing square and back instead of advancing, which is no way to score goals and win matches.

    I have just checked the AVFC website, the Upper Trinity is closed, so I will not be attending this match.
