    EFL1 (Championship), Tuesday 12/09/2017 : Aston Villa 0-0 Middlesbrough

    AVFC remain 18th after this match, all of which I missed through falling asleep, thanks to my afternoon visit to the pub.
    I have seen the 'highlights' on SSN of which the less said ... Traore, Lansbury, Hogan !!! ... the better !
    Per the SSN live commentary the goal attempts were Aston Villa 18-4 Middlesbrough, which indicates one of those games where the ball was net shy.

    EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 16/09/2017 : Barnsley 0-3 Aston Villa

    A good win away which (hopefully) augurs the start of a good run for Aston Villa and not another false dawn, as was the win against Norwich City. The result today lifts AVFC to 13th in the table, with 10 points from 8 games and a GD of +1.

    Football League Cup Round 3, Tuesday 19/09/2017 : Aston Villa 0-2 Middlesbrough

    Aston Villa's interest in the League Cup this Season has been cancelled due to lack of interest.

    EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 23/09/2017 : Aston Villa v Nottingham Forest, KO 17:30 Hours, SKY.

    22/09/2017 : For AVFC this match must become a continuation of the result against Barnsley, thereby putting the League Cup diversion totally aside. Anything less will make Barnsley another false dawn and signal a repeat of post Norwich.

    Prediction, made on 22/09/2017 : Aston Villa 2-1 Nottingham Forest

    Sat 23rd September : Aston Villa 17:30 Nottingham Forest Championship, Sky Sports Football (17:15)

    This result, from a good performance overall, lifts AVFC to 10th in the table with 13 points.
    If Sheffield Wednesday lose tomorrow AVFC will go 9th on GD (and goals scored).

    EFL1 (Championship), Tuesday 26/09/2017 : Burton Albion v Aston Villa, KO 19:45 hours.

    This match, 'goals as they go in' should be covered on SSN in their S0ccer Special tonight.

    My AVF prediction : Burton Albion 1-2 Aston Villa

    EFL1 (Championship), Saturday 30/09/2017 : Aston Villa v Bolton Wanderers, KO 15:00 hours.

    28/09/2017 : AVFC's current run of good form is welcome and in stark contrast to that of Bolton, which could be dangerous. Our team must be confident and prepared, not overconfident and unprepared, else we may have a banana skin !!!
    This is the last match before the international break, normal service will resume on Saturday, October 14th.

    My AVF prediction : Aston Villa 3-1 Bolton Wanderers

    Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 Aston Villa

    Aston Villa's display was as stop-start as the stream, showing no momentum and offered virtually nothing useful in attack all match. Everything was being done tentatively and in consequence, without energy or effect.
    AVFC remain 7th after this non-result and need to improve radically to ensure that 7th becomes the base rather than the peak of our ambition.

    Good to see Aston Villa bounce straight back from the defeat last week and good to see John Terry open his goalscoring account too. JT could have doubled his contribution, but was denied by the Fulham goalkeeper.
    This win lifts AVFC up to 5th with 22 points and GD +6 from 13 games.

    07/11/2017 : My PC has been offline since October 29th, hence my absence from here ... and everywhere else too.

    EFL1 (Championship) - These results see Aston Villa in 6th place with 26 points from 16 games.

    Sunday 29/10/2017 : Birmingham City 0-0 Aston Villa

    Wednesday 01/11/2017 : Preston North End 0-2 Aston Villa

    Saturday 04/11/2017 : Aston Villa 1-2 Sheffield Wednesday

    John Terry will be out for a large chunk of the Season, having broken his right metatarsal in the last match.
