I think we all have an idea of where the squad needs beefing up but due to the total lack of interest from the folk on the island apart from the 200 - 300 supporters that currently come through the gate we will never be in a position to afford these quality players we all go on about, russ was the perfect example of that. It is up to these players to really step up to the plate and show us the sort of performances we know they have in them.
I think you hit the nail on the head, the biggest problem with Canvey and Canvey people is apathy. People never know what they have got until they lose it.
As a non islander I cant believe the lack of local pride by some sections of the community if people soon do not start showing a community spirit the island will end up like a suburb of Pitsea with all the social problems that will come with it.
Its not just football the rugby, cricket and youth clubs on the island are starving for local support and islanders are trotting down the road to Sarfend!!
