i could understand the odd bit of bitching and pre and post match banter but at every oppertunity its a canvey bashing free for all.. what did we ever do to deserve such animosity...sure i can understand local rivalry but you see very little riccay and no grays braintree heybridge etc slagging off on here..i dont even recall a G and N bashing session, yet on their board they talk of us in less than glowing terms.. we are the fans not the floodlight engineers... we have never proclaimed our ground is anything other than a jumped up essex senior patch of grass (mind you if it is so **** , strange that we have the second highest attendance average in the league).. and i think its safe to say most of our fans want to see good football and by and large we play it... sure there will be occasions when it all goes **** up, i for one didn't rate our players in the last fifteen against G and N but overall canvey play football..the only clubs fans that ever say much complimentary are the shots boys...
now to make a few points clear
1. im not one of your sharing caring sensitive souls whos cares about other people opinions
2. i am talking here about the stuff that is posted over the course of a season not b4 and after important matches
3. and i appreciate certain individuals may have certain personnal issues that affect thier opinions
i just cant believe that we have never really got any issues with other clubs fans but lots of them have with us.. i can understand a resentment of 'alledged' suger daddied success, but we draw as good or better crowds now than anyone after the shots.. the K's fans were more than happy to see the fleet go above us.. would such gloating have occured if they had beaten the fleet, i dont think so, and what have ourselves and the K's got to beef about?..
i am sometime truly confused ,taking the above exceptions apart as to what the big deal is..we are only the fans that want to see our club succeed and play good football <img src="graemlins/images/icons/cool.gif" border="0" alt="" />
