well done lads good win in crap conditions against an improving city side.. how the ref gave that penalty against wardy is beyond me.. and surely the penalty we got should have had their defender sent off.. their second goal was totally against the run of play we should have been 5-1 up by then.. and what a goal from parms!! greggors volley that went just wide in the first half was pretty tasty as well.. buzz and chenners came forward well and wardy was rock solid.. well done lads! spencer is looking good as well and i notice in the programme notes that last week we had a team out with an average age of 25..mm not bad for a bunch of alledged ex pros eh?!?

CANV, you don't think you might be just the slightest bit biased in your assessment of today's game do you? I'd say there was a team out there hanging on like no tomorrow for that final whistle to go for the last 7 minutes and it wasn't St. Albans. No question you deserved to win but the match was nowhere near as one-sided as you are making out and you know it.<p>Apart from that, good luck in the Trophy match at Yeovil.

Yes, good win. I always enjoy beating St. Albans, and this is the first time in a couple of seasons that we haven't beaten them by at least two clear goals!<p>As each player we have individually is class but can't quite bond, something needs to be looked at but bugger me if no-one can guess what it is.<p>Ash - Pulled of a few good saves, but seems to live dangerously. His kicking was less efective yesterday.<p>JK - Does this guy have a niggling injury he seems slower these past couple of weeks?<p>Spencer Knight - Very quick and positioned himself well, although his crosses got caught in the wind.<p>Cheners - Solid game at the back and looked good coming forward. What can you say a class defender.<p>Wardy - My MOM. He cleared chances off the line, and out run the Saints forwards. Very solid.<p>Buzz - He got forward quite a lot too. Brought thr ball with him too. Thought he had the chance to score another 'Port Vale' yesterday.<p>Lee Boylan - Converted the penalty well and chased every chance. Could've got a couple more today if the wind wasn't so strong.<p>Stimmo - Was ok in middle. Put together some nice touches but seemed to lack his flare and skill.<p>Greggors - Another good goal and had should have scored more too. He seems to be able to put the ball about well like an Attacking Midfielder.<p>Millsie - Well a bit like Stimmo today, he held on to the ball to long on a few occasions. But seemed from my angle offside for our 2nd goal.<p>Parms - Cracking goal, he's been waiting for one of them for a while, looks more comfortable after an unsettled patch.<p>Cobby - Looked hungry when he came on could have got a couple if the wind wasn't so hard too.<p>Ashley Nicholls - Good to see he can play anywhere in the middle. Not as effective as he has been but still, didn't do anything wrong.<p>Tilly - Captain's back, changed something in the team's morale when he came on. He should've had one today too. Poor Southend how they missed him! images/icons/grin.gif" border="0 <p>Well there's my opinion of our team yesterday. Still need to do a bit more digging to find our top pre-Burnley form.<p>Pumpkin.

Of course you may laugh. <p>I guess watching that mob at St Albans you get lots of laughs. Correction, lots and lots and lots of laughs. Laughing all the way to the bank, no doubt. <p>Oops, another correction. St Albans wouldn't have much to do with banks would they?<p>On a more serious note, St Albans have a lot to offer, in spite of their problems off the pitch. To be 10th in the league, in spite of having only played 24 games, is quite an achievement. If they could have played like they did in the last seven minutes for the other 83, they would be quite formidable. Canvey were really under the cosh for those dying minutes.<p>Pity you have to take all those morons with you in support. Still, I was in the VI form myself once and I guess I was just as bad.<p>Merv CIFC

Possibly cause someone close to them have been reading our boards, and were worried just incase you did bring flares and have a good piss-up!<p>Pumpkin

A pal of mine who couldn't get down to the match on Saturday tuned into BBC Radio Essex who announced that there were four van loads of the local constabulary on standby at the match due to intelligence (?) which suggested there might have been trouble due to aggressive messages on the internet. I've heard it all now. <p> <img src="graemlins/dark3.gif" border="0" alt="dark3" />

Correct me if I am wrong but didn't the police have to be called out at the last home game against St. Albans when a few of the 'idiots' decided it would be more fun to start trouble inside the ground.<p>Actions like knocking items off shelves in the bar, threatening innocent Canvey fans with physical violence, and generaly giving a bad name to SACFC, tend to attract the Police in greater numbers at a future clash.<p>Discussion boards are read by all sorts of people, I can assure you that the police have people dedicated to reading football forums, at almost every level.<p>If something had of kicked off, and the police had not have been there, and an injury or worse occurred - would we not then be saying 'Why wasn't the police there just in case!'<p>It seems that we cannot win.<p>When you have so called 'supporters' coming onto an opponents board, linking to a page, that contains threats of violence, and boasting at previous acts of criminal behaviour, what do you expect the club / police to do?<p>Really you need to sort out these idiots who give SACFC a bad name, one that your directors would rather distance themselves from.<p>PC999

What about your stewards then? Why have stewards if you have the police? Why have the police if you have stewards? And why have 3/4 police vans, instead of 1?

I must agree with Pumkins assesment of the game. A few of us have also thought that for one reason or another JK seems to be lacking a bit of his pace (I am not fauting his work rate though). Can I also say that personaly I have not seen gregors so up for games as he has for last couple.<p>Tily also looked very hungry and we all know how good he is, Look at our scoring chart and that tells you everything about the class of the man.<p>All in all a great game and another well deserved 3 points all though the last few minutes were as hairy as that St Albams supporters Jacket.

have to admit that the presence of so many OB was truly baffling...
If I'd paid my rates in Essex I'd be a trifle concerned LOL<p>without a doubt you deserved the win,
that was never in any doubt, though had to have a chuckle at a few of yours after the final whistle...

i saw a couple of vans on the way in but only one pretty friendly looking officer inside the ground.. there was some trouble last time which was mentioned on the various message boards so there you go.. if a steward got heavy handed there would be all hell to pay so the police were there.. such is life in todays world of legal action..

What a load of toss you are GHA.
Can I remind you of the notice posted on our MB you directed us to:-
"
This coming Saturday 23rd Febuary, St.Albans City play away to FA trophy holders, FA Cup giantkillers and uneducated simpletons Canvey Island.
This is traditionally a very drunken abusive away trip for the firm and would apppreicate any memebers of the team to join. We have no game on Sunday so the old I'm getting my head down early for the big match excuse won't wash.
Highlights of the last trip to Canvey included excessive drink and drug taking.
"
It goes on as you know boasting and promoting violence, and then you wonder why a Police presence was necassary!
I together with 99pct of other NL football fans watch NL football because its grass roots football with the added bonus of enjoying a relaxed beer before, during and after the game.
Its the 1pct we need to get rid of and the sooner St. Albans folds in my opinion the better for the rest of the RPL fans.

The message left by one Colin Zeal (I think his name is). If you can't see that this is a joke, then maybe you should go an have your eyes tested. What most people don't realise is that all the EFM do is joke about violence etc. I have only ever witnessed one occasion when the EFM have been involved in any trouble on the terraces, and on that occassion they were heading in the opposite direction.
Also, maybe the club could do somthing about where the supporters stand in the ground. It probably isn't a good idea to have both sets of fans behind the goal. I know this isn't any excuse if there is trouble, if a minority of fans want to behave in this way nothing is going to stop them, but as we know, fans all over the country will chant songs that are aimed to tanut opposition supporters, and having the fans that it is aimed only a few yards away it is just asking for problems. And anothere idea, have a few more stewards who arn't 2 feet tall, little children don't really give an intimidating sense of authority do they.
Oh and is your ground conference standard, cause if it is then maybe Croydon's is too.
