Having read the recent bout of Canvey fan bashing on this board and their whinging replies images/icons/wink.gif" border="0 <p>I wonder what team/fans now constitutes the Man Utd of this division. By this I mean the team everybody wants to beat, ( be it due to the team/manager/arrogant fans )<p>I think it must be getting slightly closer in running between the Island ( I think mainly due to their success) and the Shots ( 'Cos our rightful place is in the Football League, not with you Mickey Mouse sides' fans..)<p>Or are the Fleet & Ricky also contenders. Or maybe it's some other bunch ???

good one
shots have to be the man city.. big fan base but always losing out to close neighbours..
the fleet will be burnley.. good once a while back and moving in the right direction again..
canvey will be blackburn of course..
riccay have to be blackpool, used to be better than their neighbours but are now [****!!****].
braintree ill put in the millwall slot.not cos of the crowd but moving steadily uphill..
bedford..wolves sleeping giants

Blackburn - Yes, I can certainly see that, from the Jack Walker era.<p>Like the Blackpool reference. <img src="graemlins/newlaugh.gif" border="0" alt="[newlaugh]" />

Surely Canvey are Fulham - fat bloke nobody likes throwing money at a club nobody outside of their square mile gives a sh*t about?<p>Aldershot can be Leeds - Everybodies picking on us<p>Gravesend are Arsenal - will win the league.<p>Billericay are Liverpool (in my dreams) - started well but have faded badly in recent weeks. Actually maybe more like Bolton....<p>Harrow = Derby -might as well give up now.<p>Bedford Are Southampton - Shiny new ground (well fairly new in Bedford's case) but at wrong end of league. Everybody would be sorry to see them drop though like Soton.<p>Getting back to Chis' origianl point, who are the team Billericay want to beat? Anybody at the moment! <img src="graemlins/round.gif" border="0" alt="[round]" />

Surely Canvey are the Man U - they've got a lairy up himself manager, all the money, all the big name players, and still won't win the league <img src="graemlins/icon25.gif" border="0" alt="[icon25]" />

sorry chaps but canvey pale into insignificance compared to the new big boys in ryman P.
... all those years of slating canvey for buying success and our very own billericay lay their hands on 6 million (yup a six and six zeros) quid to do the ground up...there we are scrabbling around for 100 grand of t.v. money and up there on the hill the boys in blue are rolling in it..
any chance we can have some left overs after you've finished the 8,000 all seater?..
actually what kind of ground does 6 mill get you these days anyone know?.. perhaps thats why the squads up for sale, old calder has lined up thr burnley squad to come in for next season...
there is only one 'man u' in the ryman and its billericay!!!....also gazza did you go to the forum?.....more money than god<p>[ 15 January 2002: This message was edited by: CANV ]<p>[ 15 January 2002: This message was edited by: CANV ]</p>

Blackpool to Man Utd in 5 easy steps! Can't be bad.<p>Notice though the key phrase "if the council give the go ahead". And remeber we're talking about basildon council here.

Basildon Council hate Billericay.<p>What'll happen is they'll propose another site in Basildon and then we'll be known as Billadon United or Basericay Town.<p>And then we'll all have to travel to Basildon to see the team until we get chessed off with that and form a new Billericay Town FC to play in the Essex Senior League.<p>Typically it'll be another Basidon "We can't miss out on this oportunity, so we'll climb on the successful back of Billericay" Council **** up!!!

I never said that it was. It was said in context of Basildon Town Council nicking Billericay Towns plans for improvement.<p>Power to your team though. Well impressed
