Must say I think Canvey's ground is very poor.

Obviously the nicest ground in the league is St Albans, but I also like Aylesbury, and will miss going to Gravesend. Always liked Dulwich as well.

I won't hold my breath on the new stadium Canv, and the answer to your last question is Gravesend, and not just because they pipped your lot to the title last season, I've been following them since 1998!
Mind you Gravesend gained a lot of fans last season, some opposition fans didn't even mind their own club getting beaten as long as we pipped your lot to the title, says it all really doesn't it?

And that's putting it politely Colin, jumping over the wall could be dodgy though, the wrong one and you could be in the Thames Estuary, don't know which ones worse!!!

Last time I went to Canvey, a policeman caught me climbing over the wall.

He told me to get back in and watch that crap like everyone else has to!! <img src="/forums/images/icons/wink.gif" alt="" />

Ah yes but we have never been charged £9 to get in to a non-league game!!!!!! the most I have paid is £8 at aldershot, and thay are twice as big as you lot will ever be! I'm sorry but I am going to have to boycott enfield away to you lot after the petrol to get there, beer money and and £9 to get in!!!!! BOLLOX to that! I follow the E's every were but this year not at your place!

So the other fan's have to pay for your ground then!! I thought your chairman was loaded!!!!!!

I wonder whether it would be possible to start up a "Boycott Canvey Away" campaign for every other club in the Ryman League??

Trouble is, we have SO much fun winding them up when we go there!!

riccay...local derby they will be desperate to see a riccay win at park lane before they become basildon
stortford.. first season bk in the prem so they will want to go everywhere
iron and purfleet always unlucky to lose at the lane
grays.. new team promotion faves they'll be going everywhere
chesham.. wont come anyway still to pissed off from getting done in the last minute last season depite having 105 per cent of the match..

Guess there's no real point in starting a "Boycott Canvey" campaign anyway - seems the inhabitants of the island have beaten me to it anyway!!!

Good one Mr Zeal, it would appear Canv has no answer to it!

It also happens to be true!
Are you and the Wealdstone fan new recruits in the Canvey appreciation society? Well they certainly do need all the admirers they can get!

Not at all, I just feel sorry for those fans who get their enjoyment from running down other clubs rather than give positive support to their own. Their lives must be so sad.

I'm no great admirer of Mr King and his happy band, but some of the posts on their forum are not even grown up enough to be called infantile. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cool_shades.gif" alt="" />

Disliking other teams is a big part of football Mr GNFC. Ask a Spurs fan - he hates Arsenal. Ask a Wolves fan - he hates West Brom. Ask any fan - he hates Man Utd.

I, personally, have a huge dislike for Canvey Island. I also dislike Aldershot and plenty of other clubs (Hendon, Hampton, Forest Green, Boston).

None of this, however, prevents me from giving positive support to St Albans City. I go to 90% of the games, I (along with the rest of EFM) will still be singing, even when we're 0-5 down against Canvey. We drink, we have a laugh, and we take the mick.

For what it's worth by the way, I quite like Gravesend, and I'll miss going there this season. Decent ground, and we always get there a couple of hours early so we can play some pool, and put some coinage into the jukebox in The Plough.
