They can be on TV every week if they're going to lose as far as I'm concerned.

I cant believe this twit thinks that SKY like Grays more than Canvey. It's only coz you happen to be top at the moment. Sorry...WERE TOP!!! HA HA HA HA! They will be all over Exeter now that their top now mate.

You dont think they actually like going to the shittiest place in Essex. They actually want to keep their wallets and motors!

End of the day people Sky are clever in who they show, showed us versus Woking as it was the first time to get a glimpse at us, showed us against Accy as it was the record game and they are showing us against Mansfield as like you say looks like upset tie.

I am under no illusion why we are being shown and if Canvey's season had mirrored ours it would be you.

Our fan base has swollen since last yeat to 1700/1800 home fans (glory fans admit), yeah our away support is poor but then you see some of the big guns spouting off and they have only been bringing 150-200 fans to games.

we have problems with our crowd, not the biggest, but when we only take 60-80 away the people who are there sound as good as 1000+

What we lack in numbers we make up in noise.

Ive noticed that too Stimmo's Army, some of these ex league clubs spout off how much they take away but when it comes to it, alot of the time thier 200-300 off the mark.

As for the hangers on, we've had our fair shair in our time.

We will see how many Cambridge bring on Saturday, there was talk of 5-700 at the start of the season. Very few of the supposed "big teams" have lived up to their boasts of massive away followings in fact the ones who impressed me most was Accrington`s attendance on a Tuesday night.

Yeah thats football when your winning your everyones Favourites when you lose no one wants to know.

Looking forward to the Crimbo period to relight our battles, form book does go out the window for this one I think its going to be heated.

Yeah they talked it up against us but didnt live up to it.

Exeter last year promised 1000 came up with 200, thats just an example of the "big guns" living a lie

Can't really disagree with that. To be honest, I think you have the best chance of causing an upset. However, what I'd prefer to happen is that you draw at their place, get drawn away to Man Utd in the 3rd Round, and then lose the replay at your place!

Just like what happened to Southend a few seasons ago when a loss at Scarborough denied them the opportunity of playing Chelsea.
