tsk tsk our frds from the other side of the new airport have been at it again...andy ford (manager) decided to get himself sent off as he discussed margates offside goal in terms the linesman didnt appreciate...
naturally if our own glorious leader lost it in such a fashion the usual holier than thou brigade from spitbridge would be on like a shot .. good old jeff we can rely on him to stay cool no matter what the <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/biggrinangelA.gif" alt="" /> provocation ;-)

Well put, fairly constructive. I have to say that, when;

a) their fans said it was offside
B) their manager said it was offside
c) the linesman quivered when surrounded by players and said sorry

i would be inclined to think that perhaps it may have been offside. Now I dont particularly mind, we have lost £20k which would have been very nice but the way in which we lost was very unjust. Andy has every fleet supporters backing for what was said and was right to stand up to a linesman that was (apparently) 20 yards behind play!!!!

Regards
Richard

Oh and also, as we (fleet supporters) have hardly been on here since last season and when we do, rarely say anything derogatory, it would be nice if you could perhaps be a bit more thoughtfull. Unlucky against Slough by the way.

Thanks in anticipation.
Richard

obsession? just happens that my only 2 fleet posts are at the top today..
if i was really that bothered i'd chuck em your board...just pointing out a few facts to the usual canvey bashers on here .. i think we both know what would be on here if young jeff had done the same...
thanks for your concern about our sluff reverse it was a truly battling performance from our guys and we were very unlucky ..er ... not...
seems andy ford was still a tad pissed about the offside call when he did his managers report, how many yards offside was it?

I would say that it was at least two.

The kindest thing that can be said about the linesman is that maybe Collins was so far forward that he was out of his line of sight.

You shouldn't be ashamed of your Fleet envy <img src="/forums/images/icons/wink.gif" alt="" /> , only by facing up to it can you hope to overcome it. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cool_shades.gif" alt="" />

I’d say the obsession is the other way round Dave. We may observe your board as we are genuinely interested to see how you are doing, but never actually post anything as it normally ends up in a slanging match and devalues the board. You’d better keep that Andy Ford under control though. Seems like a loose cannon to me! Next he’ll be giving radio interviews that might gee the other sides up a little! And while you are here, Canv’s right, your lot do give the impression of a holier than thou brigade. There are little mentions of Canvey, which you just can’t give up, and your lot just crave any kind of mention whether it’s on the local radio, a snip it of TV or a line on the BBC website. Although we are out of the Cup, we’ve already achieved national TV twice last year. Something that you lot won’t receive at all this season. After Saturday, must be time again to watch not so long ago memories. Shall it be the two hours live on Sky and watch the Trophy final win or the two hours live on Match of the Day live and watch the FA Cup second round win. Decisions decisions! I feel so much better now I’ve got that out of my system.

Richard C. Your response does not makes sense.

Gravesend and any form of media attention – Yes not no.

Your sentence “is very hypocritical, already achieved National tv twice last year - in a 'ner ner ne ner ner' attitude.” What does this mean and it’s a ner nicky ner ner attitude anyway!

“You should decide what you right before answering your own points”. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN!! and “right” should be spelt write.

What the. I could have sworn there was. Mind you, I have mentioned most of your post before something very strange has happened to it.
