  1. Andy Y's right. Spills might struggle to get back into our midfield, particularly following our two recent player purchases in the middle of the park. However, as Andy said, Spills was always an important player for us. His skill mixed with aggression was one of our finest assets a couple of seasons ago, so no-one should knock him. In fact, in the last few years he is our longest serving player aside from Jacko.
  2. So, the mass exodus of Dover players from the Crabble to Stonebridge Road begins. <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" /> It seems that Jimmy Strouts could potentially slot into our side quite nicely, with his impressive goalscoring record from midfield - much like our current stars in the middle of the park. Our strength this year was finding goals from a wide range of team members, and so adding another goalscorer who isn't a specialist striker could make things even better. OK, so we now seem to have an excess of midfielders, but with the reincarnation of the reserve team next season, there should be enough room for everyone. Also, has anyone noticed the interesting fact that links our two new boys? They both won player of the year awards at their respective former clubs in 2000/2001! <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />
  3. I like your signature Stu - I feel it will be a long time before Jeff King baiting ceases! <img border="0" title="" alt="[big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />
  4. Cheers everyone. <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" /> I'll be off now, to visit the Fleet's new Non League UK forum - hooray! <img border="0" title="" alt="[big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />
  5. Let's hope the match is an amicable and enjoyable one. I personally have little against the Canvey supporters we are supposed to have had a war of words with, and I feel sure that your own entry to the Conference isn't far away. <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />
  6. The mighty Fleet have just signed Mark Bentley from Aldershot. All I know so far is that he is talented, winning the Shots' Player of the Year award for the 2000/2001 season, but he is also injury prone. Any other info would be greatly appreciated from Shots fans. <img border="0" title="" alt="[smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />
  7. The trouble is, we have actually been drawn in the toughest group possible. Argentina are the strongest seeds in my view, we NEVER beat Sweden, and Nigeria were the strongest side from the final pot of teams in the draw. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" /> To be honest, I'll be happy with anything past the group stage. As for winners, aside from Argentina I think that Italy, however dull they are to watch, are defensively superb and are in with a great chance. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="images/icons/cool.gif" />
  8. Well, obviously I can only foresee that we will be in the Conference next season, making that the 'foreseeable future'.<p> <img src="graemlins/images/icons/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="[rolleyes]" /> <p>I'm quite willing to accept that we stand a reasonable chance of being relegated next year, but I'm just happy that we have escaped the clutches of the Ryman for at least one season.
  9. This sums the title race up well enough - it is true, Canvey's propensity to lose games they really should have won at key times got us out of jail on a number of occasions. Admittedly, some of the banter on our respective message boards went a little bit over the top, but good luck next year, and I'm sure if you can cut out the silly slip-ups against weaker opposition, the title will be yours next year (a Shots resurgence permitting!)<p>P.S. Is the writer of this piece in fact Fleet legend Dave Powell, holder of the 1995-96 FA Cup top goalscorer's mantle?
  10. I know this doesn't really challenge Sutton's mighty win over the Sky Blues, but it certainly felt like it as we tore through the might of Margate this afternoon - at their place!<p>5-0 the final score, completing a nice cup double, and showing us just how good we could potentially be in the Conference next season.<p>The response by the Margate fans was a rather bitter and sulky one on our club message board - any others out there?
  11. In response to the top of this thread, I think that while Proposal C would undoubtedly increase excitement, it would be extremely unfair on the Ryman League sides, who would be most hit by such a change.<p>I am just relieved that we have escaped from the Ryman, which has always inexplicably been regarded as the most insignificant of the three feeder leagues, meaning that all of this confusion fortunately no longer affects us for the foreseeable future.
