More Canvey Lies?

Recommended Posts

I just love the discription of .... the manager

 

 

Can't wait till next February when Jeff King, King Of the pikeys' comes to the Lamb. Especially after hearing his drivel on Pikey FM on the way home. What an arrogant obese illegitimate child. (Family club).

On another note while watching BBC coverage of the Olympics it was explained why Canveys attendances are so poor Athletics Commentators quote I think half of Canvey Island are here supporting Dean Macey. That would explain it all then.

Would they find their way off the island, and would the Greeks let them in?

you guys really make us pikeys laugh! Have you never, ever, got anything to do other than slag off canvey? why? ok, you don't like jeff king, fair enough.

 

i don't think the majority of canvey fans could give a toss about gravesend. you are just one of the other teams in the same division.

 

so what, we have a small ground. yours is hardly a palace. infact, albeit bigger than ours, it still looks like a dump. did you or did you not manage to fit all your travelling support into the ground for our game? so, what's the problem? if someone like carlisle or hereford can more than fill their allocation then that is our problem, and theirs, not yours.

 

anyway, that's got it off my chest, so enjoy the rest of the season, and good luck. yes, i mean that, because like i say, 'we' don't have a problem with you, we don't think about or care about you.

It still looks like a dump?????

 

Most true non-league followers would describe it as a 'traditional style non-league ground'.

 

As for your place - mecanno and duplo lego springs to mind.....

I think the problem most Gravesend fans have with Canvey is that the fact your players and lots of supporters and especially your manager are a arrogant bunch of t*****s with fat boy making comments such as we play football and they play rugby after we comprehensively outplayed you and won easily 2-0 at your place despite you cheating b********ds trying to turn off the floodlights and then his comments at the start of this season when he said we should have won the Ryman league two years ago when we were the better team , conveniently forgetting we won more games, lost fewer games, conceded less goals won more points, had bigger gates(by miles), have a far superior ground, a better manager, better players, smaller waist line and wage bill, and a far better sense of our own self importance. I think that covered most of our problems.

...is similar to what most conference sides have said for the past two seasons - ignore it. We always appear to be too physical/big* a side for any team from whom we happen to take points! (*delete as applicable)

Quote:
and then his comments at the start of this season when he said "we should have won the Ryman league two years ago when we were the better team"

Again, just another flippant comment. Why should it rankle you so? It was the closest that Canvey had come to winning the league having finished behind both Farnborough and Aldershot by points of double figures....what do you expect him to say? Of course he believes they should have won it, they were only 4 points off the pace.

Quote:
we won more games, lost fewer games, conceded less goals, won more points, had bigger gates(by miles), have a far superior ground, a better manager, better players

But that was probably true of both the Shots and Farnboro' too.

I'm quite bored of all this really. This often seems to go beyond the realms of banter and borders on unhealthy obsession. Let's face facts...
For four seasons Canvey was the most consistent team outside the Conference. Runners-up on three occasions, promoton at the fourth.
Gravesend was promoted before Canvey... end of story.
I'm sure the fans of the other clubs' who beat Canvey to the title do not go on as much as some of our fans do.
Yes Kingy is a bit of an irksome chap, but at least he's done some good for his club.
I despise Westley for his overall treatment of football clubs, personnel and fans in general.... besides which, with the Gills and their rapscallyon chairman leaning on the local council, there will always be bigger fish to fry than Jeff King (if you pardon the irony of that statement!)

My dislike of Canvey is certainly not an unhealthy obsession (unlike JK waistline) i was merely answering cifc315 query as to why we dislike canvey so much which I believe i did.

Well done 'Student Scum'...the decent supporters like yourself are the ones that make non-league football enjoyable. Banter without going over the top and a reasonable argument to back up your point.

 

Enjoy your game today and good luck

Come to this discussion rather late so please excuse me. The thing that bothers me about the whole Canvey/Gravesend thing is I couldn't care less about what your fans say about Jeff King, some of our players, our ground even the town itself (less face it, it is a sh.thole) but what pisses me off is the way some Fleet fans think that all Canvey fans are arrogant.

 

You had nobody on here shouting from the roof tops when we won the Ryman that we were going to walk the Conference and most of our fans were congratulatory towards Gravesend when you won the title in 2002.

 

The thing that rankles me is some of the stuff on here is not banter but little short of abuse. To call all Canvey fans 'arrogant' and pikey chavs is childish and downright way off the mark. Yes some of our supporters can be on the arrogant side and I would say in the past we've had some 'tossers' trying to make mischief.

 

I'm all for a bit of banter but comments like most of our 'supporters are arrogant twats' are just not on. Most Canvey fans are decent people and get behind their team come what may but at the end of the day if the opposition are better then we will be the first to congratulate them.

 

Anyway rant over.

 

Good luck for the rest of the season.

Good post YA,i think alot of it comes from the need to have a rivalry..i'll be honest,i join in with the anti-canvey chants just as much as the next person but deep down i don't really hate your mob at all..quite enjoyed my visit to Park lane *don't hate me fellow fleet fans*

Yep it's the same here. I join in with the "we hate Hornchurch, Southend etc" chants at Canvey but some of my best friends are Hornchurch fans and I work with quite a few Southend fans.

 

Everybody needs a team to hate. Ours is Southend or Billericay although a section of our support seems to have taken a dislike towards Hornchurch!!!

 

I suppose since Maidstone or Dartford went to pot Gravesend have struggled to find a real rival. Margate was a bit of a damp squib and let's face it one of the reasons we never had trouble with Farnboro or Aldershot was because they were quite a way ahead at the top there was no real tension between the two sides.

 

Canvey and Gravesend were neck and neck for much of the season and that's when things get tense and feelings run high.

 

There was a similar thing between Dagenham and Boston that season and the two clubs still have a rivalry to this day!!

The thing is YA, it is, as you say, "some Fleet fans" - and that "some" amounts to a small minority.

 

Most Fleet fans acknowledge, I am sure, what Canvey have achieved over the years.

The ground?? Well, its not wonderful, but then ours is showing its age a bit as well (albeit that its more spacious overall than Canvey's)

 

The attendances?? Its obvious Canvey struggle to attract fans - only just over 1200 (officially at least) for games against (fairly) local rivals, Gravesend & Barnet, doesnt bode well, but then Canvey are rather isolated, and we equally struggle to attract fans to our ground (see the numerous threads in the past on this subject)

 

The manager?? Well, Jeff King is a ready target, I'm afraid because of his outspoken comments sometimes and his size(probably unfair to have a go just because he's on the large side, but it is something that often gets picked on)

 

If Canvey have a successful season this year, playing decent football, that will be acknowledged throughout the Conference, I am sure (thinking about it, perhaps not, as we're still called physical long ball hoofers by many !!)

 

There will always be a certain rivalry between Canvey & Fleet, but it should be a healthy rivalry and not an unhealthy obsession as it is with some.
