Well that was up there amongst the very best Town away days in 40 + years of travelling with Town...The atmosphere was fantastic and the team responded. Favourite inflatable has to be the zimmer with an oscar for the person using it to stagger across the bottom of the stand-hilarious!

Game wise we played a high up the pitch pressing game for much of the first half and they just couldn't deal with us. Arnold could have had a couple quite early on and we actually got some decent balls into areas where it mattered. As others have said McKreth did brilliantly for the first goal. The back four came through with flying colours. It will take a superhuman effort to keep Magnay on that and most recent performances. Thought Clay was a bit unlucky to get booked and it seemed to affect the way he played for a while. To be fair to them they missed Togwell badly when he had to go off. We thought Macca should have done better with their goal but then he redeems himself with a fantastic finger tip save to a shot which looked for all the world a goal as it left their lads boot.
Hurst has had a lot of stick for his (lack of) meaningful substitutions but it is fair to say he got it absolutely spot on with Pitman. Their tiring back four had no answer to his power and pace with not a little skill thrown in. People go on about what we've missed with Neilson being out of favour but for me the biggest loss by far has been Pitman. Some of his play today belonged to a far higher level than we have the right to see.  When Arnold failed to hit the target from probably the best move of the season I began to wonder whether it was going to be our day but then cometh the Diz. Pure pandemonium and then the icing on the cake.
The other results didn't go for us today which makes a win on Tuesday absolutely vital-surely the players must want more of what they had today?


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

This and punks summaries are spot on. Ps what this about criticism of Arnold? He was excellent, apart from the miss of course!

Ooops...just realised the only two mentions he got were negative. Some of his passing was brilliant today and he has very quick feet and some pace.

A great day out and superb support from the fans, which I truly believe gave the players a boost- how could it not?  It was also great to have the players celebrate with the fans and things like that help strengthen that bond and sense of shared endeavour.  The Barnet Stewards handled things very sensibly and used some good humour to keep things good-natured.  I heard a few town fans commending their staff on the way out and I hope if Getyourfactsright or any directors still lurk here he can pass on the club's appreciation to Barnet as BigChris did.

Another thing; I was chatting with a few town fans on the tube after the game and we mentioned the Fishy just as I was getting off at Green Park, but I didn't get your names, so if you're reading this, it was nice to meet you and will hopefully see you at Woking!

I was unable to make it today had work commitments but wanna say a big well done to both the team and the fans for doing the double over the leaders just shows that we can do it and with a bit of consistency there is no reason we should be left to languish in this league and to take near a thousand fans just shows how big a club we are at this level.

At times especially the first half, probably Towns best performance of the season. Should really have had the game won by half time. Mackreth who I have been critical of this season had his best game for Town as did Jolley.

Other than the goal they were poor in the first half. They obviously got a kick in the proverbials from Martin Allen and looked much stronger in the second half.

I will have to wait for the highlights but I thought their goal came from a Toto mistake. Arnold should have done better with two great chances, and LJL was easily covered by their centre backs other than that a great performance by all round including the fans. Although I thought it was a bit dopy to throw inflatables on the pitch when we were defending a corner.

And the same to you young man, Short but brief chat and I hope China Town was worth it. Great game, Superb atmosphere, could not believe Barnet had a fire drill in the 93rd minute! Jack Mac MOM for me.
