Hi all, made the effort to register on here just to congratulate you lot on probably the most enjoyable game of football that I've been to where Barnet have lost - which is quite something when I had my heart fall through the floor with your 2nd goal. Gutted, but entertained. Great travelling support and if I'm right the biggest following we've had at the Hive since we moved. Thanks to all the fans who traveled for making it a great atmosphere and conducting yourself so well. When I saw the numbers and the inflatables etc I had visions of Luton fans acting stupid, but conducted yourselves great. The group I met on the tube going home were really polite and friendly too. Not a bad word to say about your traveling fans today. Loved the dino and the zimmerframe by the way!

I'm annoyed though. Why not perform like that against Rovers? We were awful today and have been for way too long now, but despite the misplaced passes, despite the mistake leading to the goal, despite the horrible obvious long balls, we still would've lost that first half. Our LB is normally reasonably solid, but Mackreth and LJL teamed up on him to great effect. Jolley looked decent and Arnold was dangerous. Those 4 on form is frightening for any team, I reckon. 2nd half was better but football being football, there had to be an injury time sucker punch in there. Deserved based on the first half, harsh based on the second.

Anyway, I don't want to take too much of your time, just wanted to say well done for contributing to a funny allround day of football today (mixed performance, horrid result, great atmosphere) and to wish you the best of luck for the playoffs and the rest of the season (presuming we don't play you there!) as on that performance you were the best team that I saw play at the Hive, by a long way. If you've any questions that I might be able to help with or you want my opinion further, feel free to ask! Thanks lads.

I think we are equally frustrated we can't do that against Rovers as well!!  Cheers for registering and commenting, got to say felt the officals at your club did you proud too, handled the crowd superbly and ensured the atmosphere was fun and positive as well.  Obviously had a great day out so hope we can have some more next year with the obvious addition of being in the league!

Very loud mate, singing loud and going mental the whole game. Looked like you lot were having a great time and I wish I could've been in the same situation! There's a number of reason why we don't have a great support but I can't find one to explain why our fans are so quiet, or require a reason to get behind the team. I didn't take any pics personally but there's quite a few on twitter. Looked a right site with all the little inflatables bouncing everywhere

Thanks for taking the time to comment Brad.

I know on their day Barnet can be noisy - went to a few of your home games during your last promotion from the Conference and stood in that covered terrace at Underhill. Cracking atmosphere and some characters in there. Nice to hear "we're on our way" getting an airing today. Was it really 10 years?


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I always appreciate and admire it that fans support the so-called 'little teams' here in London.  If you live in or near Barnet, the temptation to be just another Spurs or Arsenal fan must be enormous (as Roy Hodgson politely put it on telly the other night, "we all know that the premiership is just a European league that happens to be played in England").   To my grumpy old soul it somehow seems more commendable to get behind the Barnets and Wellings of this world.

Which is not to say I don't want us to climb the leagues and meet the big teams more regularly....again...

I think it is tough for the likes of Barnet and to some extent unfashionable Wimbledon being surrounded by top flight clubs.  I think we all know the fans of Barnet and the likes of Wimbledon are true football fans.

Thanks for your comments BarnetBrad, it seems you have made one hell of an impression with the fishy, +50 on your two posts so far, amazing.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.
