My first visit yesterday having previously been to Underhill, looks a really good set-up and a real community project. I know we are looking at something with double the capacity, but looking at this, why do we need the partner funding? Couldn't we work WITH the council, like Barnet clearly have with Harrow, to achieve a really good (if slightly small) COMMUNITY facility?

Barnet's relationship with Barnet Council has to be the worst relationship imaginable. The Hive is in the neighbouring borough of Harrow and I gather that one of the stands didn't have planning permission.

  Is it the one that suffered structurally under the weight of bouncing mariners?


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

Sorry Old Codger but we have ambitions of reaching the promised land.

See http://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/news/local-news/barnet-fc-sees-enforcement-notice-6945832

It's the one in front of the tube line that was the issue.

Good day yesterday though.

LOL - did we try to de-construct it - along the lines of a Newport flag?

Probably due to their location but barnet are one club who have a sustainable model based on their new ground. They make excrement loads out of visiting teams who come to London and also have 1st rate medical facilities etc.

I thought I read somewhere that they make buggar all as they don't own it and are desperately trying to get back to a new ground in the Borough of a Barnet??

(Or did I dream that?)
