Someone put a drone in the stadium a few months back. It's quite hard to watch, the ground is like a jungle now, with grass overgrown and seats gone. So sad to see.

Thanks for posting this! :Drink1:


You're welcome.

I was really taken back by how much it had fallen into a state. Weird to see the seats gone, the amber barriers on the East Terrace first row fade because of sunlight, and what appears to be a small jungle around the south stand.

On the flip side all it would take is someone to cut the grass and put a lick of paint and the ground would be back to normal again...

And a chairman who wanted to return to Barnet...


It's easy to criticise TK but where on earth was we meant to go? We couldn't stay at Underhill and there was no where nearby that was suitable or possible.. Luckily we already had a fantastic set up in Harrow for a swift change over. God knows where we would have ended up if it wasn't was THL. Probably ground sharing with some club....

Probably a pub side. I suppose a lot would have depended on how good the pub was and which beer it sold! LOL. :whistle:

The alternatives were groundsharing with Orient or Stevenage

So ground share with miles away in Stevanage (with less financial gain) or move relatively close into a brand new state of the art football complex which we own.. tough choice

Just heard someone, who is a big Bees' fan, refer to The Hive as a "soulless chicken restaurant".

At least it's not a soulless sloping shithole.

Each to their own, I suppose. It's surprising the number of away fans who actually miss their visit to Underhill.
Personally, I've accepted the Hive because it brings in extra revenue. However, it does nothing for me as a football venue.

I'm with you on this.
One thing Underhill wasn't is soulless. The Hive is yet to build a fraction of the positive memories that tied supporters to Underhill.

Obviously Underhill had more character than The Hive, just as many quaint non league grounds have more character than soulless new stadia. However IMO, The Hive has more character than a lot of new grounds, maybe because it is quite open compared to many.

The stadium itself is quite colourful, and you are still very close to the action. What we need is the action to improve and give us something to be excited about.

The rotisserie chicken is incredible. It's soulless because of the very people who call it soulless.. no one makes a sound and the fans are to blame.

Returning to Underhill the Documentary.

It must be uploaded somewhere, available somehow. Refuse to believe it will just disappear before i've got to see it.

So, ideas please?
