Half expected to see 5 or 6 old guys still stood on moaners corner, stuck like something out of Chernobyl.

So very sad , I have gathered some east terrace turnstile bricks together over the last few weeks and will have to turn them into part of a bbq for next summer in the back garden . Centre of my garden is turf from the last match . Once long ago I lived in Enfield and in between the Spurs matches attended Enfield games . Another squashed stadium . Been going to the old underhill place since 1993 . Seem to have lost wh lane, Southbury road and now underhill .
At least can look forward to an east terrace bbq.

While it might seem funny to you and a chance to make a joke out of a sorry situation, believe it or not, even the old guys on "moaners corner" are finding it quite heartbreaking seeing their favourite corner of the ground being demolished. Many people stood there for years and years, in all kinds of weather, supporting the same club as you. The friendships and camaraderies that were forged on those terraces over so many years all but fizzled out with the move to Hive, and for most, that corner of the ground holds many fond memories. I had been going to UH since 1970, so might qualify as an old boy, and though you might think your comment funny, I find it in bad taste while we watch our spiritual home being destroyed brick by brick. They might have taken away our home but they'll never take away our memories. It's just a shame that at this time while we're all finding it distressing to see the place being demolished, someone still has to make fun of fellow supporters.

Nostalgia is in the heart of the beholder. A bit of concrete to those with no emotions maybe. To many others it's significantly more than that. Personally, it's where I stood as a kid before graduating to the West Bank. I have many memories standing with my now, dear departed Dad, on the North West. But of course, it's just a bit of concrete!!

I started on the East Terrace, went to The West Bank, back to the East Terrace, then main stand, then finally South Terrace (West Bank).

Kept well away from you oddballs in the NW Frontier at all times.

West, East and then main stand...it holds many very happy memories but that is what they are...memories.

Am i happy about whats happen...NO.

But Golf Delta's "its not funny" to say something about Moaners Corner is just a bit too much! Time to act your age guys!!!

Come on perspective..... it’s only football, we had to move Underhill was dilapidated and not fit for purpose. Your friends will still be there, sad situation of course, time to move on.

I laughed more at this response than I did to my original post, and I found that very funny.

You got bullied by the THB on the Popular (before it was known as the East Terrace) didn't like the bad language and stacks on The West Bank, got lazy and wanted to sit down then went for a cheaper seat. You really were a natural for the North West Terrace mate.

I have taken the rise out of the old soldiers on the Morgue Terrace for years and always will, please don't take offence Dukey. Has it never occurred to everybody but the club never bothered with a Tea Hut on there? Half time was like a Bank Holiday in Southend, out would come the Flasks of Coffee Pork Pies Bovril Crisps and a Bar Six! Google that Cocolate Bar!
