What happened to the guy who littered the NW with the nut shells?

For all the grief the NW terracers get, I stood there once to compete the 92, or however many stands Underhill had. I found it quite amusing, and to be honest a bit of a stranger, but I did see the opponents right back complete lose it with the fans due to the continual barraging they were getting and threaten to jump over the fence. And not for the first time! Winding up the oppostion left winger / right back was a bit of a pastime for some there that normally played into our hands.

I remember the NW being infiltrated by Swindon fans once on a Tuesday night It was a bit unnerving as there were a few of them and they weren't particularly sober! We mostly put up with their singing etc until a fearless NW lady (very well known bees fan) walked up to them, shouted over to the security bloke and promptly told them all to feck off. There was a big cheer as they were all lead off to the north terrace.

At least can look forward to an east terrace bbq.


I took two with the intention of going back for more but haven't been back, was considering a small wall at the end of the garden but love the idea of a BBQ, do post a picture once its been made.

Perhaps we could all go round for a barbecue when it's finished.

For authenticity the burgers can't be of the highest quality, there must be excruciatingly hot tea on offer, and slightly odd looking twins on hand should there be any medical emergencies.

And you can only make the bacon rolls to order.

And can we form a long queue? For the sake of it.

You need a decent crowd to create a queue. 1100 home fans at the last Dive game. Strange what priorities different fans have.

Presumably the food will run out before everybody in the queue has been served.

GD, you should have realised as soon as your wise words were revealed all those embittered lost souls would produce all there jealosies for not being able to have been part of the terrace at the north-west part of Underhill. They were not fortunate enough to be amongst so many long-serving knowlegeable fans of this once magnificent club. I read that poor old j_c had been to all parts of the ground (obviously being told to f*** off, so having to move again). Fortunately we were saved from giving him this abuse. Probably why the chairman moved there was no where else for him to go. You can have your white elephant training ground with your warm beer and keep-fit gyms and medical equipment. Perhaps you should be worrying about the shit football and the position the club finds itself in. Bottom!!!!

Yes Dick, I knew what to expect when I wrote it and didn't expect anything sensible or sympathetic in reply either. I wouldn't expect them to sympathise with the likes of my dad who had been going there since the 50's and for whom, a Saturday afternoon was not only a time to meet up with friends but also due to geographical difficulties, see his family as well. It was probably what he looked forward to most in the week. To say it's just a bit of concrete maybe so for those with no emotions, but when family, friends, emotions and memories become attached to that bit of concrete, it makes it just that bit harder and sadder to see it go, especially as my dad has been unable to watch his beloved team since the move, bar a couple of games, so it's taken away a lot more than those who like to make a joke of it realise. But I realise there are idiots in all walks of life, I don't have any feelings about them or what they say, they're just meaningless and pointless.

Hope you're keeping well Dick, I miss those days. Take care my friend.

My dad was an Arsenal supporter since before the
WW2.

I’ve never been to Highbury or the Emirates.
