Don't expect any sympathy here, especially from the M family.

We all seem to be missing a major factor in our various disagreements and battles of Barnet fans. The sale of Underhill plus the demolition that was planned and is now being carried out has quite clearly brought about the release of some majorly bad spirits that have arisen from beneath the ground and found their way to THL. I'm not talking about spiced rum or similar either.

It is one of those little known facts that over 200 years ago, the bodies of many old travelling horse dealer types were secretly buried. They were allegedly killed in secret night raids by a renegade army from the Nottingham area at the behest of a handful of corrupt "tax collecting" land owners (or similar).

Recent events have undoubtedly disturbed these poor unsettled souls and brought about The Curse of Underhill! How else could anyone explain the Barnet team's poor form shown so consistently this season, the number of different managers in one season, the astounding number of lengthy injuries, the poor attendances, the position in the league table, the 20% increase in parking costs, Barnet fans in complete disagreement on the forum, the number of late goals conceded, the number of poor refereeing decisions, the missing midfield, the loss of John Akinde's magic, Mark McGhee and the lack of free range chickens roaming the streets of Colindale?

It's The Curse of Underhill, no doubt about it! You must know it makes senseDisbelieve this at your own peril!

I like it, but there's no mention of Westley? On a more serious point the soil on the pitch was being removed today and the guys in the diggers were dressed in full asbestos mode? There was also a horrid smell about the place.

I hadn't got to Westley yet. My hopes are that he has an Exorcism Medal in amongst his silverware.

Re the horrid smell, I reckon that's just the forever ingrained stench from the Bovril. All the more reason for the asbestos protective gear. The new buildings will most probably house that whiff forever more!

I have just read recent message sent by Bee52.
I am deeply concerned by the 'The Curse of Underhill' story, why, because there is something in it.
Many years ago, in the early 1960's I travelled to the famous Barnet Fun Fair with my dad and brother. We walked along the well
worn footpath next to Dollis Brook and eventually arrived at the Fun Fair field. From there we strolled through and arrived at
Barnet Lane to see the Horse Trading Fair on the other side of the road.
To the right of the muddy entrance to the Horse Fair field, there was, and you won't believe it, a Gypsy Rosie Lee fortune teller booth. ITS THE TRUTH !
Now Gypsy Rosie Lee was much agitated and was pacing up and down Barnet Lane near the Bridge.
I have never heard so much ranting, swearing & cursing. I was quite young, frightened, but somehow was able to understand that she was saying:
No one, absolutely no one should disturb the Sacred Underhill turf, it would cause great unhappiness & misery if the unsettled
buried souls came to the surface.

Strange that, but I am not wrong, Bee52 completes the story.
I now understand why the results have been so bad, so bad, so bad.
That's the last time I cycle to Whetstone on the back route cycle path.

I'm just pleased that our resident serial flouncer is back. Think the last one was at half time during a game.

It must be the rarefied air around the NW Frontier. Magical.

As a young lad I often visited the Barnet Fair when it came to the town every September. I loved the rides, the helterr skelter, the stall where you threw darts at playing cards, there was often a sort of circus/freak show and I usually went home with empty pockets (although one year I did win a goldfish which sadly died the following day).
Gipsy Rose Lee was, indeed, a regular visitor to Barnet Fair but I steered clear of her small tent. Even at such a young age I felt there was something evil about this woman.
One year, however, I would have been about 13 I went as usual to the fair with a pal of mine, Grant Bennett.Outside Gipsy Rose Lee's tent was a horse and cart. This aroused our curiosity and we climbed up to look into the cart. It was full of hunderdweight sacks of coal. In those days coal was delivered to the local houses by horse and cart. As we climbed down from the cart we heard voices coming from inside the tent. "Let's look in" said my pal. I was somewhat reticent but he grabbed my arm and dragged me over to the tent. At the back of the tent there was a small rip in the canvas, just big enough, though, for us to be able to peep in.
The Gypsy woman was standing there with three men. She had a flowing robe on, a colourful scarf on her head and big gold earrings.
One of the men was obviously the owner of the horse and cart. His face was blackened by the coal dust and he had huge arms and biceps so strong due to the nature of his physical job.
The second man was as dark as the darkest night you have ever experienced. His skin was black, his hair was black and, if I could have seen him up close I would have wagered his eyes were black too. He wore a black suit, a black shirt, a black tie and black shoes.
The third man was dressed in a very snazzy red suit, one of those popular at the time, thin drainpipe trousers and the collar of the jacket was made of black fur. He had a thin colourful tie on and on each finger of both hands he had at least one ring, probably gold.
After probably no more than a few seconds of Grant and I peeping through the hole in the tent the three men started to make their way out of the front. As they stepped out on to the grass Gypsy Rose Lee gave the most chilling of screeches which chilled me to the bone.
The three men stopped, turned round to her, whereupon she just said in a low tone " Go and do what you have to do! Destroy the bees".
Grant and I legged it as fast as our legs could carry us.
We often spoke about this in later years but it wasn't until very recently that we came to realise what this event was all about. Gypsy Rose Lee was planning the demise of Barnet Football Club..... and she used these three men to help her in this dastardly deed. The coal man, the black man and the flash man.
