Have to agree the Underhill sentimentality is becoming pretty tiresome

If we were at the other end of L2, nobody would be mentioning Underhill.
We can all remember Underhill with affection but there aught to be some realism also. The place was outdated and unsuitable for 21st century professional football.

If we ever see 21st century professional football your comment might take on some relevance.

As are your maniacally supportive posts of Westley and his managerial skills. Nobody has a pop at you though.

Agreed the football was shocking throughout the last 6 years at Underhill (bar under David’s, which was enjoyable) love the old place, but it’s gone now. A successful team at The Hive would enable people to move on.... unfortunately that looks a long time away :(

I disagree.

Tony committed some time ago that we would never see league football at the Hive, and when we got relegated at Northampton his commitment was fulfilled, but that pesky Martin Allen made him break his promise.

Now Tony is doing everything within his power to live up to that commitment by appointing a succession of disastrous managers and consigning us back to the non-league.

Fair play, that man never knowingly breaks a promise.

To be fair i don't think anyone is this thread has been moaning about the hive, people were only discussing ways as home fans we could use the best bar in the ground.

Much of the moaning is about the endless promises every season about playoffs and progression by TK, yet every season (Baring the recovery season back when we got promoted back to the FL) has been dogshit, and as you mentioned it has been 10 years now!

As its being demolished it would have been topical had we been 7 points clear at the top rather than 7 adrift of safety.

I get the impression that remembering some of the great times at Underhill is getting in the way of your attempts to pretend that everything is great and we shouldn't be posting negative posts.

With regard to the first part, I hold my time at Underhill going back as far as 1964 as very close to my heart, as I used to go there with my father. I don't just remember Underhill, but also the times enjoyed there with my father, who passed away a few years back. I am sure that there are many others with comparable situations. On that basis if I want to post about Underhill I f*cking well will!

Underhill 106 years
The Hive 4 years

You don't switch off history like a light bulb.
Like Bee52 I will also post about Underhill whenever I want.

Fair point Bee52, I first went to Underhill with my dad and sadly he passed away between the last game at Underhill and the first at THL.

Of course the demolition would have been mentioned if we were 7 points clear.

But there obviously wouldn't be as much anger and bitterness towards the club and team, had these pathetic bunch of cowards we currently have to endure in Barnet shirts been any good, and at the top of the table.

Alas, we are going to be back at square 1; back in Non League in a lovely stadium in an inconvenient area, with a dwindling core support.

If you read this message board then you will realise that about 90% of comments relate to High ticket prices, Location of the Hive and long-standing Shit Football. This is a board for peoples opinions and sometimes it seems we are moaning because for a long time now, the negatives far outweigh the positives. I suggest that if you don't like moaning, then don't read this message board.
