Exactly - still better than what we will get at Gravesend next Tuesday!

An Aldershot view of last night


Good post this from beew. Good to hear views on other teams supporters trip to the hive. As mentioned on hear before. I think the club closing down the normal allocated location for away fans is not a issue. BUT to increase the price by £2 is a disgrace and I am sure we would feel the same if this happened to us when visiting grounds. Can see the club closing of areas and putting away supporters as per last night again. But come on TC ( or whoever has come up with idea) Of charging more. This is not on and you will certainly not be making a fortune by pissing off all supporters. Especially away fans. Even £20 is to expensive. If reduced to £15 I believe you would attract more supporters thus bringing in more money at turnstiles.
And the SAS tactics before entry. Does not make sense with crowds of 1069. This is only adding to people's reasons not to attend games at the hive. The club need to sort this out and before our next home game.. Didn't understand shot fan saying our ground is shit. Obvious he hasn't been to many away grounds. And stupid to try and bring in a bottle into a football stadium. As just cannot do that now and rightly so. ( added last section because I didn't in original post and people thought I believed this was ok. But I was just picking up on admission prices.

The point is that it’s illegal to bring alcohol into the ground. If something had happened afterwards and it was discovered that no search had been conducted to prevent alcohol being brought into the ground, the club would have been in a lot of trouble.

I don't think the guy was disputing the fact that he could not bring the alcohol into the ground, merely his treatment for a genuine mistake. As for the admission charges, you couldn't really blame away fans if they decide not to bother to come.

Genuine mistake??? Do you really believe that anybody carries round bottles of beer in a bag small enough to be taking into a football ground does so without knowing that they are doing so? Of course not.
Nobody who cares about their club doesn't decide not to come because the stand costs £2 more than it is at their own ground. Or if money is that tight, they save by not buying the pint or pie.

Last season we played a struggling Aldershot at home on a Tuesday night. After playing very poorly in the first half and going in at 0-0 having created very little, we started the second half like a train and scored a goal very early through Mason-Clark. We then sealed a 2-0 win with a brilliant 25-yard right-footed curler into the top right-hand corner in front of the South Terrace.

And we did it all again this season!

Fingers crossed we don't recreate last season's Halifax away performance this Saturday...

Halifax always seem to provide watershed moments for us. That 4-0 defeat at home when Allen returned brought both him and us down to earth with a bump, just when we thought we might have a sniff of the playoffs. The next season, we blew them away in the same fixture on our way to the title.

Last season we put in a poor performance at the Shay, compounded by Duku coming off the bench and scoring against us. Hopefully DC will view this fixture the same way. Everything that was wrong with that performance last season can be put right this time around. A victory up there would certainly lay down a marker.

Good to see the stewards are doing their job. If you've got nothing to hide, you have nothing to whinge about. Given The Hive is a London based stadium need to have vigilance especially with increase in knife crime in London suburbia.

And the cockwomble {(c) deluded shots fan} clearly clueless regarding stands

As for admission prices, it's how it is and average for National League. Everything has gone up cost of cinema, theatre, beer, food, days out. You make a choice whether you are prepared to pay or not.

We didn't increase the price by £2, (as per Roy57) they paid the same price for a seat in Legends stand that home supporters pay.

Correct Derek, what happened is we closed a stand where they would have been charged £20 & put them in a stand where they had to pay £22. The argument away fans have is Barnet fans have a choice of stands where they can pay £15 or £22 while away fans aren't given the choice!
