'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Opposition View - Barnet


Following yesterday's 4-2 victory over Barnet, here are some views on the game from the Bees' manager Mark Stimson and a few of their fans.


"It was lack of concentration that cost us, not lack of confidence, because the lads flew out of the traps for the first 15 to 20 minutes," said Stimson.

"We looked as if we were top of the league and flying - so I don't think confidence is the problem."


The Bees' fans were a little more critical of their side's performance.

The following extracts are taken from the Barnetfc.com messageboard and The Football Forum.

'I have supported this club through thick and thin for the past 25 years. I've travelled all over the country to places I would never have dreamt of visiting - from Darlington to Plymouth and Merthyr Tydfil to Norwich, but I have never felt so disillusioned and embarrassed to say I'm a Barnet fan as I have been so far this season.'

'Tonight was my first game of the season and what a shock it was. That was possibly the worst first 45 minutes I've even seen.'

'Tonight was a brilliant attacking performance by the best Barnet side ever. We are playing some great football and it's only a matter of time before we climb the table. The only difference between the two sides was that they could attack and defend and score goals and they had a midfield.'

'Tonight was a shambles, we got battered by a team who hadn't won since the opening day of the season and truthfully are rubbish.'

'We put in a good second half performance and if we can show that kind of form again, we may start picking up some points.'

'Considering we were 3-0 down at half time, a 4-2 defeat is actually like a win.'

'Our defending was awful. Not just the defenders but the complete lack of cover the midfield gave them. Our attacking play was decent though, especially once Walsh came on and Marshall got into it. 4-4-2 with two proper strikers is the way to go.'

'If we could defend, we might have had a chance last night. 4-2 gives the impression that we were in the game, but we were second best thanks to abysmal defending which cost us some very sloppy goals. Even the second could have been prevented if the ball hadn't been given away cheaply and we'd closed down the man, but it was an excellent strike. We had two decent spells, one at the start of the game, and one towards the end, but for the large part in the middle, we were soundly beaten and got what we deserved.'

'Worst game I've ever seen from a Barnet side, I'd like to add that I paid 40 in total on tonight and I could have gone to Chelsea instead and it would have cost me about 30. Going to watch Barnet is becoming more and more depressing each week.'


Next Game: Stevenage v Wycombe - 2nd October - 3.00pm
