It being advertised a few days before the Saturday didn't help. Great idea though.

That said, few football clubs do anything at more than 5 days notice, such his the nature of the business. Some of our fans should be well aware of that by now...

Don't expect anything like that will happen again after such a horrendous turn out


Like I said in post above I went along to the 1 in 2014 which was on the Monday morning of Christmas week, that was a decent turn out if I remember right and was only announced 6 days or so before the event (someone may correct me though?)
My point being that maybe the day and time was not convenient for a lot of fans and the club should not write of doing something similar again at a later date.

Or maybe our fanbase post-Underhill move is rubbish?

Post relegation - it was pretty rubbish in the last few seasons at Underhill too

That 1 back in 2014 was post Underhill.

I reckon if the club arranged something similar during the week at next half term break it may get a better turn out, especially if we are on a winning run of form and are in top 5 of the table.

That was because of the poor football and results we was having, nothing to so with being at Underhill.

Currie expresses his disappointment at the open day attendence and seems to have a go at Barnet fans for not turning up in the latest video, but he forgets that it was very short notice. Many of us would have turned up if we could, or if it was instead of a home game. I like his passion but it seems unfair to have a go at the fans through this method, most of who are the ones who do/would turn up.

I had committed to watching England @ Wembley. I'm sure that did not help either,

Wasn't in the country but would have gone otherwise.

MA did something similar while we were running away with the league and I only remember around 70-80 people being there. It was still worth doing and boosted morale amongst the fans before a busy xmas period.

DC is slowly bringing the fans together and creating a positive energy around the club which has been lacking for too long. I hope he doesn't feel what he did was worthless. It's just what is needed.
