This Saturday's match at The Hive will be Barnet's first League game there. The capacity of this ground is only about 5,000. With it being a historical match is it possible the crowd will be anywhere near a full house and how much will be set aside for us. I reckon we'll have 4/500 there. What do Deva Chatters think?

I think we will take closer to 700 as it's the 1st game of the season. Everyone I speak to seems to be going, will be good to get a good turnout, and obviously there will be a number of the southern based exiles there.

They have set aside the south terrace which holds just under 900 (think harry max but with 7 rows not 10 like we have) and 350 seats in the biggest stand. That's more than enough for us. Reckon we will take about 800, just like we did to oxford last season.

There will be at least 700 from Chestet there. As nicksonmatt has said, everybody seems to going to this one. How many coaches have been booked for it?? Most of the people I've been talking to are making a day of it and heading down early hours on the train. Barnet only think we'll bring 200-400. I think they'll be in for a shock.

looking at the barnet forum they are not expecting a big turnout and are hoping they can get 3000 if we bring decent numbers

Does anybody know if there's a ground guide set up for the Hive with pictures etc? Would be nice to actually see what their new stadium looks like.

Some Blues might find it easier to go to Underhill and then jump on the shuttle bus?

Can't see any less than 800. Think we'll have 1000 odd there.

Im coming up from dorset and will be drinking in the hole in the wall (waterloo) with bournemouth fans (as they play watford) at 11am and then head to Baker street for around 12.30 for a few pints in the The Globe before getting back on the jubilee line and getting off at Canons Park station for the beehive.

I've been tempted but had second thoughts. Creates potential for things to go wrong that doesn't exist paying cash on the turnstiles. First game at a new ground, presume this ticket system is also new, could have teething problems.

UNLESS we can't pay cash on the turnstiles and have to buy tickets from the ticket office, then queue again at the turnstiles, like some other clubs do. I remember Shrewsbury doing that a few years back. Does anyone know if this is the case? If so I'd buy tickets online to save queuing twice on the day.

Whilst the rest of The Hive is a bit meh, I wouldn't mind a large main stand at Chester like Barnet now have. Would be quite an imposing site from the main gates.

I started to do it, but when I got onto the stadium plan there wasn't any seats occupied, so I thought I'd try again later. They also seem to want a lot of information.

There are a number of pubs around and on Euston station itself. Although I think I am planning on heading Baker Street and getting off there. There is a massive Witherspoons outside of Baker Street station on the left and The Globe is on the opposite side of the road.

Talking of Wetherspoons, the Exiles are meeting at the Wetherspoons in Kingsbury (a JJ Moons) which is one stop away from Queensbury (for the Hive).

Here's a link from Beer in the Evening: Wetherspoons - Kingsbury.

(PS Unfortunately I can't get there myself, as I've not got enough time and will be heading straight for The Hive - but others will be there. guiness.gif ).

I thought the stop for The Hive was Canons Park (or something like that).

It depends which way you are going. If you go to The Hive from central London you go beyond it on the tube to Canons Park. It looks to me like Canons Park and Queensbury are virtually identical distances away (Canons Park is admittedly slightly less) - but Queensbury comes first on the route from London.
