Game watched: Barnet 3-3 Brentford
What to say - FA Cup Magic including 6 goals - 1 incredible free kick (one of the best I’ve seen live), 1 great team goal, 1 shocking penalty decision, 1 toe poke!
Believe it was a record attendance although never heard it announced.
Clearly there were some tourists there, but look what they were treated to.
First half was a little dry and once Brentford got a goal on the 40th minute mark, it seemed like Barnet’s resistance was possibly over. Second half was electric. Both sets of fans were going off as the various goals went in. Both had chants of ‘One Bees in London’ when they were on top.
Bees Terrace was compact, but great view. Really felt a part of it, although happy not to be right behind the goal where the smoke grenades were being let off. Traditional food outlet but reasonable prices for London.
And so easy to get to, although path leading to ground could have done with some lighting! Was fine as was following hundreds of others but on a National League weekday game imagine that’s very different.
Overall, great experience and atmosphere.
