Downhill Second Half started out in 2009 as an alternative viewpoint on Barnet FC.

Totally independent of the club, we set out to talk about amusing away day stories with minimal emphasis on the actual football side of it. However, as time went on we often used the site to vent our frustration on how things were progressing (or not) at the club, as the articles of 2010-2013 will certainly demonstrate.

As well as this though, we set out to be a definitive home for Barnet FC statistics and records. We were able to get some of the way there, but a lot of the information simply didn't exist out there, so the jigsaw remained incomplete.

We called time on the site in 2013, partly out of apathy, partly out of cost, partly as a reaction to relegation and the impending move away from Underhill.

The Return

However, when the UK went into lockdown in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we wondered whether there was something we could do to reminisce and that's where the idea of a podcast came along, and naturally we thought we'd bring back the site to sit alongside it.

We've added all the recent records, delved into some more research to find some more, but we are still a way short of finding everything we need to complete the Barnet FC statistical picture. We have appearances and goalscorer data now back to 1979 and are working on going back to 1965 and beyond.

We have had a lot of help along the way from individuals to bring the site to where it is now. In particular, John Snow was the original compiler of the professional results history and was kind enough to share them with us when we started out.
