I’d beg to differ. My memories of the 90s are mainly of an attacking and free-scoring team that had quickly come up through the pyramid with a number of promotions, and which was on the verge of getting promoted to the Football League (albeit unsuccessfully). There were a number of memorable players that were exciting to watch during this time.

I’ve always put the high attendances down to the novelty factor of seeing a team that a few years before had been playing in front of 300 supporters in level 9 (or whatever it was) suddenly being catapulted to the verge of the League. The longer we stayed in the Conference, the more the number of floating fans went back to watching Arsenal and Tottenham, as they were always going to.

And in terms of a bar, back in the 90s you were able to pop into the old clubhouse at half time for a quick pint (certainly until the East Terrace was built). Not sure this had anything to do with attendances, but it was a nice feature.
