I know there has been a lot of negativity lately but for me Sladey is starting to show he's a good lower league manager. We're on a run of 1 defeat in 9 games, 3.wins 3 draws in the last 6 games - to me that's play-off for all day long.

OK, it might not always be pretty but was it under Paul Hurst who evyone is now saying is the messiah and Brian Clough  reincarnated.

What it is, is effective. We are becoming incredibly hard to beat, we defend as a unit and the desire is there for all to see.

We are clearly a couple of attacking players short of really making a go of it but the foundation for any successful team and often the hardest part to get right is to be defensively solid and organised and Slade has implemented that IMO.

I think some people forget that we are a League 2 club and their expectations that we should be playing tippy tappy football a'la Spain or Barcelona is just not realistic for the level we are at.

I'm not having a go at anyone here as everyone is entitled to their opinion but I just hope that we can start to cultivate a more positive atmosphere and look at the good things this team is doing rather than continually point out our faults and forensically analyse those.

I genuinely believe that given time and more importantly resources, then Russel Slade can get us fighting for promotion to League 1.

Let's see where we are after the Xmas period and what January brings.

The only thing that would have made this slightly more sickly, is if you had added "In Slade we Trust!" at the end.

Really looking forward to getting turned over by Cambridge next week now that we’ve had the “be positive” thread.

Clearly we are on a good run, let's see though whether it's down to an easier run of games or a sign that we have generated some solid foundations.  On a paper a tougher run coming up so I guess we will see.

Less than 18 months ago we were a non league team and nearly blew our chance at getting to Wembley. Now consolidated as a League Two team we are moving forward so I'm happy to be have that status. Yes, I would like to make the play offs and be entertained but at the moment the thought of being a League Two team is a good thought to have. Hopefully League One will come. And when (not if) it does how long will the club get before we are demanding promotion to the Championship?

I wasn’t moaning - I was just saying that we usually lose after someone posts something about positivity or unbeaten runs etc.

I really want to be positive, want to look forward to the match, want to be excited. But having sat through 90 minutes last Saturday its just not happening. Hopefully as the season progresses the positivity will return. We are having a good run and are in a respectable position, its just not that enjoyable to watch. UTMM.

Happy with the results, happy with where we are in the league, not a big fan of Slade but admit he is doing a good job and is still in the early days of his tenure, but i would really like to see a bit of excitement at BP now and again. Not expecting champagne football but a few crosses and shots with the odd goal wouldn't go amiss and wouldn't be too much to ask for would it?
