We might as well try it nothing else seems to work.

First the players, if they go out onto the pitch fearing another defeat that will most likely be the outcome.

On the other hand if they go out thinking I don't care who we are playing we can beat anybody , they just might get a result.

Now us the fans. If the players are hearing us saying another defeat on Saturday it will be in the back of their minds and again their heads will go down once the other side scored first.

So it's up to us to be positive and think we can get out of this mess because our players are up for the fight . Let's all think we can win the next game and the ones after give confidence to the players and we might all be pleasantly surprised. A run of 2 or 3 wins on the bounce and the table looks a lot better.
The players are feeling they can beat whoever we play and us fans are not so depressed.

What have we got to lose ?  Come on Town we can do this together.

No more negative thoughts ok

Power of Positive Thinking, a book by Norman Vincent Peale. I read it decades ago so to answer the questions,

Yes we will win on Saturday

Yes we will stay up

I'm always positive on Fridays. It's Saturdays that's the problem.

As I said on another thread Pete, I’m with you on the positive attitude. It’s all to play for and nothing to lose. They have to go out there and give it their all.

Fans being positive won't make us win games. The team winning games will make the fans positive.

My stance has been and remains, we are not down until the maths say so.

You know what Pete, you're right in every way. The whole GTFC project has been soooo negative lately, the new owners must be thinking "WTF have we done?"

Only last weekend, I was thinking, "How can we, the fans, help turn this around"? And I came up with the idea that if we could think of what has been positive - perhaps we can make the future more positive, by taking positivity from the past.

The two season 2014/15 and 2015/16 have been the high points, the Play Off season (that we lost) then the following season which saw us promoted back into League Two. What were we doing "On this day" in each of those seasons? Lets concentrate on those "Highs" and let somebody else deal with the "Lows".

For too long we've done nothing but moan about where we should be, but moan is all we have done.

Lets go out all positive about climbing the table. If anybody wants to be negative, maybe Rob could create a "Whingers Corner" for them.
