It's that time of the week again, the day before the game. All negatives have been debated and nothing resolved, so it's time to look to positives.

FGR haven't the best defence as they let 3 in against Stevenage, Southend and Oldham in recent matches so If Hursty gets his formation and tactics right then who knows. Talking of Hurst, in or out, he's still our manager so their is no Dave Moore in temporary charge.

I wonder if we were able to go to BP what we fans would say on the way into and in the ground. I don't think regardless of how bad this last week has been that we would talk of getting beat. Even the most pessimist would turn up hoping for a draw, so when I just looked at the prediction thread 16 out 20 went for a defeat, 3 for a draw and yours truly a win.

Their was a thread about supporters and supporters we are, many posts about getting behind Hurst so why the negativity. Both Barrow and Southend are within reaching distance so we have not been cast adrift. Their are positives if you take the blinkers of so once again I am feeling positively optimistic about the game. Their is  lot to look forward to on Saturday. A good result will send us on our way to stating up.

UTM

EDIT  14.45

Somebody else predicted a win that's a 100% improvement, optimistically positive

The way you swerve from Hurst out three days ago to the sudden positivity, it's more like that time of the month.

Well Ginny as the song says 'Always look on the bright side of life. I try before the game, you never know and as Saint and Greavsie use to say funny old game.

I can never think before a game that we'll loose; otherwise why support them.

Lets be positive they have a flakey defence shipping goals, so we will prob turn out with an 8-1-1 formation again

I find it highly amusing that you should choose that particular song.



And when you fall back into the mud it hurts a lot.
No! None of it was true, none of those things we thought we could see existed at all.
All that was really there was still more misery

False positivity soon crumbles when faced with a setback. Look how everyone who said we need to be positive folded as soon as the match started.

I often feel trepidation about the performance before a game. In fact I can’t remember not feeling that way for 4 years. We always can win the game but honest opinion is I don’t think that will happen.

Having positive thoughts doesn’t do any good unless we’re in the stadium and able to vocalise that positivity. Or has someone discovered that the collective thought waves go through the internet and somehow re-emerge at the pitch.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I normally delude myself into thinking we must be about to turn the corner form wise.

My optimism normally survives until a hour before kick off when the team is announced.

If we can get Hooper to score a hatrick against them surely one of our current lot can at least get us a consolation goal this week

I believe Hooper went on to have a decent scoring record after he left us.
