I know many of you will be wallowing in despair, gazing into the distance out the window, sitting on your sofa miserable without the ability to communicate to loved ones all while your fingers start twitching as you grab your phone and log into social media to write another negative comment about anything PAFC related.

How many of you have really thought about your comments in a deeper context and questioned yourself if you would be writing the same comments if it wasn't for a slight change?

Perhaps Ladapos effort was ruled to cross the line yesterday?
Perhaps Sarcevic put away his chance 6 yards out against rovers?
The list goes on...
And now question the difference in what you would have been writing.

It is those fine margins that can turn a season around. We just haven't been fortunate (or skillful) enough to take advantage of those key moments. I have seen enough this season (think Coventry second half, rovers last 20 minutes , parts of Portsmouth second half) where I, and the rest of you would have seen that we do have the ability to be a good side and achieve something but we just haven't took advantage of our opportunities.

When we eventually do, which could be Saturday. We will start building momentum. There may be moments when we return into a bad run of form but remember, that will be temporarily.

So, please try to think about things in a wider context at this early stage of the season and have some faith.

**looking forward to receiving comments below which sums up the point I'm making above **

And if my aunt had testicles...
Excuses aren't good enough. It's blatantly obvious to most the team is not playing well. You make your own luck.we could have been 2 or 3 down before Ladapo's effort.

You will always achieve more in life by having a positive approach than a negative one.

Can’t polish a turd

And this team has a plethora of poor footballers. That’s the point

.... or we could have been 2 or 3 up. If your Auntie had testicles works both way.

How can you be positive and up beat watching your team lose every week?
Lack luster, and most of what I saw yesterday not good enough players to wear the shirt.
Get real this team will get us relegated, a new manager and backing team cost money, does Mr Hallett stick or twist?

(1) Do not change anything and watch us get relegated, and have a half filled refurbished grandstand when complete?
(2) Invest in quality players to keep us in this division, and a full refurbished grandstand? It's all about bums on seats, but the entertainment has to be enjoyable, and so far this season that has not happened.
The crowds are obviously dropping, janners are not as thick as some people think.

Football isn't about what might have happened, it's about what did happen. What ifs are totally irrelevant.

Just a small difficulty there. We did NOT create 2 or 3 chances. Apart from that a perfectly reasonable argument! ?!

Yes like all the bankers and City financiers encouraged to never think there would be a crash pre 2008. That worked well didn't it ?

We did, though. Sawyer was getting up the wing and getting crosses in. Those were chances that we should have capitalised on. It seems that a shot off target or saved are only classed as a chance, when a cross 6” too high is not seen as a chance, but is arguably a better chance than a long range shot.

We could have been 3 or 4 up, we could have been 4 or 5 down. Your Auntie could have balls, but your Uncle might also have nice tits.

The only thing that matters is that the crosses need someone on the end of them, shots need to be on target and if we’re going to insist on letting the opposition come onto us and defend inside the box, the defence have to win the headers. There’s only a few areas which are letting us down, key areas. Get them right and there’s not really much needed to turn the tanker around.

A cross is not a chance! Doesn't make any sense. If we had played better passed better crossed better shot better yes we could have been 3 or 4 up but quite unlikely with those players.
Not much needed to turn the tanker around you say. Yes perhaps just 4 or 5 new players.

A cross is a chance. Put a cross into the area where the striker doesn’t connect with it is a just as much a chance as someone drilling it wide from 20yds. The work has been done, just the finish is missing.
