SOME might say I'm being a bit of a dismal Jimmy but I have to say that for us, the season is over, at least as far as talk of the play-offs is concerned anyway.
I know that statement won't to do much to encourage fans along to the Racecourse tomorrow, but I fear eight goals against, one for, two defeats and the rugby on the box will have more of an impact on the attendance than any nonsense I may come up here.
It was in this very column I predicted an unsuccessful bid for a top-six finish a few weeks ago.
I'm not claiming any super-pundit status as a result; I just couldn't see us sustaining a push for the top with the size of the squad at the club.
Since then we've been reminded week in, week out, just how important a couple of new signings can be as suspensions, injuries and fatigue kick in during the latter stages of a season.
Loan signings have been scoring goals left, right and centre in the last couple of weeks for clubs throughout the Second Division.
Our inability to bring in anyone to freshen things up might easily be identified as the main reason why Wrexham couldn't last the pace in a season where a pretty ordinary division seemed to offer an excellent chance of making the play-offs.
It's probably not the only reason though. Some of our key players have suffered a loss of form just at the time when we needed them most.
I'm not easily disappointed after 25 years watching Wrexham.
I'm primed for most of the bad things associated with following a lower league club, but I have been surprised at just how quickly the optimism that built up to the turn of the year has rapidly evaporated in 2004.
Perhaps that's just the Wrexham in me though, always ready to see my pint glass as half-empty.
Half-full, we could still earn a hundred grand in the FAW Premier Cup, and hey, we're still only five points short of the play-offs and whatever happens, we stayed up!
If I do worry, it's only because I care, as my mum used to say.
I should mention that one or two more fans who care have taken the time to put together a new Wrexham fanzine and issue one of The Dismal Jimmy will be on sale tomorrow.
