THERE was so much positivity, energy, and enthusiasm at Monday's fans' forum. What a night!
It proved to be a worthwhile exercise and I hope everyone who went along enjoyed it as much as I did.
There was such a feel-good factor in the room.
What we need to do is take that and spread it over the 3,500 who come to watch us.
If you could transplant that kind of feeling into the ground, it would be like having an extra man on our side.
I spoke to a few supporters once the forum finished and it didn't take them long to identify which games we needed to win this season - namely against Wrexham and Shrewsbury!
You look down the fixture list and see the games you want to win most at the start of the season. For me it was Mansfield, of course, and for the chairman it was Peterborough.
All games are important, but you can't beat local derbies.
I've been lucky enough to have been involved in lots of derbies, from Bristol at the start of my career to the Manchester derby when I was at City.
Style of play goes out of the window in games like that. It's all about winning - and that's what we need to do for the fans when we play our local rivals. nTonight's match against Rochdale has got some people asking whether we should play more games on a Friday night.
There's always a good atmosphere in night matches and we seem to get good crowds on Fridays.
It's a great way to start the weekend - start it on a high by coming to the Saunders Honda Stadium!
But having said that, I've got to say I prefer Saturday afternoon football. I'm a traditionalist but, believe me, if we could pull in 4,000 fans by playing on a Monday afternoon, we'd play then!
I didn't get chance to speak to my opposite number John Gorman after last Saturday's 3-3 draw at Wycombe, but I had a word with some of his backroom staff.
I'm pleased to report they were very impressed with us. They said we were the only League Two team to go there and put them on the back foot.
The important thing is that they enjoyed the game, too. Sometimes you stand there on the touchline and it's hell, but I thoroughly enjoyed Saturday.
You could see the effort was there and it was a great advert for the Football League.
If the Rochdale game is half as exciting, we'll be in for an interesting night.
