With all due respect I think we should all keep our mouths shut about going up.
It`s that same old bragging crap, I have said all of this before, this is why we are disliked.
Let`s see where we are in April, or you could all end up looking very silly.

Villadave, with all due respect, stating that we may stand a chance of going up is hardly bragging that we will go up, As I also stated December is a tough month that could be the making or breaking of us this season and I don't believe that any fan would perceive that as bragging either, it's fact. Are we all supposed to wait until May before we are allowed to comment on anything regarding our chances of promotion? if other fans wish to dislike us for hoping and believing in our club than so be it, but I for for one won't be losing any sleep over that.

If we were sitting in the lower half of the table I'm sure a few fans on here would be mentioning relegation and calling for change which is the same thing really, would you then perceive that as bragging too. The word banter means a friendly exchange of remarks in regards to a certain topic and as far as I am aware that is exactly what is on these pages.

In regards to looking very silly, none of us are certain on the future so every comment on here could potentially make any of us look silly, from match predictions to team selection most of it is guess work based on our own individual opinions and that stands true for every other clubs fans comments too.

AVillaFan, it appears you have taken my post as a personal response to your comments, far from it.
My comment is a response to people saying we "will" do this, we "will" do that, that is called making a statement.
My post was not aimed at posters who are saying we might even still get promoted or we may make the play offs.
And as far as looking silly is concerned, I have seen many people look very silly and lose a lot of money spouting what they or their team are going to do.
I am not foolish enough to realise that friendly banter does not exist, but there is a big difference in taking a tongue in cheek guess, than there is in making an assumption.

Ok mate no worries, crossed wires I think. I've heard a few fans myself over the years with their claims of what their teams will achieve, I guess every club has a few.

Exactly, thanks for your reply.
So easy to get crossed wires when trying to make a point.
