TO BE. OR NOT TO BE

Post by SASCHA on Sun Mar 27, 2016 7:16 pm

To be, or not to be
That is the question
This is of course a famous quote from possibly Shakespeares greatest work.
The central character (Hamlet) now consumed with thoughts of suicide.
In fairness to the Prince this followed the tragic death of his father.
Not the possible relegation of his local sports team.
But I guess this tortured soul was ready to give up, seeing no way out.
A shame it wasn't his local team, as I'm sure there would have been some way out.

We will not be relegated should we fail to win tomorrow.
We will not be relegated if St. Albans are victorious that same lunchtime.
But God forbid, should we lose tomorrow, then no, we still wont be relegated.
There are seven games with a possible 21 points available to those of you out there with any positivity left.
Will the amazing turnaround in results  by St. Albans continue?
Will Weston-Super-Mare  continue to grind out positive results or collapse ?
Or will Bath City replicate some of their excellent performances since Gary Owers took over ?
Only perhaps this time those performances will be rewarded with a points accumulation.
This is a time for positive thinking and belief, I believe , what about the rest of you.
I know a few who have clearly lost faith, can I blame them? perhaps not, that's their choice. Perhaps choice is the wrong word.
For some reason those same people appear to have little good to say about the present manager.

Gary Owers has taken on a totally demoralised squad of players at a club with financial constraints.
Has found it necessary to dip into the loan market, not my greatest love by any means, desperation times.
The players appear fitter and individually their performances have improved.
Despite our league position now actually being worse than when the now departed management were here,
the atmosphere around the ground (APPEARED) to have improved.
Yes Martin, the results haven't really improved as such and the mistakes are still being made along with our failure to take what chances come along. That is down to the individual players, it is for them to deliver and despite what we all feel about Pratty.
Too late now, but if he is a striker and stays along with Gary next year then hopefully some of this non stop 100 mile per hour chasing will be coached out of him and the result will be a twenty goal per season man and not a knackered man. I am in no way criticising Dave Pratt and have nothing but admiration for the way be commits himself. Thought I would clear that up before I'm slated.

So keep believing and forget about Shakespeare and his "To be. or not to be"
At the end of the season it's more a case of  "Whatever will be will be"

Just for the record Martin,  I have never suggested that we will reach mid table.
I did however state that I believed Mr Owers would take us well clear and I still do.
59 points possible, almost the play offs.
Also for the record- I believe big  Nick McCootie will have a say in our survival , a positive one that is.

On the matter of motivational speeches, perhaps a  word would not go a miss on a few strikers, much like the rather unorthodox one given to Scotty Partridge at Dover many years ago.

Amen to that!

And it may have been unorthodoxox at Dover but it worked, so perhaps I'll try it on your predicted saviour... Very Happy

At the start of the season we were in "A Midsummer Night's Dream"; are we now collectively "Yorick"?  Crying or Very sad

Were Lee and Adie "Romeo & Juliet"?  Think about it and explain why by the end of the season. scratch  

We are certainly in "The Tempest".

Sorry Beau but could I answer that one now.
You do after all say  "by the end of the season"

We don't need to wait until the end of the season to know they were a tragedy
Helped by the Board of Directors of course.

@Sascha - Close but not quite the full story, come the end of the season, it could be before, the analogy could be made.

To be or not to be certainly beats "it is what it is"!

I tend to think of Adie and Archie as Keith and Orville.

@Sir Ged - You are correct but there is more to the story. Think of the family situations?

Where is comrade in this "compo"?
