Guy Moussi believes anything is possible for Nottingham Forest as season draws to a finale
IT is perhaps a touch of Gallic nonchalance, but it also feels distinctly like simple, old fashioned confidence.
But when asked if Nottingham Forest can still compete for a top-two finish in the Championship, Guy Moussi responds with a shrug of the shoulders and a straight forward response.
"Why not? Anything is possible?"
But, while the French midfielder admits the entire outlook of the club's season has changed since the return of Billy Davies, Moussi also warns of one thing.
And that is that getting carried away is not something that will be tolerated by the Scotsman.
A run of five consecutive wins might have carried them up the Championship table and into the play-off places – as well as sending self belief levels soaring in the dressing room.
But Moussi insists Forest have not discussed the prospect of breaking the club record of seven consecutive league wins.
Nothing, he says, has been on the agenda beyond their preparations for tomorrow's trip to Hull, who currently sit in that all-important second place.
Can Forest climb that high between now and the end of the campaign?
"To be fair, we are not watching our position at the moment," says Moussi.
"But, with the team spirit and belief we have at the minute though, why not? Anything is possible.
"Six weeks ago, when Billy came back, if anyone had predicted the run we would go on, nobody would believe it.
"We don't have to think about winning all the remaining games, we just have to take them one at a time.
"When he came back, he told us to look at every one of the remaining games, one at a time.
"That is what we have to continue to do. To be honest, I did not even know about the record for unbeaten wins until you just told me now.
"That is not our target, at least not in the sense that we want to get into the record books.
"We will not be thinking about getting seven wins. Our first aim is to get the six wins.
"Then we can worry about the seventh.
"If we can break the record, if we can win another five matches in a row, we would be a long way towards winning promotion. That is what matters."
The importance of momentum, however, is not lost on the midfielder, who knows that a win over one of their promotion rivals could be the most significant of their recent run.
"We are on a really good run and we have to keep it going," he said.
"It is coming at the right time, it has got us into the play-offs and now we need to be ready to play every game as if it is a cup final.
"If we can do that, we will when see what can happen. But, at the minute, it is a pleasure.
"We are on a good run and we won away from home as well, which is good for the spirit and for the confidence.
"Billy is focused on everything, he will make sure that nobody is getting complacent.
"We can gain more confidence with each win, but that is a good thing.
"Still, we will only look at the next game."
For Forest, after tomorrow, that next game will not come for almost two weeks, as the international break brings with it a hiatus from the action until Brighton visit the City Ground on Saturday, March 30.
"It is bad and it is also good, having a break," adds Moussi.
"Radi is going away with the Polish team, he will go back and see his family. It will be a positive experience for him to be back in the Poland side as well.
"When he comes back, he will be positive and more confident, I hope. It is a good thing.
"If you are not involved with your international side, you will have the opportunity to go and spend some time with the family.
"It is coming at the right time, to give us the last boost we need to get into the play-offs."
Facing Hull and Brighton is the toughest test yet since Davies' return.
But they also bring with them an opportunity, with Forest hoping to take points off two of their immediate rivals.
"Those games are coming at the right time. Maybe we can get into the top two, who knows?," he says.
"But, at the same time, we are playing teams who are fighting for a place in the play-offs as well.
"We are fighting for our futures as well, for our position in the play-offs.
"We have not got any pressure, we are just winning game after game.
"There is more expectation, but it is good that people are talking about us now.
"It is a wonderful opportunity for us to get into the play-offs following a tough season.
"We are in the position, now it is up to us to do what we have to do."
As Moussi says, if Forest can maintain their recent form, who knows what is possible?
