Welcome aboard Sergeant Major
In the aftermath of Newcastle United's game at Middlesbrough and recent home games - it has to be said the current crop of players require a good old fashioned kick up the backside.
Well the good news is they are about to get one.
Step forward big Nigel Pearson.
There's no way Pearson is coming in to stand on Glenn Roeder's toes at United, but the former Sheff Wed hero is a welcome addition to the Toon coaching staff.
In his playing days he was a gritty centre-back who didn't take any flak from anyone and skippered Sheff Wed to victory in the League Cup back in 1991 with the Owls then in the Second Division.
Now Pearson arrives at United with a fine background of coaching with the FA and a decent track record as a manager.
He's just left West Brom at the right end of Championship as number 2 to Bryan Robson and then caretaker boss.
He also cut his teeth in management with Carlisle United - saving them from relegation on the last the day of the season back in 1999 when goalkeeper Jimmy Glass struck a last gasp winner on a historic day in Cumbria.
At the Riverside he looked like a US marine in stature when he briefed the Press after the Boro and the journalists on the United beat certainly stood to attention too!
The ex-FA coach already has the respect of the United dressing room and took no time at all to prowl the touchline at Boro during the 1-0 loss.
And one of the United players has already admitted when he met Pearson for the first time on Saturday morning, they'd have agreed with big Nige if he'd told them it was Monday morning, such was the impact of the ex-Boro defender.
United might have their hands tied in the transfer market, but might have made one of the signings of season in the boot room.
*The next talk in is at Idols prior to the Charlton game on Saturday at 4pm. The guest taking your questions will be former Toon goalkeeping legend Kevin Carr.
