The naked truth for Toon fans
The tired old cliche about waiting for a bus before two come out at once could well be the case on Sunday for Newcastle United at Spurs.
I mean after the dizzy heights of beating Fulham at the weekend the Geordie nation rediscovered what it was like to taste that winning feeling once more after a steady performance against the Cottagers.
Mike Ashley reportedly said: "Let's get naked and have a party!" as he entered the director's suite after the win before Toon fans drank the Bigg Market and the Quayside dry!
True, you cannot get carried away by beating the mighty Fulham but on a season of few positives there were plenty that emerged from the 2-0 win at St James's Park.
Also true, this team isn't as bad as critics have been making out.
Yes, it isn't anywhere near the top four or even the top eight at this very moment but it still contains some key players, key players you can build a squad around.
An enforced switch to 4-3-3 by KK in recent games appears to be just what the doctor ordered although he has felt the need to revert to 4-4-2 to see the last two matches out.
Wingers have been sacrificed in favour of a midfield engine room assigned with the task of protecting the back four and generating chances for a front three of Mark Viduka, Michael Owen and Oba Martins.
Nicky Butt did what Nicky Butt does and ran his socks off while both Geremi (who set up both goals) and Joey Barton who played his best game in a black and white shirt.
Owen and Viduka responded with goals against Fulham while Martins is getting closer game by game with his pace scaring the life out of the opposition.
His withdrawal on Saturday was met by boos again but there were no tears this time.
Quite the opposite in fact as Martins responded with a round of applause for the fans who love him.
Talk on Sunday that he wanted to quit the club if he didn't play quickly emerged but Martins has said on countless occasions he is happy on Tyneside.
And with two seasons at Newcastle now in the number 9 shirt and no distractions in the African Nations Cup next term the campaign under KK, with a fresh start to come, could be right up the Nigerian's street.
As far as Michael Owen is concerned, my humble opinion is that he looks as happy as he ever has at Newcastle.
But that's not a huge surprise either.
After all this is the longest he's gone without injury and with a new England manager in place, who takes no c*** from his players, the challenge to be a hero for club and country is certainly one he looks to be relishing.
Spurs next and we're all looking forward to it.
Never thought I'd be saying that a few weeks ago.
