We're not out of the woods yet
If such a thing as time travel existed I'd certainly be tempted to go back to almost 16 years ago to March 29 when Newcastle United had just scrapped it out with Sunderland to take three points many people felt were enough to keep the Magpies in the old Second Division.
Back then there was a feeling of relief in the air on Tyneside and that with more than a month left of the season, Newcastle were pretty much safe and they'd turned the corner - but it still came down to a white knuckle ride in the last two games against Pompey and Leicester City before you could rest properly.
Before you start, this isn't a negative rant to fuel any doom and gloom merchants but merely a reality check ahead of the vital game with Spurs.
The plus points for United are that with seven games left they have breathing space with a nine point cushion over doomed Fulham but just a six point advantage over Fulham.
True, Bolton have a tougher test at home to Arsenal compared to Newcastle's trip to defensively leaky Spurs.
Basically whatever you think, just like in 1992, Newcastle could get sucked right back into things and while there's plenty of talk about signing players for next season being bandied around it could be all in vain if Newcastle don't finish of their survival task.
Spurs away is never easy and even last year we could have been 4-1 or 5-1 down before Glenn Roeder's side turned it round to win 3-2.
Beat Spurs and I might just start thinking about that sunny August day with KK's new look United running out at a packed St James's Park to get the season off to a flying start (maybe a Paul Bracewell style figure launching a thunderbolt home early in the game like against Southend in 92!) - lose it and we'll still be keeping an eye on how others are doing.
ARE YOU CONFIDENT UNITED ARE SAFE YET?
