Toon all geared up to finish on a high
Kevin Keegan is that determined to finish the campaign on a high that he's kept pre-season plans a total secret from his players.
It's all quite amazing considering at one point the season had been written off completely with relegation a real possibility.
But the fact that KK is focused on nine more points from the last three games is superb indication that things are going the right way too.
No goals conceded in April so far and the chance to overtake the likes of Spurs and Saturday's opponents the Hammers is still very much up for grabs.
Off the pitch Luka Modric has been on Tyneside at the plush Malmaison Hotel to discuss a move to Newcastle United.
Whether the big guns such as Arsenal and Chelsea will gatecrash the party and snatch the glory remains to be seen.
But all the talk is about getting another three points against West Ham with KK's team picking itself at the moment.
Competition to get on the bench is now as intense as ever which is how it should be, everybody wants to be part of this team now at St James's Park.
For Newcastle to extend that hunger outside the four walls they need to win the last three games and keep the feel-good factor snowballing.
And that all starts with three points in the East End.
