Now that the dust has settled (for five minutes at least) Newcastle United fans appear to have given Joe Kinnear the warmest welcome possible given the difficult and complex circumstances at St James's Park.
Kinnear has admitted he is not the choice of the people but will block out any negative feedback in order to do the best possible job while he is in charge.
He's supposed to be in the manager's chair for six to eight games (even he didn't seem to know) but you do get the feeling this could rumble on longer.
AND so the soap opera arrives in the East End to show them all how it's done properly.
We've had plenty of twists and turns when it comes to Newcastle United in the last two weeks but if we are to expect the unexpected once more would it be beyond the realms of fantasy for caretaker boss Chris Hughton to lead his bewildered troops to an unlikely win at his old club?
Well, if that is to be the case then certainly this week at the club's training ground it has been a case of facing facts and setting new goals.
