Crisis? What crisis?
Newcastle United are still far from Premier League safety this season but if ever there was time for a top notch away performance then it had to be away to Pompey.
Relegation fears were eased at Fratton Park and amazingly with the tight nature of the top flight this season another win against Spurs at home this weekend and suddenly fans and players alike can start to think about higher ambitions.
Newcastle's away form this season hadn't yielded a win before the long haul visit to Fratton Park but thanks to some creditable draws on the road this term, things aren't looking nowhere near as bad as they were seven days ago.
Perhaps the key when it comes to supporting Newcastle United is not to get to carried away with lows and not to get too carried away with the highs.
Easier said than done for me but for as long I can remember hysteria has always surrounded Newcastle United and St James's Park.
Firstly because anybody with black and white blood running through their veins, and I class myself in that category, cares deeply about their team enough to think about it for long periods of the day.
Secondly because the focal point of the city is Newcastle United and how the team is doing, on Tyneside you probably get too much stick when the team doesn't perform well compared to teams elsewhere in the country.
Other places, your Southamptons and Readings of the world, Saturday is football day and the scarf is hung up after home games by most and then picked up again a fortnight later.
We don't roll like that round here though and when the team does well the praise is often higher than anywhere else as well.
When it comes to passion, Geordies are the champions of the world for it.
And the Geordie nation loves to see their side play with an equal amount of it when they are carrying the hopes and dreams of the Tyneside public.
Perhaps the penny dropped with United as a team at Fratton Park.
Repeat that sort of performance level and Newcastle will certainly win more games than they lose.
As Michael Owen said get back into the top half in time for the new year and it will be case of what was all the fuss about.
