Over to Hugh!
Newcastle United's future may well be in the balance but amidst the pandemonium surrounding whether fans stay or go at the end of the season, in control of what many now see as a sinking ship is the calm figure of Chris Hughton.
When Hughton arrived at St James's many Toon fans uttered: "not another Cockney."
And while another dubious Tottenham link walked through the door at St James's Park 12 months ago, many were left to wonder who came up with the idea of bringing in Mr Spurs - certainly none of it fitted in with the Keegan way.
Regardless of what you think about the future of the team though and regardless of what you think of Chris Hughton - United's Premier League future is in the hands of the ex-Eire international.
Speaking to Hughton this week he admitted that he doesn't switch off from all things Newcastle United and relaxation is difficult at the helm of what has turned into a black and white monster.
Hughton was left in charge when Kevin Keegan walked out back in September and after doing the job on numerous occasions at White Hart Lane, it's fair to say he's had plenty of practice.
Now more than ever, it could turn out to be Hughton who is Newcastle United's unlikely saviour.
For Newcastle to be where they are is wrong for a host of reasons.
But Hughton, pigeon holed as a coach in football, is paid to manage situations and that situation is to save Newcastle from relegation after the soap opera to end all soap operas on Barrack Road this season.
As ever Toon fans will get behind the team but Hughton's task is to pick up four wins from the last 13 games and the sooner the better.
After that it's up to the Toon board to sort out the shambles that have left Newcastle in deep trouble in the Premier League.
The managerial situation first and foremost and then six or seven players (maybe more) to bolster the squad and give them a realistic chance of getting a respectable finish.
For now though, nobody can lose focus on reaching the magic 39 or magic 40 mark to keep Newcastle's top flight status in tact.
