If Pancake Man and Co keep this up we'll be up by Shrove Tuesday!
What's the best way to make yourself an instant hero at St James' Park?
Well running round like a man possessed in two sub appearances so far and then scoring a strong contender for goal of the season so far isn't a bad way of going about it.
And more appearances like this from Fabrice Pancrate could turn out to be a superb find this season.
Desperation or just plain shrewd judgement by Chris Hughton?
The first signs of Pancrate looked good in his reserve team run out against Hartlepool but fears that he wasn't up to it when he fizzled out due to lack of match practice have since been allayed.
And when Hughton was keen to keep on playing down his arrival when on trial, not to mention trying to smuggle him in and keep him a secret it looked like the judgement of Sheffield United and Burnley looked to be correct.
Whatever your verdict so far, nobody could complain after his Christmas cracker against Watford.
For if the three points picked up against Watford go on to decisive come the end of the season, then what price can you put on the goal that won it when we had 10 men?
Keep it coming Pancake man and we'll be promoted by Shrove Tuesday!!
