Is this the biggest week of the season?
Newcastle United continued to prepare for their huge clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers today with the stakes high going into the first of eight crucial matches in the Premier League.
So far this season there have been so many twists and turns and important weeks described as "pivotal" or "vital" by many Toon stars.
Defeat against Wolves though is unthinkable with Mick McCarthy's side just four points behind the Mags and in the final relegation place that took Newcastle down two years ago.
Unlike two years ago though relegation does not seem as inevitable as the ill-fated 2008/09 season where, if we're honest, nobody connected with the black and whites ever knew where they stood.
The managerial changes ranged from Keegan to Hughton to Kinnear back to Hughton and then Toon legend Alan Shearer.
Under KK, lack of transfer control eventually sent him over the edge again while Hughton twice knew he was only holding fort.
Shearer, only had eight games as manager before the club was put up for sale during one of the most uncertain and unpleasant periods of the club's history.
The backdrop to the 2010/11 campaign is different.
The club isn't for sale and despite just one managerial change compared to four, the second part of the season has been about Alan Pardew laying foundations at Newcastle.
The return of John Carver and the retweaking of the backroom team, plus installation of new video technology means that time is required to allow the new systems to have the desired effect.
Yet lack of results in recent weeks means that pressure has intensified in the past month and a run of one win in 10 means Pardew has plenty of work to do in terms of winning over fans.
The thinking fan (usually the silent majority) knows this will take time.
While others have already let off steam at some of Pardew's decisions and in the aftermath of the departure of the popular Hughton earlier this season it has been no surprise with the Londoner admitting it would happen the day he took the job.
Certainly, hopes of a "Hollywood ending" to the season appear to be over just a month after disuccsions of a late tilt for a Europa League place.
Now a respectable top 10 finish seems to be the order of the day.
First, United must shake off the dreaded R word and beating Wolves in a six pointer would be the right way to start going about it.
With hard games away to Villa and then at home to Manchester United to come, the run-in will not be easy with trips to Liverpool and Chelsea also left on the fixture list.
Thinking like that when looking at the seven fixtures to go after Wolves simply underlines the importance of Saturday.
Which makes this week for me, the biggest week of the season.
