IN between biting my nails, I'll be bringing you regular updates from the KC Stadium as the Toon take on Hull City in a game that could ultimately decide whether we stay in the Premier League.
Blog on the Tyne will give you all the colour and drama from inside the ground at a game United cannot afford to lose.
Only Andy Carroll's new contract and Michael Owen's involvement in the match have lifted the nervousness of the fans this week.
And Blackburn's win against Fulham in mid-week has only increased the pressure on the players with only 10 games left.
My blog below will tell you all the action, but we also need you to take part and have your say on the game.

United were downed by a Daniel Cousin goal 10 minutes from time to make it another season with no silverware.

After last week's 5-1 mauling against Liverpool, Joe Kinnear admitted that the two big plus points afterwards were the performance of Shay Given and the magnificent support of the Toon Army.
One week on, and not much has changed.
Shay Given was brilliant again and with 2,700 Toon fans roaring their side to a 0-0 draw at Hull, the club's two biggest plus points were still in tact.
Oh and we're still in the FA Cup...
So Newcastle United are officially a laughing stock then, we are the biggest joke in football and our fans have no right to demand success, trophies or even aspire to top four place?
Once again our friends in the south have given it to Newcastle United fans with both barrels even though none of the current mess has much to do with them, most of the stick flying around stems from the appointment of one of London's favourite sons Dennis Wise being appointed back in January.
Now though with outsiders - a lot of them who probably don't stray beyond Jeff Stelling, Charlie Nicholas and Paul Merson on a Saurday - having a good old go at Newcastle, perhaps as a moment of light relief it's worth taking a LIGHT HEARTED (well you have to laugh at yourself don't you?) look at why most other football clubs are just as bad.
As much as sympathy must go out to broken leg victim Craig Fagan - Danny Guthrie will still need some consoling from within the shattered Newcastle United camp after learning the Hull City player's season in the big time has been decimated.
Make no mistake nobody can condone Guthrie's actions, but it doesn't mean that people shouldn't understand why it happened.
Clearly a young player who had ran his socks off for the cause amidst a difficult backdrop lost the plot in the closing stages before lashing out at Fagan.
