Young Northern Ireland full-back Jamal Lewis has just been thrown into a cauldron of expectation at St James' Park.
By signing for Newcastle United, he will be playing in front of 50,000 demanding fans every other week - so I want to know, does he have the thick skin required to deal with it?
He has a £15m price tag around his neck and Newcastle fans will be on his back from day one to make sure they have their money's worth.
You can't blame Norwich for letting him go, especially at that price.
I know they turned down an approach from Liverpool, but with add-ons possibly going up to £20m, that is just extraordinary for the 22-year-old.
In my opinion, having watched Sam McCallum, Norwich have a player of a similar ilk to Jamal who can probably defend better.
Newcastle manager Steve Bruce must know Jamal isn't the best defender, especially at the back post where Norwich conceded quite a few goals last season and he was caught out.
But Bruce can work with him and improve Jamal as a defender.
I found it strange, though, that when Jamal signed, Bruce said he "is an exciting prospect". For £15m, I would want more than just an exciting prospect.
Jamal needs to vastly improve. There needs to be an end product to those advancing runs down the flanks, he can't keep turning back, while if he doesn't track back after losing a ball, dear help him at St James' Park.
Newcastle, for me, are a different level. This is no disrespect to the Canaries, but what was acceptable at Norwich may not be good enough to 50,000 passionate Geordie fans.
I've played at St James' Park and the passion the fans have for their club is incredible. They are amazing supporters, but also quick to get on a player's back if he is not producing.
Jamal will need that thick skin.
This is a great opportunity for him; he's back in the Premier League, should play regularly and has the chance to learn from Bruce and his coaches. I want to see him improve dramatically at Newcastle.
I hope he does well because a much-improved Jamal Lewis can only be good for Northern Ireland.
It will be interesting to see how he copes with the pressure.
Newcastle fans will be desperate for him to deliver straight away. When you arrive at that price at a club like Newcastle, there is no honeymoon period.
With the current lockdown restrictions, Jamal is maybe fortunate that he will not have the Geordie fans on his back from his first game. This should allow him time to settle in.
Newcastle is also a pretty lively city, but with footballers currently in their bubbles with the Premier League protocols in place, he would be advised to concentrate solely on his football.
Newcastle have bought a number of players in recent days so their fans will be expecting them to have a decent season.
Life will change for Jamal - this is an incredible opportunity for him and an amazing club to prosper at.
I really hope he listens and learns to take his game up a level.
I've always believed that if you highlight a problem, then you need to bring a solution to the table.
So today, I'm going to do the Irish FA a massive favour - and no commission is required.
One of the biggest issues I perceive within the Irish FA is that they have nobody at executive level with elite-level football experience.
Now that Michael O'Neill has left, nobody within the association who has the vital high-level experience has a portfolio which covers football from the grassroots to the senior international team.
When Michael snapped his fingers, Chief Executive Patrick Nelson did what he was asked.
It wasn't always like that. Michael had plenty of rows with Patrick in the early days as he fought for the senior team to have the very best of everything, but soon, following his immortal status in Northern Ireland, those rows became gentle conversations and Michael got what he wanted.
Ian Baraclough is the Northern Ireland senior team manager and nothing else. The Director of Football role has not come with the job.
Therefore, I believe there is an opening for a vastly experienced former player who is more interested in the administration and directorship roles than being a manager.
I put forward Aaron Hughes to be considered as a non-Executive Director with the IFA.
While doing our coaching badges in Belfast a few weeks back, Hughesy and I spoke at length about the issues concerning the IFA and what our plans would be to change things and make them better.
I felt they were encouraging conversations, with Aaron and I agreeing on strategy and the issues that frustrate.
Remember, after Nigel Worthington resigned, Hughesy quit international football as he wasn't happy with the standards on offer for the senior international team in terms of coaching, preparation, facilities and travel. He was only persuaded back by Michael, who promised him that there would be definite change.
Aaron is currently undergoing a director's course with UEFA along with his coaching badges, and I know he wanted to do his dissertation on how important it was for Northern Ireland to have a national training centre.
Hughesy has high standards, he has played at the very top for club and country and he knows exactly what should be on offer for the footballers of Northern Ireland.
He is probably more reserved than I am when making his point but despite his quiet demeanour, and having known him a long time, I know he will certainly make his opinion known.
Hughes will see, understand and offer perspectives that the rest of the Irish FA wouldn't even contemplate because they don't have that elite-level experience.
We always hear about how important it is for players to give something back. That is usually on the training ground as a coach or manager.
But Hughesy could play a major role in the boardroom and, even though the Irish FA are the gift that keeps on giving at times, I would certainly send praise in their direction if they made this smart appointment.
