Make no mistake Rob Kelly can write his comparatively unknown name in lights this weekend when Leicester City take on Southampton in the FA Cup Fourth Round.
Former late-entry journalist Kelly will be writing his own headlines.
And what kind they are will depend on whether he can avoid the mistakes of Craig Levein, the man he has temporarily replaced in City's managerial hot seat.
Kelly, interviewed by the Official Leicester City website, said he believed 'a lot of what we were doing (under Craig) was right' but he hinted at one or two changes for Saturday's home game...'nothing radical,' and 'I'm not going to tell you,' were his mischievous comments.
Perhaps the biggest and most encouraging hint was his remark that, while he knew George Burley's Southampton will be well organised he wanted to 'concentrate on what we are going to do rather than worrying about them'.
That suggests a positive approach, just the encouragement that further could buoy up the mood of fans excited by the possibility of a new and sunnier dawn at Leiceser.
Kelly, a midfielder who made 27 appearances for City between 1982-84, knows that he and goalkeeping coach Mike Stowell, both ex-Wolves men, are only likely to have a momentary chance to make their mark as caretaker managers.
Perhaps two or three games.
But, as City Chief Executive Tim Davies said, if they won those games they could put pressure on the Board and even if it wasn't enough pressure they can write a huge advertisement for themselves.
Kelly has already known some success in his coaching career, guiding Blackburn's trainees to the FA Youth Cup final.
Now he is obviously determined, in his own window of nationally significant opportunity, to have a real go at Souhampton.
