Jonjo Shelvey has revealed that "everybody" at Newcastle United is now reading from the same page - despite suggestions of a split camp earlier this season.
Reports of Steve Bruce losing the dressing room were also rife during a horrendous run of results earlier this year which put Newcastle on the brink of the relegation zone.
However, Newcastle go into their clash with West Ham with a six-point cushion between themselves and Fulham in 18th place, and Shelvey is determined to extend it further against West Ham.
Speaking to Talksport, Shelvey was asked about the dynamics in the dressing room and relationship between players and coaches, he said: "Everybody will have a say to be fair.
"Jamaal the skipper will always speak up if he feels something is not right. He is a great leader of men.
"Matty Ritchie is always vocal and Dwight (Gayle) is vocal. Everyone says their own piece.
"Sometimes you can have too many voices in the dressing room and you get mixed messages.
"But everybody is on the same page now.
"Everybody has the chance to have their say that's the good thing.
"We take it on board. We have great coaching staff here and everybody is constantly in contact with each other."
