DeAndre Yedlin has spoken up about Newcastle United’s current situation, and he’s rather positive about it. At least publicly. Stating that, “We know what we need to do to get out of it. We’ve got the characteristics to get out of it. We’ll try to put those into place and do what need to do to get out of this hole.”

It’s easy to state that, however, as it’s quite clear everyone is aware of what is needed to get the club out of the situation that they’re in, the real issue is whether or not the club is talented enough to do it. Yedlin obviously believes that Newcastle United do, but the squad has not been cohesive, and they have failed to create.

He also had this to say, “Obviously, the biggest thing that we wanted to do was not lose – I think that’s the most important thing.”

I disagree Yedlin. I sincerely disagree. What the club should have walked away with was a win, but instead a single point that has gotten the club no more safer from relegation than we were last week.

It would seem that the club is attempting to do some damage control as fans are beginning (beginning or just worsening?) to lose their patience with not only the players but Rafa Benitez, the manager, as well.

We’ll see what happens, but I’m sad to say that I don’t think the majority of the fanbase agrees with Yedlin’s sentiments. The fanbase has grown restless, and the players are starting to show that they’re feeling it.
