A lot of Newcastle United fans have been slating DeAndre Yedlin’s performance in the Toon’s latest Premier League game, which saw them lose to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
The £4.5m-rated American played an integral role in some creative moves for the Toon during this contest, per ChronicleLive. He combined with Jacob Murphy to help his side earn a corner kick in the 60th minute and 20 minutes before that, City centre-back John Stones was forced to concede a corner as a result of Yedlin’s cross.
However, that evidently hasn’t been enough to impress many Newcastle United fans, as a lot of his club’s supporters have been criticising the 27-year-old, who was given a player rating of 5/10 by 90min for his performance in this game because he ‘provided nothing going forward nor at the back.’
So, what have these Newcastle United fans had to say about Yedlin’s performance in this fixture?
The full-back’s quality was called into question by many Toon supporters, with some Newcastle fans declaring that they feel Yedlin offers nothing to their side.
“Yedlin is a terrible footballer. Can’t tell you anything he offers except pace.”
“Yedlin offers avsolutley zero. What’s the point of being a quick, ‘attacking’ full back if you can’t cross or do anything with the ball?”
“Yedlin is having an absolute mare”
“Yedlin is a pathetic footballer”
“Yedlin should not be in our premier league 25. Awful footballer #nufc”
“Yedlin has been shocking”
Was Yedlin Newcastle's worst player versus City?
“Yedlin’s been something of a liability on our precious attacks, in my opinion. He’s missed a cross or two, made a rash decision or two and I’m not sure he’s consistent enough for this match. We also need someone who will get in the way, in defence. Yedlin is not doing that well.”
“Deandre Yedlin & Matt Ritchie is one of the most horrific fullback pairings I’ve ever seen. #NUFC”
“Yedlin probably gone next month.”
So, it certainly seems as though Yedlin disappointed plenty of his club’s supporters via his latest display in the top flight and if the Toon’s decision-makers feel similarly about his performance, then perhaps that doesn’t bode well for his future at St. James’ Park, with his contract set to expire at the end of June.
