    I watched the game. Yedlin was not at fault for any of the goals. To my eye, they actually started attacking on his side and switched to the left. I'm an Arsenal fan, btw, and watched to see my team win and watch our boy.

    Wouldn't be surprised. Fan reaction in a loss and actual reality don't always jibe. I was on a plane and had to follow on twitter. But twitter is not reality.

    Yedlin has been late and slow on defense for a while, and now paying the penalty.

    Classic Yedlin. Excellent game then commits a stupid penalty which Palace converts

    That was, simply put, a braindead challenge from Yedlin.

    well, I'm confused. Is he playing Bournemouth or Palace?

    Sounds like it was an all-MLS screw up with Almiron giving the ball away leading up to the PK. At least that os what I read on twitter.

    You could have found out with fewer keystrokes than posing question here.

    This is true, but my question allows for someone else to be my HERO ;)

    Yedlin was a few minutes from at least returning to neutral in the fan comments... He even got the call on a shoulder-shoulder with Zaha in the box earlier... ouch. Footie is a cruel mistress.

    I feel bad and yet don't for DY. Plays a very strong 80 mins and then gets drawn in by Zaha and suckered into a PK. He just has the one cringe worthy moment every game.

    Having said that Rondon had a couple of chances courtesy of Yedlin and he did not put them away.

    I don't blame DY for their performance but his mistake cost them the one point.

    I would not say he had an excellent game before the PK. He did have an excellent attempt on goal. Overall, he adds very little to Newcastle's offense. If he does not have a ton of space, he is of little use on offense. He simply cannot combine with his teammates.

    so would you reckon this summer Newcastle will look for his replacement?

    The bottom line is that as a defender, Yedlin is quite good in attack.

    Not really. He has been neutered by Rafa. He was a much better attacker when Sigi demanded he bomb forward at every opportunity. That attitude carried over to his national team. Now he's just stuck in neutral. Neither good at defending or attacking.
