“I’m Going To Have To Battle For That” 26-Year-Old Says As He Gets Closer To Return

DeAndre Yedlin has given an interview with nufc.co.uk where he has spoken about his long recovery from a recurring problem. After struggling with pain for 18 months, it was finally decided that DeAndre have sports hernia surgery in May.

DeAndre is back in training now as he gets closer to being match fit and ready for a return to first-team action. He has not featured for Newcastle since losing his place in April to Javier Manquillo.

While he did make 28 starts last season and has been the primary right-back since he joined in 2016, DeAndre knows he’s not going to just waltz back into the side.

This is what DeAndre said about his return to training:

“Now, I’m getting closer and closer. It’s just about going out and proving every day what I can do in training, and hopefully getting an opportunity in the games.”

DeAndre also spoke about the fight for places at right-back where Newcastle have three first-team players in the position:

“My objective now is to get back to 100 percent and get to the point where I’m batting for a place on the field. The guys on the right side, Javier and Emil, have done great and the team have got some good results, so it’s not like I’m going to just step right back in.

“I’m going to have to battle for that, but that’s the competition of the team, and that’s what makes the team better. I’m excited, and I’m ready to do that.”

There will be some high-intensity training sessions for the right-back trio of Emil Krafth, Javier Manquillo, and DeAndre Yedlin. They all must fight it out to see who will get the starting nod.

All three possess different qualities, and Steve Bruce may use a rotation system depending on the opponent. Though, so far he has preferred his new signing Emil Krafth who has started the last four Premier League games.

    Perez had the buyout clause put in his contract when Rafa was still here.

    I’ve got no doubt that getting stick from the fans had an effect and sticking his fingers in his ears after scoring was as good as two fingers up. Hardly something a player would do, unless he knew he was going.

    He had also been quoted in the Spanish press a few times saying he thought the time he’d spent with us was long enough.

    Add that all up and even if Rafa had stayed and Leicester matched the buyout I very much doubt he would have stayed.

    “Rafa would still have lost Perez due to the release clause and itโ€™s doubtful he could have signed Rondon on the age issue”
    Well I think what you’re arguing is what is known as a moot point, the whole point in Rafa fighting for more was that so he didn’t end up in Bruce’s situation for a third year running. A condition of Rafa staying put, imo was that Rondon would have stayed, as for Perez maybe Rafa would have insisted on him being given a new deal, maybe he would have been happy for the 30M to spend, maybe he suggested the 30M buy out clause, who knows. As for that crap Danish bloke who had a shite world cup, how many on here said we dodged a bullet with Bobbybee’s now famous/infamous Tammy Tap in, I also remember a few saying how slow and how few goals Rondon scored. Despite finishing lower than our first season back in the PL last year there was a real sense we had a good honest team getting better and better, even those willing to hive Bruce a chance have to admit that we have got absolutely no hope of achieving any tangible form of success other than survival, which unfortunately some people are actually judging that as a success.

    I think The Chronicle have been given a box and threatened with legal action of some sort if they report badly on us, they are firmly in Mikey’s pocket.

    Jail, no idea why we would need to take a loan out, we’ve made money every season other than relegation seasons – we spent way less than the mooted 61 million as Linton and ASM fees included add one that won’t be triggered unless certain conditions met. Received around 35 million from sales
    One thing could be that Ashley insists on paying cash up front whilst we only receive fees from buying clubs in installments … still no idea why Ashley insists on this as we’re possibly the only club in the PREM that deals this way.

    Very hard to argue against that, even for the most vehement Jabba supporters.

    Jail “even those willing to give Bruce a chance have to admit that we have got absolutely no hope of achieving any tangible form of success other than survival”

    I think the jury is still out – one really poor result based on a really poor performance, one very good result based on a very good performance and a handful of reasonable performances with mixed results is not enough to say one way or the other what kind of success or otherwise we’ll achieve.

    Then the debate becomes ‘what defines success’. I don’t see that as avoiding relegation, but for a developing squad I’d probably take top ten as being successful, with at least some progress in the FA Cup.

    Rosalia Lombardo (13 December 1918 โ€“ 6 December 1920) was an Italian child who died of pneumonia. Rosalia’s father, official Mario Lombardo, was sorely grieved upon her death, so he approached Alfredo Salafia, a noted embalmer, to undertake the task of preserving her.

    The worrying thing is that transfers are done, like Robleenio pointed out, wages are incorporated into transfer fees, unless it’s for a major upgrade in training facilities then what’s it for. If it is for facilities then it’s a massive fingers up to Rafa who was told they are good enough.

    As for what the loan is for, I can’t say, but it makes no sense for it to be to cover wages. We’ve never needed that before, so why now?

    It has to be to pay a big lump up front (and I don’t mean Andy Carroll) – an infrastructure project, a chunk off Ashley’s loan or a player. The latter makes little sense either, so we’re left with one of the other two in my mind.

    If it’s the loan, it’ll be interesting to see how our ‘financial saviour’ spins saddling the club with the exact same debt he apparently ‘saved’ us from when he bought us and paid off the loans, especially as those loans would have been repaid by this point had he not ‘saved’ us.

    Unless they’re preparing to pay Steve Bruce’s contract up already

    Honestly we have no choice but to give Bruce a chance, do we really want to, no.
    But heโ€™s the manager and we will just have to wait and see if he can do some magic or he magically disappears in December due to results, just enough time to get Claudio in to steady the ship.

    Nowt to do with footy, about the local area.

    I live in Heaton and I’m always through the park with the dawg.

    Theres been the odd parrot, yes I said parrot in the park. Over recent weeks a few more have arrived.

    If you’ve kids or grandkids they’re worth a look at, I’ve seen them several times and I’m still buzzing when I see them.

    Theres about 2 or 3 dozen now, mostly hang around near the old bowling green that’s now for dogs.
    Theres a pear tree and theres always some in there.

    Heaton park bowling green, get yourself a look see.

    I suspect the parrots have traveled from London, quite a few down there.

    They came when someone released some from pinewood studios, they’re originally from India I believe and can handle the cold weather.

    They are probably parakeets

    I saw a show years ago on the ones in London, I think they’re just spreading through the country.

    It was a while ago but if memory serves, north India, Himalayas I’m sure was mentioned but it was over 10 years ago.

    Either way, they’re bonnie little things.

    Who knows, as I say I suspect they’re from the birds that got out from Pinewood studios.

    The show I saw was about 10 years ago and there was thousands in London, only natural they’ll spread.

    Time to adapt?

    May have been 70s 80s they got out, cant remember.
