Interesting article (some of it seems a bit sensational though). Chelsea did apparently offer a four year extension but he turned it down.

He also seems committed to playing for our U-23's

Getting bogged down at the talent hoarding Chelsea was good and bad for young Kyle. He was always played with super talented players and was viewed as the guy who could hold it together and make the team work. It will be interesting to see if he can adjust to playing an inferior team with inferior players. Do the right thing Yedlin and take him under your wing.

Isn't Scott starting with the U23 side?

Yes. But I'm sure if he shows well they didn't sign him to that contract to be a bench bum. Mike Ashley is cheap

Well the fans at Telstar seemed to like him, but he probably got frustrated playing at that level and called time on the loan.

He is still only 21. I think he signed a two year deal which may have been smart on his part as it allows him to have a little security while not getting bogged down in case it isn't working out. Plenty of time for him to breakthrough or break free.

I expect he will get PL minutes by Christmas if he is healthy, but I do not think playing for Steve Bruce will necessarily suit him.

Still, being a U-23 at Newcastle does afford the possibility of him joining up with our U-23 team for olympic qualifying.

I don't expect Scott to be a U-23 player for long at Newcastle. I see this more as a precaution as Scott hasn't played any meaningful minutes for close to 8 months. Starting with the reserves gives him a low pressure environment to get into game shape before being added to the Newcastle Sr. Roster.
Therefore don't count on him being released for the U-23 Olympic qualification tournament.

Well the article referenced above seemed to point towards him looking forward to it so he may have negotiated that into his agreement. Who knows.

I fully expect Newcastle to struggle this year and be part of the relegation fight...when was the last time Steve Bruce kept a side up in the EPL? So he may get minutes early but he will have to shine right away to keep being included.

So far choosing Newcastle would appear to have been a bad idea.

I do believe there was genuine interest from Rafa Benitez at first, but Steve Bruce is a totally different animal. His mission is to keep them up so he will sit back in his 5-4-1 shell and deploys hard working grinders...no room for an attacking midfielder.

Rumor has it Bruce wants to bring in two more midfielders, so his chances of playing first team PL minutes will likely decrease even more (I would say close to if not 0%).

I dare say he will be looking to leave on loan in January. Not sure if he would want to do this at this juncture of his career, but perhaps he should look into a loan until July to MLS? Gets him on the U-23 radar and should get him some playing time as well.

Coach is doing ok and Newcastle is moving up the table. He rates Yedlin and has started him every game since his return from injury. Yedlin scored a goal today to secure Victory for Newcastle.

What does Yedlin have to do with Scott?


Well, he is his coach and decides if he plays or not. It looks like the new coach also rates Yedlin which was not a given when he took the Job, Also Yedlin was injured and didn't play like the first 8 games of the season. He has played every game since coming back and when a coach's job is on the line they sick with whoever is getting the job done. So in answer to your question, everything. You needed me to explain this to you?
