I don't have Long in my top 6. Gregg does though.

If someone plays well they will take the spot. Miazga was poor especially against Panama. I've wanted to see different guys and we have seen a bunch. None are convincing. It's a problem.

If I had to pick Gregg's brain, I would think this is how he currently rates the RCB.

1. Zimmerman
2. Long
3. Alvardo
4. Richardsga
5. Miagza
6. CCV
7. EPB

Definitely there is no clear cut answer at the RCB.

Also, Yedlin didn't make the roster for the match today. I am thinking Araujo might take his spot.

CCV is injured. Christ, I said that in the November friendly thread as to why he wasn't called in, and so many people wanted to complain about his exclusion and argue for calling in an injured guy...

Yedlin is in club limbo. He had some injuries and was jumped for the starting RB spot towards the end of last season. He was supposed to leave Newcastle in the summer, and the club (anticipating it) got a backup RB to take his spot... but they got cute in their negotiations with Besiktas and rejected their initial offer holding out for more money.

Besiktas said, "ok, we'll just find someone else" and thats what they did. Then Newcastle tried to go back to Besiktas and negotiate the offer, but the club had already sorted out their RB needs.

So with Newcastle having their first and second choice RB situated with the expectation of Yedlin leaving, then botching his transfer, he is stuck in limbo at the moment...

Wouldn't be surprised if he ends up back in MLS after the January window, but I think he might try to just move to a lower level European league.

So if Yedlin moves and gets into a situation where he is playing significant minutes in a relevant league, where does that put him in relation to Cannon on the depth chart?

Newcastle is a toxic situation right now with a lot of uncertainty over the ownership situation. If there is a takeover that will surely mean investment into the club which means player turnover and almost assuredly a new manager. Yedlin leaving is certainly in his best interest.

I dare say Kyle Scott will be sold for a song in January with his deal running out as well. When he agreed to go to Newcastle his route to the first team seemed relatively easy. Benitez was the manager and knew him from his Chelsea days and endorsed the signing. But between Scott agreeing to go and Scott officially signing Benitez left and they replaced him with the huff and puff Steve Bruce. So Scott has languished in the reserves without getting a sniff. I believe his contract runs out in the summer and he will surely leave on a free so I dare say skint Newcastle will try to sell him. Could be a cheap option for a MLS team looking for a creative player, but having had his head turned by the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid in his younger days, I don't think he would accept a move to MLS unless it was his only option.
