has sunil gulati in his sights

If you measure by club resume, sure. But when was the last time Yedlin put in an impressive performance for the US?Yedlin had the announcers shouting about how well he created some chances in his last game vs Norwich. Load up the MOTD highlights here and run to 1:50, they praise him twice in a 30-second span. Newcastle is 12th in the EPL, but they're in the EPL, and Yedlin's pretty clearly their first-choice RB whenever he's healthy. And he's 26 years old, with 62 caps.
I think you're right to be excited about Dest's potential, but putting him ahead of Yedlin right now, nevermind putting FC Dallas' RB ahead of him in the depth chart, is a little ludicrous.
