It's becoming a very familiar story indeed for Sunderland fans. They aren't bottom of the Premier League any more - thanks to fierce rivals Newcastle United - but eight league games have yielded not one win.
And, whenever the Black Cats have delivered encouraging performances, the best they have ended up with is a draw.
It was the same on Saturday afternoon as Sunderland drew 2-2 with West Ham United. And yet Dick Advocaat's side were 2-0 up...
Indeed, the 22-year-old was given very limited game time indeed after joining Spurs, with Kyle Walker much preferred at right back despite going through spells of terrible form. Walker's place in the starting XI at White Hart Lane still looks secure, with Kieran Trippier so far failing to impress.
But Yedlin could well impress the Tottenham coach and fans when he returns from his loan spell at Sunderland. He is certainly encouraging Black Cats fans after his first start for the club at right-back. Here's how they responded to his performance during the 2-2 draw with West Ham...
Thought Yedlin coped well though. M'Vila and Catts decent. Coates wasn't a disaster. Toivonen had a good first half #safc— Rory Fallow (@RoryFallow) October 3, 2015
Got to be honest and say I was impressed with Yedlin and Jones. Jones man of the match for me #SAFC— Scott (@76skelly) October 3, 2015
M'vila, Lens, Borini and Fletcher running the show today.... Yedlin looks unreal and toivonen putting a shift in #SAFC I love it!!!!— Jack Grieves MP (@JackGrieves_) October 3, 2015
