Could Cedric Make A Comeback For Saints ?
Thursday, 21st May 2020 08:29
With our players out on loan about to return to the club, could some of them make a comeback when it was assumed they had played their last game for the club. Cedric Soares might be one such player.
Whilst some of the loanee's who are still in contract such as Mo Elyounoussi might well feel that it is in their best interests to play, others like Wesley Hoedt and Mario Lemina will not be interested, Guido Carrillo might also fancy it but would he get to Staplewood as perhaps no one would recognise him.
But one player who Saints could perhaps utilise is Cedric Soares, the Portugese International is out of contract in the summer, but will still have some of that left if Football restarts on the intended date.
Certainly he would be an asset assuming he is now fit, Ralph Hasenhuttl seems to be unsure about Kyle Walker Peter's and still not convinced Yan Valery has the right attitude, Cedric as a stand in even if it is only for a few weeks could be a welcome addition.
Cedric's contract will expire though on July 1st, after that he would not be eligible to play unless the Premier League allowed some sort of contract extension.
But Cedric himself might feel that playing for Saints represents a big risk of injury, if he did play and that happened, then he might struggle to get a deal elsewhere for next season and find himself out of work for a period and therefore without earnings.
I would not blame Cedric for that, however he might feel that playing could put him in the spotlight to help him find a new club assuming that Arsenal don't follow up their loan spell.

Away days by Andyconky
Many pounds have been spent and many train tracks have been travelled but who doesn't love an away day. Doesn't matter if its Chester or Chelsea or Lincoln or Liverpool, it's all good fun with a sense of adventure of what may happen.

Matchday #3, and Robbie’s not happy. I know opinion is divided, but I have considerable sympathy with the Chairman on this one. I don’t want this to be necessarily a political comment, but many are looking on with bemusement as the government seem to lurch from one knee-jerk reaction to another during this crisis, and I would be saying this of any government, regardless of their political persuasion. The nub of Robbie’s comments is quite simple, what’s the point in having a panel of experts working closely with responsible club owners to plan supporter’s safe return to essentially open air stadia, investing in alterations, changes to layout, developing detailed procedures etc. to then have the rug pulled out from under their feet? I know why, a second wave seems to be coming, and frankly it looks like people simply can’t be trusted to follow the rules – but why then are pubs still open, or does the virus only come out after 10pm?

After last weeks’ solid point away against Bradford City, tipped by many to be strong promotion contenders, we now face another stern test against fallen giants Bolton Wanderers. Okay, giants may be stretching it a tad, but these guys have won the FA Cup four times, the League Cup twice, and the Charity Shield and Football League (Sherpa Van) Trophy once apiece. Christ, they were in the Premier League just eight years ago. But, they are where they are for a reason, and Saturday is all about 11 v 11, literally on a level playing field…
