Kyle Walker - Peters To Extend Loan
Thursday, 28th May 2020 08:57
According to the latest media reports Kyle Walker- Peters is ready to extend his loan at St Mary's until the season is completed.
There has been much talk of whether those out on loan would return to their parent clubs or stay with their loan teams for the final games of the 2019/20 season.
From a Saints perspective Cedric could return and play, as could the like of Fraser Forster and Mo Elyounoussi with the Scottish Premier League season now declared over, as long as they could be fitted into the Premier League squad that allows for 25 named players plus any qualifying home grown youngsters.
But one man who looks like he will be extending his loan spell is right back Kyle Walker- Peters, who now looks to have burned a few bridges at White Hart Lane after recent comments in the media.
Certainly Spurs fans don't seem to have been overly impressed by the player when he has turned out for Spurs and at 23 he has barely played first team football, in the Premier League for the North London Club he has only managed 9 starts plus 3 as sub, you would have expected him to have made a few cup appearances, but they only add another 9+ 3 sub appearances and that is perhaps the most damning figure given the number of cup games Spurs will have played since KWP's debut in August 2017.
Saints fans wondered why he got so little game time when he initially arrived at the club, starting only one game plus another couple as an unused sub, but it is now being reported that he arrived with a hamstring injury and wasn't fully fit.
The Daily Echo is reporting that Saints have agreed with Spurs that Walker-Peters can now stay till the end of the season and that the full back is keen to do so knowing that his options are limited and needing to try and play his way to a move somewhere.
Fro this perspective Saints have not got anything to lose, so this looks a likely scenario, although whether it will lead to a permanent move is another matter.

Matches of Yesteryear - Cardiff v U's 11/4/98 by wessex_exile
Here we are then, after a reasonably solid but distinctly dull semi-final first leg lit up by a moment of sheer brilliance by Bramall, just one match away from a socially distanced Wembley play-off final. We may have a slight advantage, but there is of course still much to do, and I can’t imagine for a moment that Exeter will be that shot-shy again at t’other St James’ Park. It’s all about the result though, performance is irrelevant, so I’ll take an even duller 0-0 every day of the week and twice on Sundays. I hope you’re all keeping safe and well, and for those of you blessed with progeny – Happy Father’s Day!
Matches of Yesteryear - Reading v U's 11/11/2000 by wessex_exile
So, after months of uncertainty, here we finally are at the start of a well-deserved play-off campaign. I say well-deserved, though in truth the play-offs ought to have been our minimum aspiration back in August. But sometimes life throws you a curve ball – no one could have predicted back then what the world was going to become, that hundreds of thousands would perish, and that most clubs today are probably fighting for their very existence. In fact, as already mentioned by MFB and Durham, no one could have predicted that were it not for a stirring 3-0 victory at Carlisle in our last match back in March, we wouldn’t have even been in the play-offs. During lockdown, I have been reassured by the honest and stateman-like announcements from our Chairman keeping us all updated, and never more grateful that we have him looking after the club.

And so here we are, at what would have been the last match of the domestic season, at home to FGR, and almost certainly still in with a shout of making the play-offs – maybe even already guaranteed by now. As I look out this morning, it’s a beautiful sunny day, and I would almost certainly already be on the first leg of a train journey to be amongst the faithful at the Jobserve Community Stadium. Given the location of our opponents, I’d probably be sharing the journey with a few hundred FGR supporters too, but they’ve always been a friendly bunch whenever I’ve met them, so I wouldn’t have been too concerned about that. Instead, we sit and wait to see how and when the season may (or may not) finish – strange times indeed…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Accrington Stanley 13/1/04 by wessex_exile
Happy Saturday everyone…well, less of the happy actually, with rain falling freely since yesterday afternoon. Still, good weather to be in lockdown for, takes away that feeling that you might be missing out on some quality time outside. In an open letter yesterday to all supporters of EFL clubs, chairman Rick Parry stated “…with or without spectators, delivering a successful conclusion to the 2019/20 season remains our goal to ensure the integrity of our competitions”. If that can be achieved, it appears almost certain these will be matches behind closed doors, streamed live to all supporters – which inevitably will break the long-held Saturday 3pm blackout for televised matches. We all know why that blackout was in place, but this is a difficult time, and it requires an innovative solution.
Matches of Yesteryear - Swansea v U's 7/3/06 by wessex_exile
Good afternoon everyone, I sincerely hope you’re all doing well, and hopefully not going too cabin-feverish! Today would have been a home match against Oldham Athletic, and after our surely guaranteed epic 3-2 victory at Sixfields on Good Friday, it would be just one more victory needed to guarantee a play-off place…think I might have been out in the sun a bit too much over the last few days 😊
