Why Would Saints Sign Kyle Walker - Peters From Spurs ?
Wednesday, 7th Aug 2019 08:51
Kyle Walker Peters is being linked heavily with Saints, but why would Saints be interested in the Spurs right back ?
Although it is possible that Cedric could leave St Mary's in the final day of the transfer window, the suggestion that Kyle Walker - Peters might be coming in on loan seems to be a strange rumour.
Mauricio Pochettino is known to be an admirer or Walker - Peters and indeed it was only 8 months ago that the player signed a new five year deal at Spurs, however his progress at the club has been slow and at 22 years old he has only made 9 Premier League appearances and a grand total of 19 in all competitions.
There is of course strong competition for the right back spot at White Hart Lane and it is understandable why Spurs would want him to go out on loan for a season to get some experience and certainly he is good enough for that to be at a Premier League club, but why would Spurs want him to go to Saints ?
We of course have Yan Valery in that spot another highly rated youngster and one who has performed well in pre season, would Walker - Peters, step immediately into his spot if he arrived ?
The answer is no and that being the case why would Pochettino want to loan his player to a club where he will be a back up, he might as well keep him at Spurs if that is the case.
So it seems that the reason he is being linked is lazy journalism, in the quest for a good rumour or perhaps at the request of the players agent, a hack has put together a promising youngster with the club who have the best reputation for developing youngsters and giving them a chance.
But they have taken no account of the situation at St Mary's in his position, yes if Saints do move Cedric on in the next 24 hours or so we will have a gap to fill as back up to Valery, yes it would be great for it to be a player of Walker - Peters quality, but overall the deal doesn't fit Spurs needs or Saints for that matter.

Matches of Yesteryear - Millwall v U's 14/4/99 by wessex_exile
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 😊
Matches of Yesteryear - Yeovil v U's 30/9/17 by wessex_exile
Good afternoon everyone, and first and foremost I must take the opportunity to wish you all a happy, healthy and most of all chocolicious Bank Holiday Easter weekend. This morning I should have been waking up in Langenhoe with all the kids, probably slightly muzzy-headed after my cousin’s wedding yesterday, and preparing for the journey home via Sixfields to watch the U’s bolster their promotion hopes. Needless to say, first the EFL, and then the wedding had to be postponed, so here I am still in North Wilts, though what a beautiful day it is!

Good afternoon everyone, North Wilts calling. We’ve all no doubt heard (and used) variations of the expression “strange times we’re going through” during this crisis. They certainly are, and without a doubt the term crisis is apt, with deaths and positive tests seemingly rising almost exponentially at the moment. But we’ll get through this, and when we do, I firmly believe as a society we’ll be better for it. We’ll be a society better connected to our family, friends and neighbours, and more caring for those that need support. More so, we'll be a society in tune with the concept that we don’t have to burn fossil fuels to conduct business, we do have the technology available to avoid it, we’ll all be pretty adept at using it, and will all be far more comfortable with using it. It's an ill wind...
