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.

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!
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Swans 3/4/01 by wessex_exile
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...
