Him and Mari were the mistakes of going to cheap backups and not try get backups that put good competition to the starting players. Never make these mistakes again

Simply can't defend but he's not picking himself in the team either. Another RB has to be on the shopping list.

No idea why he plays instead of Chambers. Offers nothing. Chambers is not very good either but is at least decent in the air and offers som physicality.

Can’t believe Kia somehow got him a 4 year deal.
Everyone thinks it was the Pepe deal that got Raul fired, but it was actually taking Luiz, Cedric and Mari on loan and assuring them of permanent deals without informing hierarchy that was actually Raul's undoing.

To some current and former staff, the set-up felt uncomfortably cosy. At one point in his reign, Arsène Wenger was so opposed to the influence of agents that he insisted any meetings with intermediaries be held in London Colney’s media building, away from football matters. Conversely, agents representing Arsenal first-team players have reported seeing Canales on the club’s premises. His proximity to Sanllehi even left some intermediaries feeling compelled to go through Canales when attempting to negotiate contract renewals. Joorabchian and others have been invited into the directors’ box. On the day Cedric Soares and Mari joined on loan, Sanllehi joined contract specialist Huss Fahmy and technical director Edu Gaspar at an informal dinner along with the players, Canales and Joorabchian.

Again, there may be something of a culture clash here. In Spain, that kind of fraternisation with intermediaries is more accepted. At Arsenal, however, some found it deeply uncomfortable.

When Willian joined the club, his official contract signing didn’t take place at Highbury House or the training ground, but at Joorabchian’s home. Sources insisted it was about trying to find a safe, private space with an outdoor area to respect social distancing measures and minimise any risk of spreading COVID-19. “The optics of that would have really bothered the Kroenkes”, one former staff member said.

Even though there is no suggestion of wrongdoing on any of these deals, the mounting speculation and public scrutiny they brought did not sit well with KSE

He's not very good either, but would much rather Chambers play instead of him.

Cedric isn't even one of those average players, that offers us a homegrown spot at least, like Holding...he just gives us nothing, ffs :lol:

"He's a different quality in the full-back area than what we have," Arteta said. "He's a gifted, technical player and is probably the best we have in the final third to make the right decision and attack the box as well."

I've **** on him as much as anyone, but only because I think he's a midtable player. The way A-M painted him as a liability was so over the top tho.
He gets way more hate on here than he deserves. He is not the greatest but a decent back-up. Played well today. Hopefully, we don't have to depend on him much as Tomi is the real deal. Would rather him than Chambers. At least he can get up and down the pitch. Chambers is just too cumbersome to be a decent RB.

Wondering if tomi walks straight back into the team.....no doubt a better player than Cedric but not sure if Arteta will immediately drop Cedric based on last 2 games; as arteta said he offers a bit more going forward at moment

Yeah, agreed. Sambi played a couple of games ahead of a fit Xhaka earlier in the season, I reckon the same might be true for Cedric here. He’ll play until he has a nightmare game.

He will Tomi is key part for our build up and defensive unit but we easing him we rushed him against Liverpool and he was poor and not fit I think he'll start against Wolves.
