Further proof that Matt Le Tissier is a cock

Le Tissier no Saint as betting scam exposed

Southampton legend Matthew Le Tissier has made the astonishing admission that he once attempted to influence a game in order to win large amounts of money on a spread betting scam.

Le Tissier, who now makes a living as a popular pundit, uncovered the incident in his new autobiography when detailing his involvement in an attempt to concede an early throw-in during a game against Wimbledon in 1995.

The forward, who won eight caps for England, stood to earn a significant amount of money if he cleared the ball into touch from the kick-off but underhit the ball, with team-mate Neil Shipperley scuppering his plot.

"Spread betting had just started to become popular. It was a new idea which allowed punters to back anything from the final score to the first throw-in,'' Le Tissier wrote in his autobiography Taking Le Tiss, serialised in the Daily Mail.

"There was a lot of money to be made by exploiting it. We were safe from the threat of relegation when we went to Wimbledon on April 17 and, as it was a televised match, there was a wide range of bets available.

"Obviously I'd never have done anything that might have affected the outcome of the match, but I couldn't see a problem with making a few quid on the time of the first throw-in.

"My team-mate had some friends with spread-betting accounts who laid some big bets for us. We stood to win well into four figures but if it went wrong we could have lost a lot of money.''

"It was set up nicely,'' Le Tissier added. "The ball was to be rolled back to me and I would smash it into touch. It seemed to be going like clockwork. We kicked off, the ball was tapped to me and I went to hit it out towards Neil Shipperley on the left wing.

"As it was live on television I didn't want to make it too obvious or end up looking like a prat for miscuing the ball so I tried to hit it just over his head. But with so much riding on it I was a bit nervous and didn't give it quite enough welly. The problem was that Shipperley knew nothing about the bet and managed to reach it and even head it back into play.

"I have never run so much in my life. If there had been Pro Zone analysis back then my stats would have been amazing for the next minute as I charged around the pitch desperately trying to kick the ball out of play.

"Suddenly it was no longer a question of winning money. We stood to lose a lot of cash if it went much longer than 75 seconds before the ball went out. I had visions of guys coming to kneecap me. Eventually we got the ball out on 70 seconds.
The neutral time meant we had neither won nor lost. I have never tried spread betting since.''

Le Tissier scored 162 goals in 378 league starts for Southampton and fronted a failed bid to buy the club over the summer.

what an unblieveable prick he is, just a shame that the fa cant do a thing about him

The fuck is the problem? Kew that stuff was going on ages ago, aint exactly a new thing.

No whtat is really disfracefull is the antics Ruddock and his pals got up to while at Liverpool. The pass the coin one for example during games while were chasing the league. Those are the people who should be shot.

It's also the reason why we're still on 18 league titles. If the likes of Ruddock and his pals had any sort of professionalism, we'd have walked the league every season under Evans.

Agree, it's just a throw-in bet.  And the only person losing out should be the bookies because only a total tool would bet big on throw-ins anyway.

He was a magnificent player, though. When Le Tissier was "on", nobody could touch him. He wasn't much of an athlete and he wasn't very consistent but if you talk about sheer ability, the things he could do with a ball put the likes of Cantona to shame. Have a look at these goals and tell me who in the modern game can do this.

If it was him betting on Southampton conceding the first goal, then it'd be out of order, but I can't see much wrong with a throw in.

I don't further proof that he's a twat, though.

You can't be serious?

He spent the first couple of minutes of the game trying to kick the ball out of touch....and if he hadn't, he admits he would of spent the remainder of the game worrying about getting kneecapped.

Whether he was trying to affect the scoring outcome of the match is 100% entirely irrelevant!!

It's a disgrace, and I would say the same if one of our own players past or present did the same.

eaxctly - instead of focusing on trying to do what he is paid to do (score/create goals) he was focussed on giving up a throw in. and it is fixing a game, imagine if you had money on that spread bet and found out that le tissier had fixed it and you'd lost a fair bit, wouldnt be so funny would it?

although this does remind me of dream team a little bit from one of the episodes in one of the later series

Our captain doesnt have a bad highlight reel.......

That second goal....against Newcastle is it? where the ball is two yards behind him and his first touch is a back heel over his head.......I can't even put into words how good that was

I have an uncle who had the pleasure of marking Le Tissier in a friendly in Belfast.....said it was the easiest 75 mins he's ever played.....and 'Le Tiss' scored two. From about 6 touches in total

I personally don't like the man, but he was a talented fella

Henry?

Yeah, better player and a similar amount of stupidly good goals.

zlatan?

There was a touch of the Zlatans about Le Tiss.

I was thinking maybe Bergkamp, he had the same kind of "If I choose to score, there's fuck all you can do about it, you wouldn't guess in a million how I'm going to do it" kind of vibe.

Although Gerrard is a good shout, too and he does shit Le Tiss wouldn't dream of doing. Like tackling.

I must admit I found the article funny, because it's exactly the sort of behavior which I'd expect from a knob jockey like Le Tissier. The only let down was the fact that he didn't fail in his endevour, because the thought of him getting knee capped gives me great pleasure.

On the other hand, if it was an ex-liverpool player making such an admission then I'd be pretty pissed with said player. Just like I was when I read about the "pass the coin" game of Ruddock and Co. I think thats why people are being so, as you put it, sanctamonious. They're merely judging the revelations in the same way in which they'd judge it if it had been an ex- red.

Anyway, good on you Matt you medaless c*nt, Im sure the Southampton fans will love you even more

On a wider point ... how the fuck did he manage to spend his entire career at Southampton?

Seriously, in his prime, he could have played for anyone ... Us, Madrid, United, Milan.

And only 8 England caps?

The general consensus must be right ... he WAS a lazy sod!

The story at the time was that he was a local lad and had no interest in moving somewhere else just for money. Mind you, the betting story makes a bit more sense. He mightn't have been dipping into a little fix if he had been on Milan wages.

The eight caps, I can't explain. You'd wonder how many caps he would have got if he had challenged himself.

he nearly went to chelsea around 96/97 - i think chelsea agreed a fee but they pulled out IIRC

as for why he stayed at southampton for all his career - lack of ambition? wanting to be a big fish in a small pond?
