I'm sure I read somewhere that he's from the Channel Islands and so Southampton was ideal for him or something like that.

Personally I believe he couldn't cut the mustard anywhere else - not exactly a worker like Rushie was he?

Why not? Don't you mind footballers focusing on getting the ball out of play and losing possession just so that they can earn more money?

Its a bit ridiculous to be honest and a terrible attitude. Any player that did this would lose all respect in the game.

It was ages ago, and there wasn't anywhere near as much money in football then as there is now. I just see this as a way to get digs in on him. Fair enough to him for admitting to it. Still don't like him though.

He was still earning around 3-4k a week. Ok thats not even close to what he would be earning these days, but its still a brilliant wage.

Just greed to be honest and a disregard of the game. What if, from losing possession, the ball was hit up the field and they conceded a goal. You would like to think that when footballers go into a match they are doing so to represent the club that pays them, rather than just settling some of their personal bets.

He mentioned four figure sums being involved in the betting so that was big money for his day.

Giving the ball away to the opposition to win a bet, pathetic IMO. No matter how miniscule it seems, its not the right attitude and not what fans pay for.

I wonder how we'd react if our talisman was giving away throw ins to win money. Rawk meltdown.
If he retires I'll eat my fucking cock.

Well he's a huge cock of a man anyway so this is hardly surprising, just about sums him up, the fuckwit couldn't even put the ball out properly.

Scored some cracking goals of course but i've often wondered just how good he really was, sure the talent was there but i'm not sure the application and desire was, this goes a long way to proving that.

People don't work there asses off all week so they can afford to go to a game to watch an overpaid prima donna kick a ball into touch to win a bet, fucking knob.

The fact he couldn't see anything wrong with it says a lot about him IMO.
He's a manipulative bastard. Another deliberate attempt to put pressure on people in the game, which he thinks he'll get away with because of his "standing" in the game and his fucking knighthood.

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.

Err, he did fail.

I dont really like Le Tiss based on seeing him on Sky Sports, he irritates me but I dont hate him or anything the way I do Paul Merson! Le Tiss was a good player though, scored some fucking amazing goals, especially the one against Newcastle when he backheeled it over his head for his first touch, the freekick when he flicked the ball up as it came to him and volleyed it was special as well. He was amazing on his day. Good record at taking pens as well, how many did he miss in his whole career? Was only 1 wasnt it? Not sure. Good player, bit of a dick though.

As for what he said about the throw in things, its wrong, very wrong but what can you do about it? Im sure it still goes on today.

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.

He'll probably get some stick on Soccer Saturday for 5 mins and that'll be about it. Paul Merson won't say anything though. In fact  i'd bet his house on it if he actually still owned one.

Always wondered why Le Tissier never moved on from Southampton. There must of been interest in him. Were'nt we linked to him in the mid 90's? Then again maybe he just enjoyed being a big fish in a small pond.

What a bellend. Seems harmless enough on the surface, but what if the oppo had scored from the throw in? Imagine the uproar if that happened to us.

It makes him an even bigger bellend that he couldn't manage to kick the ball out of play too.

Carlton Palmer got more England caps than Le Tissier.

I just looked up his wiki entry and got this:

Quote
In the run up to 1998 FIFA World Cup, he scored a hat-trick in a game for England B; despite this, he was controversially overlooked by manager Glenn Hoddle for the final squad.

This makes sense. Glenda was well known for always wanting to be the best player in training, even as a manager. Le Tiss would have screwed that.

This was common place when spread betting first came in.

An ex-Newcastle centre forward made a similar arrnagement at Southampton and one of my mates got in on it. They kicked off and twatted the ball into the stand.

In the story Le Tissier tells, he doesn't mention the Wimbledon captain but I hope it was the squeaky clean Robbie Earle.

Funny? Sorry, but focusing on who has a 1 pound coin in their hands while we're defending corners in the last minute against the likes of Coventry in 1997 instead of the actual fucken conrner isnt funny at all. It's fucken disgraceful and an insult to every Reds fan or ex player.

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.

I don't find Ruddocks gme funny either. Glad/hope those days are long gone.

Was speaking with a mate about this yesterday, he found it quite funny and not a bad way of making some money. After all they are not on millions back then, well thats was his view on things, personally I think it's all relative, back then they were still on a damn site more than any of us.

I told him about the Ruddock situation, one which had heard before, he then changed his attitude about Le Tissier. I guess it's ok and kind of funny.. until it involves your own club.

Personally I think he is a twat for how he is these days, but a fantastic player in his day who I enjoyed watching.

Was it a West Ham game? I think I can remember Fat Frank not bring able to take a kick off for West Ham properly for a few weeks without launching it straight into touch? (possibly explains why the West Ham fans don't like him much too?)

Le Tissier had great natural talent, no doubt about it, but never possessed the hunger or drive to make the most of that talent. He was also too wooden to ever be truly mobile, hence why he worked so hard on his volleying. I think Saints suited him perfectly because had he gone elsewhere the team would not have been built around him and he'd have had to work as well as look fancy. It's also much easier to stand out in a team full of technically inferior players.
