Matthew Le Tissier Speaks Out About His Beliefs
Wednesday, 22nd Jun 2022 08:52
Southampton FC Legend Matt Le Tissier has courted controversy over the past couple of years with his views on the Covid pandemic and also the War in Ukraine, he has now spoken about what he has said and his reasoning behind them.
I should say from the start that this is not a story that seeks to condone or condemn what Matt Le Tissier has said or done, it is an attempt to give him a fair hearing and put his case forward.
I have not conducted any interviews with him myself on any of the subjects, I am just pointing Saints supporters or indeed anyone with an interest in what he has said in the direction of an interview he has done with a blogger called Rob Moore who goes under the name of The Disruptive Entrepreneur and his you tube channel Diisruptors.
Again I am not putting this forward in defence of Le Tissier, but in order to let people see what he is really saying rather than the headlines and then make up their own minds.
In the first of these blogs. Le Tissier talks about his sacking from Sky Sports claiming it was because of the views he expressed about Black Lives Matter, see what he has to say below via the link.
In the second of the clips he talks about his "sacking" from his role as an ambassador for Southampton FC.
But he doesn't stop there and also talks about his views on the pandemic and lockdown.
These are just three controversial parts of what was an interview that lasts almost 90 minutes and the full version sees the man they called Le God also talk about less controversial moments both before and after his Southampton career .
The full interview can be viewed using the link below.
After watching these videos you still might not agree with what he has said or indeed is continuing to say, but at least you can give an opinion on what he is saying and how he has formed his opinions.
As I say I do not put these clips up in defence of Matthew Le Tissier, I do not necessarily agree or disagree with his views, all I seek to do is to try and give him a fair hearing.

When Monday Comes #37 by wessex_exile
When Saturday Comes and we reach the end of a topsy-turvy season, much of which hasn’t been that much fun if I’m honest, though latterly considerably improved under Wayne Brown. If I can, I always like to do the first and last game of the season, but sadly a trip to Hartlepool just wasn’t on the cards, not if I actually wanted to get home again tonight, so I had to console myself with a pretty enjoyable trip to the JobServe last weekend – not quite the victory the U’s deserved over Walsall, but a great day out anyway. I know it’ll be too late for the Player of the Year awards, but wouldn’t it be nice to see a Freddie Sears hat-trick this afternoon to round off the season.

When Saturday Comes tomorrow, and I will be on a train heading over to God’s own county for my last U’s game of the season. That should have been last Friday’s trip to the Principality, but as posted elsewhere I was more than happy to be pre-booked to dog-sit Emma’s collie Reggie that night and had to be content with one of Nadine’s ‘downstreams’ on iFollow. Given both the performance and the result, whilst I was sorry to miss it in person, I was more than happy with how Friday night turned out in the end. Tomorrow will be a gathering of the clans for us, with at the last count at least 8, possibly more, of the family gathering for the match. Ironically, I’ll see them all again on Bank Holiday Monday for a family birthday, but I’ll be driving over for that one.

When Saturday Comes and the U’s have already given us a fantastic start to the weekend, with a stirring and well-deserved 2-1 victory at promotion-chasing Newport County. Yes, the Exiles had lost the previous three at home and are looking like they are going to bottle their chance for the play-offs, and yes with the U’s now safe technically we had little to play for, but don’t take anything away from this performance. If Wayne Brown is still being ‘interviewed’ for the full-time role as Colchester United manager, then last night was the equivalent of having an excellent incisive question of your own lined up for the interview panel.

When Saturday Comes and our Easter Bank Holiday programme is already underway, following a dismal 2-0 defeat at St James’ Park yesterday. It’s not so much the result that galls, in truth deep down I suspect we all thought it was going to be a difficult trip to get anything out of, it was the manner of that defeat. To say the U’s were lacklustre is a massive understatement – and it wasn’t as if it was down to Exeter City simply outplaying us, I didn’t think they were all that to be honest. I can cope with defeat, heaven knows the U’s have given me enough practice in recent years, but to go down without a whimper, relying on Man of the Match Sham to keep it from becoming a cricket score against an average Exeter City, was just dreadful.

When Saturday Comes and there was a time, not too long ago, when today’s game against the charmless Steve Evans and Stevenage was looking like it might be a relegation 6-pointer. Whilst we’re not out of the woods quite yet, back-to-back victories over Tranmere Rovers and Harrogate mean we go into this game knowing even if we were to slip up against Stevenage, we’ll still be 8pts plus goal difference ahead of them, and only five games left to play. Still, let’s not dwell on negatives, because three wins on the bounce will be the confidence-booster we’ll need ahead of the tough trip on Good Friday to St James’ Park.
