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.

I find it pretty childish when people say "your not even allowed to say". Of course you are "allowed" , but you probably want to weigh up the consequences of your words. From what Matt has said it seems like he is equally happy not to be working for Sky as they are not politically aligned with him. He said that he left Saints because it was causing them issues.

We live in a very permissive society, but to be frank, some individuals court controversy. Look at Tommy Robinson. He was allowed to share some attitudes that the majority of people would consider pretty unhealthy. He was only arrested when he broke the law by interfering with a trial .

Matt can say what he likes and it seems like he is doing just that.

I believe in freedom of speech. I respect and support Matt for not being scared to tout his point of view with the platform that he has. I certainly go along with some of the stuff he says, some of it maybe not so much.

Regardless the press is generally so one eyed that healthy debate is not really supported anymore and this tends to drive those with points of views that get cancelled underground and that is also not healthy.

I also challenge people on this site to watch Russell Brand's podcasts, highly entertaining and lots of topics covered and obviously very British. Others I enjoy are Bill Maher, Ben Shapiro, Joe Rogan, Crowder. Quillette is also a really good side where people put their points of view forward and have proper debate.
