    I thought he could have won many trophies and perhaps become one of the true greats of the game had he moved to say MU.

    I guess though that if you are happy where you are, wife and kids settled, revered by the fans and earning a decent wage then one has to respect a decision like his to say put.
    Also, much like Jack Grealish's position now, there is always an element of risk going elsewhere to "better one's self"

    Without knowing the true facts behind his reasoning on the BLM matter and Sky's subsequent decision to cancel him, I do admire him for taking a stance on what he believed was right.

    The double standards of Sky with regard to keeping on the whiney one are spot on.

    Spoke the truth. Doesn't fit with Sky for whatever reason. People are forced to go along with a view or lose their job. Remember that every time you watch the news media.

    Matt Le Tissier and co have made a good living out of punditry for way too long in my opinion, all of that without really telling us much, so he doesn't have much to grumble about in terms of being replaced.

    As for his suspicions over the BLM movement, that's fair enough in my opinion, he doesn't have to agree with what they aim to achieve and he should be able to say as much.

    I don't know if he's a bit pissed off over losing his job at Sky, or the whole situation that led up to it etc, but let's be honest, he was working for a top end shit house outfit who care zero over shafting people in order to expand their empire, **** with low paid workers pay and conditions etc, I can't recall him speaking out then or offering his resignation.

    Personally, I don't think that he should have lost his job for having an opinion, if that was actually the case, although I don't really give a shit in the scheme of things. He's done alright previously. There were plenty of things that were wrong and that he could have opened his mouth about in the days when he was earning very good money, but he didn't.

    Good for him, and clarifies what many suspect. It's utterly absurd how all of that was put on us, especially if you think (as i do) like Kemi Badenoch that a lot of this will make things worse.

    Got a conspiracy theory? Tell Matt le Tisseier - he'll spread it for you.
    Great player, but now he's up there with David Icke.

    You clearly didn't listen to what he said in that interview. He didn't want to wear a political slogan and criticised lockdowns. Seems reasonable. Or do you support global media organisations over a small degree of freedom of expression?

    He's active on two forms of social media, one of them is a paid platform where he gives his opinion on stuff, and he's knocking out podcasts and interviews like a demon. Cancelled he ain't.

    Matt le Tissier directly compared the lockdown to the holocaust. He thinks people who died from COVID were actors. Says PCR tests were the "biggest fraud every perpetuated on mankind". He doesn't think the media are telling the truth about Ukraine. He doesn't believe in climate change. He thinks the Tanzania president was assasinated because he was an anti vaxxer. The guy is a complete nut job.

    Agreed if you talk rubbish you shouldn't work on a chat show, he's earned enough already and wasn't even that good anyway.

    Indeed. I have nothing against freedom of speech, but spreading complete and utter bollocks is another.

    I would be interested to see his rebuttal to some of that, although I do remember him writing some nonsense about Anne Frank, which really..I mean, if ever there is a topic to leave alone it's that!

    From the video, it's mainly the BLM stuff that did for him, and I think that is totally wrong, as it is a political organisation backed by a specific theory on race relations and not signing up to it is perfectly legitimate and it should never have been foisted on people on TV in the first place (nor should wearing a poppy be mandatory btw, before someone brings that up!)

    he was also asked to step down from his role as an ambassador for Southampton - a club where he's a genuine legend, after publicly denying Russian war crimes in Ukraine.

    absolutely loved him as a player, all the more because he wasn't at a big club. even without all the conspiracy shite he was a pretty boring pundit.
