Le Tiss: Proud moment for Saints

Basingstoke Gazette: Matt Le Tissier Matt Le Tissier

Matt Le Tissier believes the selection of three Saints players for the England World Cup squad represented a “very proud day for everyone associated with the club”.

Former England international Le Tissier, who was controversially left out of the 1998 tournament, was thrilled to see Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Rickie Lambert all chosen for Brazil.

“It’s absolutely brilliant for the football club,” he said. “It’s a very proud day for everyone associated with the club, not just the three boys.

“The fact the team has had such a terrific season has helped the lads individually to get in.

“Also, we should still spare a thought for Jay (Rodriguez), who very well could have been included too.”

Le Tissier was always confident Lallana and Lambert would make the 23-man squad, but admitted he had been unsure whether Roy Hodgson would select 18-year-old left-back Shaw.

“The only doubt I really had was if Ashley Cole was brought back in, because of his experience and the few games he had towards the end of the season,” he said.

“But Roy obviously decided that Luke’s form and the amount of games he’s played has warranted his inclusion, and he is looking to the future too, which is a good thing.

“It’s an incredible achievement. The boy must be shaking his head in disbelief at how unbelievably well the early part of his career has gone.”

On Lallana, Le Tissier said: “I don’t think there was any doubt about it. The only question for me is whether he will be in the starting XI against Italy.

“This season he’s been at the peak of his form for the majority of the campaign. He’s been consistently outstanding and he thoroughly deserves his place in the squad.”

With Manchester United and Liverpool pursuing Shaw and Lallana respectively, Le Tissier hopes Saints can ward off the interest in their most valuable assets.

“We’ll keep our fingers crossed,” he said. “The vultures appear to be circling. We’ll wait and see what happens, but as Saints supporters we hope and pray they’re still turning out for us next season.”

Le Tissier has been an ardent supporter of Lambert since his arrival at the club, and he is delighted that the man who now wears his old number seven shirt has completed his fairytale rise through the ranks.

“It’s incredible what he’s done for the club in the five seasons he’s been here – the goals he’s scored and the quality he’s brought,” he said.

“He’s a player who will probably be coming off the bench, but he’s someone who can have an impact. If Roy’s looking to change things round then he’ll be one of the first people he turns to.”

Couldn't agree more with Le Tiss. Pity his unique talents were not given more outings on the world stage. What a waste!

A proud day indeed. Only hope it's not soured by Adam and Luke's departure, or we'll only have one player there technically.

Yes except that sadly we could suddenly be facing the most heartbreaking summer in the club s history.This morning,it has suddenly dawned upon me want the real reason for Krueger s appointment to the post of chairman really is.And why Saints promoted from within to replace Cortese. Liebherr may be meaning to asset strip rather than inject new funds into the club to take it to the next level. It would be the ultimate betrayal but it is a scenario that adds up. Krueger is not a football man, has no connections with Southampton, he is a foreigner, here today gone tomorrow.. He made his reputation as a motivational speaker. What does he expect, that he can sell all our stars and leave us with nothing, and then rebuild the team using his no doubt impressive motivational skills from cheap replacements and the academy? Why also when touted as successor to Cortese did the one CEO who had expressed interest in the post not join the club was it because he was told that Liebherr wanted to sell our best players to get what I suppose we have to accept is her money back?? Why suddenly has there been such interest in all of our best players, has someone at the club let other premiership clubs that our stars are for sale? no other club is suffering the amount of speculation that Saints are, it looks as if we are in the middle of a fire sale, did someone connected with the club alert other premiership clubs that we were willing to listen to offers for our stars?. Please, please let me be wrong. But something about these people tells me not to trust them. Cortese left for a reason, he was determined to execute his friend Markus plan. But Markus daughter it seems was not so keen and they disagreed as to the club s future. How indeed could he have stayed it must have been a wrench for him to leave without even a word for the fans perhaps he knew what was about to happen.
Reeds appointment to overseeing transfers merely underlines the point I am making sadly. The man does not speak any foreign languages so dont expect signings from the continent. instead what we will get is players from the English scene, possibly from the lower divisions in order to save money.There have been reports that Saints are looking to the domestic market for replacements in which case Reed s appointment makes total sense. I am really afraid that I have read the situation correctly, there have after all been mutterings from Krueger that the club has to live within its means. In other words we are going to be signing top players any longer. I just hope I am completely wrong, but if I am why has there been no statement from the club refusing these bids and making clear the clubs commitment to the Liebherr vision of the future.

Interesting train of thought. I too pray this scenario or anything similar is not hatching in the board room.
I do lean toward everything Katarina is doing is leading to something positive however. So far it's been onwards and upwards across the board. Even if she is only looking to make dinero and has no emotional attachment to what her father has started (and I just can't see that in anything she is doing including turning up for home games) She is canny enough to look at our conveyor belt youth system to know not to grab 10m today and risk breaking the chain when there could be at least 10m a year like clockwork coming in if she and her team just do it shrewdly and continue the good work.
I suspect our Katarina is beginning to get bitten by the football bug, Saints in particular.
Only time will tell of course.

Just got a (authentic) extremely large signed photo of LeGod just bringing the ball down seconds before scoring the last goal at the Dell. A bonus is that stood right next to him, front on to the camera is my other hero of that period the Magical Marian.
LeTiss is without a doubt the most naturally gifted player I am ever likely to see grace any stadium anywhere in the world. A succession of England managers denied and/or wasted his talent. This man should have had 100 plus caps and would have repaid his country with dozens of match winning goals. These managers should all hang their heads with shame.
LeTiss had everything except the desire to run around like a headless chicken like most of his peers chosen to represent England did.
Pure footballing genius.
And apparently bordering on genius when faced with tackling a burger or a pizza (or should that be burger and a pizza)

Our players attract attention because they have been superb all season - ofcourse we are going to get offers.

We may sell one or two - the team will live on.

We may buy one or two - the team will live on.

One thing is for sure - papers will speculate, other clubs will envy, change will continue....... But SAINTS will live on!!!

Fingers crossed for player stayers and mopo signing on for another 4 years..... If we could add another few players along the way then great!

COYR!!

I dont get the negative votes here, as this guy is a Saints fan, and is a tad worried about the future, like we all are. The one thing iIdo want to point out to cristo is: NC sold Rickie Lambert to West Spam in January. Thankfully the new board stopped the sale, so please dont hero worship NC...At the end of the day, he is a business man.....There are very few football men in charge of PL clubs now...Owners and Chairmen are only here for the money the PL can make them......How many PL clubs are owned by a Brit???? its all foreigners.

Don't understand the negatives either. The man has just put his thoughts down and even if they prove to be way wide of the mark you have to agree he has an interesting chain of thought here. What if he's closer to the truth than he want to be?
The only point I thought was a tad silly was where he's asking "Why has there been no statement from the club refusing (sic) these bids" They have done over and over and over again - they couldn't make it any clearer. However the papers again today regurgitated the same old nonsense with Spurs bidding for JRod to boot. Right - Spurs (now managerless) are that stupid they will bid for a player who has just had a cruciate ligament op. Hate the rags that peddle this crap.
