Saints cancel Le Tissier meeting

Updated on in Sport

Saints chairman Nicola Cortese's meeting with Matt Le Tissier has been cancelled, with the club claiming their former player has not acted "in good faith".

As reported this morning, the pair had agreed to hold talks in about a month's time to discuss their differences.

However, the club have now confirmed they have cancelled the meeting.

A club spokesman said: ''A meeting was organised between Nicola Cortese, the club's executive chairman, and Matthew Le Tissier in what the club believed was good faith.

''Both parties had agreed that it would be a private meeting with no publicity surrounding it, yet within 24 hours this matter was put in the public domain and further negative comments attributed to Mr Le Tissier have appeared this morning.

''As an ex-player, Mr Le Tissier's achievements are well known.

''However, his repeated criticisms over a prolonged period of time are not justified and have not merited any response from the club. Nor has the motive for these personal attacks ever been made entirely clear.

''Mr Cortese wishes to reiterate that he will not make comment about somebody he does not know personally - and that includes Mr Le Tissier.

''These criticisms have not affected the club's success and progress on or off the pitch in recent years and will not divert the club from its course in the future.

''For Mr Le Tissier to agree to meet 'in good faith' and then make such comments can only be seen as a breach of good faith and certainly not in the best interests of the club.

''Mr Le Tissier also refers to his friend Francis Benali having the best interests of the club at heart, while neglecting to mention that the same person is currently suing Southampton Football Club in relation to a lease dispute and lost ambassadorial fees.

''It is a legal action the club will be defending rigorously in the best interests of the club and its reputation.

''In all the circumstances and in light of the comments attributed to Mr Le Tissier, the club believes that it is now not possible for the above mentioned meeting to take place in good faith.

''We would nevertheless encourage Mr Le Tissier to join with our fans and continue to enjoy the success the club has achieved over the last three and a half years.

''The club now considers this matter closed and will not be making any further comment about it.''

We have been here before with MT – he is just a pundit, nothing more – a retired Southampton footballer with a great record and commitment on the field [for which we thank him sincerely] – but now he is just a TV pundit, albeit a good one – a ‘personality’. MT is no match for Mr Cortese in the Boardroom and should stick to what he now does best – game punditry. Chairmen are appointed to represent the organisation, not to get into minutiae with individuals on personalised issues. If I was Mr Cortese, I would certainly ignore him – his responsibilities are to achieve good things for the club, not to be diverted down side streets to enable MT to exercise his ego in public. Drop the topic! It is not worth pursuing further.

Whatever the facts of the argument and whatever the background behind it I have to say I find it very starnge that one of the participants feels the need to make the argument public while the other who apparently has an "ego" problem rarely seeks press attention or publicity of any sort. MLT will always be a Saints footbal legend and quite rightly so but why oh why does he feel the need to continue publicly slagging off the chairman and by association our club is beyond me. Despite all that had gone before NC agreed to a meeting but asked that it be private, a reasonable request I would think but no MLT runs straight to NCs favourite publication (NOT!!) and announces it.

Also have to agree with NC here. As much as I think he is self centered and arrogant, he is also, at the very least, consistent with his privacy. It was "big" of him to accept a private meeting with MLT but the article made that meeting public. I don't blame NC for canceling the meeting. On another note, the Echo had reported in the past that the club was not treating its former players well, namely Francis Benali. But in their reports, they failed to mention that FB was suing SFC. So now I can also understand why they would ban him, - it was not for no reason as earlier reported. Comes to show that there are always two sides to every story.

Well said, I agree entirely. That is why he is so unlike any of the other club Chief Executives. If a private meeting is agreed it is just that, private. This would have been an ideal opportunity to resolve this in a professional manner. As I posted earleir today, from MLTs point of view it all seems so trivial, what's the big deal? Why it has made a newspaper headline is beyond me. Unless it is just pubilicity seeking.

Matt was once considered a legend when he was putting club before medals and honours. Now that he no longer 'pulls on his boots' for the club, you come out with snide comments like this. Matt built up his profile long before he was a regular on TV, and that profile was one that showed him to be an honest, loyal, man of his word. It is not Matt that should apologise for gobbing off, it is people like yourself, who have such short memories that shold do the apolgising.

I want a meeting with Cortese !! I demand to be given the chance to shake his hand and thank him for setting up the rescue of my club. I demand to praise his raising of the capital to buy new players. I will settle for nothing less than wholesome praise for improving the concept and the reality of our youth development academy. I was in the crowd earlier this season for almost two and a half hours and I would love to know if he remembers me, or at least explain how can he deny it ? I demand to be given a role ate the club by offering my vocsal support club and coughing up my hard earned cash at the turnstile to demonstrate my commitment. It will be in good faith - I promise not to talk about it to the Daily ChipWrapper. How can he refuse .. and if he dares to refuse me an audience I WILL NOT go to the tabloids, local chipwrapper or Sky TV. There !!! That told him. Yeah !!

Exactly right! Matt will continue to shoot himself in the foot as far as Saints is concerned if he can not accept the way Saints like to deal with things behind closed doors! Matt being at Sky probably doesn't help him in this situation as he would never be able to keep quiet about what was discussed. He should remove all comments about NC from Twitter and state that he was wrong to discuss details of the meeting.

I am no friend of NC, but I would suggest that he is right on this occasion. MLT was a good player some while ago, he should now recognise that he has to learn another trade elsewhere. In particular, he should learn about morals and ethics, and learn how to keep his mouth shut when necessary. I was not impressed when he muddied the waters 3 or 4 years ago when the Club was in administration. Fronting a very dubious crowd, who allegedly were trying to take over, was very naive indeed. Delusions of grandeur, perhaps. I have watched, and supported, Saints since 1947, when I was 5 years of age. You've tried to put up MLT, now it's time to shut up. Tony Robertson, Stranraer.

O Matt, can you not just keep your mouth shut for five minutes?

Yes! I thought the way he treated Adkins as 'Utterly decent' and showed the qualities of an English gentleman. All of the media shared the same thought didn't they?
from john lennon's working class hero "there is room at the top they are telling you still, but first you must learn to smile as you kill" decent
skeight !
Chris Nicholl, Ian Branfoot, Dave Merrington, Stuart Gray, Jan Poortvliet... managers get sacked. It happens, and it usually appears more ugly than when these people, themselves, had to tell some kid that he won't make the grade at the club. That's all it is. Can we not all be a bit more grown up about it?

Look at their records and then compare it with Adkins record. Their sacking could be justifed by the results that had been achieved while they were the manager, but Adkins did not deserve the sack with the results achieved while he was maager.

linesman you are more than welcome to use your real name as your user name. i have met mlt many times though not for a few years, i met many of the players around the time that matt played for saints including dodd, claus, tessem and gary monk and i never `fawned` over any of them, i treated them with respect. i would not say that i `knew` any of them, however i once said to matt that he should keep hs mouth shut on the pitch as it cost him and the team, he accepted what i said but said that he cant help it when hes playing. thing is he can stop and think about it now, he can take a step back before going to the press or twttier. if a spoke to matt again i would say that to him and hope that he would accept it again. the worst player i ever spoke to was Ian Turner, this was only 8 or so years ago, i went up to him and said how i was a saints fans and was pleased to meet an fa cup hero, he repplied "well i`m a Middlesbrough fan so i dont care" nice!

Well said, I agree entirely. That is why he is so unlike any of the other club Chief Executives. If a private meeting is agreed it is just that, private. This would have been an ideal opportunity to resolve this in a professional manner. As I posted earleir today, from MLTs point of view it all seems so trivial, what's the big deal? Why it has made a newspaper headline is beyond me. Unless it is just pubilicity seeking.

Yes! I thought the way he treated Adkins as 'Utterly decent' and showed the qualities of an English gentleman. All of the media shared the same thought didn't they?
You don't know how he treated Adkins though do you? You only know what you have been told by the media and come to a conclusion. When you KNOW, make a judgement then STID

Interesting. I am surprised that the club released such a long (verbose?) statement. MLT was a great servant to the club and for the time and I understand was well paid for his contribution. Maybe he could have joined a “bigger” club at the height of his powers but then again that might have come with greater responsibilities and some might argue he chose to be a “big fish” (excuse the connotations) in a small pond. Personally I had the pleasure of watching him often and he was clearly one of the most gifted players of his generation. However he now plies his trade as a football pundit and I guess there is nothing wrong with that. As far as the current management at saints are concerned – MLT is an ex-employee who has rightly or wrongly strong opinions with regard to how SFC is run. He is a simply a pundit with his own agenda – I am surprised NC et al do not just treat him as such.

This could be a job for Mulder and scully. Oh, btw, Horse, you mentioned the legend that is Ian Turner earlier. I met him once when I served him at my then workplace in Southampton. I said, 'You are who I think you are, aren't you?' Clearly annoyed by the question and not wanting to comment further, he simply replied, 'yes!' There after, the entire transaction was conducted in very short sentences from me and one word answers (yes or no) from him. Pity, I'd have loved to have praised his bravery for those early somewhat heart-stopping saves he made at Wembley that day. I didn't ask for his autograph.

To be fair to Mr Cortese, most of us have our own houses/businesses and we wouldn't expect any of the previous owners/employees to tell us how we should be running them now. MLT thought he was going to be part of a group who bought the Saints and he was stitched up royally. That was publicly humiliating for him, but it was not Mr Cortese's or the Liebherr family's fault. Mr Cortese may then have poured a little salt on Matt's wounds with some of his earlier remarks, but tensions were running high on all fronts at that time. Matt lost, and he should accept that graciously. I would have thought that anyone who supported the Saints during Matt's time would have learnt to accept defeats graciously - we certainly did have a few back then! Sure, Matt is a legend of the past, but would any of us accept his interference in the way we run our business or lives? I wouldn't, so I can see why Mr Cortese won't either. Harmony doesn't go hand in hand with success and so I personally don't care who likes who at the club. Like any true Saints fan, though, I will always support them until the day I die. I did when the club was being led by Ted Bates, I did through Rupert Lowe's tenure, and I do now. The past has gone and the future hasn't turned up yet, so let's all just embrace the now for what it is and keep backing the current lads to the full. We have to let all this bickering just die a death. COYR STID

Agreed, Milton. He's single-handedly ruining this site. In fairness to me, my response was only to a question asked by him, which under the circumstances, deserved an honest reply - which he doesn't believe anyway, poor s0d.

Cortese held out an olive branch to MLT. It's quite likely that Cortese would have filled MLT in on plans for the club going forward and could well have divulged confidential info that he didn't want falling into the hands of other clubs. Hence Cortese required complete confidentiality. Instead MLT proved that he simply cannot be trusted with confidential information! It's not so long ago that MLT allegedly admitted to being involved in a betting scam. Cortese was RIGHT to cancel the meeting under the circumstances. MLT was a great footballer, but off the pitch he appears to be a bit of a shady character and has become a bit of a joke, in my opinion. It's time for fans to get behind Cortese; he knows what he is doing. Fans should stop harking back to past glories and should instead looking forward to future ones. We're on the cusp of something huge...give it a couple of years, mark my words! SuperSaints! Champione Cortese!

Did somebody speak?
Why did you report my message, it wasn't offensive or abusive. It's football banter, you give Southampton fans a bad name!
You've asked a question and you deserve an honest reply. I saw your comment and sent my 'did someone speak?' post. I then went to eat dinner and have just returned. Odd, I thought, where is your reply? I loathe WUMs like you coming on here spouting cr4p which ruins the thread but I promise you this, I most certainly did NOT report you or your post - FACT! Now bog off back to the boring, lonely hole you crawled out of and let Saints fans get on with discussing Saints-related stories.
I might report him. Shall we take a poll on it? Who thinks 'Glory Glory Man United' is a sad skunt troll who is too embarrassed to even admit to supporting the abortion bucket that is the blueshite down the road or is he a genuine football fan with an interest in advancing debate? YOU decide.
this is getting better than when dallas had the `who shot jr` story. who reported kenty? was it J7, or stras, or st ret, or was it Kristin Shepard? my money is on kenty himself, hes got so many logins he probably did it to himself (every pun intended).
This could be a job for Mulder and scully. Oh, btw, Horse, you mentioned the legend that is Ian Turner earlier. I met him once when I served him at my then workplace in Southampton. I said, 'You are who I think you are, aren't you?' Clearly annoyed by the question and not wanting to comment further, he simply replied, 'yes!' There after, the entire transaction was conducted in very short sentences from me and one word answers (yes or no) from him. Pity, I'd have loved to have praised his bravery for those early somewhat heart-stopping saves he made at Wembley that day. I didn't ask for his autograph.

thats all i got from him. again i never asked for his autograph. i often thought that maybe i caught him on an off day, but if you had the same experience then perhaps he is the arrogant ignorant twit i thought he was. i have never put footballers on a pedestal, ever since i was young and saw david armstrong shopping in carefore and mick mills in mfi, but as i said i do treat them with respect its just a shame that a legend couldnt take 5 mins out of his busy `sit at the bar` day to talk to a fan.

To be fair to Mr Cortese, most of us have our own houses/businesses and we wouldn't expect any of the previous owners/employees to tell us how we should be running them now. MLT thought he was going to be part of a group who bought the Saints and he was stitched up royally. That was publicly humiliating for him, but it was not Mr Cortese's or the Liebherr family's fault. Mr Cortese may then have poured a little salt on Matt's wounds with some of his earlier remarks, but tensions were running high on all fronts at that time. Matt lost, and he should accept that graciously. I would have thought that anyone who supported the Saints during Matt's time would have learnt to accept defeats graciously - we certainly did have a few back then! Sure, Matt is a legend of the past, but would any of us accept his interference in the way we run our business or lives? I wouldn't, so I can see why Mr Cortese won't either. Harmony doesn't go hand in hand with success and so I personally don't care who likes who at the club. Like any true Saints fan, though, I will always support them until the day I die. I did when the club was being led by Ted Bates, I did through Rupert Lowe's tenure, and I do now. The past has gone and the future hasn't turned up yet, so let's all just embrace the now for what it is and keep backing the current lads to the full. We have to let all this bickering just die a death. COYR STID

Cortese is right, Matt has been blubbering on twitter for ages on and off. basically undermining the club with all this nonsense. Personal issues with the club should be dealt with privately, if you really love the club you played for.Not blasted around everywhere. Fantastic player Matt, fantastic loyalty but if you love the club and the fans, why keep embarrassing yourself and us on twitter and the media. There are a whole generation of Saints fans coming through who only see you as ancient history mate. All they are seeing is someone they never saw play, running down the person that basically saved our club. They think to the future, the next game not the past. Can you imagine how you are coming across to them? They won't judge you on a decade ago as we do, but on her and now and it does not look cool. Well done Scunthorpe, nice to see NA's old club get a deserved result tonight and out of the relegation place I believe.
Agree 100 % , private should be just that .

nice smokescreen, deal with the facts buddy- this isnt the only source that says matt didnt keep his end of the bargain! wake up.
Wake up yourself dude...Le Tissier is a Saints LEGEND...end of and showed an incredible amount of loyalty...where is your loyalty to Le God...if it wasn't for him we wouldn't even be in the position we are now in as we would have been relegated and followed in the path of teams like Sheff Weds etc....NC wouldn't have been interested then as we would still have been at The Dell...no new stadium etc...so at least show Matt some respect rather than having a go at him on unfounded rumours...Le Tiss' Saints facts speak for themselves over the last 25 years.

No disrespect intended ..... but do you really believe what you've just written ? .............. Matt was quality but he didn't get us a new stadium and we did get relegated .

I like NC's style. He seems reserved, measured, not given to hysteria, and utterly decent. In fact, he seems to show all the qualities of an English gentleman. It's a pity they don't seem to make them like that here anymore. That, and decent cars.
Yes! I thought the way he treated Adkins as 'Utterly decent' and showed the qualities of an English gentleman. All of the media shared the same thought didn't they?
You don't know how he treated Adkins though do you? You only know what you have been told by the media and come to a conclusion. When you KNOW, make a judgement then STID
I know that Adkins was sacked. I know that Adkins was surprised to be sacked. I know that his replacement had been briefed that he had the job some considerable time before, which is why he was spending time watching the team in action. I know that Adkins is, at present, out of work. If you think that Cortese told Adkins that his job was on the line, and that he should be sending out invitations for his farewell party, I am afraid that I just don't buy into it.
Old news...get over it.
If it is old, it is not News. I was responding to another article, which means that what I wrote was news, because I had not written it before. I hope that you can get over that.
are you a lineman for the county do you drive the main road........

Nope. Just a fisherman.

HANG ON! Le Tiss has (sort of) apologised on twitter. Apparently all his quotes came from him being 'too honest' at a fans Q&A session. It's a bit of a shitstorm, frankly. Can't we all just get along?

Get along? No way am I going to get along with you! You like Justin Beiber :)

If Le Tiss had any actual evidence to present that would be a cause for concern for fans he'd have presented it by now. I understand he feels Franny has been a bit hard done by but for fcuks sake there's a recession on and most fans are suffering a lot more than some bloke whose massive house has been redecorated not to his liking. Right now the resurgent Southampton Football Club is the main source of joy for thousands of people and they're going to back the man who has worked insanely hard to achieve that ahead of a player (however brilliant) who served them in the past.

In this case its just pathetic, who cares who knows they were meeting, what gravity does it hold ? exactly ! NONE...... The word coward keep getting mentioned..... it may end up sticking if he keeps chickening out of meets, his new managers press conference, an irrelevant meeting with an ex-player....

Matt is a legend...(unike most of us here), but he is a fan (just like us here) and welcome to his opinion (just like us here). I just don't like the fact that he uses his media profile to voice his opinions...he appears to be trying to undermine our CEO using his high profile just because of some personal gripe. It does no good for the Club whatsoever. He needs to pipe down imo.
The big difference is that he voices his opinion under his own name, where we use a 'nom de plume.' I have not the slightest doubt that all of Matt's critics on here, would be fawning all over him, telling him what a wonderful fellah he is, and how they agree with him, if they were to meet him in the street.
linesman you are more than welcome to use your real name as your user name. i have met mlt many times though not for a few years, i met many of the players around the time that matt played for saints including dodd, claus, tessem and gary monk and i never `fawned` over any of them, i treated them with respect. i would not say that i `knew` any of them, however i once said to matt that he should keep hs mouth shut on the pitch as it cost him and the team, he accepted what i said but said that he cant help it when hes playing. thing is he can stop and think about it now, he can take a step back before going to the press or twttier. if a spoke to matt again i would say that to him and hope that he would accept it again. the worst player i ever spoke to was Ian Turner, this was only 8 or so years ago, i went up to him and said how i was a saints fans and was pleased to meet an fa cup hero, he repplied "well i`m a Middlesbrough fan so i dont care" nice!

You are right. I could use my name, but with some of the statements made by people on here when the disagree with what others say, I think it safer to remain as Linesman. Some may say that your approach to Ian Turner could be described as fawning. I guess you would not make the same mistake again.

mgra you often have a go at the `real fans` who believe the bs that comes from sms, and you also say `anyone who knows matt` and then go on to tell us how everything said against him is spin from the club. well as i said earlier i dont `know` matt butt i have met and spoken to him many times, i have also `met` other players from the 90`s and even had a very nice phone conversation with gary monk. what i can tell you (as there is lots that i wont) is that the players are not adverse to a bit of `spin and gossip` and often `smear` other players. they also cover for each other and lie. you can read matts book for any of that by the way! what i am saying is you are accusing NC of a `smear` campaign against MLT yet MLT is the one doing the talking. i have a lot of time and respect for matt but i also know enough of what he is capable off to know that there are two sides to this. oh and if you bothered to read most posts on here you would see that saints fans are not, would not and wouldnt allow our history to be erased! what we dont do though is cling onto every piece of history as if its the most precious item in the world (like poopey fans). we are proud of our history and our ex-players but we also know that we are in the present and looking to the future. matt is not the future of saints. i like many would like matt to be part of our journey and would rather he found a way to keep quiet, if only whilst NC is in charge. dont treat all fans who dont agree with you as stupid and gullible, we were not that stupid and gullible when you kept on about gastons injury were we?

Yo dude we never got relegated when Le Tiss was playing for us...what my point was.... that if Le Tiss had left us when he could have...we almost certainly would have been relegated scuppering any plans for a new stadium as the finances would not have been there as Mr Lowe in his so called wisdom relied on us being in the Prem for SMS to work...as we have seen this was very short sighted as when we did get relegated the club's finances went down the pan hence giving NC the opportunity of being Chairman. I hope this explains where I was coming from and how Le Tiss in actual fact gave NC the job he has today lol !!!

I have to agree with Mr Cortese, if it was agreed to have a meeting in private , it is just a pity that it has got to the "ECHO" Mr Cortese has made it quite plain that he does not welcome comment from those connected with the Club in the past even it is from ex managers or players Just a pity that the "Echo" continues to stir things up at every opportunity! I never buy the !Echo" on a Saturday as the game has changed so much since 1976, you can not continue to live on past achievements ! This is recogniised by Nicola!
What a load of bo***cks! That'll be the same local paper that he's banned from the ground for the last two years. Why?No journalists even allowed to interview supporters outside the ground on match days.Why? Despite paying for their own tickets, no legends welcomed, recognised or respected for service for all those years of great memories that true supporters cherish.Why? Smell the coffee, I'll tell you why, because all that achievement and talent had nothing to do with him. The word missing from your post is Dictator and ego is the biggest thing this little man has! How weak! Btw without heritage, there is no club!
its hilarious how many "real fans" on here now sh1t on the reputation of MLT based on spin and gossip.. Its pathetic.. Anyone that knows Matt knows exactly what is going on here and only total muppets will swallow this utter BS from SMS... yet more smears and cr&p, what is next ? to let us know 6th hand which player's wife NA is supposed to have slept with ? which fantasy is next for all the stupid and gullible to feed on ? What better way to erase the past that to get your own so called "supporters" to erase it... well done "real fans"
nice smokescreen, deal with the facts buddy- this isnt the only source that says matt didnt keep his end of the bargain! wake up.
Wake up yourself dude...Le Tissier is a Saints LEGEND...end of and showed an incredible amount of loyalty...where is your loyalty to Le God...if it wasn't for him we wouldn't even be in the position we are now in as we would have been relegated and followed in the path of teams like Sheff Weds etc....NC wouldn't have been interested then as we would still have been at The Dell...no new stadium etc...so at least show Matt some respect rather than having a go at him on unfounded rumours...Le Tiss' Saints facts speak for themselves over the last 25 years.
No disrespect intended ..... but do you really believe what you've just written ? .............. Matt was quality but he didn't get us a new stadium and we did get relegated .
Yo dude we never got relegated when Le Tiss was playing for us...what my point was.... that if Le Tiss had left us when he could have...we almost certainly would have been relegated scuppering any plans for a new stadium as the finances would not have been there as Mr Lowe in his so called wisdom relied on us being in the Prem for SMS to work...as we have seen this was very short sighted as when we did get relegated the club's finances went down the pan hence giving NC the opportunity of being Chairman. I hope this explains where I was coming from and how Le Tiss in actual fact gave NC the job he has today lol !!!

Understood though not totally agreed ...... COYR !

mgra you often have a go at the `real fans` who believe the bs that comes from sms, and you also say `anyone who knows matt` and then go on to tell us how everything said against him is spin from the club. well as i said earlier i dont `know` matt butt i have met and spoken to him many times, i have also `met` other players from the 90`s and even had a very nice phone conversation with gary monk. what i can tell you (as there is lots that i wont) is that the players are not adverse to a bit of `spin and gossip` and often `smear` other players. they also cover for each other and lie. you can read matts book for any of that by the way! what i am saying is you are accusing NC of a `smear` campaign against MLT yet MLT is the one doing the talking. i have a lot of time and respect for matt but i also know enough of what he is capable off to know that there are two sides to this. oh and if you bothered to read most posts on here you would see that saints fans are not, would not and wouldnt allow our history to be erased! what we dont do though is cling onto every piece of history as if its the most precious item in the world (like poopey fans). we are proud of our history and our ex-players but we also know that we are in the present and looking to the future. matt is not the future of saints. i like many would like matt to be part of our journey and would rather he found a way to keep quiet, if only whilst NC is in charge. dont treat all fans who dont agree with you as stupid and gullible, we were not that stupid and gullible when you kept on about gastons injury were we?
Good lad.

This is jeremy kyle meets saints-so-called-sup porters. Hilarious.....You are stupid and gullible if you think this cr&p is credible..... Spinning only works if idiots think the gossip is real life.... Its made Jeremy Kyle a millionaire and he did not do it without people like you....

No, he just got it out of hock when we were in terminal meltdown or have you forgotten so conveniently what he actually did do for us? Honestly I go our a night and this site goes downhill fast, more WUMs than decent posters, what a crock.

mgra you often have a go at the `real fans` who believe the bs that comes from sms, and you also say `anyone who knows matt` and then go on to tell us how everything said against him is spin from the club. well as i said earlier i dont `know` matt butt i have met and spoken to him many times, i have also `met` other players from the 90`s and even had a very nice phone conversation with gary monk. what i can tell you (as there is lots that i wont) is that the players are not adverse to a bit of `spin and gossip` and often `smear` other players. they also cover for each other and lie. you can read matts book for any of that by the way! what i am saying is you are accusing NC of a `smear` campaign against MLT yet MLT is the one doing the talking. i have a lot of time and respect for matt but i also know enough of what he is capable off to know that there are two sides to this. oh and if you bothered to read most posts on here you would see that saints fans are not, would not and wouldnt allow our history to be erased! what we dont do though is cling onto every piece of history as if its the most precious item in the world (like poopey fans). we are proud of our history and our ex-players but we also know that we are in the present and looking to the future. matt is not the future of saints. i like many would like matt to be part of our journey and would rather he found a way to keep quiet, if only whilst NC is in charge. dont treat all fans who dont agree with you as stupid and gullible, we were not that stupid and gullible when you kept on about gastons injury were we?
Good lad.
This is jeremy kyle meets saints-so-called-sup porters. Hilarious.....You are stupid and gullible if you think this cr&p is credible..... Spinning only works if idiots think the gossip is real life.... Its made Jeremy Kyle a millionaire and he did not do it without people like you....

In my limited experience of behavioral study it would appear to me that once a person resorts to insults it means that they've lost the argument .

I have to agree with Mr Cortese, if it was agreed to have a meeting in private , it is just a pity that it has got to the "ECHO" Mr Cortese has made it quite plain that he does not welcome comment from those connected with the Club in the past even it is from ex managers or players Just a pity that the "Echo" continues to stir things up at every opportunity! I never buy the !Echo" on a Saturday as the game has changed so much since 1976, you can not continue to live on past achievements ! This is recogniised by Nicola!
What a load of bo***cks! That'll be the same local paper that he's banned from the ground for the last two years. Why?No journalists even allowed to interview supporters outside the ground on match days.Why? Despite paying for their own tickets, no legends welcomed, recognised or respected for service for all those years of great memories that true supporters cherish.Why? Smell the coffee, I'll tell you why, because all that achievement and talent had nothing to do with him. The word missing from your post is Dictator and ego is the biggest thing this little man has! How weak! Btw without heritage, there is no club!
its hilarious how many "real fans" on here now sh1t on the reputation of MLT based on spin and gossip.. Its pathetic.. Anyone that knows Matt knows exactly what is going on here and only total muppets will swallow this utter BS from SMS... yet more smears and cr&p, what is next ? to let us know 6th hand which player's wife NA is supposed to have slept with ? which fantasy is next for all the stupid and gullible to feed on ?

nice smokescreen, deal with the facts buddy- this isnt the only source that says matt didnt keep his end of the bargain! wake up.
Wake up yourself dude...Le Tissier is a Saints LEGEND...end of and showed an incredible amount of loyalty...where is your loyalty to Le God...if it wasn't for him we wouldn't even be in the position we are now in as we would have been relegated and followed in the path of teams like Sheff Weds etc....NC wouldn't have been interested then as we would still have been at The Dell...no new stadium etc...so at least show Matt some respect rather than having a go at him on unfounded rumours...Le Tiss' Saints facts speak for themselves over the last 25 years.
No disrespect intended ..... but do you really believe what you've just written ? .............. Matt was quality but he didn't get us a new stadium and we did get relegated .
Cortese did not get us a new stadium either.
No, he just got it out of hock when we were in terminal meltdown or have you forgotten so conveniently what he actually did do for us? Honestly I go our a night and this site goes downhill fast, more WUMs than decent posters, what a crock.

No sorry muppet.. "he" did not get it out of hock... his EMPLOYER did. People on here seem to forget or are too stupid too realise that NC is working for the estate of ML.

10.30pm MGRA is up for an arguement again.
I will defend MLT who is being smeared by a shallow spin machine that seems to fool so called "fans". I respect you and your brother's football opinions for sure but I can not believe you have fallen for this cr&p. Its just shallow showbiz-bollux. Just like the muppets who think AP was doing JF's missus.... just because it came from SMS does not make it true. In this case its just pathetic, who cares who knows they were meeting, what gravity does it hold ? exactly ! NONE...... The word coward keep getting mentioned..... it may end up sticking if he keeps chickening out of meets, his new managers press conference, an irrelevant meeting with an ex-player....

Oh Yeah spin machine??!!! No doubt you know that the Americans never landed on the moon, and orchestrated 9/11 themselves, Elvis is still alive,Monroe was murdered as was Diana too! Pleeeeease! STID "real fan"
