A good Matt Le Tiss Q&A Session
There are a few good laughs in that.
Ta for the link.
8.) What's the best dream you've ever had about football?
I had a dream that I was just about to score the winning penalty in the World Cup Final. I was just about to score it - this is a dream I had as a kid - and as I was stepping up to score the winner in the World Cup Final ... my mum woke me up and I had to go to school. So I never knew if I missed it or not.
Pffft of course he scored
I thought this was something to do with the Mirror Newspaper, but the level of questions seems more like something from CBeebies. Think Mr Pardew would have been suitably embarrassed answering questions like those and rightly so.
Name of own team "The fat lazy barstad's". Superb.
Thanks for that link enjoyed it. Wonder if he still likes bingo, malibu and coke and Chesney Hawkes.
LOL - I wonder if he got paid for this? If it was to promote his book you learned more about his attitude in those 20 questions without the need to pick up his actual book that for it's content it is somewhat overpriced even if you can get it with a 7O% discount in my significantly less than professional literay opinion.

Taking Le Tiss, Fat Lazy ba5tard5, too laid back for superstitions, 10 minute rest on the medical bench before a game...statements that makes you think of the player he could have been if he had an attitude to compliment his undoubted skill.
We did learn than Beattie was quicker by 10 sec over 100m than Le Tiss and I would venture our club president at the time would have been 10 secs quicker than Le Tiss.
All very self deprecating what a guy stuff don't you think? However, hardly the spirit of a true legend and of the type we need in the game today. I prefer my legends not to have to confuse self-deprecating with self-parody as it insults the memory of the fans who supported them and not to mention it undermines their actual achievements which in MLT's case isn't as near as much as they should have been. IMO with his new found media 'style' it's not difficult to understand why he has little to show for his career in retrospect.
Now if you'll excuse me I need to go and remove the hook and finish off this morsel of bait.
The article states it was to promote Nationwide Building Society who are a major sponsor of the England Team. There was also a picture of the T-Shirt that the article is giving publicity to.
Minor detail so shouldn't stand in the way of a dig at MLT or his book

Not a bad margin over 0.5% base rate is it compared to mortgage rates pre -crash? You're an intelligent man though Phil so you will know it's all about the rates banks lend to each other and will know 3 month LIBOR has been arround 0.6 -0.7 % and even 1 year Libor is at only 0.8%.
Couple that with I suspect some less than satisfcatory rates for their savers it's grand to see the Nationwide can afford to be a major sponsor of the World Cup for England. I guess potentially paying some notable ex international to promote their campaign is money well spent instead of shaving off a few percentage points off their over inflated mortgage rates and improve their customers standard of living.
Taking Le Tiss if you ask me.
Nationwide is a building society not a bank. It does not have shareholders and therefore is not profit-driven. What it can do is build up it's reserves so it can lend to more people.

Funnily enough I don't have an irrational hatred of anyone, I'm quite balanced really. I know everyone in Southampton tends to dislike Portsmouth, but I come from Guernsey so it was Jersey that I didn't like when I was growing up."
Irrational hatred was the question and a sensible answer was given.
everytime NC writes a rant I always imagine him typing away enthusiastically to this tune :
a bit like the goal against Tim Flowers, but I cant help myself. I own the shirt he was wearing when he scored THAT goal against Arsenal
lol... He does have an air of "Disgruntled of Chandlers Ford" about him doesn't he?
