Le Tiss Coaching School Opens
Applied for a role there.
MLT is a top bloke, and I really hope this works - I'm sure it will, when players get good enough I hope saints to get him to help our lot.
Thanks for posting that, it's a really good article.

And let's face it, it can't hurt to try something different given the lack of English talent coming through.
I look forward to seeing how this goes.
Adkins might think about sending some our players round to him so they can be taught how to take corners and dead ball kicks.

coaching the art of eating a mars bar while taking a swig of coca cola. I doubt you can teach players MLT's skill, I hope he has an insight into the game that can be taught
This. Never understood why England don't use him for the two weeks before tournaments, to coach penalty taking at least

Some might say he was lazy on the pitch. His reluctance to go through the 'boredom' of the coaching badges would suggest he's lazy off it too. Don't get me wrong, he's a legend and I'm priviledged to have been able to watch him from start to finish at Saints, but I'm not sure if this is gonna work out, but I hope it does.
Good luck Matt.
