Le Tissier?
I never really approved of Le Tissier. Yes, you can watch one hell of a highlights package of his goals. But whenever I watched him live, he was such a lazy git. It was like he really didn't want to be on the pitch. Several times I went to see him play and came away disappointed.

I think he also came out well from highlights of matches rather than live games. His lack of industry would be completely unacceptable today but put a game together into five minutes and he'd look class.

I think that's why he was never any good for England and never moved on either.

This seems like a strange thing to measure. Gary Speed and David Batty, both of whom won the title and played in Europe for Leeds, are named, while anyone who has played for mid-table at best Tottenham is automatically disqualified from inclusion.
Which is a shame as I would've put Gary Doherty ahead of Batty.

Did you used to boo Yakubu by any chance?

And don’t get me started on Lineker. All he did was score goals, feckin useless. What’s the point influencing the game by doing stuff that changes the result if you’re not going to run around at top speed for 90 minutes? Wankers. Give me DJ Campbell any day.

Brown Noses attitude is far too prevalent in British football and a big reason we feel so far behind the major footballing powers, work rate is important but there is far too much focus on it
Different times.

Nowadays, Le Tissier couldn't play his way and make it at the top level. Quite right too as football has moved on.

When he was at his peak, he was a genius for 5 mins of every other match, and anonymous for the rest. That was enough for Southampton to adore him but also it was only enough for Southampton.

Exactly. England misused two fantastic players in the 80's and 90's when the team should have been built around them.
