3.0 out of 5 stars "okay", 11 April 2010
This review is from: Taking le Tiss (Hardcover)
The autobiography of the Southampton legend, the player who remained the big fish in the small pond that was Southampton.

This is okay in a very average typical football autobiography sort of way, it will certainly appeal to Southampton fans who appreciate his loyalty and talent, but to general football fans, it has it's moments, but never really rises above 'okay'.

Le Tissier is aware of his limitations but retains a chip on his shoulder about the way various managers have failed to appreciate what he could do. He does have a sense of humour (including self deprecating humour) and chooses not to really lash out the dirt. Interestingly it is other people less then Le Tissier that I found myself more interested in, Jimmy Case, Glenn Hoddle and so on.

So, not bad as a 'read and forget' football book, he was an enigma that never played for a 'big club' (he almost went to Spurs, but his wife of the time didn't want to move) but gave a great deal of pleasure to Southampton fans during some reasonably fallow years. For a true appreciation of the player, I would probably avoid this and buy a dvd of some of his fantastic goals...
