[Quotes on Matt Le Tissier] There is something even more important. Matt will have inspired a whole new generation of Southampton players and Southampton fans. Kids of 11 and 12 will have dreamt of being Matt Le Tissier, will in 20 years’ time be fathers taking their own sons to the games. The 32,000 people who came on Tuesday won’t forget him. How much of a failure is that?

[He is desperately hoping his beloved Saints can take something from the match, as they were so close to doing last November] I hope I can get up there. It will be interesting, City and Liverpool look like the teams to beat this season so it’s not going to be easy. But you never know in these games. Often it’s when teams are underestimated that they put it all together and get a good result.
