Matt Le Tissier responds to Newcastle fan on Twitter, makes unflattering comparison

St James Park

The pundit compared Southampton with Newcastle United on social media.

Matt Le Tissier took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon to complain about a poor weekend of football for his sides.

The Southampton icon wasn't pleased with how the Saints fared against Stoke City - and one of his local teams.

But, when he expressed his disappointment on social media, a Newcastle United fan responded, suggesting he should try being a Newcastle supporter!

And Le Tissier replied, making an unflattering comparison by stating there is always someone worse off. In this case, the Magpies are certainly in a worse position than Southampton...

Newcastle's current struggles are a little more bewildering than in the past. Under Alan Pardew, there were issues. John Carver was simply incompetent.

But Steve McClaren finally earned a couple of Premier League wins and recently had the benefit of two weeks where he could train with those Newcastle players that weren't on international duty.

So what happened against Leicester?

McClaren's record is becoming more troubling every week - even Newcastle's two wins came with massive flaws. Southampton fans might just count themselves lucky they only have the one bad display to feel frustrated with.
