Might have mentioned it the other week when the news came out, I'm 40 next year and I never saw Phil Thompson play, he's not just from a generation or two back now, he's a relic. You can see why they might have hired him in the mid 90s, but not why you'd retain him a quarter of a century later. He doesn't have any relevance to a huge section of their viewers. Fine if he were really good at his job but he's not, he's competent at absolute most.
Le Tissier has been patched because he's a deranged lunatic and it was always slightly odd that on a show primarily featuring English football, Charlie Nicholas was involved as he didn't even play for an English club after 1988 and wasn't particularly a success at the one team he did play for.
Southampton may have to have a think about having Le Tissier as a club ambassador to. Regardless of what he did for them as a player when his views are so distorted to point of being irresponsible.
