Will this be the first time a person will be a contestant after previously having been a DC guest?

He'll certainly be the first person to appear after being both a DC guest and a conundrum.

LETISSIER was in Wayne Kelly's final many years ago (with the other conundrum being LIAMBRADY, from memory).

He plays on apterous as Matthew Tassier, right?

Yeah, and Graeme Le Saux plays as Bob de Caux, so I imagine he'll be on shortly as well.

It would be poignant if Jeff Stelling was in DC

Also Jimmy Bullard plays as Adam Gillard. And I'm really the Jim Bentley that manages Morecambe FC.

I wonder if he'll reciprocate and say that I'm his favourite player?

Ok, for those of you that don't know, Matt Le Tissier is recording on September 14th, not sure which show he is on that day but recordings are at 1pm for first three shows and the last two at 6pm.

Dictionary corner guest has changed for this one now, in DC for Matt Le Tissier is now Graeme Le Saux his old Southampton Team Mate, it was scheduled to be Tony Jacklin, I believe Graeme Le Saux is also clever enough to go on the show from what I was told.

I don't follow football very much. Is it a rule that all Southampton players must have the middle name "Le"?

Jon Le Corby lives in hope.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Don't think Le Tiss and Le Saux were ever at Southampton at the same time. Were definitely England team mates (briefly) though.

Is the change an attempt to persuade Le Saux to apply himself, and follow it up with a footballers special?
Definitely not Jamie McNeill or Schrodinger's Cat....

Don't worry, Jon. You shouldn't have to wait too long, as he'll be on just a couple of weeks after recording, either at the end of this month or the start of the next. ;) :) :D

I think all the England games featuring those two were filmed and shown years ago.

Spoiler alert - They didn't win the World Cup.

It's being filmed today and James is in the audience, so confirmed by the CD team, presumably.

Yes, it's simply the advantage of me being there when it happened that helped me know that piece of knowledge. ;) :) :D
