Sir Matt mentioned on 'This Morning' as part of the Alan Shearer interview about dementia. Very very sad clip of an interview by Shearer with his wife May with Matt virtually unrecogniseable sitting quietly in a chair in the background, absolutely heartbreaking.Needs to be told where he is and when to go to bed etc. could have wept for my hero

Not sure but maybe more or might be on again on Sunday in the programme about Shearers tests etc

Matt more than a legend, one of the greats.

There's a BBC item about this on this link where Shearer mentions spending time with Mary and Matt and also mentions another former Mariners favourite Chris Nicholl. Very sad to hear that Matt no longer remembers the great memories he had and gave the supporters.

Matt Tees is my all time favourite player, so it is sad that in old age he has dementia.

If he could remember though, I bet he wouldn't change a thing.

He had a life and career that few people can have, and unfortunately we all get old and poorly, sometimes exacerbated by the profession we choose. My old dad was in a terrible state when before he died with the effects of being a deep sea trawler man, but he said he would go through it all again because he loved it so much, no matter what it brought in later life.

I guess that would be the same with Sir Matt. I hope so.

Something to think about the next time we're moaning because no one gets up to head in from a corner.  

If I had to pick out two players for their heading ability at Town over the years I've been watching Tees and Nichol would have been them.

Its so sad to see.
I'm going through all of this currently with my dad. Some days he doesn't recognise me and he now struggles to communicate. Dementia has taken control of him so quickly and its pretty hard to see your love ones like this.
I'm not a big fan of Alan Shearer but I support him on everything that he is trying to do and reach out for help and support

Kev Moore too. Whether that had any link to his later illness that sadly took his life far too early, I don't know.

Could the fans and club not come together to arrange something for Matt? Maybe a Legends game or the like, with players from the 71-2 squad there to maybe help rekindle some meories for a truly great player and a gentleman to boot? Devastated to hear just how bad his condition is.


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.
