Lyle Taylor has never been one to hide his true feelings. Rightly he stepped away from social media after taking himself a little too seriously, although he couldn’t resist the odd barb, which has kept us amused during lockdown like the photo above of his namesake’s Range Rover dealership just after Matt Southall and his partner had their cars impounded.
Taylor is extremely likeable, articulate, grounded and an all round good bloke. Matt Southall is neither of those things.
Possibly we will never see Taylor in a Charlton shirt ever again, but he will move on with a lot of warmth from Addicks’ fans and whatever happens he is intent on telling some truths.
The Conv3rsation is an online football talk show hosted by journalists Darren Lewis, Troy Townsend and Rodney Hinds. They have interviewed Lyle in a three-part series and the first part is a shockingly brutal expose of playing for the club under Duchatelet and Southall. As you’d expect it is honest and heartfelt with special words for Charlton fans.
Watch it below and look out for parts 2 and 3. Part 2 will drop this weekend and the hosts will ask Lyle on his thoughts of a return to playing post Covid.
