      Very sorry to hear that sad news. I was on the Kop from the time he took over from Bert Slater. RIP Tommy.

      Quite upset now.

      F**k, I had seen this before but had honestly forgotten until you posted. Brilliant this. The light in his eyes talking about it, love it.

      RIP Tommy.

      Some of my earliest memories of Anfield was watching the flying pig pull off some seemingly impossible manoeuvres for a man of his size.

      RIP Tommy Lawrence.

      Our first ever FA Cup winning goalkeeper and must have been one of the most central figures during Shankly's reign at Liverpool.

      He must have had some career at Liverpool, witnessing the arrival of Shankly and seeing us go from Second Division also rans to the top of the pile.

      RIP Tommy - I bet he would have been a lot more interesting ex-red to chat to than some of the ex-pros we listen to week in week out.

      Very sad day.

      It's always sad to hear of the passing of players from that period in history and even tougher when they made it with their club. Always loved reading and seeing clips of Liverpool from that era but no one can tell it better than the supporters and the players from that special era for the club (and British football in general). By all accounts an icon from the golden age and most importantly a total gentleman.

      Rest in peace Tommy Lawrence.

      Saw that interview a few years back - absolutely brilliant... I think a hell of a lot of players could learn a lot from spending time with the old guard. Will be a massive loss to his family, thoughts are with them...

      RIP Tommy

      I had the utmost pleasure to see Tommy play. As a young fan he always had a word as he left Anfield and I treasure the team photo he signed for me and my friends when we went at half term to watch them train, then bussed it back to a Anfield to wait for them to come out after lunch.
      RIP Tommy, they don’ t make them like you anymore, a lovely humble man and a great servant to this Club. Deepest condolences to his family and friends. Sleep well Tommy, night, night.
