      Very sad to hear of the passing of a real Liverpool legend. Well remember him scoring the winner for our first F.A. cup at Wembley from a cross by Cally. A great man, who loved Liverpool F.C. Rest in peace, Ian.

      Rest in peace Saint. A part of your soul will always remain at Anfield.

      Can’t remember which local church had a poster up.
      “What will you do if Christ returns to earth.”
      Some one wrote under it,

      Move St John to inside right!

      Had a good laugh with him about that at a presentation dinner in the 80s.
      True Liverpool  legend.

      As we all know the term legend is used far too easy these days. But if you had to name 10 genuine Livetpool legends the saint makes that list every time

      I was one year old when St John lay horizontally in the air, for what seemed like seconds and bullet headed the winner at Wembley against Leeds in extra time to give us that first FA Cup win and send the red half of Merseyside into a state of Ecstasy, from which we have never recovered  ;D

      Here we are 56 years later and watching that same goal still sends shivers down my spine (even better in colour)

      A lovely man and a fantastic ambassador for the club, he will be sadly missed...

      RIP Ian St John  :(

      The word legend is used far to often these days, but with St John it is the right word. Great player and a real gentleman.

      R.I.P. Ian St John.

      Just watched a lovely tribute about him on the news, lovely lovely man, met him quite a few times over the years and he was always such a gentleman on and off the pitch.

      Condolences to his family at this sad time, been quite poorly for a few years unfortunately, but he'll always be well remembered as a real true Liverpool legend and hero.

      RIP Saint...you'll never walk alone.

      Saw him play late sixties.
      Watched in awe as a kid when he went horizontal to head the winner in the '65 Cup Final.

      Sadly missed. Another Red legend.

      Condolences to his family.
      Isaac!

      I'm too young ( maybe the last time I ever say these words ) to have seen him play, but I mostly remember him for the Saint and Grievsie shows in the 80's.

      Most of you will have seen this, but in case not

      Saint and Greavsey was my favourite program on a Saturday morning when I was a kid, only really found our about his playing career when I was older. What a legend.

      Like most of us here, I was not around when he played for us, but he got over 100 club goals, an achievement that generally doesn't get the credit it deserves compared to what other forwards have scored for us over the years.

      I was around for the last year of his TV show. He carried the whole show really, and always kept it together when Greaves interrupted him mid sentence, which was often.

      But he was an emotional character, and he struggled to fight back the tears as a pundit on Sky, when the team and club disintegrated before his eyes during Rafa's last season. The fans let everyone there know that it was 50 years since Shanks first game in charge. Just as that day though, we lost the game.

      More recently, he was co commentator on our station for the home game v Wolves two seasons ago. With his faltering and barely audible voice, clearly he wasn't in great health at the time, but he was brave enough to do it, when more regular pundits in better health should have, and for whatever reason didn't bother. But there's only one word to describe him really. Legend.
