    Re: Ray Wilkins get well soon

    Ex. Chelsea, ex Man U - doesnt matter, loved listening to him on talk sport, and in commentaries, as well. Loved him as a pundit, and he came across as a genuinely nice bloke who loved his football.

    Hope they have a minutes applause/silence for him tonight. Gentleman.

    R.I.P Ray,

    sounds like he was a smashing fella, lots of good tales on the radio about the man

    61 is no age, yet another reminder (as if we need one) of how precious life is

    Sad as he was an ex-Fulham manager and coach. Excellent player, good pundit and seemed a genuine and warm guy. The amount of tributes flooding in show what high esteem he was held in by his peers. RIP Ray

    Felt like being punched in the gut when news came on the radio leaving work.

    RIP Ray

    Kids grow up with heroes - I had two - Bryan Robson and Ray Wilkins - I wore their boots - I bought their shirts - I tore every picture out of Roy of the Rovers and Match and Shoot - RIP ‘Butch’ - taken far too soon

    Re: Ray Wilkins get well soon

    So sad to hear this, I was really hoping that he'd pull through.

    Big up to Talk Sport for broadcasting all the tributes for him this afternoon.

    Two stories I heard today:

    Ray said that his favourite smell in foofball was the first cut of grass, which meant the season was underway.

    A media friend he used to play golf with, said that he and his teenage son was out for a quiet round with Ray and he noticed the youngster was struggling as he was outgrowing his old clubs.

    A few days later Ray phoned his friend and asked if he could call round as he had something for his son. In the boot of his car he'd bought him a complete set of clubs!

    Such was the generosity of the man.

    There were lots and lots of amazing tributes for him.

    RIP Ray.
