A sad loss to football and all genuine fans will feel a tinge of sadness today. Finney came from a different generation with different values. He was always respected and his opinions and loyalty valued. This message comes from a Manchester United supporter and from the football family as a whole.


My dad's favourite player. When ever he spoke of him it made me wish I could have seen just once. An absolute legend!! RIP Sir Tom Finney simply the best ever.

Like many Prestonians I met Sir Tom several times. He had that gift of making you feel important, that it was you that mattered not him. He was not just giving out a prize or a cup, he was there to meet people, offer encouragement and just have a chat. A true gentleman and 100% "Mr Preston".

We all knew Sir Tom was getting on and that his health wasn't to good recently, but that doesn't make it any easier to accept the loss at his passing.

It will be hard to hold back the tears at the match this afternoon.

A True gentleman and a true legend of the game. Some players are greater than club or even national rivalry and Sir Tom Finney was one of those. May he rest in peace

Just had the sad news that Mr (Sir) Finney has passed away...I saw him play a few times in the 1950's when I was a young bloke, I'm a supporter of Wolves and it was a pleasure to have seen him in action. RIP Sir Tom my sincere condolences to his family and friends.....Roly J

RIP Sir Tom Finney.
Thank you for the memories. A footballing legend, as Bill Shankly said..."the best thats ever been' A true gent, you lived your life with dignity and your humility always shone through. You are an inspiration and example to us all.


Tom Finney to me was the greatest player of all time, bar none! I went to see England play Ireland in 1957 in Dalymount Part in the World Cup qualifier! Ireland were 1 up with a minute to go and Tom Finney gets the ball and he beat man after man, came down to the byline and crossed the ball for John Atyeo to equalize and the whole stadium was stunned into silence! And we stood there and didnt move a muscle for 10 minutes! As a result Ireland failed to qualify! Tom Finney was my hero regardless! RIP a true legend!

As a Durham Lad and a supporter of Newcastle United you could say it was unusual being brought up with stories of other towns greats, of which Tom was. My grandfather related always told me of the amazing closeness these players had with their local communities. Even now I feel great sadness of the passing of Tom and of an era now lost. R.I.P great Sir.
