    Tragic early end to one of the great underdog stories in football. When you read about his early life just incredible he could put his home team on his back, be a huge asset in that Arsenal squad & even win the title for Real Madrid.

    The Zidane quote about early Reyes always stuck with me.

    Puta, puta carreteras en Espana.

    Bloody roads have claimed so many lives in Spain. RIP amigo, those misshapen Neville brother abortions ended your career here but never forget his sunny smiles and joy when things went well.

    Happened in Lauren's backyard too.

    I remember the Neville brothers kicking the crap out of Jose because he was just too good for them.

    And they got away with it the filthy pieces of horsedung. With help from the dishonest referees. But of course we have a chip on our shoulders. If I see any tribute to Pepe from that filth I am calling him out on it.

    This hit me way too hard. Terrible news.
    R.I.P Reyes, my thoughts are with the family. Part of my teenager years died.

    Feeling incredibly sad. Absolutely loved him. Still remember how excited I was when he signed. So many great memories, coming off the bench at Highbury to score twice in his debut against Chelsea, goal against Boro, running riot againat United in the Charity Shield and the matchwinning goal at home to Sp**s in the last season at Highbury. Seemed like such a lovely and likeable guy. Rest in peace Jose Antonio.

    Wenger using "our" when referring to Arsenal. "Our club".

    Damn, this is tragic. Was such an exciting player. He had such an unbelievable start to his Arsenal career. I was so hyped after his Chelsea performance like every other Arsenal fan, it was a shame it didn't work out in the end. Sad news for us.

    United fans bring that up as if it's something to be proud about, disgusting scum. Speaks volumes of their fanbase that they celebrate that type of thuggish play, but I never expected better from them.

    It reminded me of the treatment Inter Milan meted out to Jimmy Johnstone in the European Cup semi final in 1974. Neville and his like were no better than Italian hatchet men. Here is another comparison : Sir Alf Ramsey referring to the 1966 Argentinians as animals (their captain Rattin especially). Yet I bet Neville and the others - and their manager - would refuse to accept the comparison. But it is true.
