    Before my time but the respect he had, and has, illustrates he was a valued part of our glorious history.

    Part of the era that laid the foundation for what was to follow.

    RIP Tommy.

That first team lives on in the memory, so much so that I can reel it off even after more than 55 years. Lawrence Lawler Byrne Milne Yeats Stevenson . Callaghan hunt St John Smith Thompson . With Geoff Strong and Ronnie Moran used whenever they needed a sub, Shankly used to tell reporters It's the same team as last year. *********** gutted. RIP Tommy a true Liverpool legend
    Lovely post. Me too! When I graduated to the KOP our spec was right on the wall level with the right hand goalpost. So from there I often shouted support to Tommy. Great keeper, even better man.

    RIP

    My earliest memory of LFC was the 1965 F.A. Cup final. I have a photo on my desk of Yeats parading with the Cup. Tommy Lawrence kept a clean sheet and helped build the dynasty under Shankly. He will never be forgotten.

    Same here, always be remembered for being a excellent goalkeeper and last line of the defence during the 60's. Like most goalkeepers in that era, never wore gloves and goalkeeper shirts that weigh a ton especially in the rain yet he was remarkablt very agile. RIP Tommy and thank you for the memories.

    Clémence came in after Tommy. Just before my time so saw nothing of him live. Part of the original Reds so my sympathies to his family. May he RIP.

    Tommy would have been before my time as a Liverpool fan but I remember seeing that BBC vox pop interview with him that went viral which touched so many hearts around the world.

    Came across as a quiet, humble man. My thoughts are with the great man's family and friends today. YNWA.

    R.I.P Tommy

    Obviously never saw him play but a legend of the club, and the BBC video was a wonderful moment

    Sad news, before my time but my old man used to tell me all about him.

    Reckoned he was one of the first keepers to make use of his whole area & not just the 6 yard box.

    RIP Tommy

    YNWA Tommy..
