Guys my condolences. Even though I'm a Villa fan I saw Ralph Coates play over the years. He was a truly great player and a legend. Hope you guys make it back to the top - both clubs founder members of the league.

Just saw the news on TV. Very sad and my avid Spurs supporting wife adds her sympathy. The photo above is exactly as I remember him giving me fond memories to lessen my sorrow.

I'd just finished a long and complex business phone call with a colleague who is a Spurs season ticket holder and who has a great fondness for Burnley following our epic games in the 60s. I took a moment to relax and look at the official club site, only to find this; and quickly called my Spurs colleague back to share the sad, sad news. In days to come we'll be sharing many, many great memories too.

Heard it on the 11am news on talk sport coming home from work although feeling sad I sang a couple of the Ralph Coates songs that we fans use to sing about our Hero. My thoughts go out to his family.

Many great memories but I remember him at a St Andrews bowling night in Burnley, where he was presenting the winning trophy, he took time to speak to me and my dad as we watched the final. I was only perhaps 10 or 11 and he signed an autograph for me. One of my favourite ever players, RIP. Sad news and deepest sympathy to family, friends and his many supporters.

Really sad to hear this bad news. One of my favourite players of the 60's/70's as well , I always used to think of Coates as our Bobby Charlton. RIP the Midfield General.

i was born a little too late to see him play but heard a lot from my dad. I caught the end of the bbc london report saying the former spurs & Orient player no meantion of being a true claret. RIP
