Very sad to read of his death on SkySports. May he rest in peace - thank you for some of the best memories during my youth.

Hope there's a grand farewell for him on Saturday

Sad news. Great manager and by all accounts a top bloke.

I listened to Eamonn Holmes podcast the other day with Steve MacLaren and hadn't realised just how influencial Jim Smith had been.

He was a proper old school football man. We had a magical few years with the Bald Eagle in charge. In 1996, after the Palace game that saw us promoted, I managed to get to him on the pitch during the melee and say “thank you”.

One of my favourite Graham Richards commentaries was that Palace game.

"They're theerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeee."

RIP Jim n hope we can recreate some of the magic we had under you.
