    Absolutely devastated by this news. He was my favourite player for us. So dynamic and sublime skill. I wish he'd been with us longer, and I would have loved it if he came back to us as a coach under Unai. On an old forum my screen name was in his honour.

    It's so tragic to say goodbye to him at such a young age. Just two years older than myself. My heart goes out to his friends and family and anyone ever touched by his greatness. The way our former players speak of him, you can tell how beloved he was by those around him. I pray next season we win the Europa League in his memory. Maybe the players can't do it for us, the fans, but maybe, just maybe, they can do it for him.

    Rest in peace, José xx

    This gets even more grim as his 23-year old cousin also has died and a friend is in serious condition in the hospital.

    :(

    I remember his six goals on six games. He got called up by Spain and Luis Aragones tried to "motivate" him in a unique way. The pictures of Reyes' face still make me smile. RIP.

    So did I. He was so young and unworldly and had no idea how to react. His face just said WTF :lol:

    Think things were weird between him and Thierry on the pitch too after this.

    Found better quality. One of my favorite goals/moments. Did a "Messi on Boateng" before it was meme-worthy.

    He was homesick and things were awkward. Reyes actually played in his shell to try and "apologise" for something that wasn't his fault. Watching Becks subbed off and his brace to win Madrid the title was another highlight for me. He's the calibre of young player that I want to see at our club-with more steely mentality of course.

    RIP Jose, I have good memories of you playing for us in that classic 02 kit when I was younger. Thoughts with the family.

    So very sad. He was immensely talented and a joy to watch. I wish it had turned out differently for him here. Between missing home and scum like Scholes and Neville being allowed to kick him to shreds with impunity I think we were robbed of a club legend. Wonderful player on his day. I'm so sad for his family.

    I'm shocked beyond words. The first Arsenal transfer that really got my heart racing.

    Only just heard about this, awful news. I remember him joining and being so excited that such a player would be wearing the Arsenal shirt. RIP Jose!

    Yes me too. Obviously not posting them, his 23 yr old cousin also died but amazingly a friend has survived but with burns. Absolutely tragic, he was still playing as well at 35.
