    Rest in Peace Alan McLoughlin.
    What a goal by him and what a substation by Big Jack in Windsor Park that night!

    Too soon, much too soon. I feared the worst reading the updates a few weeks ago, but you always hold out for hope.

    RIP

    Such sad news. I spent so many hours trying to perfect the "Alan McLoughlin" in my back garden; chest, one hop, strike. Made me improve my left foot! No age at all to be gone, but leaves an iconic moment in our hearts.

    I did the very same. Bounce it off the wall and catch it on the chest.
    In a moment where most people would have lashed their foot at that, he controlled it perfectly and just guided it into the net. I don't even think he was left footed was he?

    So sad. One of the few footballers who got a whole nation to jump out of their chair in joy! The memories of that goal during that cold Wednesday night in November will live on eternally. Rest in Peace Alan.

    I can't quite believe it.

    Awful sad news to get yesterday. Threw a few words down in tribute, some great memories.

    Listened to this podcast on the way to work this morning. Only 20 mins or so. Touching to hear his voice and describing the impact of his cancer and his pride in pulling on the irish shirt and scoring that goal.

    Very sad to hear this. A lot of life left to live at 54, I suppose its only as we all get older that age doesn't seem so old.

    Saw and heard of many fans meeting him out and saying he was a very unassuming, nice fella.

    I can still remember fairly clearly that night, down in my neighbours, my father and next door neighbour both GAA men really, the neighbour very much so, saying ah well sure they'll have to give us something, and my young neighbour my brothers age, at the time rolling his eyes up : ) Then down in their living room and even he got up off his seat, which rarely happened at any sporting event.

    Condolences to all his family and friends

    Fair brings a lump to the throat even with the wan smiles. Squires gets it spot on in that last panel.
