Tragic news. Only 35.

He had skill and flair and scored some great goals but it didn't work out quite as well for him with us as many of us had thought it would - partly down to Manchester Mike Reilly's disgraceful refereeing and partly down to Henry's shameful treatment of the lad.

But he will always be an Invincible.

RIP.

I'll echo all of that, but especially the highlighted bit - he could and should have been a star for us, cos he had pace, skill and could finish.

RIP Jose..... Forever A Gooner

Sad news indeed!
His Arsenal career started so well, but I think he lacked the toughness reqd for the plge and his play was predictible.
By the end he was keeping the more talented Pires out if the team, which is why Henry had no time for him.

Couldn't settle off the pitch but you could see he was a very talented player rapid and a good striker of the ball.

35 years young is tragic RIP

Far be it for me to give those morons any credit, but the respect they should for Rocky's minute of silence on the day he died, should be acknowledge and respect given for that
