RIP Bill Turnbull

edited September 1 in Football

What terrible news. Bill has sadly passed away.

I’m sure we all have great memories of listening to Bill on commentary. It was a pleasure to share the pitch with him at the Sergio Torres event. He was a true gentleman who had time for everyone.



  • Oh no. Very sad.

  • Terribly sad, RIP bill.

  • Forever a blue

  • What a top bloke, very sad.

  • RIP Bill 💙

  • RIP Bill, such sad news...

  • I have just heard this awful news. Bill was a good friend, fellow journalist and broadcaster and most importantly a proud Chairboy. Always smiling even in the face of adversity, he was a true gentleman and will be missed by so many.

  • So so sad, RIP Bill. Forever a Chairboy.

  • He was as nice a bloke in real life as you'd imagine him to be when you saw him on TV

    RIP Bill, and condolences to his friends and family

  • Shocking and very sad news. A total gentleman and a Blues supporting Legend. RIP Bill.

  • Nearly all of my favourite Wycombe commentary moments were from the Phil and Bill combo, particularly that Carlisle game. I've been trying to find highlights online with Bill's commentary but failed. I hope WWTV puts together some "best of" moments. RIP Bill.

  • RIP Bill 😞

  • I am also trying to search for my favourite commentary moment. It sticks in my mind but I can’t recall the match. It was a Matty Bloomfield goal and Bill’s commentary genuinely left me with goosebumps.

  • Terrible news. Such a lovely guy. So grounded and normal. Just stood in the bar and chatted away with all other passionate fans. Sad sad day.

  • RIP Bill. A true legend

  • Wycombe legend and such a lovely guy, RIP Bill.

  • Oh no... that is incredibly sad news.

    Wycombe through and through. Legend. RIP 🙏

  • Saying legend hardly does the man justice, RIP Bill.

  • Lovely guy. Would sometimes have a beer with him after the game. You could never get bored of his company. So sad we'll never see him again.

  • Desperately sad news….RIP Bill.

  • Had the pleasure of chatting to him a couple of times over the years. Lovely guy and absolutely passionate advocate for our club. RIP Bill and condolences to his family

  • Very sad news. RIP.

  • Sad news indeed. Condolences to those family and close friends grieving his passing.

  • Such sad news.

    Was always delighted to meet Bill in the queue for the real ale counter or in the Frank Adams Stand.

    So glad that he was one of the few allowed into Wembley in July 2020 to see us promoted.

    On a personal angle, i will be eternally grateful that he was able to go public about his diagnosis of prostate cancer from which the rest of us learned so much about this killer disease. Let us now hope that routine testing of men over 50 is brought in as a great legacy to Bill.

    sincere condolences to his family.

  • RIP Bill, only met a few times but very nice guy and great sometimes impartial summariser, a proper fan. Also great broadcaster really showing up some of the desperate shock jock types he covered for in more recent times. Best wishes to his family.

  • That's terrible news. What a lovely bloke, and a man who retained his enthusiasm for life throughout his illness. RIP Bill.

  • I first saw the very sad news on The Huffington Post site which shows just how many people he was important to. Thoughts with his family and all fellow Wycombe fans this morning. Rest in Peace Bill.

  • very sad news, what a gentleman he was RIP

  • Some really nice tributes across Twitter and other media.
