How did Terry Neill die?

Arsenal club confirmed the news on his website by saying,

It was with great sadness that the club learned of the death of former manager and captain, Terry Neill, aged 80.

Arsenal commended Neill’s “combination of tenacity, vision, and natural leadership” as a player in a statement.

The statement continued, “After succeeding at Hull City, Terry was named manager of Tottenham Hotspur in September 1974 and in June 1976 made the quick trip back to Highbury to fill the manager position left vacant by Bertie Mee.

“By enlisting former teammate and top strategist Don Howe to work with him, he pulled off a masterstroke that helped the Arsenal become one of the nation’s most successful cup teams.

“Terry didn’t work in football management again, but he continued to be a regular at Highbury and eventually Emirates Stadium. He was also a well-liked TV analyst and a columnist for several magazines.

“Everyone connected to the club will always be grateful for his outstanding contribution and his character. During this trying time, our prayers are with Terry’s family and close friends.”

There has been no information on Terry Neil’s death or how it happened.

 

Terry Neill Cause of death

So far, no cause of death has been revealed. There are no reports that the former captain was lately or long-term ill. We have been attempting to get in touch with the family and relatives, but no one has responded. Once there is enough information, we will update this page.

After Alan Sunderland gave Arsenal the victory, Neill said that he had felt relieved. Neill earlier told the Mail on Sunday, “United had nothing to lose late, we were starting to look tired and needed new legs.” Although Stevie [Walford] was speedy, David Price had done a terrific job, so it made sense. The rest is history.

 

Terry Neill Career

Belfast-born Neill played more than 270 games for the club between 1957 and 1970 and was the club’s youngest captain in his 20s.

When Neill returned to coach Arsenal at the age of 34, Arsenal won three straight FA Cups under his leadership.

The defender earned 59 international caps, including one while serving as player-manager for Northern Ireland.

Neill, who was born in 1942 and had previously played for Bangor’s junior squad, signed for Arsenal for £2,500 in 1959.

At the age of 18, he made his first-team appearance, and he quickly became Arsenal’s youngest captain—a record that still holds.

When Neill concluded his playing career as the player-manager of Hull City, he was 28 years old.

When asked who was listed as the first name on his squad sheet when managing Northern Ireland as a player, he famously replied: “Me! Then  George Best and Pat Jennings followed.”

Neill also took great pride in the fact that, fifty years ago, when Northern Ireland defeated England at Wembley, he scored the game’s only goal.

After taking over Tottenham, an opponent of Arsenal, and succeeding the great double winner Bill Nicholson, he returned to Highbury as the club’s youngest manager in modern history.

Arsenal was once again recognized as one of the premier teams in the nation as a result of the signings of great players like Malcolm MacDonald and Jennings as well as the development of exceptional young talent like Liam Brady, and Frank Stapleton, and David O’Leary.

Don Howe led Arsenal to those three consecutive FA Cup finals after being hired as their coach at that point, and they won the cup in a thrilling manner when they faced Manchester United in the 1979 championship game.

Days before losing to Valencia in a penalty shootout in the 1980 European Cup Winners’ Cup final, Neill then guided the squad to their third Wembley final.

Neill left the game at the age of 41, having left Arsenal in 1983. After that, he sought a lucrative media career.

Timeline … Arsenal wins the double in 71. That side breaks up, and we become dire and boring. Then comes Terry Neil. Arsenal return, Supemac, Pat Jennings, Brady, four Cup finals. We could hold our heads high again. Thank you Terry Neill for bringing excitement to my teenage years. RIP Terry

Rick Walla said, 

A beautiful, lovely man.  we met at his bar next to Holburn Viaduct I believe it was inside.  To see a Toon vs. Utd game, my Utd fan friend drove me there.  “I hear you follow The Arsenal,” a deep, gentle voice whispered as a hand landed on my shoulder. A great guy who spent time with us and enthusiastically discussed his career at both Arsenal and Spurs. True football player. going to miss ya. R.I.P. Mr. Neill.

Joffrey said, 

As a Chelsea fan met him with my dad after we beat them, a gentleman, a good footballer, good manager, and most of all a decent likable human being , and thanks for the pint Terry, my dad’s got one waiting for you upstairs rip.

R Stocker said, 

I met Terry at his sports bar in Holborn in the late 90s. He was one of the friendliest, most welcoming people I’d ever met. A sad loss
