¿ I've cried already today ... Bill is up there with the best managers. Nobody has done any better than him.
Dave Mackay, a Tottenham captain under Nicholson
¿ I am amazed he wasn't [knighted]. He did so much for the game and the club and people forget that he lived in Tottenham for 60 years. He did so much for the community.
Cliff Jones, former Tottenham winger
¿ One of my great memories was the day he bought me and brought me into this great club ... He has left a great legacy behind.
¿ He was an unbelievable man and an unbelievable gentleman. I'm sure he would have survived in the Premiership today.
Pat Jennings, former Spurs goalkeeper
¿ He was a true football man and a perfectionist.
¿ People forget what a great player he was ... He scored on his only appearance for England with his first touch of the ball and was an outstanding player.
Mel Hopkins, a team-mate of Nicholson when Spurs won the league in 1951
