RIP Gary Speed 1969 – 2011

Sad and tragic news broke today about the passing of Gary Speed, who took his own life.

Gary Speed had an illustrious career playing for five different clubs and receiving 85 caps for Wales.

I’ll always remember Gary Speed for his unsung hero’s role in Sir Bobby Robson’s midfield, his galvanising displays in the Champions League, and those headers against Kiev and PSV.

This tragic news of Gary Speed’s passing, plus the news about the tragic deaths of six Togo footballers, puts football into perspective.

Footballer. Son. Father. Husband. RIP Gary.
