RIP Gary Speed

I was very sorry to hear yesterday of the death of Gary Speed. He was one of the few really nice people in football. His untimely death is very sad and my heart goes out to his family and friends. I am very grateful that I was able to see him play as a young man in the Leeds midfield with Gordan Stachan and David Batty when the went on to win the very last First Division Championship. In a time when every Tom Dick or Harry are held up as world-class players, Gary Speed played the game and lived his life in a dignified way.

A truly truly nice guy who will be sadly missed.

About robin1953

Hi I am a 57 year old man living in York, with my wife Jill. We have three grown up childred, and two grand children, Tim and Noah. I've been cycling all my life, but I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years back, so the cycling became more important. I did well for a few years, but slowly the weight went up. Update; how time flys, I'm now 60 still battling the weight but still riding.
