I have just heard of the death of Gary Speed, at the age of just 42, the Welsh national football manager.
From all accounts he was a real gentleman and a very nice fella,as well, of course as a good player who had a long career, in the Premier League and with Wales.
Very sad news for all his family, friends and fans .... and for anyone interested in football at all.

Tragic. Reported as suicide. He was doing well as manager, had an apparently settled family life and seemed fine on live TV yesterday.

Watched the Swansea - Aston Villa match today - very sad news indeed for us all in Wales. I guess we can never be sure just what goes on in other folks hearts & minds.

He has always come across as a really lovely man, and I was very proud to watch the last 4 Welsh International games - a fitting tribute to the man.

Very sad.

A true gentleman of the football fraternity, not many gentlemen in football these days so its a big loss when you lose a man of his stature...

Gary Speed RIP
