GARY SPEED 1969-2011

A footballing legend and true gentleman tragically lost his life after being found in his home early Sunday morning. He will always be remembered for all the right reasons. A role model both on and off the field, he was a remarkable footballer who had a distinguished career in the Premier League.

“He began his playing career at Leeds United after coming through the trainee ranks, and was part of the side that won the last Football League title in 1992, before the introduction of the Premier League.

He left Leeds in 1996 after 312 appearances to join Everton - whom he went on to captain - in a £3.5m move.

Newcastle followed, in a £5.5m switch in 1998. During his six years with the Magpies, he suffered two FA Cup final defeats, but enjoyed a taste of Champions League football.

He then spent four years with Bolton Wanderers after agreeing a £750,000 move and finished his playing career at Sheffield United, retiring at the end of the 2009-2010 season.

Speed, who was the first player to reach 500 Premier League appearances, also won 85 caps for his country - a record for an outfield player.”

Most recently he became the manager of Wales and after a shaky start turned the team and results around, with their most recent result a 4-1 friendly win against Norway.

The tributes from fans, friends and colleagues have poured in, showing that he was loved across the world by all. It is a tragic loss of such a wonderful professional who will be remembered eternally.

He was the perfect footballer for everyone to look up to. A leader; a grafter; and a mentor to many. His hard work, drive and determination on the field lead to many young footballers looking up to him and asking for guidance, which he was always willing to give. He always had time for fans and was more than happy to wait around for hours after training and matches to sign memorabilia and stand for photos. Gary Speed will be sorely missed by not only his family and friends but football supporters worldwide.

“One by one
Only the Good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
We'll remember -

And now the party must be over
I guess we'll never understand
The sense of your leaving
Was in the way it was planned...

So we grace another table
And raise our glasses one more time
There's a face at the window
And I aint never, never saying goodbye...

One by one
Only the Good die young
They're only flyin' too close to the sun
Cryin' for nothing
Cryin' for no-one
No-one but you” Freddie Mercury (Queen)
