As a Newcastle United fan since childhood, i am honestly numbed by the recent news of Gary Speed passing. Numb because of the manner of his death. "Utterly in disbelief" is perhaps the correct phrase to describe my feelings upon hearing & reading the news. Although i am not really a fan of him during his playing days at Newcastle but i do acknowledged his phenomenal contribution for the club. He was like the gel between the defenders and attackers. A workhorse of a man.
Rest In Peace Gary Speed.
