Very sad and shocking news, he was a great player and and promising young manager. I hope the roumers that it was suicide turn out to be false. And I hope Swansea do him proud today, let's see them do Villa.

R.I.P Gary Speed.

Wtf??

I saw him on Football Focus or another sports channel only yesterday!

If it's nothing suspicious..that would mean the death could be attributed to..?


Very confused..He was a decent football player too.

R.I.P.

EDIT: Ok, I didn't read the articles properly..But it says he killed himself. Just wonder what coulda lead him to do that..

No need for a comment like that really, he's only just died a few hours ago after all.

If all you have is comments like that... keep them to yourself.

Yes the world keep's turning after the death of one man but still, this is absolutely tragic news which has devastated a lot of people around the UK and particularly those in Wales who he managed at the time of his death. He was such a massively respected individual and this really is just a sad loss to a lot of people.

It was only a few years ago now that we was still watching him play.


R.I.P Gary Speed.

It was suicide then, watching Robbie Savage crying on the news interview was gutting, had to fight to hold back the tears myself, and I'm no fan of Savage, but I felt absolutly gutted for him. So sad, he was set to be the best manager Wales had ever seen.

Agreed and to be honest that's what makes this more sad than it already is.

He was only 42 years old remember and the results he was getting with Wales, particularly the more recent results, were fantastic. He was really turning thing's around there and there's just no doubt that he had a great managerial career ahead of him, this after an incredible playing career.

Such a shame that his life ended so prematurely.

A tragedy, RIP Gary. A great footballer and would have been a great manager too. Especially with Bale at his disposal for the national team.

Football has lost a true footballing soul.

I can't imagine why someone would want to take their own life. This is just terrible.

A true legend, a great footballer and by all accounts a great person.
He had transformed the Welsh national team.

Watching Shay Given was heart rendering.

A great loss to Welsh and British football.

His family must be devestated.

R.I.P. Gary.

Man this is a tragedy.
He always seemed so together and professional on and off the field.
Just shows you can never tell what goes on in the mind of others.
So sad for his wife and boys.

Siwrne dda Gary.
(Good Journey)

RIP Gary Speed.

A true professional and gentleman.

I have never supported any of the teams he played for, but I always admired his longevity in the game. So sad for his family and for genuine football supporters.

you're right, it doesn't make sense at all. But then, it just goes to show, those around him said he seemed happy and normal, you never know what's going on under the hood. His career was going well, he had a family. There must have been something going on which has driven him to this. It's just such a waste

It's just incredible to me that someone with no signs or history of depression, with everything to live for, is found hanged, leaving no note (who would do that to their family?) - the media says "suicide" and everyone just accepts it! Drives me crazy. I don't believe for a second this guy committed suicide. From what little I've read, he sounds like the last person on anyone's list to top himself. I have no knowledge of UK football - can anyone answer any of the following questions:
- enemies?
- cui bono?
- major controversies in his career?
- candidate for any important positions?
- any history of provocative political positions/statements?
- speculation? (I'd hope someone would at least speculate about my death, were it as suspicious as this!)

Sad day


No matter what allegiances one has Speed will always be respected as a great footballer and top guy as well.
Thoughts go out to the boys who have lost their Dad and all those who knew him.

Not that im aware of,this guy was the model professional,i dont think theres any conspiracy here,i know from experience when a friend of the family killed herself totally out of the blue with no signs of depression or anything,i guess its so hard to tell when people put a brave face on and bottle everything up,i know when ive been depressed in the past,i felt i could never talk to anyone,i didnt want to burden my friends or family with my problems and i never will if i go down that root again,stupid i know but thats just the way it is for some!
