As you know, I’m not a big soccer fan, but I knew that Gary Speed was a fine man and a fine player.
His death has shaken sports enthusiasts across these islands and has united supporters who would normally be entrenched opponents in sympathy for his family and for the man himself.
I didn’t like the speculation that was going around Twitter about this poor man’s death. He has a family and friends. This is the ugly side of the internet and I don’t like it.
