    Wales boss Gary Speed found dead

    Wales boss Gary Speed found dead - Telegraph

    Unbelievably sad news, as a Leeds fan Gary was a fan favorite for years and will be sorely missed. RIP.

    I presume this is the right place to put this. Turns out it wasn't.

    He hung himself according to the Telegraph. Horrific, tragic stuff.

    RIP

    Bloody hell. RIP.

    Always seemed the epitome of the level-headed, model pro. Professionally looked to have everything to live for.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Just listening to radio now and you can hear how hard this has hit everyone in football, you always get tributes, and especially in such horrible circumstances but the ones I am hearing seem so genuine and heartfelt.

    Awful for the players, managers and commentators involved today, Shay Given in tears during the minutes silence and Bellamy not in the squad for very understandable reasons.

    Yeah, seems to have been a genuinely nice guy that reached out to so many. Robbie Savage in tears on BBC News.

    Still hasn't really registered with me.. Seemingly my brain just isn't accepting that this has actually happened. So, so, so out of the blue.
    Just saw the Savage interview

    Completely shocking and extremely sad news.

    Still can't believe it. R.I.P.

    Gary McAllister's interview on SSN wasn't nice viewing. Almost started rambling.

    edit: Bryn Law breaking down live on SSN is easily one of the most uncomfortable pieces of TV I've ever seen. Was horrible to watch.

    Suicides are always very sad, but generally explicable on some level

    Saw the footage of his appearance on the Beeb on Saturday today - what on earth happened?

    The inquest may provide an answer I suppose

    The human mind is a funny thing. It's ghastly to think, but his happy persona on Football Focus might just be because he knew what he'd be doing later on and was at peace with himself.

    I also feel quite a bit for Robbie Savage, as Strictly Come Dancing is filmed on the Saturday for broadcast on the Sunday. So after breaking down on the BBC on Sunday when he was talking about Speed, the public are going to see him on a programme that looks like it's being broadcast live and Savage will be all smiley and normal, and will probably come across as a bit of a **** through no fault of his own.

    It's remarkable how universally liked he was given how polarising football can be- I'm not sure I can think of any footballer with fewer enemies than Speed had.
