    Just announced it in Sky Sports News. Thought they were breaking news of some old codger that has died, when they announced it was Speed I did a complete double take and listened again to make sure I hadn't been hearing things.

    This is just horrible.

    Always really rated him as a player and seemed like a really good man.

    Things seemed to be going so well for him as well, just terrible.
