Today would have marked the 47th birthday of Gary Speed.

It shows how quickly time moves on, that it is almost 5 years since we all heard that shocking news.

Like all people who have achieved in their lives, we think it is important to celebrate Gary Speed’s life and what he gave us all in his time at St James Park as a player in black & white.

A great man who represented Newcastle United in the best way possible at all times and as you’ll be reminded by this classic footage, a player with great ability.

I’ll never tire of watching this fitting tribute.
