Toon Army Malaysia Tribute To Gary Speed

8 years ago

When the tragic news about Gary Speed reached us two years ago it was met with disbelief but as football fans the best way to show your respect and support was at the next game, Newcastle fans didn’t let anybody down and that included United fans around the world including Toon Army Malaysia.

Tens of thousands of us were in St.James’ Park for the match with Chelsea but many more couldn’t be there and marked the occasion in the best way they could.

It was a very emotional day and while it would be totally wrong to say that Newcastle getting beat by Chelsea didn’t matter in the greater scheme of things, it maybe didn’t hurt quite as much as fans’ thoughts were also with the family and friends of Gary Speed.

In the photo below this is how Toon Army Malaysia marked that day two years ago when they came together to remember Gary Speed and support the team.
