Eight years on but I’ll never tire of watching this Gary Speed video tribute

4 years ago

Today marks the eighth anniversary of Gary Speed’s sad passing.

It shows how quickly time moves on that it is already eight 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 and 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.

Gary Speed joined Newcastle United in 1998 and gave great service.

Kenny Dalglish signing the midfielder for the Magpies but it was under Sir Bobby Robson that Gary Speed really excelled.

In both the Premier League and domestic cups, as well as of course in Europe, especially the Champions League, Speed was a key figure in that very good team.
