R.I.P Gary Speedo. You were one of the all time Welsh greats who gave their all. Through the 90s I thought he was going to go on forever wearing that Welsh shirt, and he truly did go all the way with the amount of caps he earnt.
I have to say from my point of view that Suicide is a self centred act, but who knows what drives a man or a woman to the point that they are prepared to end it all and leave behind a beautiful wife and 2 beautiful children.. He has seemed to be in good health and mind accoarding to his best bud Robbie Savage who was golfing with him the other day, and Dean Saunders and Ryan Giggs both said in the last week he seemed to be fine. Football focus was on only hours ago and he also seemed to be in good spirts.
I can only " presume " 3 things. Depression, Marital problems, Financial problems. Depression can go unoticed in some people for years if they keep it to themselves. He may have just been given the blow that his wife cheated on him, or he cheated on his wife and couldn't live with himself. Financial problems seems unlikely given the amount of money he would of earnt through his footballing career.
Eitherway a family is now without a husband and father just before xmas and this is a saddness I could never begin to imagine the pain of.
The reasons behind Gary Speedos death will come out over the next coming weeks i'm sure, but in the mean time we should remember the footballing legend and manager who will now sadly never get to show us how far he could of taken the Welsh team. We all know he was taking us in the right direction with results lately shooting us up the Fifa rankings, and now the whole Welsh nation is left feeling shocked and in limbo.
R.I.P Gary you Welsh footballing legend, I will miss you so much as will my friends and family.. My heart truly goes out to your wife and children at this sad time.
