Speedo Would Have Been 50 Today

I've just been on Twitter and saw that Gary Speed's name was trending, so I thought I'd have a look to see what was going on.

Today would have been his fiftieth birthday.

As a former Newcastle United fan, but still very much Welsh, I always enjoyed watching that guy play. I know I've written many, many posts about him following his passing almost eight years ago.

One thing I always think about is what could have been in regards to his job as Wales boss.

When Speed left, that team had a lot of promise. For the first time in quite a while, I felt something good about what was being built.

I feel bad even wondering because Chris Coleman came along, took on what Speed left, and did a magnificent job himself.
