Awful news. It makes you wonder about the stresses that managers are placed under; all the more poignant with Robbie Savage having spoke to him yesterday and his appearance on Football Focus where there was no indication of anything wrong.

A Leeds United legend gone to join John, Billy and The Don.
Leeds fans sang his name for 11 minutes from the 11th minute in the Nottingham Forest - Leeds game last night.
I remember his early games in the days when I had a season ticket; I felt sick to the bottom of my stomach when I heard the news. The emotion shown over the last few days are a true measure of the man that he was.
