He never played for my team, I'm not Welsh, but I'm gutted the world of footbal has lost him. Always thought he was a superb player and was turning into a superb manager.

RIP Gary Speed

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.

Dreadful news. So upesetting that some people are so distressed as to feel there is no other way than to take that route out of life.

Football in general. Last week a Bundesliga referee tried to commit suicide. A lot of pressure in the big money game now.

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.

I was standing behind the goal when this one went in................happier days.

I know nothing about this guy, not being a football fan, but I find it incredibly sad that he must have had, what he considered, un-surmountable problems.

When you think he was successful, good-looking, healthy, fantastic house, (what looks like) a nice wife and two healthy kids and to leave all that just now before Christmas it is all just too sad.

I saw his spot on Football Focus. I thought be looked very troubled.

I hope he has found himself in a better place.
and with that..cabin crew, seats for landing please.
