Gary Speed – while at Newcastle United

Gary played for Newcastle from 1997 through 2004, and played under the great manager Bobby Robson, and Gary made 285 appearances for Newcastle with 40 goals.

In his great career he played for Leeds United, Everton, Newcastle United, Bolton and Sheffield United, and played a total of 841 games with 136 goals, and he also managed Sheffield United and the Welsh National team, before he died so young at 42.

We will never forget Gary’s many contributions to football at all the clubs he played for, but especially at Newcastle United.

Rest in peace – Gary Speed.

    Excellent, underated midfielder, who always had the knack of knowing where to be when the ball rebounded out from a blocked shot to build again. My favorite memory of him is Shearer’s testimonial, when it felt so right to see him in our colours again, along with other underated talents like Steve Watson. RIP Gary.
