Sheer class from Leeds. When the poxy restaurant Bates built got a nice review, it was on the official site within minutes. A member of our last title winning side dies at a ridiculously young age, and we can't be arsed putting anything up.

Genuinely gutted about Speed, can't believe the lack of a response from the club.

Watched him on sports report yesterday - reports sugest it was suicide. Unbelievable.

Orcus

Just got told by the other half. Wow smiley - sadface

Did he suffer from depression or something - it seems very odd he would kill himself when everything seemed to be going so well for him? smiley - erm

It would appear a 'Leeds United spokesman' has sprung to life.

Although that could well be Psycorp.

Ferrettbadger. The Renegade Master

He was a really good player, and always came across really well in interviews and stuff seemed like a thoroughly decent sort.

So, do we write the collaborative entry? I seem to remember we got Marc Vivien Foe's entry featured on the front page within about a fortnight.

Be nice if we could get something similar up for Speed.
