Gary Speed Remembered is a fascinating & moving tribute to one of the greats of British football. It is the story of a player who enjoyed two decades at the top of his profession. Few men have earned more solid reputations in football than Gary Speed & the football world mourned his passing when he died in November 2011. Regarded as one of the greatest players in Premier League history, Speed broke into the Leeds United team as a teenager & spent 20 years as a professional, winning a Football League champion's medal & 85 caps for Wales. In a career that saw him play for Leeds, Everton, Newcastle United, Bolton Wanderers & Sheffield United, Speed was always a fan favourite & highly regarded for his skilful, yet combative style. After injuries forced him to stop playing, Speed concentrated on coaching & following three months in charge of Sheffield United, was appointed manger of the Welsh national team. There were some early disappointments, but Wales enhanced dramatically & won FIFA's 2011 annual award for the team showing the greatest improvement in the year. This heralded the belief that he was leading Wales into a new golden era, which made the news of his tragic death all the more saddening. Written by a celebrated journalist, who followed his career from its earliest days, Gary Speed Remembered details his life in football & contains interviews with many former friends, teammates & managers. Gary Speed was one of football's good guys & this book is a fitting tribute to a Welsh legend. The size of this book is 24cm in height & 16cm wide with 240 pages.
