Sad, sad news today at the sudden death of Welsh football manager Gary Speed.
Only last week I was chatting to a friend who's a Swansea fan. Gary Speed came up during our football banter, and we were saying what a great manager he was for Wales, and what a good character he seemed to be in his whole professional life.
The news this morning, which seems to state that he committed suicide, came as a real shock and one can only surmise that he was under some hidden pressure or depression. The world can be a terribly sad place at times.
Keep Gary Speed in your prayers, the Good Lord knows that he, like all of us, needs them.
