Blades Hero Gives Speed Backing

Blades Hero Gives Speed Backing

Sheffield United legend Brian Deane believes Gary Speed will be a success at Sheffield United.

Deane, who played alongside the Welshman for Leeds United told Yorkshire Radio of his admiration for his former teammate.

'He was a fine professional, well liked and very intelligent.'

'Speedo has played all of his life in the top division and people respect him. So I think it is a good appointment. He will bring some fresh ideas and it is a win situation for the club.'

It's expected that Speed's appointment will be confirmed at a news conference called for this afternoon at Bramall Lane.

Maybe Deano's looking for the number 2 spot alongside Speed?

They announced it on Radio Sheffield and it said Ellis had left on the previous article on here Kopblade. I got my hopes up only to see them dashed! :( I read Warnock's comments about Paddy on the QPR site. He said we hadn't offered him a new deal at the end of last season and we were gonna talk to him about it at Xmas and then QPR came in for him and we offered him a 3 year deal staright away. If that's true then I stand by my view that he's a greedy judas b******d!!!
