Excellent tribute to an excellent player just hope both Leeds and Millwall fans put aside their feelings towards each other and do the tributes justice.I am pretty sure they will.

When everone in football as one is mourning the death of not only a great player but also a great person, trust a Newcastle 'fan' to come on and try to upset people. What a poor excuse for a person you are. RIP Speedo
