2. Very, very sad.
Gary is still very much a local hero hereabouts.

My thoughts are with his family tonight.

Sleep well, Gary.

3. Well regarded in Sheffield also...
...where he played for and managed Sheffield United. This is one of those rare occasions when Unitedites and Wednesdayites are too shocked to bicker at each other.

4. I watched him on Football Focus on Saturday
and thought he was looking good. I was gobsmacked when I heard the news.

My thoughts go out to his wife and kids.

RIP, Gary.
