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.

  • Bloody hell!!! I’ve just read on the official site that Sam Ellis is staying on at the Lane 🙁 If it’s announced that he’s the new manager instead of Speed I’m gonna snap my season ticket in half!!!

  • and for new sighnings apperntly there speeds gunner have time to fetch 1 or 2 more thats it apparently dont no how right this is though

  • 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!!!
