Speedie, David I met David and the Coventry football team in Nobby’s bar in Coventry when we were working down there. Me and my workmates joined them drinking and playing pool and having a good time. I told my mates I was going to wind David up and started telling him that Liverpool were interested in him. He asked me if I was serious and I said I know you are being mentioned in the club. He insisted that we join them as they were moving on and several pubs later the full team were thrown out of the Tally Ho pub for being rowdy. Imagine my surprise a few weeks later when Liverpool really did sign him, I couldn’t believe it.

Speedie, David David Speedie in his one and only season at Ewood would always give 100 per cent. Shame Southampton wanted him as part of the Shearer deal.

Speedie, David I remember climbing the metal fence at Coventry West End when Davis Speedie scored.

Speedie, David Only 5’7” but regularly outjumped 6’2” players when he was at Blackburn. Springs in his feet

Speedie, David An amazing, determined, hard, 110% effort giver in everything he ever does on or off the field. Speedo is my uncle although only 10yrs older and my mums only brother, he has been more like a brother to me as I grew up . He is a determined winner whether football, golf (beaten him numerous times) or trivial pursuit. It has given me so much joy and pride watching this man score goals all over the country that players a foot taller wouldn’t score! Top man. Thanks for all the free boots as well unc!

Speedie, David Yes I remember David playing with Chelsea but sold off to quickly. When at Liverpool he played only 12 games but still scored 6. Chelsea signed Kevin Wilson not as good as David.
