David Speedie is my number one villain
He was a firebrand, a real hothead
Playing today he wouldn’t last long
For all the cards of yellow and red.
Playing with heart firmly on his sleeve
And with lots of passion in his soul
He would give you one hundred per cent
And always had an eye on a goal.
He was quite small in stature
But scored lots of goals with his head
The Sky Blue Fans loved him at Coventry
And I bet he was a hero to the Chelsea Shed.
His fiery character and temperament
Earned him a “loose cannon” reputation
But he still performed at the highest level
And won caps playing for the scottish nation.
To bring Speedie to Coventry City F.C.
They paid Chelsea £750,000 pounds
It was definetely money well spent
“Speedo” came the chant at all the grounds
So yes he was mister volatile
And he ran around on a short fuse
But to me he is a true legend
A villain and hero for the Sky Blues !
