Usually football songs on the old internet are a bit ropey at best, but this is an utterly superb, polished and professional effort.

Lars Vaular is a rapper from Norway who has a bit of success in his home country. A serious Leeds fan, the 28-year-old has produced this excellent ode to Gary Speed which also dissects some of the club's highs and lows from the last 20 years, including the arrival of centre-half Lucas Radebe, the financial meltdown and the infamous Lee Bowyer and Jonathan Woodgate race attack trial.
