Ditto to all of that! Will never forget the match against Brazil in then 1970 World Cup. A truly amazing save which to me is still the best of all time.

Very sad news! RIP Gordon.

England's best ever keeper, in England's best ever side (better than 66, imo) against the world's best ever side.

The man was a Colossus in the pantheon of footballing greats.

RIP - one of my first true heroes.

Pele himself said 'I scored over 1000 goals, and all people talk about when they remember me is that save by Banks'

And what a save it was!!

RIP the original Banksy.

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

Absolutely gutted! A great goalkeeper but more importantly a thoroughly nice gentleman with humility and class oozing in abundance.

He actually never rated this his best ever save.
He felt his best save was from a Geoff Hurst penalty - Hurst used to really blast them but Banks managed to save the shot and palm it over the bar.

Its nice that whereas most goal keepers are remembered for their mistakes hes remembered for his saves. Along with Bobby Charlton and Bobby Moore he was an all time great.

Drove down with my old man yesterday to the Stoke to pay my respects. I never met the legend Gordan Banks but my dad met him countless times. A thoroughly nice human being and a gentleman. My old man was in tears
