Stoke City has announced the death of one of the worlds greatest goal keepers and their former keeper Gordon Banks.

A legend.

He was one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time. Watched him in the World
Cup in 1966.
Sad his International career ended with an eye injury.
Fine tributes from Pele, Bobby Charlton and others.

I think even Monty would acknowledge that Gordon Banks was the best Goalkeeper in England and that save was even greater than his in the 1973 cup final
