Post subject:  Gordon Banks RIP

Greatest English goalkeeper and a lovely bloke. Met him a couple of times as he used to shop in the Potteries and attend local games, especially the Vale v Stoke derbies. Once I was on one of the local shopping centre car parks and was about to put the money in the slot when a voice from behind me warned me that the machine was broken and it would swallow all my change - it was the man himself and very typical of his down to earth ways. One of my former students posted a photo of a card that GB sent to him on his wedding day, such a nice chap that he was.

And then there was that save from Pele.
