We live n this crazy world,where everyone goes over the top about a Celebrity/Sportsman passing away.

But Banksie is a real legend.A man that produced the greatest save on the greatest stage in probably the most memorable match in World Cup History.

The man himself was class..So humble and level headed.There are not many like him.

You did your country proud SIR.

You've only got to look at Moore's reaction when he saved that. He can't believe it. :o

RIP Gordon Banks.....I was lucky enough to sit next to him for and England v Brasil match in 1992..... a real gent and an honor to meet him......I did have a dig at him about the Hurst penalty he saved in the League cup semi final though ...but he took it well.

My number 1 goalkeeper of all time... RIP Gordon Banks , a true legend in your own right.

It just shows you how great you are, when other team supporters respect this genius of a man, despite him playing in other teams.

The majority of top goalies wouldn't have even moved for that Pelle header. He had to judge the bounce and quickly turn sideways because he knew the ball was going to pass him. He did that instinctively which makes him one of the best goalies f all time.
