1343. SickOfScareMongerersThat's a nasty comment about one of England's greats, who could also be classed as one of the World's greats.Ask Pele.
1343. Posted by SickOfScareMongerersVile comment. Has some respect. Show some restraint!This HYS is about Gordon Banks. Not a forum for the likes of you to spit you bile.
"One of the greatest of all time"..... In England.You English really do think you are the centre of the earth. Don't even have the best player in Britain , that belongs to Wales. Ive no doubt either that your bank rolled "Top Clubs" will all fail once again to create any real challenge at the business end of the Champions league. Maybe they will some time thanks to the foreign players.
The tributes of ex-keepers Ray Clemence and Bob Wilson (recently aired on BBC) just about say it all. F A N T A S T I C !!!! What a keeper, gentleman and Tyke!
kjs a complete & utter bell of the Citizen proportions

The England team that won the Wc in 66 should have all be knighted.Banks was simply magnificent.Values completely lost on most of todays players.Gordon, RIP, you were loved and respected.A fitting epitaph.
RIP our Gordon... Leicester City's World Cup Winner. Unforgettable.
The word "great" is banded about too easily these days to describe players ....... but Banks really was a great.
look at the great british keepers around in those days ..banks bonetti alex stepney gordon west shilton clemence jennings bob wilson..and around today? uhmm...no one...pickford?
the only save comparable ..was jim montgomerys save in the 1973 cup final... thats was an incredible save on a par with banks save I would say..
As an ex-keeper - Banks' save was unbelievable. Pele's header was perfect. Aimed at the corner of the goal, bouncing in front of the keeper, and going like a bullet. Banks was several feet away from the ball and only had a split second to react - just look at it in normal speed. Only goalkeepers will appreciate what it takes to pull off a save like that. He inspired me to become a keeper. Legend.
WOW...There’s some sick , twisted people in our society,Some of them have been on this HYS page.RIP Banksy.
Gordon "what a save" Banks, forever in our hearts, a true legend.
