RIP Gordon Banks.

Gordon Banks RIP - What an absolute legend of a keeper he was during his tenure between the sticks at Leicester, Stoke City and for England. So saddened to hear of his passing. I recall his days as a player and as a spokesperson for ‘The Beautiful Game’; something he saw in football during his heydays. As a commentator he would never pull punches but was also very fair in his assessment of a game. As a World Cup winner he was very humble and yet proud of his (and his fellows) achievements. To this day England have never had a keeper of his ability. God rest you Banksie (the original one).
