There’d be 4 or 5 of them in every game these days.


#182

agreed


#183

The poster in question had obviously been keeping one eye on Gordon Banks’ Alzheimers.


#184

He mustn’t have had a bob in his later life. He sold his World Cup winners medal.


#185

Medals mean very little when you have the memories.

Oh wait.


#186

A rare case of Banks going broke.


#187

It was the save of the century. I’ve never seen a better one.


#188

Now that I have been informed of that, of course not. Can I bring on a substitute?


#189

:rofl:


#190

Was that not Nicholas Parsons?


#191

Forgotten 2007/2008 already? Not like you Sidney!


#192

Better than @artfoley ?


#193

I never knock a footballer for seeking more money .


#194

That’s the English for you…throw you on the scrapheap when you ve gone past your use by date. Same happened with Bobby Moore

Was this one better?

Always sad to see a league of Ireland legend pass away. R.I.P. Gordon.


#196

Mick O’Brien the goalkeeper mentioned in that piece apparently had a fondness for swinging out of crossbars while waiting around in his goal. I’m told he once snapped two of them in the same game and was sent off for doing so (two yellow cards).

I think he played a few games for Dublin and was named to start in the 1980 Leinster final - but John O’Leary was famously thrown in to start for his debut by Kevin Heffernan just before throw in.


#197

Definitely remember him getting sent off in Athlone for breaking the crossbar. Philip Greene was the commentator


#198

An incredible save, one of the best ever


#199

The edgy soccer hipsters scrambling around furiously trying to find a better in save in somewhere like Bulgaria or Finland.


#200

Jerzy Dudek’s miracle save from Andriy Shevchenko at the end of extra-time in the 2005 European Cup final is the only serious rival to Bansky for the title of GSOAT.
