Those were the days when a picture in the papers of a goalkeeper diving was still stunning rather than a bit meh.

He was a great keeper , it was very nice to see the tribute from Shilton saying he studied the best three keepers ever to get to the top , Gordon Banks , Lev Yashin and , drum roll , Peter Bonetti !

Bonetti was and is my top Chelsea player over the many years I have followed Chelsea..My heart was always with "The Cat" and my head with Gordon Banks.

I remember a game at SB way in the past with Banks playing … I was young of course and remember two older "grizzled" Chelsea guys talking just before KO" That Banks always plays well here".... "Hmm" I thought "He plays well everywhere"

Thanks Gordon...

I was lucky enough to see all three in real life many times (Bonetti doesn't come close)The question has been asked many times - who was the best keeper of all time?...Banks for me - and another keeper I watched many times that is right up there is Pat Jennings and both more than decent human beings.

RIP Gordon.
