Absolute Legend of the English game, World Cup winner, a save that will be shown forever and used as a benchmark for all great goalkeeping saves now and in the future.

Rest in peace Gordon.

Oi niitä aikoja, oi niitä aikoja

Tuo aika nuoruuden
Ne tahtoisin niin elää uudelleen

Best keeper of his era by far and a really nice modest man as well,

RIP  Gordon you will be remembered not only for winning the world cup but that save from Pele among loads of others.

Use to come in and buy a pie from my shop. A lovely man and an absolute gentleman. Did a lot for the charities in the area.
When I think of some of the people they give knighthoods to its a tragedy they didnt find room to give him one.
