Sad News.
RIP.

Remember that remarkable save to deny Brazil striker Pele at the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.

A really great keeper, modest and a gent.
RIP



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Yes only 34 when he was forced t retire.
FIFA goal keeper of the year five times running.
The only better keeper I ever saw play was Lev Yashin

Heard numerous reports stating "One of England's best ever keepers".

Easily THE best, not even in question.
